I've played a 10-14 HCP notrump denying 4M (except 4M333 is allowed) for years very effectively in MP. 2C (GI) is used as a range ask with 2D showing 10-12. All other responses show game accepts: 2M = M doubleton (32 majors, with 2N asking if interested for longer or ...

This thread is very interesting, especially Eric's analysis of Kieran's described system. I'm experimenting with a system (for pairs only, which I call 'Ebony Club') that has some similar attributes but approaches the spade suit differently - the logic being that a decent hand with spades can be ...
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: J KQ9763 J AKQ73
This is all about West. IMO an immediate 5 bid would imply weakness and to push for an early 'final decision' between P and X by NS. The delayed raise is to make, expecting to only lose two round suit tricks. I would make the same 6 bid ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: JT732 Q86 AQ J52
Not enough trump to support a pass out of 2X.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: JT732 Q86 AQ J52
I plan on not selling out to 2 if they languish there. The only benefit derived from a 2 bid now is that it might alter their super-accept auction, but the downside of being doubled by a strong North outweighs this. Pass - let partner have a bid, see ...
Interesting hand
(P) 1N (2) X; (3) 4 (4)? AP
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: KJ75 AQ6 K632 AK
I agree - most would pass - that's my point. Let's change the hand to Axxx xx AQx xxxx. Would you still only raise to 3N? How about AQxx xx Axx xxxx? If not - then give me a hand with which you would make a slam try, but not open ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: KJ75 AQ6 K632 AK
You have 20pts, AK bare is over-rated. Would your partner pass Axxx xxx AQx xxx in 2nd seat? He/she might get excited with something like this, and you need two of: spade finesse, heart finesse, diamonds breaking to make the slam. So asking for KC is dangerous as well ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: QJ862 95 T872 A7
Since I don't play 2/1 or SA (I play a strong club), in the context of our very limited opening strength (max 14), this specific auction is not 'strong', but simply looking for a better MP landing spot. Again I use the example of the 44 club fit ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: J873 J92 K73 QJ2
Shows the power of not using total tricks when raising a preempt - it complicates the decision for the opps on whether to compete. I almost always raise 2M to 3M with Hx, and NV with xx. Same thing for playing 4cM and raising on three...
