Jim Perkins's bidding problem: 63 A975 Q9 AKQ85
Jim - does system bar you from opening 2 with this? Or - did you think that 1 followed by 1NT over 1 (assuming no interference) was superior?
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: AJ864 AQ8643 T A
Well; it kind of matters where one's values are what actions I would take ... but - In this particular case, I surely would think that opener has some extra values for the reverse. (At least - again - I play this way in my partnerships.) So, 3NT for me would be "no ...
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: AJ864 AQ8643 T A
Steve - fine to play it this way in your partnerships. But would not mean this at all in mine! 3NT = I heard your bids; this is where I want to play. If responder has extras, we try to go slower and learn more about the hand.
Negotiated Settlement
Ed, we'd need people to craft two sets of rules. It would not be easy; it would take time to get it all accomplished. Yet, I think it would be a goal worth pursuing. Once done, those who played in clubs with the "relaxed" rules would realize that it ...
Negotiated Settlement
I have a different solution - that I truly think would appeal to far more people. Different rules for club games versus tournaments - unless a club prefers to abide by tournament rules. Why torture thousands of players who enjoying playing more social bridge, because a far smaller percentage of us wish ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: JT9 T7 QT43 J752
I'm afraid I don't know what 2 shows, strengthwise - so hard to know how to vote.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AKQJT --- A9862 AQ7
Marty, an intriguing concept. Part of it I love. For the other part, though, I'm afraid that some hands might take forever to complete! And - I can imagine hours of litigation and argument regarding this, too. Frankly, I wish we could return to the days of committees, where a ...
Do you care?
Matt - agree 100% that gloating is gross. And, I really do try hard to not make a big deal out of something that we did well at the table. We can say something to one another later; not at the table. Being successful at the bridge table ought not include ...
Delayed support or cuebid?
I just don't see it as a serious loss, Steve. So in the posted auction, if we do not have spade support but a spade card, surely we have something else, too. We can bid 4 or 4 - and - if we have a big hand and partner ...
Delayed support or cuebid?
Steve, if you show your spade support prior to showing a heart suit, then how do you know that you're not playing in a middling spade fit (Qxx opposite Kxxxx, let's say) versus KJxxx opposite AQxx in hearts? How is anyone to figure out that heart bids after ...
