The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
In 1952, Edgar Kaplan's article in the bridge world "New Science" was published. This article is often credited with drawing attention to the "old black magic" whereby bridge players (at all levels) would read partner's mannerisms, tempo, and tone of voice to determine the sort of hand he ...
World Class Lines of Play
World class lines of play often depend on the auction. If 2 showed 5-5 majors the squeeze is a huge favorite. But a lot of declarers probably had an auction where East bid 1 and hearts breaking 4-3 were a serious possibility (causing squeeze to fail but cross ...
Psychic Bids by US Players during the 1957 Bermuda Bowl and Related Deals
The double is a little risky sure, but even if there’s no psych we could have ace-king ace and two heart tricks quite easily, plus partner might have something since they are not in game. And if he psyched (which he’s already done many times this match) we ...
Psychic Bids by US Players during the 1957 Bermuda Bowl and Related Deals
I don't see anything particularly strange about this hand. After 1-P-3 (limit)-P-P, who backs into the auction with a takeout double? You couldn't double at the one-level when responder might have nothing, but now that you're two levels higher and responder showed his values ...
Follow ups to 2NT overcall of weak 2
Everything is a transfer, with transfer to their suit being stayman: (2)-2NT-(pass): 3 = stayman (transfer to their suit) 3 = hearts 3 = spades 3 = clubs (2)-2NT-(pass): 3 = diamonds 3 = four card spades (stayman = transfer to their suit) 3 ...
(1H) P (1S) P (2H) X = ?
I've always played that when they bid two suits, double is two-suited takeout. This applies whether they bid 1m-P-1M-p-2m or 1-p-1-p-2. Note that a two-suited takeout could easily be 2245 or the like (it's not really "penalty of the first-bid suit"). However, when they've ...
1m - 2M your choice.
I like IJS in a “standard” system and WJS in a strong club. The reasons for the difference: 1. In strong club you can play WJS like 0-9 but in standard this wide range is awkward. 2. In standard IJS help with slam auctions when opener has certain strong hands ...
Interference over a weak only multi-2!D
One other thing I noticed is that I saw a LOT of hands with Hx in one major and good four card support for the other (and like 13-15 hcp). In the style I gave where 2D is a six-card major, it's pretty safe to bid three of the ...
Interference over a weak only multi-2!D
For what it's worth, I generated 50 hands with the following constraints: Opener has 4-9 hcp with a 6-card major (and not 4-card other major) Opener's LHO has 11-17 hcp with 6+ diamonds Responder has 13+ hcp This last was because I thought with less than 13 hcp ...
Why do I need a convention card?
There's some subset of players who want to play a "relaxed" game and prefer not to do the work of filling out a full convention card. Most of them also have relatively few agreements and play something close to "club standard" (which these days might be a very basic ...
