Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K952 QJ8 A3 A864
'KQxx xxx xx AQJx would be classical minimum values.' I think I'd feel happier about doubling with that - it looks like a hand with substantially better ODR than ours.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K952 QJ8 A3 A864
Well I passed this for similar reasons and got a bad result when opener rebid 1N and I had to pass that out. That's an auction where X obviously rates to be a winner (subject to P having 4 spades), but I struggle to think of any others - if ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AK532 QJT Q95 A9
It's unlikely to be true for about 50% of the pairs in *any* field
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: AK AKT95 Q T9864
So you want to make a bid on the grounds that no-one knows what it means?
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: AK AKT95 Q T9864
On most hands where the club suit is relevant, I would expect 3 to make it harder for P to evaluate his hand, not easier. As Alan mentioned, QJx would look excellent, also Kxx would look good, Jxx promising, and x or xx would look rubbish. Once in a ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
Sure, the worst slam I've seen was 0%, but I don't think they're a great benchmark ;) I make it closer to 32-33% fwiw, depending on how much a good break in one suit improves the chances of a good break in another
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
As for useful systems, I'm still partial to my own *cough*Fantunes*cough* variant, which lets you open this a natural 1, show a strong hand over P's natural 1 response, hear a negative from P, and then continue with a natural and forcing 3 ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
The actual auction continued: 4 5 6 Partner put down this beauty: xxxx xxxx x Jxxx Certainly a better contract than 6, but that was little consolation for the predictable -1.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
I bid 6. Partner put down this beauty: xxxx xxxx x Jxxx It 'had play', but that was little consolation for the predictable -1.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 72 AKT7542 --- KQ76
P had something like x xx xxxx AJTxxx. When I passed as per the current majority, he doubled and we took them for 300 instead of bidding our cold slam. In retrospect I feel like I should have bid - he's quite likely to have a spade void on the ...
