Jim Perkins's bidding problem: AK96 Q92 T872 Q2
I worded that poorly - I do not mean to assert that my treatment is understood within constructive raises. Just noting that we err on the side of having a stop short of game bid rather than a might be more than game bid. I think the 3 response came ...
Auction after 1NT 3X
By the way, I did know that this was not part of Lebensohl (although lumping it in certainly gave you reason to wonder), but I wanted to include some suggestions on what a double over 3X could mean. Just last week I made this bid and the opponents weren't ...
Auction after 1NT 3X
What if it went 1NT 3?
Thirteen Different Cards
Right, you draw a card from the deck. There is a 48/51 chance you get a new denomination with your second card, a 44/50 chance you get a new deonmination with your third card, etc. (48x44x40x36x32x28x24x20x16x12x8x4)/(51x50x49x...x40) Take the reciprocal of this number and you get 1 ...
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: KT54 QJ932 K632 ---
I just play old fashioned NMF. Partner has denied four spades and limited his hand, so I think I am going to rebid 2 instead of passing 1NT. Sure my hand could go up in value if I find a 3-cd heart fit and working cards across from me ...
Criss -cross Inverted Raises
I don't find that 1 3 comes up a lot, and although I like playing 1 2 game forcing, it could be treated as invitational or better, with the 2 bidder "forced" to respond 3 at his next turn to show less than ...
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: AKQT32 J4 AT3 J3
Quantitative = masterminding?
Rich Newell's bidding problem: AKJ74 74 J63 876
2NT is definitely a relay to 3C preparing to land in a contract short of game. After 1D 1S 2H I figured: 2S weak and to play 2N relay to 3C, dropping partner short of game 3C 4th suit forcing 3S Forcing with six spades all other bids forcing but ...
What does 4!C mean?
I play negative doubles after 1NT 3X and 2N 3X. (No doubt some many do also after 1N 2X) There is a good chance partner will come back with 3 after which you can bid 4NT, or 3NT followed by 4 gerber. Even though I don't have ...
Help when 1 minor is doubled and passed out
I would expect XX to show extras. Seems either you or partner should figure to pull 1X before it gets passed out.
