ATB - doubled partial score making
What a bunch of total wimps voting on this problem. I see this problem all the time. You look at your bad 4 count and you forget that your side has half the deck and you don't let them play a fit unmolested at the 2 level when the ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT76 3 72 AKJ853
Fits the category of two psyches make a right?
It took 45 years but eventually....
I filled in the first round for a late player. My very nervous partner responded 2 to my double. She did make 6 though for +170 the hard way. She probably thought she was bidding 2/1 game force. Mercifully her partner showed up shortly afterwards. I wondered if ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT76 3 72 AKJ853
Leo, I think you won this board by opening, and the rest of the randomness just made for a fun play hand when they found a silly lead. I don't see why he would double 2 but not 1N. He has the same hand.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT76 3 72 AKJ853
You have to show me the heart spots then. Only if West can't hold the lead on the 1st heart can 8 tricks be possible on a high heart lead.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT76 3 72 AKJ853
What happens on a 2nd highest heart spot lead through the AQx? Seems to me like NT will have 7 tricks and no more. You need to give the dummy the 9 of hearts for it's x to avoid a top heart scuttling your 2N.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Do we know which teammate?
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT76 3 72 AKJ853
Leo, Random actions work some of the time. But they are still random actions. Seems to me that 2 would get your partner to raise to 3, and you would steal the pot there, having won the board by opening. You needed a wrong opening lead to score ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: Q43 QT62 AJ62 A5
My double of 1 would be penalties, but BW is full of people that don't like their numbers.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: Q43 QT62 AJ62 A5
More likely it means that responder is 3352, Opener is 4315, and I have them for getting too cute. Also, I don't want a different set of agreements based on which minor they open.
