Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: --- AK AQJ96 AJT543
I have heard -- or maybe I dreamed it once -- that optimal bidding strategy at rubber bridge is not necessarily 100% identical to winning approaches at MPs. It's probably just a crazy rumor though.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: K64 J97542 KQ4 4
Lynn -- I believe that all Richard meant to imply was that he found your exceedingly laconic remark difficult to decipher, and to a point where he expected that most other people would as well. In my own case I confess that Richard was correct. While he might have expressed himself ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AQT9874 --- 6432 53
As the Bard of Avon so pithily observed: "Brevity is the soul of what?"
Liam Milne's bidding problem: K64 J97542 KQ4 4
Honestly, under the stated conditions a response of 2H to me is so clear-cut that I can't help but suspect the main reason why the vote is split almost evenly between 2H and "Other" is that people just cannot get past (and perhaps understandably so) the antediluvian unfamiliarity of ...

Have you ever seen Sabine's pre-empts ? Some literary recommendations are based on what the authors think their readers' partners can live with, and not upon their own winning practices. In some cases -- am not saying this applies to Sabine, of course -- it may even be based on what they ...

CZ: In my partnerships, an opening 3S shows five hearts and an undisclosed six-card minor. But since the annotations provided by the OP clearly state "NORMAL PRE-EMPTS", I collegially chose to vote and comment based on that provision. As an aside, it is a good thing to make people happy ...

He might have spade help, but "expect" seems like an overbid. What is he supposed to bid with: x KQT KQJ9 AKQxx ?
Liam Milne's bidding problem: K64 J97542 KQ4 4
In a general way these methods make me wince, but a gig is a gig. More importantly, all methods, like all dogs, have their day, and when fortunate enough to be playing a bad method on the very day that its rare-as-hen's-teeth chickens do come home to roost, we ...
