Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: T5 A9765 AJ T986
Double. I did not double 2, limiting my diamond length, and I have two red aces on this bidding, after partner redoubled my 1NT! I wonder if we are all playing with the same deck...
Sathya Bettadapura's bidding problem: AJ432 K5 KQ54 A6
The auction 1-forcing 1N-2m-2S is commonly used for hands with ~6-9 hcp and 2-card support, or even weaker hands with 3-card support,... while playing constructive raises, 3-card support with 6-7 hcp must be included in the forcing 1NT response. So I find Sathya's comment in agreement with my ...
Duane Christensen's bidding problem: AKJx AKQxx --- ATxx
Doubling again keeps both spades and clubs in the picture. Then possibly bidding hearts on the next round may enable partner to pick the right spot. {edited below} OOPS! Misread auction before coffee. Change my bid to 3. I don't play 2 forcing, and an 8-card heart ...
Jarek Langer's bidding problem: AQ96532 Q KQJ6 7
1. I am supposed to show discipline by only overcalling 1, then later communicate I have a good hand to go along with my extra-long spades. (More than a mere preempt.) I think I will abide by that general agreement here because of the relatively weak spades, and ...
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: K4 8 AJT63 KJ932
3. But we may not always be able to get back to 3NT when that is the best matchpoint score...
Out of the Books
East and South were the two straight men, bidding 1-(2) after two initial passes by West and North, but the two passed hands quickly took over the bidding. "Once you pass, you can bid all you want!" 3 and 3NT were reasonable (but imaginative) actions, while ...
Does Anybody Know why the Official Result has not been Posted in the Donn-Fleisher Match?
The explanation by West in committee was that he thought he had three keycards, and that his 5 did show zero or three.
Does Anybody Know why the Official Result has not been Posted in the Donn-Fleisher Match?
The explanation given by West in committee was not that he responded in clubs, but that he mistakenly showed 3 keycards for spades. This creates totally different analysis than mistakenly responding for clubs (although it was logical with information known at the time of writing). An interesting point by West ...
Does Anybody Know why the Official Result has not been Posted in the Donn-Fleisher Match?
Interesting that during the bidding, Huub actually wrote an note to his screenmate Brad that Curtis had not responded correctly to KC. This has nothing to do with the ruling, but good at-the-table color by the viewgraph operator, also repeating jokes by the participants, and saying "Everyone laughed."
Does Anybody Know why the Official Result has not been Posted in the Donn-Fleisher Match?
Agree that the auction itself reveals that 4NT was KC for spades, then very likely contains the A, AK, K,--Clear bridge logic at this level should allow bidding over 5 regardless of the hesitation, but shouldn't be allowed to disregard KQ instead of the ace. These "hesitation ...
