Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: Q97542 KQ93 AK4 ---
or partner might be 1345 and we turn +500 into -300 if we bid.
Bidding question related to UI
Clearly without any UI you would pass: You have dead minimum, no shape and at best 1 defensive trick. Why would you do something else, just because your partner explained your bid differently?
RHO open 1NT, you have 2524 and 15 points
I would pass 1NT, but then compete when they transfer in spades. (double or 2NT)
Kibitzer draws attention to a false concession
In practice, declarer might only show the 2 high trumps (the tricks he was taking). In that case I would normally not bother to ask what the last card was (unless I am interested what was the whole hand or I thought that he revoked).
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 652 AJ98652 7 K3
First Hand might have bid 3NT with Kx of spades and stiff king of hearts, hands 2 and 3 look like 2NT openings to me.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 652 AJ98652 7 K3
Maybe my standards for 3 are a bit higher, but I would be worried about missing 7 than going off in 5.
Shiang Chen's bidding problem: xx AT9xxx AQTx J
I bid 4 on the premise that hearts are agreed. Surely if partner wanted to play in clubs opposite a singleton he would have rebid them over 2.
Robb Gordon's bidding problem: 92 KJ85 K842 A64
I would pass for now, mby I get the chance to double 1NT.
Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: KQJ62 --- KJT43 952
Well if I could show minimum with shortness without revealing it unless partner specifically asks I would do that. But given the system I would choose an unpopular and maybe unusual auction because I believe not revealing my hand would be better in the long run. I am prepared to ...
Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: KQJ62 --- KJT43 952
I would just bid game and not tell them what to lead at matchpoints. We might have a slam, but given my distributional minimum it might be quite hard to bid anyway. And if partner has a monster, he might still move.
