Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Opening and Rebid with a 15-17 NT
Probably most will disagree, but I open 1C and rebid 2C.
Is it not AI for South to know that he/she is unsure of his/her own agreements?
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
When partner opens 1M and you have a void, I believe there is about a 90% chance that partner has a 6 card or longer suit using a multinomial approximation. While the two opps passes slightly lowers this probability, I still would expect partner to rebid some number of hearts ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
Michael and John, you are correct. I did indeed distribute 8 hearts among 34 vacant spaces. The true probability is 44.6%. However, I still feel that pass is better. With suits breaking badly, I'm more than happy defending on this hand. I also think there is a better ...
Revoke established or not?
A literal interpretation of the OP implies that declarer led a card out of turn following the failure to follow suit, hence no revoke.
Restricted Choice - or not?
If we assume that West will always play her lowest spot, then the finesse and the drop are equally likely to succeed. If West will play a random spot, the fact that we have not yet seen her play the 9 is a restricted choice situation in itself, making the ...
Easy ATB, but how should the auction have gone?
I'd be too worried about partner leaving in the X
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: 765 --- QJT9876 T63
3 would be a weak jump shift.
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: --- 9874 5432 J9765
Our agreements over the double are: 3 is a mixed raise (7-9 with 4+ card support), 2 is either 6-10 with 3 card support or <7 with 4+ card support. 4 would have been preemptive -- a legitimate option on the deal. On the actual hand, we end ...
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: --- 9874 5432 J9765
While it's not for everyone, I think 2 is justifiable, for in addition to mildly preempting the opps out of their spade fit, the void gives the hand 1-2 tricks in value (which is more than raising with 3 queens/ 6 hcps). The questions I am interested in ...
