Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AQ6 QT7 K8 AQ753
This is right on the line. I think by pure evaluation it's worth an upgrade, but with 3-3 in the majors 1NT is much more attractive since we'll be playing 5-3 major suit fits from my side and in either 2 or 4.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AQT9765 AK AKQ5 ---
Agree, I think our spade suit is about what partner should expect for 5. I feel like if our opinion is that spades are trump no matter what we shouldn't be introducing diamonds. There just isn't enough room in these auctions to sort out "my spades are ...
FS sentencing from IBF
The sentences for most of the pairs convicted of cheating have included lifetime bans from playing with the partner at the time of the cheating. Shouldn't these bans also include partnering anyone who has ever been convicted of collusive cheating? Would anyone feel good about, say, Fisher-Nunes partnering together ...
Delay the Decision
Kit, I was surprised at your conclusion WRT the T1 decision here. While I agree that ducking the sA is good practice in principle, it seems wrong to me here. Can't partner have, say, QT8x Kxxx Qx xxx? We need to get the hA out of the way immediately ...
Asymmetry in Matchpoint Scoring
Anyone who answers this poll without doing some sort of calculation based on a large number of results is VASTLY overestimating their own ability to accurately detect patterns in data.
4!H/6!D Across from 2N Opener
We have been playing this for years and it seems clearly better than other agreements after a natural 4m. You can also use it over Puppet auctions after a 1NT opener: 1NT 2NT (puppet) 3 (no 5M) 4m (5m, optional keycard) 1NT 2NT 3 3 (4 ...
How Many Hands of Bridge So Far?
I held my (I think) 4th 9-bagger on Saturday night. AKJ9xxxx - QT xx. Sadly, I was teaching mini bridge where the highest HCP hand gets to be declarer, hear dummy's shape and pick the contract. Defending 2 was not a success...
Effect of the Recent ACBL Rules about opening 1NT with a singleton
A point that I don't think has been made yet: this rule, despite its faults, is still a VAST improvement on what it used to be. So let's at least recognize that. Before we were all in this position with hands where today's experts would nearly universally ...
Would Obvious Shift have helped ?
Not sure if it is standard or not, but we've always played OS is off on AK leads. I would want to be playing it here off here - no real reason declarer can't have 4531 shape and we need to get our two spades, ruff and our cK ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AJ976 A9 A96 A72
I think it's clear to bid 4NT if it's keycard but I wouldn't risk it if partner might misinterpret.
