Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
Ray - yes, we certainly open 1NT with a 4-card major (to do otherwise is unplayable in my view) and sometimes even a 5-card major. What I meant to say is that when we have a 4M - 4m balanced hand outside the range for a weak NT, we open the major ...
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
In my weak NT partnership, I wouldn’t have this problem as our agreement is that with a 4-card major and a 4-card minor within a balanced hand of 15-19 points (ie outside our 1NT and 2NT opening ranges) we open the major. I appreciate that this will be considered ...
How should East-West get into this auction?
This is a hand from the EBU summer festival Championship teams. North- South playing the style whereby all weak NT hands without a 5-card major open 1.
How do you play the 2nd double?
A very close poll thus far. My hand was approximately Jxx - KJ9x AT8xx. I thought that the same general rule should apply as after 1 any - x - 1M. Partner thought my double was responsive, but the misunderstanding didn’t harm us on this occasion.
How do you play the 2nd double?
2 wasn’t alerted. It is fairly common for this to be forcing (F1) in the UK.
How do you play the 2nd double?
My partner and I had the agreement that after 1 any - x - 1M (natural), x shows 4 cards in the major (with some values obviously) and 2M as 5+ cards in M. No specific agreement in this situation though.
Simon Mostyn's bidding problem: KQT732 --- Q532 854
That’s correct Richard. The pairs do battle once a month with an evening consisting of 3 rounds of 8 boards each. 16 pairs in the league with an all-play-all, so a league “season” lasts 5 months. A top on a board is 14 (we don’t use half match ...
Steven Allen's bidding problem: 2 AQ986 KT8432 J
I abstained because I think the initial negative double is flawed. It is a better description of the hand to bid 2, then 4.
David Eddleston's bidding problem: 54 AK5 AKJ9732 3
I see I have made very much a minority choice but I like 1X:1Y:3NT to show around 8 playing tricks in opener’s suit and denying a primary fit in responder’s suit. Obviously the singleton C isn’t ideal.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: A43 KQ72 K984 K3
If we have a clear partnership agreement that 3 is forcing, I agree that that’s the best bid. If not, I temporise with 3. Now if partner bids 3N, I’ll correct to 4, showing mild slam interest.
