Nigel Kearney's bidding problem: --- AKQJ3 A8 QT8765
If partner had first round diamond control, he would have bid 6, which is clearly a raise to 6 with the diamond control. He didn't do that, so he doesn't have that. I don't believe that partner would bid a slam, even if he were ...
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: A6 A9 K92 KQJT75
If you play that 4 would be nonforcing on this sequence, as we do, then South can't risk it. I'd suggest, however, that my 4NT bid--natural and invitational to slam--must logically imply long clubs. Any balanced hand that would want to suggest slam now would have bid ...
Memories of Margie
About 20 years ago, Margie came to our table in the Blue Ribbon Pairs with a tall, thin young man. When I saw her later, I said something like, "Margie, who was that cute young man you played with in the Blues?" Margie responded, in a shocked tone of voice ...
Really bad or not
Usually, I abstain on these problems to protest the editorial comments associated with the poll options. Obviously, that isn't working, so I voted for the first option. My actual opinion is that I wouldn't do it because I think it's more likely to lose than it is ...
FP situation? If not who should bid 5?
It's useful to have straightforward rules about forcing auctions. Ours are: (1) If we have voluntarily bid a game, clearly intending to make it, both partner's passes are forcing if the opponents sacrifice. (2) If our sequence has shown that we have substantially more than half the high ...
Daryl Fisher's bidding problem: 3 AK75 --- T9865432
It's impossible to answer the question without knowing what methods we are playing. In my methods, I can transfer to clubs and then bid hearts naturally, so that's what I'd do. Partner can show his interest in clubs by accepting or rejecting a try. In either case ...
FP situation? If not who should bid 5?
Steve, he also already knows you have clubs, as you'd see if you clicked on the highlighted 2 bid.
Would you open 1NT with a void?
Once, when I was kibitzing, Kit opened 1NT with 0256. (He thought he was 3253.) It didn't work for him, either.
Craig Satersmoen's bidding problem: AT97 AKQT765 --- 54
This hand is basically impossible. The problem with 4 is that it doesn't hint at slam potential. The problem with 4 is that you can easily be able to make a slam in spades but not in hearts. The problem with 4 is that partner will ...
Two Discards and In What Order?
It's not clear to me that partner could offer any meaningful help at tricks 3 and 4--he doesn't have any high cards. I'd like to know if he holds the 10, but he won't signal for that. Any order of plays should get partner to do ...
