Bridge World and Barclays have both put orders, so shouldnt be so far away.
Questions about bridge terms
Yes that is true, when talking about "any" bid. Another question by the way. Is there a term for the "pair" that makes the defensive bidding. Defenders relate only to the play. What do we call the side that intervenes?
Questions about bridge terms
That sounds logical too. Maybe something even better will pop up. If we look at it only from the advancer's point of view the situation is either a) RHO passed b) RHO bids or doubles. (RHO is the responder - openers partner). It is the overcall that has been contested ...
Questions about bridge terms
Brian, is not an overcall the accepted term for the bid of the "intruder"? I think it is, and then I think it should be natural to name the person "overcaller".
Questions about bridge terms
I agree. Both openings and responses are weaker today. When the bidding starts 1X-P-1Y our side can have as much as 25-26 HCP nowadays, since responses to the weaker openings also are often made with 3-5 HCP.
Questions about bridge terms
Yes, so far it is my absolute favorite!
Questions about bridge terms
Are life vests included?
Questions about bridge terms
I also think we have something that can be called pre-competitive :)
Questions about bridge terms
I agree with you, I didn't get so far as to the higher levels when I discovered I needed some education :) What seems obvious to me is that, when both opponents bid, it is a live auction if RHO makes a forcing bid.
