Choice of Spot Card
Yes, it seems wrong. But the alternatives are worse. Suppose you alert the pass, and it turns out your partner couldn't stomach opening 2 with xxxxx xxxx Qx Jx and chose to pass this time. And declarer misplays the hand since he "knows" your partner can't have ...
A Simple One
1NT denies a 4-card spade suit which I choose to show.
Choice of Spot Card
Nick, A truly excellent discussion of the problem, which touched upon all the major issues and explained them thoroughly.
What card should you play?
With a different dummy, I might agree with you. But let's be realistic. Dummy has AQxxxx of clubs. One extra spade trick for declarer isn't going to make or break the contract. If declarer has AK10x of spades and there is a killing red-suit shift, there is no ...
5 card stayman - assess this structure
At a glance I see a couple of clear inefficiencies: You have 1NT-2;2-3m = 5m, 4/ This is very inefficient. You are now at the 3-level, and you still don't know whether or not you have a 4-4 major-suit fit. Surely it is better to ...
What card should you play?
Declarer probably has 6 club tricks, and the ace of spades makes 7. Partner will need to have the ace of diamonds for you to have a chance. He also needs something in hearts. The most likely relevant holding is when partner has the ace of diamonds and the king ...
Choice of Spot Card
Ed, What you say sounds nice in theory. In practice, there are several problems. 1) The concept of the convention card came about many years ago when a convention like Jacoby transfer was a novelty. At that time pairs played relatively few conventions and had few agreements, so what they ...
World Series format
Until this year, I have played in every Olympiad pairs and Rosenblum teams since 1974. When we won in 1986, the final match was 128 boards. The pairs format has been different over different years, but I'm pretty sure I remember playing with 4 qualifying sessions, 4 semi-final sessions ...
Choice of Spot Card
Do you mean to say that (without screens) when the opponents open a short club and so alert it that one of us should immediately step in and volunteer what our defense is? I can just imagine the opponents and directors reaction to that. I can accept that with screens ...
Choice of Spot Card
Exactly the same way we bid after (1NT)-DBL where double shows a 4-card major and a longer minor. 2 is pass or correct, 2 asks for the major, and 2 of a major is to play.
