Overcalling 1NT with a singleton
In my book, ‘natural’ is the opposite of ‘artificial’. The latter is defined in the (2017) Laws as ‘A bid, double, or redouble that conveys information (not being information taken for granted by players generally) other than (or in addition to) a willingness to play in the denomination named or ...
After bidding Stayman, what is 3D?
As I play over a strong notrump, 1NT-2-2-3 is ‘Weissberger’: 5-5 majors, invitational or better. 1NT-2-2/-3 is a fit in the major and forcing to game at least. A diamond suit, with or without second suit, is shown via an immediate transfer.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: K9 K962 KJ98 863
As Michael above said, nowadays 2NT is usually played as something with a spade fit.
Is this announcement required for forcing Stayman?
For what I know, a player may be obliged to either alert or announce, but never both.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: 943 KQT64 Q85 QT
To me the hand looks like a mixed raise and in my methods 2 shows just that (with 2NT the limit raise). With no mixed raise available, I’ll sell the hand as a light limit.
Just saw this on the Neapolitan Club website.
‘Ne bis in idem’ does not apply when there is a ‘novum’.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: T93 Q73 J K98543
Double of 2 will probably be seen as showing a penalty pass of 1 doubled.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: T93 Q73 J K98543
Partner bid 1 instead of doubling. That suggests she may well have a void in hearts or otherwise a freak hand without much in clubs.
Mike Gill's bidding problem: --- AQ9754 A8732 AK
I play (and voted for) 4 as Leaping Michaels: diamonds and either major. 3 is both majors. 2NT is obviously useful in a natural sense.
When is a Pass a Pass?
Not really: I still have UI in the play.
