Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
I think you misunderstand. Nowhere did the OP actually state that the 1N bid was not a balanced strong notrump hand. Or do you think that is alertable?
Dummy play on the bad claim of 6NT
Well then, we should call the director when trumps are placed on the right?
What's this X? (I believe I know the answer, but conflicting claims have been made).
Interesting treatment. It seems a bit like "Manfield" over a takeout double: redouble showing immediate interest in penalties; pass then double the featureless hand with decent point count. It does seem vulnerable to the "psychic raise"

Danny. I don't know. Yes it is easy for me to draw attention to this, but far harder to come up with an answer. All that you say is correct. But there is a crying need for being able to discover such information. I hope others can weigh in.

Indeed. This is the "I just cannot bear to let the opponents play the hand" approach to bridge. I have no hand and no shape, but hey, let's buy it at the three level with a combined 17 count and seven trumps.

This makes my head ache. You open x Kxx KJxxx KQxx, or some other pile as so many seem to. LHO overcalls 1, p goes quietly, and RHO bids 2. According to Nigel this hand will double for takeout. In that universe, I guess, you are quite sanguine ...
Apportion the blame - no play slam
I am between Steve and Marty. The Q would be better in (and would even give 6 some play (4x would be down a bundle,though). So, the Q is not pulling full weight. But to suggest that the hand is no better than AKxxx Kxxx is ...
ATB -- Missed slam
A virtually unbiddable slam? I find myself bug eyed in disbelief. Slam would be good even opposite x Kxxxx Axxx Axx, yet we cannot bid with the K on top of that?
ATB -- Missed slam
It seems to me that there is a good case for artificial bids after the raise. Assuming that opener would splinter in then a possible scheme by responder might be that 3 asks for stiff , then 3 promises it. Note that even when responder has ...
