Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
Paul M, that sounds like the one I read in an Eddie Kantar book, I believe it might have been playing the queen instead of jack against a 3NT contract, perhaps?
Showing both majors over 1NT - 2!C
I agree with Craig: 1NT-2-2-2 I thought was pretty much "standard" these days to show exactly four spades and invitational values. This tends to assume a partnership agreement that you play transfers and that opener shows hearts before spades with both - but you don't need that ...
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
I agree on the three honor playing the top of the sequence - but only not in third seat - typically when playing in second seat or sometimes in fourth seat to clarify a holding to partner.
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
Before weighted averages were allowed (which was true not that long ago in ACBL land), this would probably result in 6 making with an overtrick for both sides. (I don't think the chance that 7 would be bid to be high enough under the old law to ...
Bud Hinckley's bidding problem: KQ63 J4 QJT2 AJ9
This had nothing to do with responder's first bid. As a panelist on the ACBL District 8 Advocate Solvers Forum bidding contest who typically scores very well, this was the first problem in the most recent contest. And the only problem that spoiled a near perfect score on the ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: JT932 --- 85 KQJ863
I concur wholeheartedly on 4 over 3. You "know" they are bidding 4 next.
Bud Hinckley's bidding problem: KQ63 J4 QJT2 AJ9
Ooops - sorry, John - correction made.
Always show a 4-card spade in Precision (or bypass) after 1!D-1!H
Playing standard, I have rebid 1 on a 3-bagger (risking responder passing with 3 spades and 4 to 5 HCP) with some 3=1=4=5 hands after 1-1-? It's less likely to happen after a 1 opening with minors switched. (I seldom open 1 ...
GNT Format: Going Forward
I'd prefer starting the day BEFORE a regional, and perhaps you can reduce the field to only TWO teams for the second day. That way, only two teams would be inconvenienced not playing the first day of the regional.
GNT Format: Going Forward
Peg, Bob? I never said to hold it on days of the regional. I suggested potentially holding it the two days before (or you could do it after) the regional.
