Gavin Wolpert's bidding problem: AKQJ9 Q43 85 T92
I actually do play both versions with some partners Dave...and you are right: 1-1-2-2 works well as nf also...
Gavin Wolpert's bidding problem: AKQJ9 Q43 85 T92
I prefer to play 1m-2H=5+S-4+H, 6-10-ish to handle these awkward nf hands and play this sequence is (at least) forcing 1 round ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: J94 KJ J9 AKJ732
I'd be afraid to have an unfortunate accident if I cue bid 4 (partner thinks I'm making a delayed raise with a doubleton and passes). 4NT is straightforward enough and will almost surely get us all the info we need to know.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
I'm a little worried that partner might misinterpret 5 (as well as thinking I don't have the A). Surely on this auction 5 is a cue bid. If partner bids 5, I'll take my chances at 7.
Jeff Miller's bidding problem: 6 AKQJT9 765 543
I'll take the insurance against 4 making...I'm worried I have too many if that's mostly partner's hand...5 for me (probably down 1).
Looking for Strong Club systems
You mentioned Toad Club (which I was the co-creator of, as I was "The Toad"). I have an entirely new set of notes on the system I can email anyone who might be interested. Ken Schutze (the other co-creator). We won the NAPs several times playing this system.
Looking for Strong Club systems
I have all 5 of the old Danielson Relay Precision books (I thought it was planned there would be 8 but I never saw any after the first 5).
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
"Shocked! Shocked I am to find out that gambling is going on at UNC"! "Your midcourt tickets,sir..,and how much will we be betting on Saturday's game?"
Jim Griffin's bidding problem: AT85 9865 73 AQ6
Partner had: Q9x -- AKQx K9xxxx and 6 turned out to be the winner (if you managed to get there). I secretly like the Bluhmer approach best, but that was not a bid that would have been understood at the table :-).
Jim Griffin's bidding problem: KQJ4 9863 --- KQJ95
Perhaps :-)
