How Many Hands of Bridge So Far?
Partner was dealt -- AKQxxxxxxx KQT -- 9 days ago in a Swiss.
Winston Chang's bidding problem: AQ943 J75 J83 J9
Meant to indicate 2 on the first round, I think.
2/1 structure question (major suit agreement at 2-level)
Thank you very much!
2/1 structure question (major suit agreement at 2-level)
Thanks; this is very helpful and gets me to a meaningful structure. Is it usual to look for (have a bid to describe) a fit in opener's 3-card (unless 5440) suit, as in the example above 1 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 3 - 4?
2/1 structure question (major suit agreement at 2-level)
Thanks. Is it typical then to bolt on a serious/nonserious structure to help distinguish between minimum and maximum opener hands, after opener shows shape at the 3 level?
Defense against 3NT
North might have thought S had AJ85, since W did not bid hearts on the 3rd round of bidding.
ATB - missed slam
I was actually S here, but when this hand was played on BBO, slam was found only twice out of sixteen times, and on unscientific auctions (one of which was 5 - 5 - 6 (!), the other of which was 1 - 1 - 3 - 6) Appreciate ...
ATB - missed slam
Yes, 3 would be a splinter in support of clubs here.
ATB - missed slam
2 is GF with 5 or more clubs, or balanced with 2 or more clubs (basically it ensures that other 2/1 bids promise at least 5). Opposite KJxx KJx KJx xxx, we would respond 1 on our agreements as well.
Winston Chang's bidding problem: J KQJ64 A8 AK965
The only expected responses are 3 and 4; other responses aren't discussed.
