Board 2 from the 02/19/2018 Common Game
East should bid 2NT to protect their King. Seems like a normal contract and result otherwise.
Board 27 from the 02/19/2018 Common Game
A negative double would show 4 hearts. Responding 2 should show 5 diamonds. Hiding support is generally a bad idea. If West raises diamonds, East cannot show their club support below 3NT. A 2 cue bid showing an invitational or better club raise. should have 5-card support. Cue ...
BW 2/1: Responder's Fourth Suit Bid
Shouldn't deny a stopper. Holding Axx bidding notrump could easily wrongside the contract.
ATB - Both hoping for better hands
Board 3 from the 01/29/2018 Common Game
What is the partnership agreement about the 3 jump overcall? If it was preemptive, West chose to jam the auction rather than have a constructive auction. Presumably, they did so to give the opponents the last guess. That strategy is risky, particularly opposite an unpassed hand. Here, West gave ...
Ask follow-up of 1S-3C
If you're playing a 1NT forcing response, there isn't much need for a special bid for a 3-card raise. If you're playing a 1NT semi-forcing response, opener may pass sometimes when you have a 3-card limit raise. This isn't necessarily bad. A notrump contract may score ...
Ask follow-up of 1S-3C
Does the 3-card raise promise shortness? Do you have a way to show an invitational response with long clubs?
Does this auction imply a club stopper?
3NT shows a stopper.
Board 16 from the 12/18/2017 Common Game
Not a fan of bypassing 3NT with a jump to 4. It does work well on this board.
Board 16 from the 12/18/2017 Common Game
South should open 1 and then jump to 3. North will try their luck in 3NT. 3NT is down 1 on the Queen lead, worse on a major suit lead and the 10 through declarer.
