April 1st announcement?
It Happened One Day
Lead directing, looked like KQx or KQxx. Which must have been a possibility for Zimmerman as he didn't bid 5C, but 4NT, pick a minor...
It Happened One Day
SanF NABC 2019, Soloway Swiss event (first weekend), rpund 10. Zimmerman has 1-2-5-5 and 7 hcp. Pass, pass to him, white vs red. Pass without a thought. My partner opens strong 1C in 4th seat and we have in tempo auction for approx 5 bidding rounds when my partner bids ...
Adam Grossack's bidding problem: AT743 542 54 KJ5
Vulnerable 2-level overcalls promise 6 cards? That may be the style/agreement for some, I strongly disagree.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: JT9743 QJ86 9 63
Can you share the actual layout?
Jacob Freeman's bidding problem: xxx Axx ATxx Axx
Should partner invite slam if he needs a 12-14 hand to have 3 aces and a working queen? Dubious strategy ;)
Jacob Freeman's bidding problem: xxx Axx ATxx Axx
Would you key-card with something like AKxxx - xx KQxxxx ... or would you expect partner to bid again with prime cards?
Jacob Freeman's bidding problem: xxx Axx ATxx Axx
Partner could then easily have something like: Jxx AJxx AKx Jxx I guess we approach auctions like this differently. I do believe the hand above must cooperate at the 4-level vs unlimited hand below game. Maybe s/he doesn't for other partnerships.
Jacob Freeman's bidding problem: xxx Axx ATxx Axx
If partner shows slam interest vs 12-14, and our 12-14 contains 3 aces, we owe him another bid. Or s/he most likely didn't have a hand that should have invited slam in the first place.
XYZ question
For me both are invitational. The difference is that the 1st sequence is a hand that's only interested in 4, based on shape, so opener can pass/raise. The 2nd is based on hcp and opener may suggest 3NT.
