"Hottest" Debates Among Bridge Experts Today?
This is one of those fundamental points, I demonstrated poor judgment by bidding 1-(p)-1-(p)-1N on, as opener. Opener doesn't get to use XYZ or NMF. It is a choice responder makes. If his hand is not an invitational hand or better, there is ...
"Hottest" Debates Among Bridge Experts Today?
1) My understanding is never. Bidding went 1-(p)-1-(p) and I bid 1NT (We play XYNT) and bidding continued 2-(p)-2-(p)-p-(p) Lesson learnt! Answer is never!
XYZ question
1-(p)-1-(p)-1-(p)-3 :4+ :4 gf good distrn others play :top2/3 Assume then this sequence is used by you to show :top2/3 rather than a distributional game-forcing raise. I would rather show unspecified shortness this way ...
XYZ question
I also have in my notes: 1-(p)-1-(p)-1-(p)-2-(p)-2-(p)-2 :5+ mild to normal game invite Art, in general I agree with you - invitational sequences should not pass the 2 level (unless they are safe to ...
XYZ question
Here is what my notes have: 1-(p)-1-(p)-1-(p)-3 :6+ gf :good strongest rebid in 1-(p)-1-(p)-1-(p)-2-(p)-2-(p)-3 :6+ strong game try based on ...
Follow up to XYZ invite sequence
Hi Bilal, By XYZ definition 2S is invitational in the following sequence: 1m-1;1N-2;2-2 2N by opener is simply a preference bid. Stephen that is what should have been on the options list. The real quick is when do you pass 2 and when ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
The problem is the standard convention card has: Minor Suit Openings Double Raise and After Overcall choices as: i) Force ii) Inv. iii) Weak There is no constructive choice. If you consider weak to be hcp:3-5(6) and constructive to be hcp:7-9 that would be the most accurate ...
Are You Serious?
So the following sequence is natural according to BWS criteria: 1-(p)-2-(p)-2N-(p)-3-(p)-3N even though everyone plays it as a slam try instead. And the following sequence depends on whether 3 establishes an eight card fit or not: 1- ...
3 level matchpoint decision
Honestly, I'd be happy that they didn't bid game. The Qx of Diamonds is almost worthless. Not sure if the Kx of Clubs will help secure a trick. On the plus side hearts are breaking well for them, and they have defensive tricks in spades.
Play or Defend 3NT
Yeah that makes sense. Attack spades to cut communications between EW, before attacking diamonds.
