An SMP question: when 1!C - 1 !S = 5+ !S, 8+ (unlimited)
Personally, I don't find the need to identify the range of responder's positive responses. Any positive response is game forcing, and once a game force has been established, there are lots of means available to locate the necessary assets to reach slam. Regardless of the range you are ...
Play this Suit Combination
Cool. Thanks!
Michael Barel's bidding problem: K76 KJT76 AQ943 ---
My initial reaction was 3, and with anyone I know that promises both unbid suits for a negative double, that would have been my choice. But many people feel that they only need to hold the unbid major - along with a few face-cards-to double, so I don't want ...
Phil Benamy's bidding problem: 32 K95 J875 QT83
I didn't think of it myself, but I think the 1S psych is cute.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: KT7 AQ74 K985 KJ
We can't let them steal this hand. We might have as many as 30 pts between us. I would have bid 2NT over the 2D bid immediately. If I do pass 2D, I think I would be forced to balance with 3NT.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AQ6432 9 A8 T983
I have been accused of wearing rose-colored glasses, but I am expecting 5 trumps and a club void in partner's hand from this bidding. If, as you say, 5C is down two on any reasonable defense, somebody was working that auction - I just don't know who.
David Chinn's bidding problem: KJ54 53 Q952 AJ5
I'm alone bidding 4NT in this problem. I hope partner can interpret this as signoff. NT is so important at MPs. I have no desire to bid 5D and 6D is out of the question, so 4NT should be to play.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: Q84 --- AKT96 AJ965
In all competitive situations, I believe in showing as much of my assets as I can as fast as I can. Overcalling 2D might work if you get the chance to bid 3C or even double later. But I prefer to show my interest in 2 suits right away. If ...
Elke Weber's bidding problem: KT874 7 A973 865
This is IMPs. Partner probably has at least a stiff club. Passing at IMPs is a losing proposition. Slam is likely opposite as little as Axxxxx Axxx Kxx void. And it is not unreasonable to believe partner has more than that.
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: JT8xxx 98xx Ax x
I have to respect partner's signoff. We are probably "trump poor," and partner could have bid 4H if was interested in another control from me. Chances are I have killed a lot of his high cards in the club suit.
