When they X our 2!S transfer to !C
In an established partnership, I suggest the following: Opener's first obligation is to show a spade stopper. Without a stopper he must Pass. With a stopper, he makes his same bid as without the double. After opener's Pass, responder redoubles to re-transfer. Opener then makes the same bid ...
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: AQ8654 AKT6 3 K2
Do we interpret 5NT as: 1. Grand Slam Force 2. Pick a Slam 3. Generalized grand slam try?
Dave Robinson's bidding problem: Axx AK AKxxx Kxx
K&R = 22.0
Continuation after minor suit reverse
I play Ingberman, and the way I learned it, a bid of the unbid major, 2 in this case, is usually weak and denies a stopper in hearts. 2NT would be similarly weak, but would show a heart stopper.
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: A72 JT65 A84 876
This was a 'sanity check'. I thought 2 was standard and obvious. My partner thought 1 was right, and when I gave the hand to several teaching pros, to my surprise, they agreed with him.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: KQ KQT5 A63 J983
The hand really deserves a downgrade. KQ doubleton, isolated jack. K&R = 13.95. But everybody upgrades, hardly anybody downgrades.
BB QF USA1 vs. BULGARIA Session 2
On board 20, the 4 game was allowed to make by a defensive slip. This went unnoticed because 6 was made in the other room.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AT96 AJ KT653 T6
Right. K&R=14.35
Juraj Kvocek's bidding problem: J7 A5 AK876 KQ72
I agree that natural is the usual understanding, but I think unusual is better.
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: Q5 KT A6 AKQT654
Planning to rebid 3NT, not 3, over any response.
