Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
pass fail
Agree with David. Change the hands ever so slightly and you'd have a flood of people on here talking about how easily they'd reach 4S. The choices are all close, and I also agree that always presuming N necessarily has his/her bid (especially given the poor quality ...
A Calculable Matchpoint Bidding Decision
If we were contemplating spades as a strain, why not start with 2 and involve pard in the decision a bit? Surely partner's rebid will rule out some of the simulated scenarios. We could also potentially use whatever system we have for 2N to find some useful info ...
Convention Analysis
One important piece of information to consider for a given convention is how it influences the rest of your system. It is extremely difficult to quantify the value of taking a certain hand type and putting it into a convention so that the bid that previously held that hand type ...
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
I will admit that PRC bothered me for some time because it didn't make sense to consider a stiff honor holding that was impossible after the 1st round of play (e.g. stiff J when the Q drops). As someone who knows some Bayesian statistics, the explanation that I ...
Best percentage play
What if West's shortness is a spade void?
Interesting suit combination
2 immediately over 2 is indeed a double negative in our agreements. Along with this agreement, we did agree that 2N directly over 2 shows a positive with hearts. In the post mortem, partner agreed this was his best choice but had some concern that it might ...
Interesting suit combination
So let me just say that I fully acknowledge that the given auction is not a good one. We both made choices that worked out poorly on this hand in terms of the final contract. That said, I was by no means happy opening 2 on this hand. I ...
Interesting suit combination
We don't have any artificial method for 2 over a forcing NT. Perhaps that is something we should work on, but that was the main reason I chose 2 rather than 1. We don't actually have any way to show this hand really. Faking a ...
Interesting suit combination
Thanks Kit. My thoughts were converging to this as well. At the table this is exactly what happened. I ran the 10, and N holding Q95 ducked. After the duck, repeating the finesse seemed obvious, and the contract came home. I couldn't actually place the full line of logic ...
Interesting suit combination
If we run the 10, how often does Hxx cover? N doesn't know pard has an honor and might be worried about guessing the suit for me when I hold 7 trumps missing one honor (from the auction that would imply a side suit A with pard from N ...
