BFUN - bridge is fun, or be fun.

I agree with others that that Bridging Unites Network is pretty bad.

Why? After all GIB does not have hard coded “if x>y prefer x”. All it does is simulate hands and double dummy results - and chose a bid. It is entirely possible that in this set of sims clubs played better than hearts…

4 went down one at 5 tables I believe, and -1 on the 3 was generous. The only other table that played 3 doubled ended up with -500 and 100-0% score.

Thanks. I changed in the text, but can't change the title.

I think that given the meaning of 2 - not. If 2 was weak, I would think that yes, but here it is just “my clubs are not good enough, and I have another problem”. That said I would not expect partner to pass 4 very often.

Meanings we can eliminate:
17-20 bal
Single suited
Both majors
Ridiculously strong
Likely any 5 card major (5332) hand.

I expect that with a major-minor two suiter partner, knowing his sleeping prospects, would chose to bid the major and then the minor. Moreover, I think partner is marked with couple of diamonds. So I opt for th 21-23 NT, which is consistent with ignoring the 1NT bid and (reasonable imo) assumption that you are not going to play 1NTX too often (as in once in a million hands).

I like the puzzle - it is addictive. I get to meet people I would have never met otherwise.

Vul against not at IMP, bidding with E hand to 5 level and no good fit for partner is hardly obvious. From E perspective 4 is not making, and there is no reason to believe 5 of anything does.

“And soon they will be looking for a less legalistic, confrontational passtime. And the club will close. And you will have nowhere to play bridge.”

If you wish to run a game where rules are not implemented, please tell me so - I won't show up. And don't worry, I will have where to play bridge - it is called BBO. The club where I played runs open and restricted game. This was not the restricted one.

Ed - there is no KQTx on the card…..

Carding - yes, leads, far less so.

It is not “never”. We might occasionally splinter with an A, but generally partner presumes X for the splinter.

Thank you all. The reason I asked is at my table the Q was led and I held the AJx (ducked). Opps said their leads are “standard” (nothing changed on their card either). When RHO later in the hand led the 9 I misplaced the K. It was my mistake in any case, and I definitely could have the hand better regardless of this. After the hand my opps insisted this is a standard lead from this holding, so I am just trying to make a sanity check.
LHO hand was KQT4,Qxx,xxx,xxx btw - if it matters.

Craig - point taken, thank you.
I intended the first sentence as “you decide to lead from” to clarify that this is the holding you are leading from. As the start point (e.g. look at Jim's comment). Basically what I wanted is what lead is implied from this holding when you play “standard leads”. Sorry if the OP is poorly phrased.
