Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AK6 --- KQJ8765 A92
No, I wouldn't like that but I'd take my chances with 5. Don't need too much from partner to bring that home.
Would you call for the director?
No one forced his partner to bid 3 if he had a dog....
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: A 74 AK96 KQ9652
I would think that 2NT was 18-19 with a spade card.
Would you call for the director?
Jeff, I am sure that you meant well, but - I can imagine also being irritated had someone asked me this question. It sure looks like a constructive raise to me, so asking the question in my mind either implies that you are challenging North's bidding judgement - OR that you ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AK6 --- KQJ8765 A92

An Absurd ACBL Procedure
David! Well. George and I generally achieve around 33% when we play together (and that's on our good days!) Too much action, so I think. And - George was fearful for bodily well being, were he to play with Claude :D Actually, it's really a matter of Claude and ...
Would you ever refuse to play a particular opponent?
My honest answer is I'm not sure what I'd do until I found myself in a position where it actually happened that I might feel "I cannot play against this person under any circumstances." I've never felt that I could not possibly do it. I suppose like ...
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: AT75 T73 AK J742
I bid 3 as much as anything else to deflect a club lead, should they get to game in hearts.
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!
For sure, Steve! I imagine David knew, considering he stated "don't mess with them"!
