Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
1, 1;1NT shows opener 54. 1, 1;1NT shows opener 54.
Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
Yes those 54 non reversing hands are hard. Would open 1 when playing transfer responses to 1. Often possible to identify fit in either minor before reaching 2-level.
Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
"1♦-1♥; 3♠ with 14+5 doesn‘t sound like winning bridge to me." The situation may not be as bad as thinking about 14+5 only in general terms. Data found on gives % of contracts making when 8-card and 9-card fit. Data for 14+5 was not ...
Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
Agree. Strong gambling type hand is important & should be 1,1M; 3NT. What I had written in OP for 3NT can be covered by auction 1,1M;Splinter
Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
Loss of natural auction 1,1;1 should not be a concern. Rarely buy contract at 1. Easy to get to 2 by auction 1,1;1NT,2. Opener rebid 1NT promises 4-card . If auction were 1,1;1NT ...
1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
I changed my vote to No alert. When you announce opponents 1NT = 10-12 the re-bid 1NT = 13-15 should not be unexpected.
Best defence to a possibly-short 1C?
I use a universal defense to Opponents 1. It works well against any System. Also often improves our bidding accuracy against standard systems because frequently 1 is not a oriented hand. I have been playing this defense for over 3 years. (1) , Double : 12+ at ...
Defence to Weak 2NT opener (minors)?
Our 2NT opening artificial bid can be either Weak to Average Strength 8-13 hcp or Very Strong 21+ hcp game forcing always showing both minors. This bid is expected to occur about 0.48% of all dealt hands. The weak hand occurs for over 98% of the 2NT Openers. Our ...
Five card diamond.
I voted minimum 4-card (occurs when 4441). About 82% of the time our 1 is 5-card. We include 5332 only when 10-12. 1 is always unbalanced when 13+. 5-card works very in competition; confidently bidding to 3 with 3-card support to kick 8-card fit ...
How to play 1 minor 1 heart 1 spade?
Very good to see that your system separates balanced from unbalanced early in the auction. IMHO there is not enough emphasis on this very important concept built into many modern bidding systems. My DCS structure is based on this same objective.
