Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I think the fact that the limited hand chose to bid blackwood, not directly over the 4 cuebid, but only after partner's pass of the 4X denied a first-round control, is crucial in the analysis. As others have said, normally players at this level would not bid ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I know I'm late to the conversation, but someone just gave me this hand as a lead problem, and without the UI or the comment, I led the DK, and I think it is the clear best lead, just on the auction. Several factors make this clear, without the ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T96 AT KT54 QT64
I would probably risk the 1 opening on this, but I do that knowing that in my partnerships, partner will respond very light. How do you show this after you open 1 and partner responds with a forcing NT? That is what Gazilli is for, isn't it?
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T96 AT KT54 QT64
Playing the methods described, I would bid 4 on responder's hand, over 3. This hand has too much potential to simply bid game, but not enough to take control of the auction. If partner takes this as a suit and raises, I correct to hearts (5 or ...
Who's the Joker?
So the full story: SPOILER ALERT . . . . . . . . . .. The strong hand thought for a long time before doubling 1NT. Neither partner bothered asking whether the pass of 1NTX showed any values, or how our runouts worked. The pull to 2 was instantaneous. This hand then passed, without even considering the fact ...
Am I right or wrong here?
On a different auction, this might be a "last train" try for the grand slam, but I don't think that applies here. As a standard agreement (barring any special partnership discussions), 5NT not only asks for specific kings here (per the question), it also guarantees all the key cards ...
You be the Judge
I appreciate all the analyses so far. I do want to point out that East should know, from West's choice of discards, what declarer's shape is. West discard two diamonds on the SJ and Q, starting with the lower one (encouraging). West would not blank the DK from ...
R.I.P Marshall Miles
Earlier this week, my friend and long-time bridge partner, Marshall Miles, passed away after suffering a heart attack. As a young man, Marshall served our country in the Navy. He went on to have a successful career as a lawyer, but gained fame as a bridge expert. He won seven ...
