Barry Dehlin's lead problem: A975432 7 86 732
Barry, When we played this board, South opened 1H and West (hand shown above) also did not bid spades. After 2D by North, East (with long diamonds) bid 3D. Strange vul and 2D promised 5+. His partner had no clue. Doubled, it would have gone for 800 but they probably ...
Draft ACBL Novice Chart - Request for Comments
Max - excellent comment. It is too bad that many administrators refer to players with fewer masterpoints as novices, babies, guppies, etc. It is rude and demeaning. Many are serious advancing players and are far from novices. It is also unfortunate that we think we need all of these charts. They ...
Mike Giesler's bidding problem: JT7543 92 AQT95 ---
Here is the follow-up. This was a serious but very friendly team game. At the table, South elected to pass over 1 thinking that since he did not have a two-suit overcall available, he would be able to come in later. The bidding proceeded: 1 (Pass) 2 ...
Art Korth's bidding problem: K4 9 KT72 AKQJ93
What is the better format - what you played or RR to eliminate one team then four teams play KO the next day?
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: Ax Qxx AKxxx Q9x
3 - transfer Lebensohl. Invitational or better. Shows your suit now in case advancer leaps to 4.
Raising on three
Marshall Miles has a very good discussion of three-card raises in his book"Modern Constructive Bidding." (pg. 70) We have used his guidelines for sometime and have had very good experience. Probably make three-card raises about 60% of the time. MM discusses several related ideas but basically he says raise ...
Quick Misbid Poll Question
Great comment and poll. Convention Disruption has to be answered with utility theory. It is no fun playing against a pair that either forgets their conventions or has not discussed their agreements and just guess (not talking about novices). I like good scores but would prefer no Convention Disruption no ...
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: T9 AK76432 J Q98
Greg, I passed this out at the club thinking I could never out bid spades (as did several others) but with a do-over I would bid 2.
Mike Giesler's bidding problem: KT964 AJ7 AQ9 52
Ken, You are right. Here is the whole hand (sorry, could not get the hand editor to work in a comment): - - - - - - AQ532 - - - - - - Q5 - - - - - - K2 - - - - - - A986 J8 - - - - - - - - - 7 9643 - - - - - - - K1082 J8543 - - - - - - 1076 73 - - - - - - - - - KQJ104 - - - - - - K10964 - - - - - - AJ7 - - - - - - AQ9 - - - - - - 52 The club frequencies were (above average strength): 4+2: 7 6 ...
It might be too easy?
Hi Greg, I was the one that declared this hand in 4HX-1. For some reason, "East" did not open their 13 HCP count. I opened 2C which LHO doubled. The double was explained as "high cards" so I thought I had a sure thing leading to the SQ. I never ...
