Selena Pepić's bidding problem: QJxx AQT98x AQx ---
(1) Partner may not be a favorite to have the diamond king but that is far from a remote possibility. His sequence is compatible with plenty of hands containing that card. (2) Given that 3C was non-forcing, I for one am having a bit of difficulty constructing hands where we ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: QJxx AQT98x AQx ---
For me this problem (as stated) boils down to what a bid of 4D by me now will/should be understood to mean. Is it Last-Train-to-4H, or is it a control-bid for the club suit which has now been established as trump by partner's wilful dismissal of 3N as ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: QJxx AQT98x AQx ---
not going to disagree with that, but how does it answer my question? maybe I am missing something
Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
My translation: Pass gambles that we are playing Matchpoints
Alex Hydes's bidding problem: 2 KT852 AJT8652 ---
I wouldn't exactly describe Double here as "suggesting a save" -- rather, it says you don't want to defend their game undoubled and have a suitable hand in context (i.e. having passed as dealer) for whatever decision partner makes. That includes, apart from a sacrifice, punishing 4SX and ...
Alex Hydes's bidding problem: 2 KT852 AJT8652 ---
I would certainly have opened, but failing to do so is OK with me as long as the otherwise-ostensibly-oxymoronic sequence of passing but then suddenly acting at the four-level, and against a power auction, will be understood by partner as necessarily showing a special hand-type like this. That allows me ...
Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
In my world, there are still game tries even when the opponents bid. Here they are at favorable colours to boot. But it is nice to know for future reference, i.e. when I play against all those who make an opening lead here, that your vulnerable raises of opener ...
Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
Pass? As in the mantra "6/5, full fathom five"?
Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
Perhaps so. Perhaps unrepentantly.
Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
I see no reason to "forget about partner having four hearts" -- he is not bound to raise hearts just because he has four of them, since the bidding is not over. The key point is that there is no distinction in this auction between a merely competitive heart raise by ...
