Opening pass out of turn when pard is the first to bid
I don't claim any knowledge of the laws. That said it seems to me they must be allowed to respond to their partner's opening bid. Otherwise why not just bar them for one round as we did under the old laws? Of course the auction now has the ...
Board 22 from the 03/23/2019 Common Game
6 is actually cold. N/S lead spades which is as good as anything. Declarer draws trump and plays ace, king and a third heart discarding the spade loser. The fourth heart is good for a club pitch. Declarer takes 6 diamonds 3 hearts and 3 black winners.

Well done, congrats
Jon Green's bidding problem: Q862 T3 A9765 94
Monty In the case where 2 shows clubs your method would work well on this hand. It could miss a spade contract when opener has 4 but maybe that's alright. That said I'm hesitant to give up transfers since we want opener to be declarer. That's ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: Q862 T3 A9765 94
I think continuing to play transfers is probably okay and desirable. But, as Martin says, double for takeout caters to most hands. Double as Stayman s very risky. On this hand I'd like to double and bid 2 if partner bids 2. That should be a 4 ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: Q862 T3 A9765 94
My reason for posting this is that the methodology we use here is poor. On this hand we can be fairly sure that defending 2 undoubled is not our best possible position. Yet currently 88% pass and it's likely 2 is where they'll end up. Playing ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: A7652 AT8754 J6 ---
From my POV the problem with opening was that it might become awkward to show my distribution without showing extra values. I'd have opened with 6-5. By passing first I might be able to show a major two-suiter of this strength.

I don't see how I can stop below game when it has a decent play opposite Qxxxx xxxx xxx x.
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
It would be Soloway style, not 13+/
You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
It makes it easier on partner if he can count on some values from the 1NT bidder. 5 to 10 or 11 HCP is a hard range to cope with. Too often he'll invite for fear of missing game and then go down in 2NT. I prefer about 7-11 ...
