Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ65 T92 4 AKT54
3, fit-showing, promising at least limit-raise playing strength. Using the approach that 3card support is sufficient, the most common distribution here is 5's and 3's, which also provides better frequency...and better description than 2 or 2.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ65 T92 4 AKT54
I like the way you think, but perhaps try for more frequency in your choice of methods...
David Parsons's bidding problem: 96 T72 AKQ6 QJ97
1. Good lead-director.
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: 6 AKJ76 AKQJ4 95
Thanks for reviving this hand from early March. I previously dropped out after the comment, "If 3 was quite successful, why did it generate a BW quiz?" The given "BW quiz" stipulated the 3 bid and the 4 response, which likely indicated possession of AK or AQ ...
1!c-2!d: What do you play it as (in 2/1)?
Invitational with 5 & 4+, an awkward hand to describe. (When holding 5 with 5, alternatives to 2 include 2 inverted or 2 showing 8-9 hcp with 5card clubs. This imperfect system is even more effective when playing weak/mini notrump, and can reach ...
Jovana Zoranovic's bidding problem: AKJT2 T7542 87 J
2...didn't notice the second suit.
What is your opinion about skipping 1!D after partner opened 1!C?
Similar Walsh rebid style as Ed and others, noting that bidding 1 holding a 4card major guarantees 5card (or 6card) diamonds. (Then continuations can include description of 2-2 or shortness.) Responder clarifies invitational vs GF at his second turn: 1-1-1NT-2>2-2M is invitational. 1-1 ...
What is your opinion about skipping 1!D after partner opened 1!C?
Bridge World Standard 2017 now bids 1 with 6+,skipping with 4-5.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AKJ53 87 86432 4
Was there an actual hand with this one? I was surprised to be in a small minority, with a different view from some whose opinions I value. If I were on a team with one particular friend, I might bid 1 just so I wouldn't risk hearing a ...
Christopher Donnelly's bidding problem: 5 AK97 Q6432 K83
Just play that double here promises one or two 4-card majors. (with the ability to bid over partner's two spades)
