Jeff Fang's bidding problem: 4 AK4 AKQT874 K4
1) To facilitate slam bidding, 2) to discourage spade competition.
How forcing is 1!C - (2!H) - 3!H?
I play this to show limit-raise+ values with club support and fewer than 4 spades. Partner can bid 3NT, 4C, or 5C. I can convert his 4C bid to minorwood by bidding something other than 5C, promising at least 2d round heart control. Yes, there are failing cases in this ...
Do you adjust?
The director is not obliged to accept the table's assertion that there was a BIT. The players cannot stipulate to changing a law. For a high level pair, it's probably safe to accept their assertion, but if any player is under maybe 5000 MP, the director should do ...
Jeff Fang's bidding problem: 4 AK4 AKQT874 K4
Bidding problems are harder to read with x's in the hands. I wish bridgewinners would render these as small x. Until then, it might be better to type in a few small cards than use the AKxs style.
Was I injured
How could West have enough HCP to invite?
Jack Feagin's bidding problem: AQT96 2 KJT7 932
That's an excellent point, but I'm still opening this hand in first seat at match points.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KQ743 J85432 2 Q
This is why I like to keep 2 as a weak two bid. Better question: if the bidding goes pass, pass, do you open this hand third seat vul?
Rich Newell's bidding problem: AQJ 53 Q5 AT8753
"Some kind of 3 heart raise" is insufficient information. How is it different from 3?
Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
I didn't understand that this was a UI problem. If I think partner has misconstrued my bid as forcing, pass becomes 100%.
Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
So this opponent is going to come in over 3 but pass over 2?
