Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Jacoby 2NT?
Maybe Ax xxxxx xx AQxx over 4th seat 1? I actually play it as inv+ normally so in that context I would here too, but I think there's some value in being able to say no seriously my hand is worth a GF now so pard doesn't ...
Jacoby 2NT?
Still Jacoby and still game forcing
Assess the blame (11)
South absolutely should have trusted his partner and bid 6 (or 6NT) since he held a heart control and his partner basically demanded he bid a slam with a heart control. However, if South held say xx AKQx KQJx KQJ wouldn't the same logic apply and get you ...
Marko KučAn's bidding problem: AQ42 KQ8 A974 Q8
Even if you wouldn't do this normally (I'm not sure that I would), wouldn't you consider a preempt on this type of hand down 50 with 16 boards to go against a strong team? You never know how many reasonable opportunities you're going to get to ...
Marko KučAn's bidding problem: AQ42 KQ8 A974 Q8
I really don't understand everyone's visceral reaction to this auction (call me new-fashioned?). Partner has a very weak but offensive hand where he thought the highest EV action was to preempt in 1st seat, despite the colors. When you bid 3NT partner judged that you rated to get ...
Franck Guerrero's bidding problem: AJ6 AKQ75 Q72 A4
Setting aside the issue of whether or not this is strong enough to bid directly (I think it's close), it seems like this hand should make a responsive X, planning to correct 4 to 4 to show flexibility.
Improving the Seeding Process
I've always liked this idea, though I've never seen it implemented. I think it's particularly good for fields like this where you can see the top N reasonably well based on past performance, but the existence of teams without a past history makes the seeding a bit ...
When is shuffle/deal/play appropriate?
I am pretty much the worst amateur magician in the world. In fact the only thing I can do reliably is to shuffle a deck of cards casually while talking and keep a single card on the top or bottom of the deck. I make sure to always cut after ...
Interesting Discard Situation
Right, not with 3 spades in dummy
Interesting Discard Situation
Well certainly first example was a bad one. 2nd one I was thinking 4162 but 4252 works as well. Your point about the hearts is well-taken, I missed that particular holding for declarer (I assume you meant Kxxx spades for declarer). I was thinking that pitching the T could cost ...
