Eric Sieg's bidding problem: KT9 AJT8763 96 K
I think our opinion of LHO matters a lot here. Clearly we should pass if there's even a reasonable chance LHO is stepping out, went temporarily insane, or maybe just is aggressive or in a bad mood. But c'mon the dude just bid 3 1) in a ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: --- J932 Q97632 J65
I'm with Chris, I don't see how this is a breach of discipline at all if partner has the right hand. Is he/she really supposed to sit there and pass holding, say, AQ Axx KTxx Kxxx? This hand is happy to play 4m if you have either ...
Was thought process wrong
Passing 3NT seems totally crazy to me. You could go down in 3NT with 6 making, and if 3NT is making then 4NT is almost certainly making. Strongly agree with those who have said this hand shouldn't have bid hearts, although at matchpoints I think you should check ...
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: --- Qxxxxx AKT J9xx
Actually what's funny is normally it annoys me when someone posts a problem and someone says "I play bid X as this hand". I only mentioned it here because I feel 3NT as a splinter should be the standard meaning, and it did not seem like anyone brought that ...
Your Plan?
1. This hand is closer to a 2NT opener than a 1NT opener in value 2. I don't think bidding 3 over stayman is a thing 3. It's not clear that my rebid would be the same no matter what partner bids. Over 1, I might ...
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: AQ32 AQ52 AQT7 Q
I would have thought it was standard that LHO's pass of 2HX shows hearts so 3 is just a general force.
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: --- Qxxxxx AKT J9xx
A 3NT bid in this auction really ought to be this hand. 3NT over a minor suit rebid is a hand that improved into a GF because partner has length there. Since you'd always raise hearts with that hand, it seems like 3N is not needed as a natural ...
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: AQ32 AQ52 AQT7 Q
If 3 shows values I would bid 3 not 3N.
Mike Gill's bidding problem: AKTx x Jx QJTxxx
I also passed like the majority, but I thought it was a very close decision. Today partner held Qxx Ax AKQxxx Kx so slam was very good and bid at the other table after a 1 opening from West.
Mike Gill's bidding problem: AQxx Axxx xx Qxx
Thanks for the responses. At the table, partner broke tempo before 3. I thought this was a clear GF at red IMPs so I bid game anyway. Opponents thought this hand was nothing beyond a LR and called the director, but didn't pursue the issue when 4 ...
