Gavin Wolpert's bidding problem: AKQJ9 Q43 85 T92
There's another thing I like about 3--it's invitational, but not forcing. Sure, I like my hand. But after we get past my five spade tricks, I have very little to offer partner. And we're going to need our tricks pretty quick in NT, because if the ...
The Cherokee warned us about Spearfinger
I don't understand the first double. Was South afraid that he needed to double to indicate an unusual defense, or otherwise your partner might make 4? I also don't understand North's 4. Was he afraid his partner was counting on him to have three Aces ...
Jacoby 2NT?
Michael, perhaps you're telling the opponents that fact, and perhaps it has some value to them, but I think it's VERY important to let your partner know about your extra trump(s) so he can participate in the competitive decision(s).
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
Henry, you didn't mention one other thing that bidding boxes fixed: "Would you please review the auction?" In a complicated slam auction that took five or six rounds, the reviews for the opening leader, including the arguments about which cue bid had occurred first, sometimes took longer than the ...
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
We use bidding boxes in our social games at our house. With four to eight tables in play, I can't imagine what it would be like to have bidding going on all around. Jim Murphy was one of the best players in the Virginia Beach area when he lived ...
USBF Junior Celebrity Guest Night: Jeff Meckstroth
@David: My comment about the title was tongue-in-cheek, as indicated by my smiley face at the end. Nevertheless, if you struggled, you should have asked me first. ;-) I'd have given you the same words (plus one very short one) in a different order. Celebrity Guest Night: Jeff Meckstroth at ...
What is your plan?
I'm taking the namby-pamby pass-the-buck route. I transfer and raise to three. Let partner take the heat. ;-) Seriously, I transfer and raise because I'm worried about a diamond ruff (or two). If partner doesn't have the heart Ace, he may be open to at least one diamond ...
Is that alertable?
Ed, it's quite possible I'm mistaken in my recollection, so I won't be offended if you correct me... My impression is that we don't alert the things that didn't happen but if/when asked, our obligation of full disclosure is to explain the implications of ...
Does East's pass of 6S show interest in a grand slam?
I'm looking at the vulnerability and asking myself HUH??? Red vs white he comes back in for twelve tricks? Does he know whose hand this is? Do I know? Does either of us know how many tricks either side can take?
Is that alertable?
Flannery "as it was written?" My goodness, are we stuck in a time locker? The good players I know who choose to play Flannery do so with a complete structure of responses and rebids. They're not all the same, but they're all a lot more complex than "as ...
