Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: K765 A65 A764 52
While I chose 3, I don't think double is horrible.
Rich Newell's bidding problem: 653 AQT6 32 AK32
I think this auction highlights the problem with using the jump to 2 as 4sf. Partner has preempted us when we need the extra room to investigate.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: QJ6 J64 AQ8 J864
This hand worse than most 10 counts.
Tom Allan's bidding problem: AKQ9542 KJ43 A 6
Would have over called 1
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: QJ9 AKT95 T87 AT
Why wouldn't he raise immediately with that?
Alan Frank's bidding problem: AQ873 83 AJ AQ42
It is only the lack of intermediates that dissuades me from bidding 6NT.
Putting it to You
The ACBL Alert Procedures pamphlet says to alert if your bid has a meaning the opponents may not expect. It gives specific example of 1 -4 where the 4 bid may not be preemptive as requiring an alert. It also says " When in doubt, ALERT. "
Putting it to You
I think Richard made valid point.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AK3 AKT5 AJ973 4
I don't think I would have splintered. If I did, I would now pass.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AKJ KT4 94 KQJ87
I voted for 1, but I can understand 1NT at Matchpoints.
