William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
I humbly apologize to all that do not understand standard american bidding. You are from a different generation and it was silly of me to post this hand. I am very, very sorry. I wrongly thought I was asking voters as to what they might bid over 6H. So, thank ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
Again, the question is not whether or not the auction is what everyone thinks it should be. The question is whether or not, given the information you have (Partner has the KQ of hearts and not the K of D.) whether or not you should bid seven. Really? You don ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
Everyone has their methods. We play 3H invitational. 4H game values without extras. 3C (fourth suit) either searching for 3N, the correct game, or showing extras, clarified by next call. Simple natural bidding. It amazes me to this day that so many modern players don't understand how to use ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
If you read all the comments, you'll see that we were playing standard. 2D was not a game force and 3H would have been invitational. I did not include this in the description since I wasn't interested in how the auction "should" have gone. I was interested in ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
As I mentioned in an earlier comment, if I had it to do over, I'd have used the GSF. Harder to do at the table :-) But, again, I bid seven, it didn't (doesn't) make even though partner had the KQ of hearts and a stiff diamond, and ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
OK, makes sense. That said, we play standard and 3H would not have been forcing for us, just invitational. Thought about bidding 3C, but in standard, that still does not show heart support, though it doesn't rule it out. There are multiple methods for finding/ruling out the DK ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
Good way to look at it. But, the grand appears to be in the neighborhood of 75%. Two chances: finding partner with a stiff diamond or finding the K of diamonds onside. How high a percentage should a grand be to bid it in a regional team event? By the ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
I presented the problem to a friend of mine who is a noted national champion. You need to find out about two suits: the K/Q of hearts and whether or not opener has the K or a stiff diamond. My friend had no solution for finding out about all ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
You know, I actually thought about bidding a GSF of 5N over 2H. I did waffle and went through keycard, knowing I could find out about the DK if we had all the keycards. After 5S, I bid 5N to find out about specific kings. (Partner would show lowest ranking ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
OK. Would partner bid 4D with a stiff? This hand is down to finding either the K of D or a stiff. From the auction at hand, we know partner doesn't have the K.
