Kevin Wilson's bidding problem: QT K9763 AT6 962
That is a good and fair point and one I didn't even consider. The event was the championship flight of the GNT and the competition was very experienced.
Kevin Wilson's bidding problem: QT K9763 AT6 962
I don't think a cursory Law of Total Tricks analysis is enough to compete at the highest levels in bridge. Consider partner's shape... If partner has 1 spade and five hearts (LOTT = 20) then partner has seven cards in the minor suits. How are they divided? 15(52 ...
Board 15 from the 01/24/2017 Common Game
It is easy to respond when you're given a direct question. I think East should have bid 4. East is easily strong enough for 4. I think the East hand is worth more than just a 4 bid, but given that stretching for a minor suit ...
Board 1 from the 01/10/2017 Common Game
2 is Stayman... very similar to the way you play it except in my example North-South plays four-suit transfers (1NT p 2 transfers to clubs and 1NT p 2NT transfers to diamonds). Since this North-South couldn't bid 2NT directly over 1NT, they must bid Stayman when they ...
Board 8 from the 01/03/2017 Common Game
If you're going to bid 5, I think you should bid it directly over 3. Bidding 4 and then 5 gives them two opportunities to get it right. I'm 100% opposed to bidding 4and then 5. I think bidding 4 and ...
Board 19 from the 12/20/2016 Common Game
Is the contract you are thinking about 4? North wins the A and switches to a club. If North plays a second spade, declarer wins, comes to hand with the A draws the last trump and then plays K, J. The 9 establishes for a club discard. Declarer ducks ...
Board 22 from the 12/20/2016 Common Game
If partner always understands 4 as showing something close to this hand, it is a fine bid.
Board 9 from the 12/13/2016 Common Game
After 1 p 1 p 2 East-West know that a 4-4 spade fit has been found. At that point in the auction, the final contract is going to be in spades. The rest of the bidding will determine how high the auction will go or at what ...
ACBL Junior Memberships: What do you think of new policy?
Hi Debbie, I just received an email from ACBL to do a survey about using the Bulletin online. It showed me a preview of 12 pages and asked about my interactions with them. I think input on how to make the best internet version is clearly time well spent. I ...
Board 22 from the 10/18/2016 Common Game
Whether or not it shows spades and a minor after a 2 Stayman bid would be strictly by partnership agreement. Overcalling with a two-suited hand is usually a little less risky than overcalling with a single-suited hand but I would typically assume single-suited unless alerted. I would take East ...
