Jumps in comp
I play as invitational, but your "no doubt" does not work for me. It would be reasonable to play the bids as forcing and just overbid. Invites are narrow targets, and sometimes Q-bidding to force does not get the message across.
John Torrey's bidding problem: AKQ4 A5 A87 AQ65
They double on KQJx all the time. I am hoping partner has a few diamonds and can redouble.
Usual Kokish sequemce
Well, I am betting lesser competence based on the evidence given. I don't think you are right to assume a top seed in a flight A regional. a non-seed perhaps. Normand, what event, what quality player?
Usual Kokish sequemce
The question was not "should there be an adjustment" It was, "Was 6N using UI?" When you make a bid that would not have been made but for the UI, that is using UI. Do you really think that if 2H had been alerted as Kokish, and then partner bid ...
What is needed to freebid after takeout?
Yu, you have 3 HCP, and with 6 card support for a suit your partner promised, you can upgrade your singleton to 3 points. That get's even the most die hard point counters up to 6. But you need to lose this notion in competitive auctions and bid your ...
Usual Kokish sequemce
I disagree. Since we were told that 4N was RKC for hearts, the call must not be impossible for these guys. A real auction from Wednesday: 1H P 1S P 2D P 2S P 3D P 4N P 5H P 5S all pass They made 7. These players always respond ...
A few 2/1=FG style questions
Read a lot of responses before I found one I agree with.
How would you rule?
You can probably look across the field and see how many tricks declarer actually took in NT. Surely others got there. As for moron on defense... People really are that bad. Couple days ago I was winning trick 12 in dummy and my RHO pitched the winner in the suit ...
A New Ethics?
Sometimes we confuse "Sporting" with good sportsmanship. It's good sportsmanship to call the director. It's sporting to make your own ruling favorable to the opponents.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: KQ73 AT7 7 AKJ65
I usually have at least 6. Usually.
