Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Transfers Or not ?
One negative of transfers which NEVER seems to be mentioned, is that when Dummy goes down, both defenders now know the point range of each other. Very useful at Match points. Of course one has to be pretty good to take advantage of that, but for experts who don't ...
How about some levity to take our minds off the world's dilemma?
The general standard of play at my local club is Intermediate, and the lead of 4th highest seems to be one of the 10 commandments, whether it is against a suit or NT. QJ10982, quite often they lead the 9. But the wildest I have seen was partner North playing ...
What does 4!C mean?
Its always Gerber at my local club, so that's what I play.
Should we have taken the push?
"In NZ the skip bidder puts the card out and removes it after 10 seconds. Then the next player calls". Yeah, right.

Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
I teach that the key here is that one needs 23 points to play in 2NT. If one is going past that one needs more points. Therefore the opener needs 15 to reverse after a new suit at the 2 level, eg 10 points. For a normal reverse one needs ...
More Help Needed
negative doubles, discarding and signalling, the difference between leads to a NT contract, and a suit contract, when to finesse, make a plan.
