Another "what is standard?" poll
Jay- Interestingly, I would think all those auctions are NF(assuming the 2nd one was supposed to be 1M not 2M)
Another "what is standard?" poll
Before this poll, yes. Now I am not sure(maybe in mps yes and imps no) I would think my expert partner would q-bid, bid a new suit or jump to 3NT if he was really sweating me passing it.
Another "what is standard?" poll

If philosophy...
David- Interesting topic. With Bobby, we play that if they raise 1 to 2, a jump to 3 would be intermediate(limited raise AND they have a known fit) On the auction you gave, we would play the jump to 3 intermediate at vul/nv. Our ...
In The Well: Chip Martel
Chip, Thanks for going in the well and congrats on all your past and recent successes. I have had the good fortune of being your teammate many times over the years, thanks for that! One of my all time favorite hands came from the 2011 Vandy finals(no, not that ...
