Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: J9xxx Axxx --- Axxx
Fake reverse to 's after partner's 1 response is the "safe" lie when holding 3-card 's--can always correct 's back to 's. The possibly fake JS to 's is not safe from creating doubt about when/if raising 's is appropriate. Off ...
Who gets to sleep on the couch?
Ed, love your presentation, especially the O's and R's...should be Bridgewinners Standard. Very complete presentation, even if bidding 3-card minors by O after negative double by R over 2 may not be ideal...
Who gets to sleep on the couch?
Peg, order the Coleman air mattress, complete with an attached electric air compressor. Plug it in immediately after arriving home from the tournament, five minutes and you're under the covers.
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: J9xxx Axxx --- Axxx
ATB: North 90%, South 10%. I hate 2 opening with diamonds...2-2-3-begin guessing, compared to 1-1-2-begin accurate description. 1-1-3-3 is awful.
Todd Holes's bidding problem: T9843 2 AKQT AT5
Just being (overly) cautious, and giving my top-bracket opponents credit for some sanity. RHO with his six almost-solid spades, partner with his long suit and spade void...I don't want to run them out into clubs, and in my dreams they overbid to 3NT.
Winston Chang's bidding problem: AT52 985 T8 K842
The 2 bid has a wide range, yes. But the 3 bid does not ask min/max hcp--it asks for help in clubs (possibly based on AQXXX). A "hedging" bid of 3 instead of 4 would indicate a possible game acceptance without such obvious good help ...
Winston Chang's bidding problem: AT52 985 T8 K842
Yes, I thought about bidding 7 to show that:) Why not tell your partner what you have?
Winston Chang's bidding problem: AT52 985 T8 K842
7H. Clear acceptance of partner's "help-suit" game try in clubs.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 9 KJT43 KQ A8753
"Help-suit slam tries" often work well in this situation (avoiding the shortness control problem here) but controls-up-the-line may now be "expert standard"...is this new BWS 2017?
David Parsons's bidding problem: 9 KJT43 KQ A8753
5. Partner knows about our singleton spade, which means his actual hand is not fitting well. The 4 bid is still automatic, but the signoff over our 4 is our first clue that slam may not be that good. Instead of 4NT, continuing with a 5 ...
