Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Help with Precision Club please
If you locate a copy of the 1973 Terrence Reese book, Precision Bidding and Precision Play, you'll find a simple presentation of an essentially natural Precision Club style. Way back then Reese intuited a need to introduce a 4-card major suit after a 1C-pass-1D-pass start if we held a ...
Mixed BAM precision auction - What is the worst bid?
Your Precision methods may not allow this, but in our Precision methods a double of the one heart call would show a GF hand with NT interest, but lacks a heart stop. We'd forego the immediate 2 club positive for the greater good of defining our hand type in ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 4 AKJ85 AK74 875
Given the Precision club context, I must ask, "Why not open 1H?" Surely you'd expect to enjoy a more flexible auction, and you'd tell no lie.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 8 J953 AQT9 AK87
Employing a mildly different partnership style, the "correct" call might very well be 4S holding your hypothetical hand.
Barry Buehler's bidding problem: A8 984 AQ4 KQT63
Even in an SAYC-like system, it is necessary that a delayed major suit raise be forcing over opener's natural, but passable 2NT call.
Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: AKxxx ATxx xx Kx
Don't get it. Am I to understand that an immediate 3 call would have been nonforcing, whereas the actual sequence is GF?
Kerry Kappell's bidding problem: KQ964 QJ52 8 J42
1 ; later, perhaps 2 ... why make life difficult?
Mike Ma's bidding problem: Q QJxx KJ98xx Kx
I wouldn't have opened your hand.
Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: AKx AQx KJxxx Ax
If -- as the condition of problem states -- the partnership has no agreement aside from 4NT=minors, it seems perilous to launch into an artificial call beyond 5D. Thus my very cautious 6D call.
David Liu's bidding problem: 983 J82 KQT8 K82
Seems an understrength one diamond overcall gains little, yet risks a lot.
