Yu Chang's bidding problem: Q9xx AKQxx x JTx
Hi Dave, It seems I should have asked just 1 question. Can you clarify you would bid with this hand or you would bid with spades and diamonds switched? Thanks.
Yu Chang's bidding problem: AKJx KQ9xx Kxx A
thanks for the example and explaination. As for me, I would never open 2NT with 54 majors myself. If I have to give a hand example, it would be KQJx xxxxx AK AK. basically, I treat the majors as 44.

would you give us an example hand that you would open 2NT with 54/45 majors. thanks.
A few Walsh Questions...
@Gordon @Ed Thanks. @Leonard Thanks. About your point on opening 1C with 44 minors, I do open 1C when I have suitable hand, such as when my 4xC suit is much better than my 4xD suit. I do not worry about missing D fit since partner could respond 1D if ...
A few Walsh Questions...
@Phil 1. I only play Walsh after 1C-1D. I thought most players follow that. I dislike missing 44 spade fit when responder has 44 Majors and weak hand. 2. With 4234 shape, I have no issue if opener choose either way. But I will never bid 1NT with (5422) shape ...
How good a 1651 hand needs to be to do 2 over 1 game force?
well said.

the simulation was meant to find what happens when opener has the worst fit minimum hands, how will a heart contract end up with. yes, we realize the simulation can be improved. if opener has 5134 and 15, he would not pass and that was not the simulation goal.
How good a 1651 hand needs to be to do 2 over 1 game force?
The point is this: If you respond 1NT, you risk a pass from opener when he has flat min hand and miss game. If partner would rebid, then what you bid first is less of a concern. You will always reach game if there is one and you might reach ...
How good a 1651 hand needs to be to do 2 over 1 game force?
That is how I play. But most people did not play that way (at least among my partners/teammates/friends, they do it only when I force them to), thus I did not make that a choice.
How good a 1651 hand needs to be to do 2 over 1 game force?
Good point. I was on defense, thus forgot about this important issue. NS plays semi-forcing, but it is more like 95% forcing. Opener may pass with minimum flat hand that has 7+ losers.
