Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is that how one should tackle this?
Wait, I am not allowed to ask for specifics?!! But I have and many others have done that! How is it illegal to ask what 1N-4C-4N-6H, 4C is? Do you just say: Can you describe the bidding? then hope for the best and that they cover the 4C bid?
Is that how one should tackle this?
Why is asking 4Hs bad?
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- AKJ93 KQ93 KQJ3
Kyle, I think it is a good idea to differentiate between >If you prefer to signoff after 3♥, abstain 7♦. If you prefer to start with 2♣, abstain 7♦.
Arthur Zhou's bidding problem: AT94 A876 KJ987 ---
This is an easy one! As Michael Rosenberg says: Voids create swings. I don't know for sure, but I think he would still double even with less points...
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AKQ432 Q42 Q42 5
Shoot, I didn't see my 6 spades... I would bid 2S, promising 6- Bergen style
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: JT73 --- 62 KQT9865
Harrison, isn't 3H forcing cuz we play 3C as invite?
Arthur Zhou's bidding problem: AK752 KQ9632 A A
Can people who voted for 1S explain why they did so? Isn't that bid too weak for your hand? Why not double then bid spades?
Board 1 from the 02/06/2018 Common Game
Maybe they play Spirals? I don't know if that would stop them though...
Michael Seamon Junior USBC (Part 2)
On Board 5, should NS be in slam? How should the bidding have gone? Is it just unlucky they were off two aces? On Board 12, what did the 4N by South show? What did the 6C by N show?
The Midplay
Guys, sorry, I forgot to say E stripped diamonds. ._.
