Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: JTx QJ98 A8xxx A
I always tell my partner to NEVER bid 4s directly with 4 cards after 1m 1M 2M. Just in case I get one of those hands.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Ax AKJx 9xxxx xx
Reward is great vs risk of going down 1
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Axx Q9xxx Txx Tx
Partner has at most 2D after you hear 3D. With his 44+ in the round suit we have a 9 card fit. I bid 3h and sorry partner if we go down.
Odd/Even number of Keycards wich one is more likely ?
I'm incline to say 2 key cards will be the average. With less, I intend to show a keycard rather than asking (or showing in this example).
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: KJT7xxx --- xx xxxx
Worse case scenario, I lose 8 tricks. At 3
, I would be -4 (-1100), Greater than slam. At 2
, I would be -3 (-800), lower than slam. Therefore, I chose only 2
at this unfavorable vul.
Where is the Quantitative bid here?
I added your suggestion in the poll answers.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: J8xxx 8x A9 KTxx
Are we debating to bid 1
to force the lead with this awful suit?
Stéphane Turcotte's lead problem: 975 T62 KQ642 42
I know KQ looks normal lead here, but with 4S direct and no counter-invite, I think it's OK to hope for a club ruff?
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Kx AQ9xx A 98xxx
In my opinion with restrained space because of 3
, south with say 5
should X because of the tolerance for
. With this in mind, 3S should have 5
. Therefore 4
looks pretty safe.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: xx AQ AKQxxxx xx
Hand is just too strong for just 3D even with xx clubs.
