Phil Markey's bidding problem: A963 AK63 85 JT2
Philip I don't think you understand my point at all, which is fine.
Phil Markey's bidding problem: A963 AK63 85 JT2
Despite the poll results, I don't think its such an obvious pass. Partners expected point count is probably around 10ish if he has say 50% share of the outstanding points. That combined with a singleton or doubleton club will probably play somewhere between well and very well opposite your ...
Alexander Cook's bidding problem: 876432 T952 4 64
Pass, hoping it doesn't go 2 more passes
Eric Leong's bidding problem: Q976 QJ86 9 AJ43
I think it depends on the style of the 2D overcall.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: QT43 3 AJT7 8432
Ive changed my answer to pass, but I think its pretty difficult to calculate these sort of BAM decisions. The main issue with doubling is - we are assuming our team mates are getting a negative score. If our team mates are getting a positive score, doubling is only a bad ...
Taking Advantage of UI?
west is being strikingly inconsistent. He is saying that his bid is 2 places to play, but then forcing a heart contract. He obviously has changed his mind and something has compelled him to do the weird bid of 5H. Also why not 5D? - if 4NT was consistent with 2 ...
Restricted choice?
Yea what you're saying definitely has its merits. I'm just not sure if worrying about diamond texture should come into it at that stage, because in several other ways 1NT does a lot of good for your side. Also partner could have a whole range of diamond holdings ...
Restricted choice?
I think this isn't a case of just working out "what is the probability of a (443)2". Because, divide the chance of a 4432 by 6, to get a (443)QJ. However, being fairly sure that east doesn't have 5 diamonds probably makes a big difference, as ...
Upside upside down
I think the 8 is clearly correct but even if it wasn't, it is often too impractical and exhausting to figure out obscure carding exceptions and will probably be at the cost of some tempo which is a big concession. Lately, when the correct card to play (due to ...
Play 1NT
Okay. Its probably far fetched to draw too much out of tempo on such a hand, also because the guys at your table are conscious of tempo and will not give away too much. I guess my point is that if it was in simple tempo, LHO might be more ...
