Bidding Plan?
Can easily sign off in 4NT if missing 2 aces.
Decoding South's bidding (Part 2) - Something went really wrong...
Looking at the N-S hands, it appears that: North thought it was proper to always bid 2 with both majors. Hence the 3 wasn't a 4-card suit. It was concentration. With a singleton club, North bid 3 suggesting the possibility of playing in a 4-3 spade ...
Bidding Plan?
Leaping to 6 definitely isn't the right auction (leaping to slam seldom is). Jess's Gerber approach is certainly better. It would be silly to get to slam off 2 aces with this hand. Still, driving to slam unless off 2 aces looks a bit optimistic. I would ...
Decoding South's bidding (Part 1)
Playing with screens makes it even easier since you don't have to worry about potential UI from your questions, although that shouldn't matter anyway. If you aren't satisfied with "natural", and you shouldn't be, then write down more specific questions. One obvious question which comes to ...
What minor suits are forcing after second round 2NT?
If one of the suits is a major, the mainstream for ABA is forcing. With both minors, that isn't so clear. You say it is forcing is "Standard". But the poll appears to be an indication that this is not the case. I don't play it forcing in ...
Is It Too Close To Call?
I have every reason to think the contract will be 4 at the other table looking at this hand. Assuming that your give distribution frequency is an accurate assessment of what will happen at the other table (which I don't believe), then it is clear to pass and ...
Decoding South's bidding (Part 1)
It isn't our job to decode their auction. We ask what is going on before we make our opening lead, and they tell us.
How do you proceed?
What is the partnership agreement about the double of 1?
Opening 1!h with 5-5 majors, playing Precision
It seems to me pretty routine to pass a 2 rebid with 3 hearts and 2 spades. Why do you think the 5-2 fit figures to take a trick more than the 4-3 fit? It is usually close, but I would bet on the 4-3 heart fit. Note that ...
Hand from Oz
Clearly I am short a hand entry for a potential black-suit squeeze on West. Even if I take an immediate club finesse and exit with a diamond, all the defense has to do is not return a diamond and I will have to use the third round of trumps for ...
