Waking up to your misbid on your own, before partner's alert
It's not that I didn't believe you, but rather that I thought it would be nice to see the wording of the regulation for the interested reader. In any case, perhaps I should show this to partner who has a recurring case of hover-hand-over-bidding-box syndrome...
Waking up to your misbid on your own, before partner's alert
Thanks, Dominic. At the table, responder bid a major which ended the auction, so no there were no ethical issues and no reason to call the director. Declarer/responder did mumble "so much for that 6 card major" after the 8th or 9th trick... Of course, I kept a poker ...
Waking up to your misbid on your own, before partner's alert
Thanks, Henrik. Good to know that I haven't been violating the regulations. Although I would probably have heard from Calle R if I had. :-) I actually looked it up now. On page 15 of the Swedish NBO regulations, it is written: "Ett bud anses avgivet så snart det framtagits ...
Waking up to your misbid on your own, before partner's alert
Andy, you are exactly right. Patrick, thanks for quoting the law. But I'm not sure it applies, since the knowledge that my call will be misinterpreted was acquired BEFORE I heard my partner's explanation. The law would seem to restrict only information acquired from/after/in relation to ...
Waking up to your misbid on your own, before partner's alert
Thanks, John. You are correct. According to a private message I received, in Sweden, you are allowed to change your call until the bidding card hits the table (though you do subject partner to UI).
Rich Regan's bidding problem: AT83 QJ8 KT4 J98
Of course, you guys on the other side of the Baltic pond are, in many ways, a little more restrained. ;-)
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: AT8542 K5 J632 A
Fit jump to 3 seems reasonable. Lacking this agreement, 1.
Zelig Rubenstein's bidding problem: A7 AQ8 7 AKQ9873
I don't think there exists a hand which responds to an opening one-level bid but gives a second negative after a 2 opening.
Rich Regan's bidding problem: AT83 QJ8 KT4 J98
I would open 1 showing 10-12 balanced or any 16+ hand vulnerable.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: AJ62 Q75 AK863 J
I disagree. Assume that partner has short diamonds and a weak hand. In that case, he will often have spades. So we will often be able to avoid languishing in on a 5-1 fit opposite a yarb. That means we can afford to get into the auction more freely ...
