Change of Plans
Thank you another great article! I have one question related to the bidding - is it possible for the overcaller to have a 5card Major suit? If yes, does it change the decision between 3/3NT?
Juraj Kvocek's bidding problem: KJ3 KJ9 QJ6 8653
Fair enough, that would be a better term to describe it. Is it meant like 'Hey partner, I also have 13 CARDS, just wanted you to know that'? :D
Juraj Kvocek's bidding problem: KJ3 KJ9 QJ6 8653
Take out in the sense that you could almost call your system "double is take out" just like you announce "2/1 GF". There might be positions where it would make sense for double to be penalty, and there are some well-defined and frequent ones, but this is not one ...
In a Hurry
Great to see a hand where underleading two aces works! It immediately reminded me of a hand Swedish juniors defended at last year's European Youth Championship where underleading the same ace twice was the key play. Here it is, described by Simon Hult: ...
Juraj Kvocek's bidding problem: A AK9765 AQ43 T6

Save an Exit
Kit, would you consider opening 3 with this hand? As I think you probably would have written about it if you did, how stronger a hand would you need for that bid? Thank you for the article, again it was very interesting.
A Diversion
There is one more question about the lead - how do we choose from K7 and K10? It appears to me that K10 might probably give up more, but once we choose to lead actively, is that really a concern? Are there any other subtle factors from the bidding?
Eduard Velecky's bidding problem: 4 9763 KQJ852 K3
I usually don't abstain if the problem is new to me, but here I cannot put myself in this situation. X is very low on my list of alternatives, because even 1NT on the second round would promise 4M and 5+m in my understanding. Wouldn't opt for ...
Great Bols Of Fire
If you have no idea, finesse the queen with the player who gets more pissed if you succeed. (actually a real motto of one senior player from Slovakia)
