Showing spades after 1m (1!H)
For me this depends on how natural the minor suit opening is. If it’s 3+ I like double showing four spades and 1 showing five. Most hands without spades can raise openers minor. If the minor opening is 2+ (including all balanced hands in some range) then I ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
It's not at all clear what the right thing to measure might be at MP -- comparing just these two leads on double-dummy play isn't really the accurate thing to do. There could be pairs playing 3NT from the other side, or pairs playing a doubled partial our way ...
What percentage of the cost of attending ACBL Nationals are Card fees?
My estimates for Las Vegas looked like: $1800 for hotel (ten nights) $1200 for entries (I think they raised NABC to $30/session, two people for ten days) $1000 for food $2000 for flights (expensive to fly from Europe) So entries were only about 20% but the total cost seemed ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
You don’t need to beat the hand off the top. If partner has QJx or Qxx or Axx or maybe even Qx a heart lead will often work out. Even if opener can/will hold up in the suit, you will sometimes gain.
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
I did eliminate responders five-four majors hands. With respect to 4M-6m hands I think most people stayman on those? I don’t really know what the right assumptions are on shapely non slam hands. I tend to show my shape as much as methods allow (for me the given auction ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
I ran a slightly different simulation, allowing dummy to have any singleton and disallowing partner from holding a six-card spade suit (figuring he might've bid, especially given he's likely to have some values). My results: 5: Average tricks 2.91, 18.31% to set (3 is the same ...
Raising 1m after a double - what is most common?
We use: 2 = normal single raise (less than invitational, inverted minors OFF in competition) 3 = exactly invitational-to-game raise 2NT = either weak preemptive raise or a GF+ raise (forcing one round obviously) jump-in-a-new-suit as fit-showing (suit bid plus diamonds) XX = general values, four-card fit is possible (five-card fit not ...
Winning Leads
These books are very controversial because they are based heavily on double-dummy simulation, and their evidence contradicts the conventional wisdom (in the USA at least) of making frequent "active" leads away from honors in many/most situations. If one is willing to keep an open mind, I think the books ...
Transfers after 1NT - 2C - 2D?
We play a different structure with somewhat similar effects. Our sequences after 1NT-2-2: 2 = 5+ exactly invite, NF, does not promise hearts 2NT = balanced invite 3 = GF relay looking for a minor-suit fit, normally balanced 3 = diamond shortness without a five-card major (i.e ...
what is 2 over 1 over takeout double?
Less than invitational, has a wide range that includes both "weak runout" and "somewhat constructive" (would start with a redouble to invite). Certainly not forcing.
