Help Me Understand "Source of Tricks" Responses to Jacoby 2NT
Best to have a good but not solid suit which if partner has the filler, it becomes gold. If you hold AKQJT and show it, partner won’t be thrilled, so you need not show it!
XYZ Problem Hand
1-1-1NT-3 = 5-4 or 5-5 invitation 1-1-1NT-2-2-3 = 4-5 invitation (denies a 5th spade) The slow route showing only a four card major, the immediate jump showing five cards in responder's major. The same holds true if responder bids 3 instead of ...
XYZ Problem Hand
I know many or most use the immediate jump as game forcing (and likely slam interest). But I learned it as Richard describes - slow denies 5th card in responder's first suit, jump promises 5th card in responder's first suit. With 3 invitational and passable in both auctions.
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Marshall, I realize you SHOULD have a bit better than an 8-loser hand to have a MINOR suit invitation. But my opponents may not (usually don't) realize that.
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Marshall, you are treating Q5432 the same as QJT98. Adjusting for extra queens compared to aces is fine - in general. BUT - with the a queen having supporting honors, things change. QJx as 2 1/2 losers and KQx as 1 1/2 losers are other examples where for those holdings ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Marshall, I make adjustments for losing trick count, although my opponents may not. One local player I know consistently considers Qxx Qxx Qxx Qxxx as 8 losers, despite my trying to educate him. But how are you determining 8 1/2 losers for the hand 9xx x Kxxx QJTxx above ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
An important question for opponents to ask is "how do you determine if a hand is invitational?". In the last five to ten years, I am seeing more and more opponents obsessed with losing trick count calling nearly all eight loser hands "invitational" that look very weak with no defense ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
As has been mentioned by others and myself previously, the description "natural and less than invitational" is simple, short, and covers it completely (if that was their agreement).
Muppet With Major 4=6
Transfer to 3 and then bidding 3, if it is to show 5-5, would be slammish. The same is true in standard Stayman auctions. But playing Muppet, playing that as 4=5 majors is reasonable. Then the only problem child is the 5=4 majors hand which can ...
How do you like to play 2!D here?
So much depends on how light (in major suit length and high cards) a partnership might be to bid 2 Michaels immediately over 1. If you'd bid 2 immediately on nearly any excuse, there will be almost no hands where you'd want to show the ...
