Open Orlando Discussion Thread
If you're staying at the Hotel prepare to walk. The screens are set up in the rooms that are farthest from the lobby and that is a long walk.
Interference over a weak only multi-2!D
Penalty. 3major is p/C;4clubs says transfer me; 4diamonds says bid your suit. 4major is to play
Equal Level Conversion Parameters
On the other hand I had Axxxxx/x/x/xxxxx. It went 1heart double 4hearts and I bid 4spades and made five. At the other table it went 1heart 2diamonds 4hearts all pass and they made four hearts. Partner had Kxxx/Jxx/AQJxx/x Sometimes you go for 1100 sometimes ...
Equal Level Conversion Parameters
I've had very good success doubling any heart bid with 4351 or 4261 distribution with minimum points. When I overcall diamonds over any heart bid, my partner knows that I do not have four spades. I also double 1club with 4513 and double 1diamond with 4531 hands. This way ...
Can you bid this slam?
I'm a strong believer that North should bid 3hearts directly or what ever your limit raise is. It's much harder to defend when the auction goes 1ht - 3ht - 4ht then 1ht - (1nt or 1sp) - any - 3hearts. Over 3hearts directly, South knows he's in the slam zone.
1S 2S 2NT
Open 1NT with 15-17 balanced. 1sp - 2sp shows that you would accept at least one game try. You don't want the auction going 1sp - 2sp - any game try - 3spades. Respond 1NT if you can't accept any game try. After 1sp - 1NT - 2cl - 2sp, opener will think that there ...
Legal Agreement or not?
If 2spades is in theory natural and partner does not play it as such, then if you really have spades, he can do what he wants. However, if you don't have spades he must take you back to spades if he has support. If he doesn't that would ...
Legal Agreement or not?
I don't like the PP penalty. I think what they did was completely illegal and they should be penalized one place. If they came in 3rd, they get 4th. They should know better.
GF relays in Transfer Walsh
After 1club (normal club opener) - 1 diamond (showing hearts) 1heart is a multi-way bid. A weak notrump, three-card raises, very good club hands and 5-level splinters.
BW 2/1: Serious 3NT
I have strong opinions about 3NT being non-serious and cuebids being serious. After the auction like 1sp - 2any - 2spades - 3spades, do you really want to bid 4diamonds as a non-serious cuebid which could help the opponents when game might be touch and go? AKJxx/xxx/Axx/Qx is a non-serious ...
