Assess the credit. What is the best bid?
Best bid? I see two terrible bids that canceled out. The first was opening 2C on that powerful hand and not upgrading to 1C. Since, in my opinion, that north hand is impossible, south had no business bidding 7C without the CJ in addition, or a 4th club.... Am I ...
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
it has re-appeared! Whew, it took me a long time to type it :)
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
I posted a long comment here, and it somehow disappeared.....
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Generally, the theoretical underpinning for punishment involves a number of considerations. I think most systems of punishment take all of the following into account (or at least most), even if different people, different settings, and different offenses might entail different weights to these objectives/values: 1. Just Desert – Someone is ...
Mark Leonard's bidding problem: x KQTxxxx Axx QT
Well, I also bid 5H.... I thought 4H was just too whimpy when ak 6th of clubs and AX of hearts makes a decent slam
Penalty or responsive?
I really think that anything other than penalty is silly here. A. The same hand bid 1H and 2H, so there is no guarantee they have a fit B. If you had 4 Spades, just bid them. It’s at the 2 level, while a minor is at the 3 ...
You Suspect a Psyche
Why does it matter if your opponent psyched. That does not change the strength of yours or your partner’s hands. Your partner has 5-8 with 4+ H, and you have a balanced 20 with a good fit. Suppose partner has QJ 5th of hearts and an ace (a max ...
Multi 2!d Continuations
Obviously that is slightly superior, but I play the exact same methods over x’s of all artificial bids in non Forcing auctions :all bids remain the same as without the x (including pass =to play) and XX asks for step 1 so I can sign off in my suit ...
Multi 2!d Continuations
I just copied that from one set of notes. I actually in most partnerships play something different over 2D-x: Pass is to play Xx is bid 2H and I will next bid my suit. With really great spades you can ignore me and bid 2S instead. Otherwise, systems on. Also ...
Multi 2!d Continuations
Over 2D weak 2 in either major: Version 1: Pass Either D’s or Potential Psych NV 2H Pass or correct. Could have decent hand for spades, 2h then 3h over 2s is invitational with 6+ hearts 2S Ss ( 2N Ogust, 3C to play, 3D INV Diamonds, 3h=INV hearts ...
