What does this double mean?
Much easier to ask than to search.
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
While perhaps less eloquently than Michael Hargreaves down thread, Mike Ma made exactly the same point here as Mr Hargreaves did. One wonders why the reaction is so different.
What are your agreements?
I would expect partner's pass denies a biddable 5-card suit and the reopening double invites partner to bid 4-card suits now. I see two workable schemes. I prefer the first. 2N shows a hand with such high offensive potential (High ODR) that you do not want partner to pass ...
Howard Sandler's bidding problem: 96532 AKQJ2 Q Q5
I'd want partner to have 4 cards to play in that suit. 1 buys me that information cheaply. If you don't agree that look like a 4-carder, then maybe you'd agree look like a 6 carder ;-)
The problem with polling
There are many biases in polling that unpracticed people will not recognize. I do not expect Directors to be experts in creating unbiased polls. There are two considerations that will help: 1) A standardized polling framework that helps eliminate language bias a priori. This can be provided as training material ...
How to play the trump suit
If we put KQ, A, K in West's hand, that leaves J, QJ, J, J outstanding. What is clear, is that if West does have KQ, A, K, they can't have the QJ too (that's 1NT, right?). Note, you need the A with West or either to ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 8642 62 KJ65 AQ9
Unless I am missing something this is a prototypical hand for the positive raise given 2 can have a wide range in SA.
The point is the odds that opponent's hands approach 24 HCP as opposed to 15 HCP are so very small that expected value in the long run favors the treatment outlined above. So, it is fair to say that holding 25 HCP and RHO opens 1NT is about as ...
If the auction comes to me in 4th seat after 2 passes I can expect Opponents to hold about 20 HCP and our side about the same. That means partner has 18 or so BEHIND the 1NT bidder if I hold one Queen. Now a double by me in balancing ...
Pass in tempo. I fully expect partner to take some action with any singleton or void. Partner knows I can have a monster when responder passes.
