Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
UI logical alternatives? (Bridgewinners Poll suggests yes, surprising to me)
I think the hesitation over 1 was completely irrelevant to everything. The fact that North has doubled 1NT (whatever it means or was intended to mean) implies that North would have had something to think about over 1. Any form of score adjustment is totally uncalled for.
Hoffman v Coles - The Psych from Brd 19 Women's QF8 of 8 - 8/12/19 Australia
Most players from the Antipodes will broadly support Nick's position. There is a cultural demographic at play in this thread. I think it was great bridge by N/S. If I had held the E/W hands I would probably have fallen into the same disastrous non-bidding that they ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
Good luck with this, Debbie. In the final of the World Open Pairs Championship in 2016, 2-board rounds, I was lucky to get any opposition system card onto the table, let alone handed to me. Despite complaining during and after the event, it became clear to me that the WBF ...
Is this X takeout or penalty?
I think takeout of spades is the more useful agreement. What were you going to lead against 1NT doubled? If partner has very little, as is quite likely against this auction, the defence may not be much fun. Actually, this hand is vaguely plausible for a takeout double anyway, planning ...
Do you play your 2!D opening as a weak 2?
I would make a general observation. If you play 2 to show some sort of strong hand, you are playing "2-handed bridge". (In this game, you are mainly concerned with your own partnership getting to the right contract.) If you play 2 to show some sort of weaker ...
Should this bid be reported to the director ?
Oh yes, I certainly say this sort of thing to my partner. And if he makes a poor bid (or what I perceive to be a poor bid), I also threaten to dump him. He's continually on his Last Chance.
When the Opps Interfere over Our 2NT Part II
Agreed. In this rare auction, I think you double with any hand other than one long and strong in their suit (in this last scenario, partner has nothing).
When the Opps Interfere over Our 2NT
Do overcalls of your 2NT opening happen all the time against you? I like to play negative and takeout doubles. If you can't apply basic principles such as that to rare auctions such as this, then I would suggest that you are not approaching your bidding agreements in an ...
Should this bid be reported to the director ?
I'd certainly report him, but to my current partner, with the comment: [i]"If you don't start showing a bit of tactical imagination like this, then this guy is my next partner."[/i]
Help settle an argument please
Absolutely. Reminds one of the Edgar Kaplan quote, along the lines of: "North's discard of a spade was very helpful and informative, telling South that the contract could no longer be beaten."
