1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
We now have a way to handle this as well, though opener can short-circuit it if holding 6 spades. For you, does opener break the transfer when holding 6 spades?
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Thanks, David. You and Craig have me nearly on board. Can you tell me a bit more about the 1H-1S-2R-2S forcing school? What's the invite with 6 spades and what's the GF? Does 2S show 6 for you? (I think I can deal with 5-5s another way. It ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
If I may press you on this (I'm genuinely curious), will you really pass 1H with a heart single, a spade 6-bagger, and a 3-count? And if not, what will you bid with it? 2, widening the range, or the 1 that denies you the possibility of ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Thanks for the example hand, David. Do you have a solution to my question about making the 1 - 2 bid so wide-ranging?
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Interesting link. Thanks, Steve. I believe that Gazzilli largely takes care of the Sparts problem for us, but this is interesting to consider. We play lots of fit bids, so that came to mind as a possible use, too, but doesn't seem so necessary here. Sub-invitational non-fit would work ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Interesting (if I cleared the 6 spade sub-invites out with this, I could show the 5-5s using the bid they would have taken). But how wide a range would this have? If I had 6 spades and short hearts, I might try to improve the contract with very, very little ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
Following up now on the question as to whether/when to pull a weak 2 response to Gazzilli. I grouped the main potential 2 responses (5 hearts with short spades, 6 hearts with <3 spades, and the 1=4=5=3), and 2 makes a little less ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
I ran the stronger hands: 8-9 HCP with 1=4=5=3 or 1=5=5=2 shape. 1=4=5=3 unsurprisingly continues to be a problem holding, and the three suit contracts (2, 3 and 3) that are in the running are still close to ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
Interesting points on the 2 contract. It might be 4-2, depending on below, but if it's 4-3, that's almost certainly our best spot. Wrt when opener pulls and what it shows, this is a complicated decision tree, especially since you and I have different agreements that establish ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
Thanks, John. I appreciate your point that some contracts are likely to be easier to defend than others, and especially with the DD results essentially a toss-up, even a small declarer advantage would be relevant. Would you argue that 3 would be equally hard to defend? For 2 ...
