Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is the standard for the meaning of this Auction?
Double by responder, after an initial pass, doesn't signify anything. Responder either didn't have a more descriptive call available at the time or they chose to conceal it. The double now retains the same meaning as if the auction had gone 1NT-(2)(natural). The rest of ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
For me, it would be natural. I don't subscribe to either side having denied clubs in choosing their continuation. West might have done so holding 1-6-1-5 shape and East 1-1-7-4. Clubs could still be the best and only fit available.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
I think this auction is more than just "if at all reasonable". When we have 4, 4NT, and 5 available in the search for a diamond slam, using 4 as an additional force seems excessive for what it gains vs what it gives up. Sound auctions prioritize ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
You are inferring that because we didn't confirm our 8 card heart fit early, we can't hold a doubleton in searching for the "right" strain without it being slammish. I was giving an example of why that needn't be the case. How or where this auction would ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
It's hogwash to state that we'd leap to 4 with any doubleton or that doing anything other than jumping from 2 to 4 is "aiming to slam. Period."
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
"With a 8c fit they bid 4 if not aiming to slam. Period." Hogwash.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
I don't agree with any of these inferences. "Partner can't have a control with fit he would have bid 3 and have continued 4 over 3nt ( as 3 is interpreted at first as showing stopper aiming to 3NT)." Bidding 3 and ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
Yeah, I'm still left wondering why that is.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
Gonzalo, if 2140 is in our sights then I suggest making a bid that isn't an offer to play. At what point did this auction go from trying to find a suitable game to some sort of slam sequence? 2 = 6+ hearts 3 = Rebiddable diamonds. Keeping ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 76 J5 AKQ9632 KJ
Diamonds were not set as trumps. Diamonds were raised to show support. We should certainly be able to suggest a 10 trick contract instead of an 11 trick one in a suit previously bid by partner. I'd feel extremely silly that we couldn't play a 4 contract ...
