Mathematically, when should you make a game try (and which one)?
Steve: Expanding the LTC concept a little more, I will not make a G/T without a GOOD 6-loser hand. You can increase the reasonableness of a G/T by using a little more science. (I use Kokish tries, which show either a short suit OR ask partner to bid ...
Suit Quality for 1C-1S-4C (forcing Spade raise)
Len: I chose not to vote, as not only do I agree with Craig, but partnership style has a great deal to do with a response. As an analogy, after 1M-2nt (forcing raise), I am inclined NOT to bid 4m with all of my points in the 2 suits (say ...
After 2!h double negative to 2!c
Paul: Good question -- I noticed that Georgiana has NOT responded. I happen to like a 2h dbl neg to Kokish (as originally devised by Eric), which I play with my best partnerships. We play it denies a 1/2 trick (i.e., no King, or no hand with QJx and ...
Slow double - should I pull anyway?
I think the problem here is that partner did not have his x, since an invitational heart hand could include a multitude of hand types, and partner had a poor opening hand. "In the old days" (perhaps 15-20 yrs ago), slow doubles (at a national level) were often ruled by ...
Many yrs. ago, AT MP'S (only), the theory was that the smaller (i.e., 3-4.5 hcp or less) was the 4th chair, the more important it was for him to double, since the 2nd chair had an opening hand behind declarer. (I think this was put forward by ...
Going for the Overtrick at Matchpoints
Len: I am not so sure I agree with Kit on this occasion. The hand is extremely "suit-oriented", and lacks 3 spades; therefore, I believe only a few pairs in a strong field would open 1n with these cards. (As an aside, to open the hand 1n is also is ...
Common Game (afternoon) January 12
Georgiana: I have seen a side hold all 13 cards in suit a few times. The most interesting one came many years ago, when I played in the opening session of the NABC Imp pairs. After a spirited competitive auction, I put my partner in 5c (she had bid them ...
Several Possibilities- Common Game Yesterday Bd. 25
Len: I agree: RKC is a poor crutch here. Besides, if partner is actually void in spades, a grand is not beyond the pale. I would make an Italian Blue team style 4c bid.
Ripped Off
Steve: Our district is one of the ones in the pilot program for Purple pass. There is currently no surcharge for a credit card pymt., but my understanding is that if it is implemented, there will be an additional charge to reflect the fee charge by the credit/debit card ...
Ripped Off
I hate to say this, but leaving cash unattended shows a lack of common sense, IRRESPECTIVE of the circumstances. What is actually scarier for Tournament Chairs or Unit treasurers, many of whom are over 70, is that after a sectional, once the Tournament concludes, the ACBL Director hands over the ...
