Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
Problem is where do you stop. First up was outlawed years ago, forcing pass is close to that if you are allowed to open any hand that is a non opener and have ways of handling the super good hands. Western Rabbit which featured super light openers with jump shifts ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
Maybe it should go into the midchart, where it could be allowed in bracket 1 of regional KO's and Top levels where players of under 5000 master points have other events to play in. It is probably a dead horse, but for players like me, who have seldom if ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: T2 QT53 AQ65 A82
I think 3NT would show a club stopper, and only 1 major so you do not go by 3NT. Anything could be right here, but if partner has both majors they could bid 4 clubs and pick one. If partner has diamonds, no game may make here, hard hand. Other ...
PRECISION 2!C Opening rebid question: What is this Double
I play that 2 does not promise game values, where 2 is game forcing over 2. It makes more sense in this structure to play double as a more offensive TO than penalties. Partner has to have spades with at least invitational values or a club tolerance ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T96 AT KT54 QT64
I probably would have opened 1, giving me a different set of problems, but also would have responded 2NT to 2 showing this type of hand. With the hand given would have expected the heart Q to be with opener. Still 6 is a good contract given ...
Tom Allan's bidding problem: KQ3 A86 A95 AT85
Depends on how you define penalty. Partner can still pull this to 3 hearts with nothing. Anything partner has will probably set this and we might not make a game. It will also suggest 3NT rather than 4 hearts when that is the correct call.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: T AQ54 A963 JT94
If you play Precision, use the system. You have 2 defensive tricks, what else can partner expect?
ATB - missed slam
Are we playing responsive doubles here. A dbl by North and South bidding 4 hearts will make it easy. 6 should be good. Plus when partner volunteers hearts the diamond shortage becomes obvious.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: Q6 A AT6543 AT54
Hoping partner has AK 7th or 8th plus a side card. I believe on this auction I know where I am going, so why torture partner.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AKT86 T32 A AT96
I still do not see the extra king the next double will show. Would like at least an extra 1/2 trick for this double If Partner pulls to 3 spades, hope I do not get doubled. All odds point to partner having very little and not having 5 hearts ...
