Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
Gary (and other opening leaders) -- I don't see how that comprises an argument against rejecting pass. Bidding here is not a slam, or even a mild invitation to the 6-level. Nick is simply making a point, and quite rightly too IMO, about how dim a view he takes of ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
There have been a number of comments on here expressing the view that the opponents are very likely in a 4-3 fit, which favors pass and a trump lead. I certainly agree that if you believe that a 7-card fit their way is probable, or even a strong likelihood, that ...

You are not allowed to play "your own methods" in answering someone else's poll. If indeed it was "a mistake" to pass on the first round as you maintain, it has to be so given the methods stipulated by the OP, and thus a critic of that pass needs ...
Andreas Babsch's bidding problem: K874 75 AQ765 73
I expected the "cojones" bid of 4S to garner at least a plurality, but at these colors and under the circumstances specified by the OP, the situation is not one that clearly favors aggressive action. In any case, nine tricks might easily be our limit facing some perfectly normal (and ...
Andreas Babsch's bidding problem: K874 75 AQ765 73
choice between what and what? fine if pd thinks 4C is a choice of strains, but what if he thinks it is a choice between 4S and more spades?
