Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What do you call a 9-card suit?
No, my RHO overcalled, and I leap to 6, down one doubled, which was par, iirc.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I have seen at least 2 boards where I thought evidence was conclusive from one hand. On the first, Dealer opened 1 heart, and rebid 2 hearts when my 2 club overcall came back to him. His partner corrected to 2 spades holding Jxxx, xx in the majors. Openers majors ...
The best hand you ever had and never bid
I had a strong 2 club opener with AKJ9xx of spades and a void in clubs and saw (1)-3-P-?
What do you call a 9-card suit?
Last time I held a 9 card suit, I called it support, partner had the other 4 in a natural 1 diamond opening..
What are your pet peeves?
People who SNAP their cards, especially when taking the setting trick...
10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
Closest I ever came was that my seat held a 10 card suit. But this was in the time when the players duplicated the hands, and I just got to put the cards in the box.
10 card Solid or almost solid suits. I was West and saw P/P/P/7. I seriously considered saving in 7, but I thought there was a fair chance that the obvious trump lead would set it. I would have been right to pass ...
Department of Large Penalties
Unlucky that the AKQJ of trump were offside...or partner revoked.
Necessary Shift
While I agree the goal on these hands is to get them to the 3 level, and bidding with both minors is dangerous, it wins if we take at least 10 tricks, not exactly 10 tricks, they are making 9 tricks in their contract. I admit this is unlikely..
How would you bid this using your favourite system
If you are opening all balanced 11's...This hand clearly has enough to show more than a single raise. The 9th trump makes a huge difference opposite all but partner's 5332s...
