Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Best Use of this Double
You have a clear explaination, but on this auction it seems like opponents have at least 8 cards in s. Is it really often best to double them at 2-level if their trump suit breaks 3-2 at worst? What do I miss?
Best Use of this Double
What exactly does that mean?
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: T953 97 963 AK83
Depends on style and methods. But if I pass first, then I double on 2. In the worst case I end in 2s which would be the contract I would have been in anyway. I can t sell out now as partner could easily be short in
Is this a Lebensohl situation for you?
Your approach loses in two important cases: 1: Partner has a 2-suiter and cant bid it in pass out. (2NT would usually show that) 2: Partner has opponents suit and would pass, but you will bid 2NT taking away this chance) Obviously you gain sometimes with your approach, not sure ...

Opening 1NT with 4-5 touching suits and an unstopped doubleton
With this shape and a helpful system you have no problems with a 1 opening. On 1NT you just bid 2. On a GF 2/1 you should be always able to describe your hand.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AKQ432 Q42 Q42 5
What is the reason that most other people think that this is a bad idea?
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: 9654 852 AK9 A63
What else could you have than a hand like this? With more values, you would have acted right away, with spades only you would pass now. So you need to have exactly a hand like this. I think your partner can put the contract. (We could have more diamonds I ...
Two Matchpoints problems
They play weak NT, so 3 showed 15-17, with 4s
