about me

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

Ed Reppert's bidding problem: T9743 AJ9765 87 ---
I cannot evaluate it. With the wrong hand we go down in 2. With the right hand we make 7. Meanwhile, if we actually have a good play for game (implying we have a fit), the others may come in with their minor fit and be annoying, so ...
Ray Yuenger's bidding problem: A J8732 8642 972
Though I bid 3, it does depend on how you play this 2: can it be 5-4, or even 4-4?, how light (=peanuts) can it be, especially at favourable and MP? I generally play a sound-bidding-style, and if I were vulnerable I would probably bid 4, but ...
József Szikszai's bidding problem: 876542 --- KT3 AKQ5
There are too many hearts missing. I'll make a wild guess who has them.
Robert Schachter's lead problem: A73 KT K7632 763
I know Ben, but what happens is that I can because I made a comment, the others will not.
Robert Schachter's lead problem: A73 KT K7632 763
There is a problem in the auction, that's why I, as well as other people too, voted for the K. This first happened a few days ago at another poll.So, we cannot see the pass after 2.
Brian Davies's bidding problem: QJ K987 KQJ KT52
1NT at MP(obvious, too). Not at imps, this is too bad a hand for 1NT.
ATB: Missed game
Do you really think his K of has improved in value?
Robin Barker's bidding problem: A98542 K76 84 J3
4 does not exist.
What to do
Certainly, that's why I mentioned it Peg. For me, a bid that takes away 3 levels of bidding, better be very well defined. With any other reason to bid game I can splinter or bid my suit at the 4 level.
Forcing Pass or not?
You are a passed hand. Partner has opened something weaker than 2NT, not to mention at 3d seat. Why on earth anyone would ever think that any pass by you is forcing?
