The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
What me bothers is the hypothetical question: HOW did they do it? (if they did it) The book from Avon (nonavailable in europe as far as I know) summarizes only the conclusion, that LHO knows more about the RHO hand than the opponents. If you think about the 'how' you ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Maybe Avarelli opened 1H out of turn? (just a thought, I found the atricle convincing at all...)
Roland Voigt's lead problem: K6 K6542 KT5 754
I would appreciate the lead system here :)
Nikolas Bausback's bidding problem: AK9 AQT874 --- KQJ6
I don´t like the double here. Would prefer 2 instead
Responder Shows responses to strong 2!C - symmetric style
But only if the opps stay silent (which they rarely do)
Richard Bley's bidding problem: J532 KJ52 76 AK7
I would think minors. A direct 2NT would have been natural
Richard Bley's bidding problem: J532 KJ52 76 AK7
I already posted partner´s hand (of course :))
Nikolas Bausback's bidding problem: AKJ9 --- Q876 AQJT8
would probably bid 1s if opp is nv
Niko Roemer's bidding problem: A96543 87 AT962 ---
4 was what I actually did (vs a polish club opener, similar to the system here)
Could we have done more?
That is very funny... I opened 1NT as well the bidding went: 1NT 2 (1s im MAJ) X 2 (p/C) I passed, Partner bid 3. Now I decided to bid 3NT anyway. After a lead partner was furious (at least in his way)
