Avoiding lightner/penalty double hitch vs slams. "Lightner pass"
You might think that Ed, but reality is that people lose UI rulings when perhaps they should not.
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21
That is a tougher problem, since partner is allowed to psych a natural 1. Yu, note that I Q-bid the run out suit before bidding 4N... I had a similar auction playing with Sylvia... That time, she had psyched. I Q bid a couple times, then let her off ...
Avoiding lightner/penalty double hitch vs slams. "Lightner pass"
How do you prove you always ask?
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KT754 843 A96 Q7
why? Easy to imagine that you need to double 4 to protect your part score. Easy to imagine they are in a normal spot too, so I don't double. But that does not make 3 wrong.
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21
RKC is forcing unless partner psyched.
Upgrades or not?
Right!
Minorwood or Redwood?
Do I have 3 aces, or only one? Do you feel lucky?
1m-(1M)-3M: splinter OR asking opener to bid 3NT
if you like to mastermind auctions then a stopper ask is what you should play. Constructive bidders don't need to do that. They can bid their suit forcing, or Q with support. Masterminding is more effective at MPs where the gain from obfuscation can outweigh the losses from being ...
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21
You just Q-bid, then bid RKC. If partner passes 4N, you play it there. If partner responds, you bid the grand. This caters to either RHO or CHO having psyched. Note: The prohibition against psyching artificial opening bids means partner did not psych.
Assign the Blame/Credit
Having blown 3N, the odds on bidding game skyrocket. 4 makes - Lose 10. 5 goes down - Lose 13 5 makes - Lose 0-1 This is not the normal 2-1 for bidding a vulnerable game. This is closer to 4-1.
