Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I don't get it, where is problem? Why would you bid 5 knowing partner has 0-7 HCP?
After a Quantitative 4NT Raise
I have to admit, i didn't respond to original question but rather gave advice on convention. Which is kinda wrong. My preferred methods (long long time ago) were: 5 = Ace ask 5x = natural, searching fit (5NT = ) *If i remember them correctly
After a Quantitative 4NT Raise
I am referring to any kind of bidding where you use 4NT as invite, you have enough space before that to find out that you cant't have unknown fits.
After a Quantitative 4NT Raise
Don't play Quantitative 4NT if fits are possible, this must be solved before, therefore, just respond aces with max.
Missed game after Drury
And occasionally go 3 down in 3
Personal angel is not necessary
small :)
ATB .. partner opened 3S, what spade support is needed to bid 3NT?
Deleted, misread article ;)
Board 4 In The Wroclaw Quarterfinals
I have seen this hand before, wasn't there an article where computer made 6 after lead, by overtaking Q with Ace, to Q, to 9 and than squeezing west in trumps? Or mayby i had a dream about it.... nevermind than :)
What would emerge?
Transfers and polarized (2way or probably 3way) bids would be the way to go
How Would You Rule
Did it take 3-4 min to do so?
