Highest Opening Bid You've Ever Made or Witnessed?
Was dealt AKQJTx AKQxxxx in first seat at local club MP game about 10 years ago. Not sure if any sensible way to bid this. Opened 7 because solid suit and figured no opponent would ever retain Jxxx on that auction. Bidding went 7, (7), 7NT, (P ...
Evaluate this hand
A defining feature of a limit raise is that it has exactly 8 losers. Although this hand is 9 loser, an upgrade from constructive to limit is my choice because of the quality AJTxx suit. Bergen hand evaluation method puts this hand at 12 dummy points. The xxx does ...
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 rpbridge.net 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 ...
