Once threw the ♣A on the table when I was intending to open 1♣.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
John Newman's bidding problem: A864 9 AK854 943
Picture yourself on the other side of the table: 2 AJ8 QT762 AKT8 You Keycarded and partner rebid 5 (0 or 3). On a bad day they could have none (KJ KQ J QJ). Would you pass? I'm writing analysis of random hands for intermediate players, and many ...
John Newman's bidding problem: A864 9 AK854 943
I agree that it's a bidding problem that could have been avoided, but I think it's an interesting one that will arise for the intermediate players the hands are pitched at. I could simply delete or modify this hand, but I thought I'd instead see if someone ...
John Newman's bidding problem: A864 9 AK854 943
Perhaps you're right. Stand and say loudly "I object partner" then leave the table. But seriously, humour me. Is there a concensus on what to do with the 0/3 hand if the 3 response is your trump suit?
Was anyone at fault here?
West isn't showing an opening hand so much as avoiding missing game at IMPs. A leap to 4 with a pile of decent spades and a sharp card or two. I know lots of good players who would jump to game as West with: K87632 xxx (or short ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: K6 K8652 AJ9 K62
I thought this was a very tough problem. Passing gives up on these 4♡ contracts, but on the flipside it's a pretty small window to aim for isn't it? Given how reliably people open trash, you're hoping for some pretty useful cards. I suppose one upside is ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: K6 K8652 AJ9 K62
One advantage of bidding is that I don't have to be on lead.
John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ
The full hand: http://www.nswba.com.au/tourn/res.asp?yr=2019&dir=gnot&E=10&R=1&B=4&T=O I thought♧Q was the logical lead but when I asked a few experts they choose a heart, which is why I thought it's a good ...
John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ
The auction was different at each table. This auction led to the juiciest lead problem which is why I posted it. If you want a different, imaginary lead problem, it could conceivably have gone: W N E S P 1♦ P 1♥; P 3♦ P 3NT All pass
John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ
What do people think South's hand looks like?
John Newman's bidding problem: T43 A72 AJ52 K73
"They" follows "partner's hand". I didn't specify a second seat opening because there was no special agreement.
