Ray Yuenger's bidding problem: K T96 Q73 JT9765
I would have bid 2 instead of my 2nd Pass. Then 3 would be even more obvious now.
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
I don't think the issue is whether or not partner can cope with 2. However, do we give up on the idea of penalizing the opps just because we happen to have a 4-crd or do we want to give partner the opportunity to express a 4-crd ...
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: K763 3 9652 T643
Also, isn't playing something like this partly precisely to be able to stop a level lower than most others? Of course i understand you could try and find your gains in the extra space for exploration, but just avoiding the (extra) undertrick must be worth something in itself :)
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: A65 J62 KT942 T8
Why were we not told :) ?
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
Yes, of course responder takes whatever action she thinks is best in the knowledge that opener has 4-crd . So with 0-1 's she will most likely bid on as she would have done if the opps had been silent and opener had bid 2 over the Stayman.
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
Thanks Martin, but i still don't understand. Are you saying double promises 4 without any regards as to number of 's, so opener could be 4=2=4=3 just as easily as 4=4=3=2? I wouldn't consider that a great gain. If responder ...
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
Not sure i understand: 1NT-p-2-2 // p (with 4=4=3=2)-p-dbl (4-1-5-3) and now how is opener going to decide whether to pass or bid? and what if responder was 3=2-4-4? Would he still double and now we play in our 4-3 fit instead of doubling ...
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
I agree, but doubling with and passing without them seems to accomplish everything also. Basically we've answered partner's question about Majors: do you have one or both: yes, i have 's, the rest will follow later if you are interested :).
Follow-ups when opponents bids a major over a stayman bid
Other: X = 4's; Pass is not 4's, could still have 4's If we pass, p can still double (or pass if she had a Garbage Stayman hand) with 4's or bid something else with 4's. Why deprive ourselves of the ...
Table feel vs Cheating
Is falsecarding somewhat similar to psyching? Only horrible people do those things!
