Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: J852 83 K5 QJ975
I tried 3N. k onside and I do pretty well. Offside and I will be glad to have found a contract they can't double easily.
Orhan Topal's bidding problem: 87543 A75 7 A963
We can make game opposite cheese and favorable breaks. Kxxx x xxxx Kxxx Ax of spades onside and I lose 1 spade, 1 diamond, 1 club. Axxx x xxx Kxxxx is odds on for game and might take 11 tricks. Some hands with more points that don't mesh as ...
When Computers Deal Like We Used To
The same holds for an AK. You have to pick one of them though.
When Computers Deal Like We Used To
West's lead is fine. trick 3 suit pref for hearts does not ask partner to shift to spades. What the heck was East thinking? West might to better to shift to a heart a trick 2, but the timing problem to get all the uppercuts not easy to see ...
Elinescu and Wladow win their case against the WBF
Hmm. So I would have thought the WBF ban only applied to WBF events. I would have thought it a somewhat redundant ban because the WBF can already exclude members from it's events without specifying cause. I would have thought the NBOs each make their own decision, and that ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: 862 AT632 62 AKJ
No. That's the purpose of playing non-forcing NTs. If it's your habit to pass all balanced minimums, you are playing a non-forcing NT and misleading your opponents when you call it semi-forcing. Semi-forcing is so that you can pass hands like: QJx Qxxxx KJx Kx (for those that ...
How do you play the spades?
With no bidding, Ace then low to Queen seems right. And you should play the Q even if RHO produces the Jack or Ten on the 2nd round (a form of restricted choice).
Elinescu and Wladow win their case against the WBF
Henk, can you show us the WBF rules that say this? I have seen this claim repeated many times, but the link provided in this thread for the WBF rules has provisions for the WBF barring individuals. I would think the judges must have had other cause than this, or ...
How do you play the spades?
The intra-finesse is not as good as playing for the king onside if it might be. It is better than playing for Kx offsides though, especially with the preempt.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: QJ52 --- QJT9652 K3
I show this as an invitational hand in diamonds. Playing 2/1 that means jumping to 3 Diamonds. Otherwise it's bidding 2 then 3. 1N followed by 3 over 2 is weak, not invitational. I am too good for that.
