Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How would you bid these hands?
6 by responder is best - it has an additional chance when are 4-3 and a non-club lead (setting up the 5th ). How to get there is a different matter. Yuan and Michael are close. First, you need an artificial start, like Yuan or Michael did. Then you ...
MVP
Nice article. Just wondering why we don't officially select an MVP for Trials, Spingold, or Bermuda Bowl, etc., as in Super Bowl or NBA Finals?
Spot Cards
Great hands and analysis, Steve. Just a few comments. For Hand #2, if West is long in diamonds, it is not necessary for declarer to discard a spade (italicized in the text) in dummy. He can pitch a diamond on K, and play three rounds of diamonds later to endplay ...
Can we bid 6NT...?
Agreed. The easiest way is perhaps for West to jump rebid 4 at his second turn, assuming that the initial strong jump shift is not available. If you use 4 to be aces asking (ie Minorwood), that is even better. You can reach 6 or 7 ...

The last swing hand from the round of 8, Monaco vs Assael
Sorry, I do not agree that " most do not reopen with the minimum hand you describe." What if responder has a trap pass? I would think that whenever opener is short in opponent's suit, it is mandatory for him to reopen. That is why one of the commentators thought ...

Not quite following you...
The last swing hand from the round of 8, Monaco vs Assael
"What if South had a normal minimum 3=5=2=3 hand, such as ♠Qxx ♥KQxxx ♦xx ♣KQx? than the bid would be 1 heart 1 spade 1NT 2 dia opponents maybe 2 spades and so on" You probably did not read my question right. I was asking what if ...
The last swing hand from the round of 8, Monaco vs Assael
I was there on BBO watching this hand as well. I found it interesting that Piekarek-Smirnov reached this good 4 when there was a 2 call and that Helness-Helgemo did not when there was no interference at their table. How could this happen? Isn't constructive bidding (i ...
