Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: T8xx x K9xx KQxx
In the states 2 is never natural..... (joke)
ATB missed 24 HCP slam
N did not bid 4. Backpedaling after the agressivish 3 bid? I guess the question is whether S should bid 4 now or is 4 enough?
ATB missed 24 HCP slam
Apologies. I missed a bid in the sequence so none of this makes any sense.
The Death of Teams
Stu, having gold rush has an enormous effect. From our rather small but delightful Sunriver regional Tuesday Open Pairs - 21.0 Tables MPs A B C Names Score 13.56 1 10.17 2 7.63 3 Wednesday Open Pairs - 14.0 Tables / Based on 42 Tables MPs A B ...
1!S - 1N - 3!S - 4!H
I either hold Kxx, AKxx, xxxx, xx or void, KQ1098765, Kxx, Qx. You figure it out
Break In Tempo
While I wouldn't criticize 3 in a not tempo sensitive auction, it is far from clear. Assuming a poll establishes that pass is a logical alternative, the contract should be adjusted back to 2S (IMHO down 1)
Ian, if you bid 2 natural, and your partner responded 2, wouldn't you bid a lot of hearts?
e/w certainly should reach 4 on this auction - either directly over 2, or a raise of 2 to 4. N/S +100 based on their defense of the actual hand
How to start? 6 Hearts, but I can't see it on a Diamond lead
since it's a double dummy analysis, seeing the other two hands might help....
Why the focus on "active ethics" is the death of bridge
Sorry I disagree. No novice should ever claim against assholes.
