All the aces
My point to David is that club to Ace at trick 5 forces you to take a guess at a line - do I ruff 2 spades (then can't handle 5-0 or 4-1 diamonds (transportation)) or hope for doubleton CQ and 1 spade ruff. Club hook clarifies the situation immediately ...
All the aces
David - And if clubs are 1-4 and diamonds split?
All the aces
Same as Frances except hook the club on trick 5. More winning scenarios (but will lose immediately if 4-1 club split and LHO returns club).
Moysian Fit Declarer Play
Depends on form of scoring. IMPS - ruff club, duck round of diamonds, playing for 2 diamond losers and 1 heart loser. MP - ruff club, spade to K, ruff club, HK, SA, SJ (overruff as necessary). If over-ruff pull 2 rounds trump, go to dummy with DA and dump diamond on ...
2NT after jump advance of T/O double
The double and 2 bids are straightforward. Doubler must pass 2. The whole point of the double in the first place is that doubler can tolerate all the other suits. 2N shows a hand stronger than a direct 1N overcall.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: KQ Q765 Q53 AK32
In my partnership partner's double shows four hearts, since our double does not guarantee four. Obvious 4 bid now.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AJ963 KQ2 84 KJT
You opened 1. Within the constraints of this choice, I would pass 1N unless 2N can show this specific shape and size. 2 is an option but it misrepresents everything about your hand.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: T953 642 A52 KQJ
Double. No shape for a trump contract. Lead a heart and lead them again.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: QJ84 KJT73 7 972
You have both majors and 7HCP. What's the hurry? LHO will open a minor or NT, and you can show your hand more accurately in a competitive auction.
Favourite Novelty Conventions
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 ...
