Bronze Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
but partner, I only had 2 points, and one of them was worthless!
AKQ AKxx xxx xxx looks pretty good. xx AKxx Axx AJxx does, too. Just to play devil's advocate.
Bud Hinckley's bidding problem: KQ63 J4 QJT2 AJ9
I would make a fake jump shift. Undiscussed, this sequence sounds to me a hand that had a touch too defense for a 4 opener than a hand just shy of 2.
Where did we go wrong?
East should probably bid whatever number of no trump shows 13 balanced in your system at his first call.
Dominating Shift
Assuming East is trusting our plays in spades to not be a doubleton, I thought it was entirely possible he had JTxx and was screaming for a diamond over a club.
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: KJ854 AK3 --- KQT64
"Maybe 3 hearts and 0 dias is only 1 card off from 2 hearts and 1 dia. Compared to how far off this distribution is for a t/o *." Challenge accepted! 5 and 0 is only 1 card off from 4 and 1. 4=3=1 ...
IMPed Pairs: towards a better datum
So, if another pair has the same accident and ends up in 3, both pairs get 0 IMPs, since they both hit datum in their denomination?
Disappointing Responses to Bidding Problem-Posted on 8/12
"I posted my bidding problem as a bidding problem. Now I'm repostingng as an article."
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
I read and responded to both parts. I'm glad it's changed in the last couple of years. Pointing to 296 mentions of an email address is misleading, as at least some proportion of that is simply the address listed on the cover.
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
I'm glad to see that that's changed in the last couple of years. However, just because the Daily Bulletin started putting an email address on its cover (which is where the 200+ hits come in) is not the same as askong for hands to be sent in.
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
I will say at the NABCs I have attended, there was no indication hand submissions were encouraged, or where to submit them.
