Donald Lurie's bidding problem: A64 A87 973 KJ72
3: transfer to 3NT, promising a stopper. This is an old idea of Marty Bergen (‘Jump Cuebid as a Transfer to 3NT’, in ‘The Contract Bridge Bulletin’, August 1986, page 56–57). It is an advantage to have the overcaller on lead, is the idea. The 3 bid ...
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: QT53 A7 KJ654 AJ
Double. If partner responds 3, I follow up with 3, showing spades, diamonds and no hearts. (No, at this level not a strong hand with long spades; with that one bids 4 immediately.)
Responding 2!c with exactly 4!s +4!c GF?
1-(pass)-1 is an awkward begin of the auction. We therefore do not respond 1 on game-forcing values and just four spades, responding 2 instead. (We play Gazzilli, but not after 1-1.)
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: QT975 K7 976 A98
You are vulnerable at IMPs.
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
The new system is fairly similar to SAYC, as far as I know SAYC.
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
My country’s bridge league recently replaced our old ‘standard’ system taught to beginners, featuring four-card majors and strong twos, with a newer one featuring five-card majors and weak twos (but not 2/1 game force).
Andrew Straus's bidding problem: 9872 A92 JT AT53
2NT: 10–14 or equivalent with four(+) spades.
Fielder's Choice
4 as minors is for partners who remember (and has the advantage that 4 is possible), 4NT is for partners who forgot.
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: AQJ 7 9865 KQJ96
3NT, assuming 3 is forcing.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: QJT6 AKQJT J A62
Double would be majors. But I pass.
