Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
I use multi vs multi 2 Diamonds defense (https://www.chrisryall.net/bridge/multi-v-multi-2d.htm). It works great and is worth the price of admission just to see the expression on the opponents face when we pull out our 3 page defense. One opponent said, "well I don't know ...
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
The director wasn't interested and didn't even look at the East hand. I wanted the director to ask East what he thought when he bid 2C. Sometimes people inadvertently admit the truth, such as "anchor suit" by West.
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
I agree in retrospect that I probably should have bid 3H at my second turn to bid, but I don't agree with South asking about the 2C bid at his first turn as I would have sensed that something was up. Also I think the same would be true ...
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
East is the mentee and the card was checked Michaels-min-maj?? I think East got confused about "anchor suit" and deliberately chose to bid 2C with this hand.
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
Good comments. I think either East was confused or deliberately decided to bid 2C, knowing that if West bid hearts they could bid Spades and show longer Spades. Begs the question of what "anchor suit". East claimed the 2C bid was a mistake???
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
This what I think East understood from the mentor, maybe mistakenly. But they have played together many times and it is hard to see how this mistake could have been made and that it is the first time this has happenened. That is why I wanted the director to explore ...
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
Ed would you elaborate. I was stopped cold by the director and new enough not to argue further.
Michaels for the Majors Maybe???
I don't understand your comment. There was no issue of break in tempo.
Failure to Alert
That is exactly what I thought. North was happy with his 5 Diamonds J10XXX plus the King of Clubs.
Failure to Alert
John, thanks for your contributions. I am interested in your thoughts on why 1S less likely with the alert.
