Spotting Chances
Yes, both partner and I undervalued the 6 and the opps just plain undervalued. Kicking myself for not re Qing hearts so we could reach 7 and avoid H lead. Interestingly , in 7 , looks like the only legitimate play is the winning one (if escape H lead).
The Bidding Box #4 (ACBL Bulletin, June 2019)
There are several factors. Another is how difficult the contract is to reach. If 3N is best contract and always scores the highest on a 1N-3N auction, then it does not deserve as high a score as say the 6 contract from the recent trials with AQJT opp Kxx ...
Psyches - and fielding them
You are a long way from 9 tricks on any lead. Time to establish spades, or diamonds, or clubs. 6 and 2 tricks are not enough. Opps can establish long spade (giving 2S), long clubs (giving 2 club tricks), or just Q (giving D, spade on opening lead) Of ...
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: T987 7 865 AKQT5
Yes, though I’m not sure we can make game ,I’m getting us to at least 4. I would note that I could construct layouts that make 4 opposite that hand.
Psyches - and fielding them
It was a paraphrasing of an OP comment upthread, I could have been more clear about that , it is certainly not a statement that i believe.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: T987 7 865 AKQT5
4 is a descriptive invite when overcaller has AKxxxx xx Axx xx.
Psyches - and fielding them
Partner bids then ; bridge logic suggests they don't have . Yes we can say the opponents have done this so they must have this, but why must we believe the opponents and not partner?
The Bidding Box #4 (ACBL Bulletin, June 2019)
That sounds like the contract I want to be in.
The Bidding Box #4 (ACBL Bulletin, June 2019)
I think the idea is to reward contestants who reach the contract "you would like to be in" seeing both hands. 25% of the time in a non-field contract requiring 1 of 2 finesses, you might get a bad result, 100% of the time you want to be in that ...
The Bidding Box #4 (ACBL Bulletin, June 2019)
Diamonds are 0% to be 2-2. For better or worse, scoring is based on the defense finding the most effective lead and with suits getting most likely splits (thus a contract requiring 3-3 break if the defense finds the killing lead is downgraded). Thus in this example: 3N is all ...
