Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J865 AK432 863 Q
So - if partner had something like a 12-15 (or more?) 3-1-5-4 hand he really is stuck for a bid immediately? When he doubles NOW, do we have a sense of what he is showing? Is it something like what I describe above? Or could it have more strength - or less ...
Ron Smith's bidding problem: AT5 AKQT7 KQT5 A
So you are driving to game, David? (I play that 3 here guarantees hearts and is GF....) You are surely correct that you don't need much from partner to make game. Yet if partner has the wrong tiny something, game won't make. People are posting tough problems ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
You are right, Ron. But partner will never correct to spades with 4 and Jx or Qx of spades. And partner doesn't know that you have an excellent 6-4 with very good spades, either. Not being critical of your choice! Part of why I think this is a ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
Toughie. I can see bidding 2, 3 and my choice - 3. I just hope I guessed right!
Bidding philosophy
Marshall, we are each entitled to our own views. My experience iss that when I overcall, I either have a good suit or a decent hand with some values - or both. While any action can have a good or poor outcome based upon the layout of all 4 hands, I ...
Bidding philosophy
The bid I hate is 1S. I can hear partner now as we get doubled in a hopeless game and they only have a partscore: “You have no suit; you have no values.” Partner is correct...
Bidding philosophy
T, partner is not a passed hand. You are in second seat.
Assess the Regional Swiss blame
But it was a Swiss - so - 5 surely would have been better than a part score.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AT4 J9852 54 J84
So the hand above is the follow up to the auction I posted a day prior: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-v5wwpn0cun/ Far more passed on the 1st post than took a call. So - perhaps I truly did the wrong thing. But - I thought that I had enough cards (especially ...
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: K84 AQT6 K7 AK85
At first I thought that he couldn't possibly be wanting to bid on after his 3NT call. Yet he surely could have hands (as Brian shows above) where IF we have a fit he's interested - but if not - not. So - answering to 1430.
