Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Bermuda Bowl RR6: USA1 vs. SWEDEN
I don't think declarer showed four hearts. I think 3 denied a five card major and that 3NT denied four spades.
What Major Suit Distribution?
Exactly 4-4 for me in most partnerships. With one partner we play 3 as puppet to 3 here, in with case 3 would be a slamtry with 5-5.
Playing with and against the GIBs
Why should it? In bridge as we know it you are not told beforehand that you have the strongest hand at the table.
3 ways to support 1M opener in 2/1 auction
Those who play 4M as a picture bid, would you say that 4 denies control in just clubs or in both clubs and hearts in the sequence 1-2; 2-4?
3 ways to support 1M opener in 2/1 auction
I play: 2M = shape ask (does not deny 4cM) 3M = cue ask (does not deny 4cM) 4M = 4M-5m, good suits, no side suit control jump in new suit = 4M and good 5m, short in bid suit
Protecting the field?
If you had played the husband and the wife in final hand and they would have lost the tournament because the queen actually did drop, could they have made the same argument? If not, it feels a bit strange that they can make it now.
Responses to a 1!d 8-11 balanced
Tommy Larsson created a system based called Aubyruter which was based on Magic Diamond and Carrotti. It included 1 = 8-11 BAL. The system (in Swedish) in on Syskon: http://syskon.nu/system/002_aubyruter_01.pdf The follow ups to 1 are: 1 = 4+ or any strong hand ...
What's the best result you've lost IMPs on (or worst you've gained on)?
After I preempted, I played 5Dx= for 750 when our opponents were cold for 6H. We lost 24 imps on the board.
Limit Raise?
I would (mis)bid 4H.
What treatment is best after a reverse following a forcing NT response?
Natural.
