2C-2D-2S-3NT (opponents silent)
I had one occasional partner who played this 3N as 1=4=4=4 (obviously 4=1=4=4 over a 2 rebid) with a spread out 7-10 hcp.
Agree with Peg. To offer partner a choice between 7 and 7NT, responder could, over opener's 3 bid 5NT. After opener chooses between 6 and 6NT, responder simply raises to 7. 5NT should not be Grand Slam Force (even if you play GSF). That should be ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
My problem with working hard to "read" the opponents is that it so easily morphs into the Crawford Stare. For those not familiar with the name, John Crawford was a great U.S. bridge player (and one of the greatest Backgammon players) who mostly quit bridge in the early 1960s ...
Does This Landy Variant Have a Name?
Bill: Simply inverting 2 and 2. The idea being that advancer can bid 2 to ask overcaller for their longer/better major.
World Championship VuGraph Schedule
Google might be planning to take over the world. In the meantime, it is a rather useful source. Let's say you live in Budapest and want to convert 1100 China time into Budapest time:. Type the following into a google search box: 1100 China time is what in Budapest ...
2!c With an Unbalanced Hand
Buddy: If the suit is a major, you are ONE trick away from game in your own hand (assuming even splits). If the suit is a minor, you are TWO tricks short of game.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: Q6 KQ762 AJ9862 ---
It would help to know our methods and weak-two style. Assuming I have never met North before and was filling in after North's partner was called away, I bid 4.
Benny Abramov's bidding problem: 97 QJ952 J93 KT2
9+ losers. A club lead from partner might (or might not) be better than a heart lead. A 1 overcall actually gives the opponents MORE bidding space than a pass would.
Bruce Schwaidelson's bidding problem: T6 74 JT AKQJ965
Agree with Richard. I guess after accidentally bidding 3 last time, I know jump to 5. As to the 1 opener: Eddie Kantar wrote that Marshall Miles told him that with a solid 6-card minor pass and with seven you open at the one level. Like Kantar ...
Does This Landy Variant Have a Name?
I've heard it called Randy. However, I have also heard a different Landy variation called Randy.
