Control-Showing Responses to Strong 2!c Openings: General Thoughts?
I have always played 2D, no Aces, 2H, one ace or 2 K, 2Sp an ace plus a K or better. If after 2c, 2d 2sp,, 3sp would show a feature like a King or a singleton and 3 trump support , and if not 3sp- 4Sp, no outside features but ...
RIP Harold Feldheim
An amusing story from my earliest bridge days, in the early seventies playing against him in Lake George,we were on last round had a kibitzer, the late Don Cowan.During the hand Harold admonished his lady partner with KEEP your hand back opponents can see all your cards, when ...
Entering leads on Bridgemates
Sevearal years ago I wrote to the ACBL asking that the opening lead be entered on each hand. Never did I hear again about it. To me it seems all important, even if you want to learn something about why a possible good player found that defence. What can it ...
Beth Palmer (1952-2019)
She was a most formidable opponent, having played against her in many international competitions. A very sad loss for the bridge world. May she rest in peace.
If 5-4 in !c-!d, what bid do you open with?
Maybe my style is too rigid,but it behooves me consider opening anything but 1Diamond, as the thought of rebidding one NT with a singleton is impossible for me.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
If the opponent meant it as a sign off, it would have made sense, maybe she did, and did not want to embarrass her partner, it was not mentioned though, and incidentally her partner had a few words when they saw that I was disgruntled, and responder said, yes partner ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
the bidding I reported earlier, was totally different, and my apology to everyone, it went id-2c-2d- 2sp-3s-now came the big break in tempo too long, -4c-4nt -5d-6c opener-, knowing responder did not have 4Sp after the table action, her hand was-KQ54 J6 KJ10976 4 They did not get a good ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
I said opener passed 6c I meant bid 6c over 5D SORRY!!
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
To-day the bidding went by the opposition- E W 1D-2c 2D-2Sp 3sp-Big break in tempo( obvious to anyone at the table I do not have 4Sp) - 4NT(opener) 5D- 6C!! The opener held KQ54 J6 KJ10976 4 and actually passed 6C. They agreed on Spades, blackwood was bid and Spades ...
What does this bid mean?
Since 1D- 1H 1NT- 3H is a slam try ( even stronger than going through 2 way new minor) then it would have no other meaning in my system than 6H and 5 Spades,this bid really would have to be discussed,by the partnership. The only other possibility, is a ...
