Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
how many spades?
Right. Passing 5 cannot be that costly as we are unlikely to get out for less than -3, and 6 may be ice. Sacs without shortness tend to be wrong. I'll try to win the match on another board.
Is there a standard meaning for this redouble?
I have the hand that would raise spades if they passed.
In the Well: Russ Jones
HI Russ, thanks for being 'in the well'. The ACBL BOD seems to be working harder than ever and I would like to know if you are open to allowing BOG or other league members to help out on BOD committees, not just for resources but as full voting members ...
Missed Game-YBTJ
It is borderline, but I would cue 2 with South's 21 HCP. Game takes good breaks and good guessing.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AQ J863 KJ72 987
There was no edit button this time so I could change my post to delete a small club.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AQ J863 KJ72 987
Sorry I did not give your partner a chance to weigh in when I passed in 1st chair holding, 87543, AK42, 83, A63 and it went all pass after that! Personally, I think we all had our bid at the table.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 2 A73 AKJ963 T98
Worth the risk at IMPS, pass at Matchpoints.
Assessing the blame
They must open junk for N not to bid 6N after 2N, or for S to pass 4N.
what is 4!d?
Tough to know what to do when the 2 bid is not alerted. If it is natural 4 cannot be. If it is multi or in some way does not show , then I agree 4 is natural.
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: K4 KQ43 AK932 A2
Pass. Can't you tell partner is trying to hide under the table with their Yarborough and no fit? Where do you expect to take tricks versus 2 X? S said 2 was forcing. Let them bid their brains out.
