Jeff Ford's bidding problem: T953 J64 642 KT3
Opener's pass of 1 is not usually played as forcing here. For example, a 17hcp balanced hand would not want to force partner to bid with 0hcp. 1 or 1 by West would normally indicate a 5-card suit, while double would be takeout. Although holding a ...
A survey of time preferences for NABC events - comprehensive (kind of) poll
I did want to comment with an observation that there are apparently more potential participants favoring late starts who "vote with their feet" by not attending those nationals with early starts. This results in late starts being the norm today.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T K96 AQT53 A752
Thanks, revised "good" to "bold". Quoting Kaplan, all questionable actions are "bold or foolish, depending on result." (Double should have been bold with the "two places to play" 2NT response to the double.)
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T K96 AQT53 A752
Yes, and I sense your agreement that the present problem should be addressed rather than abstaining. However I think different treatments as a side table are additive to the discussion. The unfortunate 3X result on this hand (after a "bold" takeout double by Peg) brought up another interesting treatment ...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: Q98742 AT K8 KT7
1. My 2 bids in fourth seat are not this good, a full opening hand with K,K,A values outside my suit. Agree with others that the range for a weak two should be about 10-13, hands that you don't want to pass out, but don ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T K96 AQT53 A752
The different position you have reached does not rate to be favorable for your side. The nonvul limited Precision 1 opener can be quite light, because they often are trying to steal your lunch.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T K96 AQT53 A752
Another possible treatment over the Precision 1 is to play 2 as Michael's along with 2 as natural. (Similar to the recommended defense over Polish 1, where 2 is natural and 2 is Michael's.)
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: KQT764 AQ54 85 2
Gavin was referring to "Baze over 1N" except switching the 4C/4D bids, right. Grant used 4 as Gerber(or RKC Gerber), easy to remember, while the switch allows more room for cuebids with the balanced slam try.
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: KQT764 AQ54 85 2
Using 2 with this hand pattern loses nothing with an extension of Smolen. After !N-2C-2D-3H-3N-4H is a transfer to 4S. (similar for 6H & 4S)
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T K96 AQT53 A752
I love the immediate 2 bid, which can make it much more difficult for West than bidding over a pass, while providing good lead direction and getting our side in the bidding. It is a must to play 2 natural over the Precision 1 opening. As it ...
