So 54% (so far) or the participants would deliberately lead against the agreements just to make the lead more readable. Hmmm

Partner had one ace, fit, a few spades and some soft values and optimistically assumed 2 key-cards and a void for my 5 bid. RHO had AKQxxxxxx (9 spades) and Ax in hearts and pessimistically assumed 3 key-cards and a void for our combined 6 bid. Bridge is fun.

Thank you for your feed-back. In case you are wondering they do have 3 Aces but cannot make 6. Leading the J results in -2 as the dummy is singleton in both majors.

We also need people with lower IQ to join in as the smart ones are hard to beat.

I have to admit it did not crossed my mind. Partner can have as few as 3 clubs while I have already found our 9 card diamond fit. XX showed 3 diamonds.

Dully noted. I am not used to create bidding polls. Please abstain and comment.

Adriano,

What do you do if the first 12 cards are 10 and 2? 2A00?

Thanks

I have been playing the system for about 5 years and I have the same problem. I am calling it “Cheater's Club” and try to make it sound like a joke…

I chose Q because David Burn wrote a book.

I like OS very much and still play some simplified version of it mostly to avoid disasters due to forgetfulness.

If you are disciplined with the Intermediate Jump Overcalls they are particularly effective as your side know where it is, while the opponents feel robbed and tend to overbid.

Could someone please give an example of a hand where one should bid differently if RHO is known not have a 4441 pattern as opposed to a hand where RHO might have 4441 pattern (systemically of course)?

I knew exactly what to lead. The fact that it back-fired created the premises to open the poll.

For the curious: I have bid 5 and it was a disaster. The opening bidder double for diamond lead and a bloody cross-ruff ensued for -1100. (They can make 4 and we can make 3)

My thought process was:
1. Partner did not sit the double so he has some values. He would pass with a yarborough and hope I can get 3 tricks.
2. The defense on 5 will start with 2 high clubs forcing my K.
3. There is a good chance he has 2-3 spades.
4. 5 might have been the preferred called on the other table as opposed to double.

As far as humor and bridge go together let's not forget the poorbridge site http://www.poorbridge.com/. One liners may be found in the “Horoscope” area
