What is 2NT?
So one answer from one in the minors camp: I found it convenient for double to show both minors and some strength (say 9+) and 2N to be weaker. With a constructive minor suit freebid just bid 3m and on weak minor suit hands just pass, usually you are not ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
Martin, I do not know how much sense it makes to cater to a hand that is exactly inviational and wants to improve the contract at the 3-level. A bit weaker and you might just bid 3H over 1S to show 7 and a weak hand. You might very well ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
Fair point! I agree that 3S shows more naturally what you have (Spade stopper, no stopper) and lets partner still bid a doubleton heart or rebid good clubs or 3NT with a diamond stopper. Thus, slam should be reached more easily if partner skips 3NT. But why should he ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
3 should be forcing here (With a Min just pass 3C) so I bid that hoping to find a fit there. 3NT can still be reached after a 3S cuebid by partner.
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: Q973 AQ82 95 KJ6
I learned that 2 is inv.+ asking for further description (If invitational, responder must have 5+ hearts). So opener should tell by his rebid whether he is min or max but ofc other treatments are possible. The jump is certainly space-consuming.
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: Q973 AQ82 95 KJ6
We open only good 11s (usually have a 5 card suit or some useful spot cards). I like your idea of betting on some diamond length in partner's hand. What I do not like is wrongsiding NT, but there is clearly no perfect bid. At the table I thought ...
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: Q973 AQ82 95 KJ6
OK, makes sense, there will probably be trouble in 3NT in or if partner has 3 cards in hearts. I am curious if it is possible to find out if partner stops diamonds since I expect him to show card support first.
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: 2 9532 KQ6 T9762
I only claimed that it will help defense on average. Whether it will win in the long run depends on how often they make 3D XX and how often you will end up making the wrong decision whether to sacrifice or not. As for the void, I did not think ...
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: 2 9532 KQ6 T9762
For example, if he has 5 diamonds and some shape (say 55). He would have a cheap defense to 4S or even make 5D in case I had normal lead-directing double (with 5+ in the suit). But, he would go for a number opposite the hand that I hold here ...
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: 2 9532 KQ6 T9762
Well, I would also double with a hand that has length so partner is on a guess whether it is right to compete. Just because I might double with 3 cards does not mean I would pass with 5+ and a normal lead-directing double. Still, I agree that opponents might ...
