Responding to 1!d Opener Playing 2/1
If you might want to play in a long club suit, it's silly not to bid it. Partner and I got to a really silly contract after the following start. 1 1 2 3. She was 4-6 in the blacks, but watch what happened.. 3 ...
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
Then I could have been offering 200. I missed a good vul v not save last week that I might have found if my student showed her hand. Sometimes we are bidding based on shape.
Does 2!d response to 1M ideally promise 5 !ds?
Hearts promises 5, clubs promises 3, so occasionally you have to bid a 4 card diamond suit. 3442 would be the problem shape over a 1 opener. 4342 over a 1 opener. I briefly tried bidding 2 on a doubleton, but players use two way bids depending ...
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
Yeah, supporting your point... not only might have it been a stretch for game, it might have been beyond stretching. 6 might not only be down, it might be down more than their game. On some auctions, where you know you have a good save so long as it ...
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
5 could have been offering 500 in the hopes the opps would take it rather than 650.
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
If you are beating 5 11 tricks, one of you will probably know what to do. Not forcing does not prevent a doulbe.
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
No. The overcalling side needs to find a Q-bid to create a force.
What is Normal?
Claiming introduces the possibility of a communications error, which is far more likely than an actual play error. To say "Just don't make a communications error" fairly obviously misses that humans error when given a chance. Pretty easy against anal opponents, to eliminate this error by never claiming until ...
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Respectfully Henrik, you are wrong. Just because you choose to blame both parties, does not mean they both contributed. Just because the guilty side refuses to accept responsibility does not mean there is no guilty side. Your whole attitude caused a serious rift in bridge a few years back when ...
This is a bit labirintic for me
I could go either way on this one(1 or 2) . Since I play kokish, I'd have to be prepared for 2 2 2 2 3 = where 3 shows hearts and clubs (Grue switch after Kokish). I would not treat the ...
