It took 45 years but eventually....
I’ve had this maneuver successfully performed against me in a club game. I’ve not managed it but partner did, in the Vanderbilt no less. Pinning stiff Q was necessary for the set to boot.
Play 6H
Tx also gives us an additional chance.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: Q73 6 K7643 QJ94
Is 2 GF? (Inverted doesn’t mean GF) If not, why have 2 bids for good raise. Indeed 1 is usually enough here anyway with NV opps silent. 3 mixed 2 inv+ would be much better IMO.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 75 AJ5 965 AQ976
Bidding 2 on “every” hand has the drawback of not showing why we bid 2. Other bids do take up room initially but at least describe something in particular. Not being able to show AQxxx in a slam forcing hand is a big drawback.
Defensive signalling problem
I do not cash A, partner knows I have it (or at least good clubs since I opened) and if I wanted a ruff in I would cash A first (partner should know I don’t have stiff ace) . I don’t so I return 7.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: T97 82 AQJ843 87
If minors were reversed and partner opened 1, I would consider 1 but that and 1N are unnecessary distortions here.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: T97 82 AQJ843 87
The JS element of the WJS is present in a 2 call but our hand lacks the W component.
How to play trumps?
Could also be from KQx, tempting declarer into playing A on the 1st round expecting them to finesse otherwise. Your play works there as well of course.
European Bridge Clubs
Thanks to all who were able to provide information, contacts, suggestions etc. I hear a lot of positive feedback from folks who have traveled abroad with regard to the bridge scene and hope Sue/I will be able to participate. We are trying to develop a rudimentary grasp of German ...
Takeout or Penalty
Unless partner didn't look at their hand until now it's PENALTY.
