Opening 1NT with a Singleton
Ah 1NT openers ... the bane of many bridge players' existences. You have discussed opening 1NT with 'normal distributions', including 2362 or 2326 (since it would take a very sick individual to even think of opening 1NT with a six-card major, unless their priority is to play in no-trump ahead of ...
IMPs - To Bid Or To Pass
Reopening with a double on spec... is this common practice - even with three diamonds or not? For if it is not common practice, I will always have to pull the opps out of the fire...instead of my partner. Your thoughts? J
IMPs - To Bid Or To Pass
Ugh. You pessimists - this all hinges on opener reopening with a double on spec. Your comments? J
A Hand Like No Other
I mean, you are not losing any diamonds cards, and his long diamonds with the 2D freebid must promise entries to dummy to finesse spades ... unless you are a pessimist and fear that LHO holds exactly AQx - given that his 2C overcall was alerted as denying a four-card major?
A Hand Like No Other
Peg: Did your partner not raise to 2D voluntarily over LHO's 2C overcall? If so, he must have values, and you might have a game somewhere - I assume 3D would have then been preemptive?
IMPs - To Bid Or To Pass
Gavin - really? The chance of a nine-nine card fit would mean that partner is void in diamonds and would surely take another bid - you give partner that option as well - can you really see this being played in 1D not doubled? Bidding 2D with only four clubs - not five? I ...
A Hand Like No Other
You have 13 cards in 2 suits - pray tell you want to try to play in one of them - you owe it to the partnership to take another bid.
A Hand Like No Other
What's the issue? Open 1D and then rebid your spades. Why keep the boss suit hidden if you feel the contract belongs to you?
IMPs - To Bid Or To Pass
I decided to pass, and here is my reasoning: 1. I did not have both four card majors to double. 2. I had a ton of diamond defence. 3. I knew (or really hoped) that my partner would reopen with a double.
Should I respond 2 Clubs or 1 Spade?
Upgrade??? You have a 15 count KQ83 Q43 A8 A843. Why shift your focus to a minor when responding 1S is 1100% forcing? Don't try to be a genius, just bid your hand. Come on Daniel - try just playing bridge. J
