about me

obsessed with ethics, the today's fashion of unethical play has caused me many times to stop playing

my most beloved pair in the world: Meckwell

Sedat DINC's lead problem: QT6 JT2 K653 Q96
Thanks for fixing it, changed to J.
Sedat DINC's lead problem: QT6 JT2 K653 Q96
How can I change a bidding that doesn't exist?
Nikos Stamatiou's lead problem: 86 JT73 KJ872 T6
I'm not sure where you saw blasting, S searched for a fit in two suits before bidding 6NT.
Precision 1D Followups
Irrespective of the actual problem, I love your format idea!
Hank Meyer's bidding problem: T97543 AQ6 --- KQ65
For me 4 would show a minimum, without any kind of control in both unbid suits, and I have a control in both. I cannot answer with your methods, because I would never accept to play something so random.
Ogust Followup (with your cards!)
2NT is a psyche against yourself. 4 was obvious.
BBO Declare Only Hand
It would be at least unexpected for W to have passed over 4 with an 8 card suit.
Mark Smith's bidding problem: T764 AKQT3 87 92
I must admit that I prefer to actually have something when I overcall at the 2 level vulnerable, so I would never do that with this lot. Nevertheless, I must also admit that it might work well if partner is on lead and would not lead my good suit otherwise ...
Rate this two-notrump bid
Bad is too good a word for what 2NT is.
Distribs. for 1NT with stiff A/K/Q
Yes to both, but I often find a good reason to open in a suit, probably in almost all cases.
