Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
Yes I did, Richard, but the usbject of the opening bid (and applying that agreement to this auction) was brought up,in the OP's first response in this thread.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
Double=takeout, like virtually all experts. 4NT is a two-suiter.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
Two or three-suited takeout is unplayable. How do you bid opposite that with 3532? 5D, to play there opposite 1444 (or worse, 1435)? Or 5H, to catch a 1156 hand opposite?
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
4NT for takeout is virtually unplayable, and is making a very unilateral decision at a very high level without knowledge of a fit.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
I can't even contemplate playing a non-takeout double,of a 4S opening.
Gonzalo Guridi's bidding problem: KTxxx 98x --- KJTxx
Why are we in an auction in which I can never bid my second suit? .
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK2 64 AK2 KT942
Double would be penalty oriented? Which century did I wake up in?
If you play professionally
Yes, what I find about postmen is that they developed their expertise in the field after years of delivering mail for free to hone their skills. It's all about the passion. Whereas bridge professionals only ever took up the game for the steady paycheck.
Off the rails again
So, what's going to go wrong? Partner drives to slam expecting a source of tricks in diamonds, and ends up in a slam with a source of tricks in clubs instead?
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: KQ9754 --- A97 KJ62
Definitely not pass. If partner doesn't want to play for penalties, I don't want to be in 3NT.
