Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: T82 T7 AQT9 K874
I like the 3C as strong raise, the issue is does it promises another bid. Usually when you cuebid, parter normally expects the auction to not stop on a dime. I can't imagine partner having only 5-4, this promises at least 5-5. With 5-4 you double or pass depending ...
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: T82 T7 AQT9 K874
I would bid 3d at the table without discussion, but I would wonder what 2S means. It seems like 2S as the strongest diamond raise would be the best interpretation. I guess it conceivable that it is a weak 6 card suit unable to bid earlier. But that is questionable ...
What hand type is 2!d?
Even playing equal level conversion there is no reason to pull 1N with a minimum. So 2D has to be forcing 1 round.
Rule of 2 and 3
That's the fundamental question. Is there a criteria for determining if a preempt is the percentage action. Obviously the old rules don't apply in today's bridge.
Defending a 3NT Opening
I doubt the utility of trying to find a minor fit with 2 suiters. Finding the optimum major fit seems more useful. My suggestion is to use 4c as majors with better or equal hearts (could be 5-5,5-6, or 4-6, and 4D as same with longer spades. It also ...
Redouble after a Major Suit Raise
I agree with this as a method, but I sure appears to be the minority vote. Is there a technical basis for this being a more offensive bid over a more defensive hand?
Redouble after a Major Suit Raise
This is my first attempt at an OP, so sorry for the confusion. I was mostly looking for what is the best interpretation, rather that what is standard.
Death Distribution
Kit, what is the response if 3 suited, and partner bids 2N?
Allan Simon's bidding problem: Q743 KT5 K KJ974
I agree that this 12HCP isn't as good as it looks. However, its a bit much to treat it like a 6 point hand, and only bid 3c. Some partners like to bid their values and yours, but this will convince them to do it more. You need to ...
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: KJ652 --- T8 AKT976
If that is your style to overcall 2H with strongish hands, then if partner bids 3H and then 4H he must have the worlds fair. I don't see the problem. In fact, if you bid 3N direct, with the hand you are concerned about he would bid 4H over ...
