ATB - missed game
Yehudit - what are you on about? If Oppo play 15-17, they won't be inviting when partner has 14, they'll rebid 1NT.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A98653 AQ62 Q4 8
Many people? Name 6 as Jim Hacker would say to Sir Humphrey.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A98653 AQ62 Q4 8
Probably reasonable spot to psyche a game try, bid a genuine 2H or punt 4S. 3C might well get them to lead a trump a lot, which might collect the queen, and they may get confused if I run trumps.

Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I would expect a good teacher to point out that if the bidding gets to a high level and your partner can't help you with more tricks, he's expected to double the opponents, and therefore some defense commensurate with the level at which that might occur is logical ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I'm not clear on your point 1, RF. Are you saying that a change in tournament regulations which bans something so mainstream that it's even taught to beginners is OK? Regarding point 2: Clearly most distributional FG hands that can control the auction will have 5 controls - that ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
You are completely wrong that they aren't qualified. They are mostly a smart group of strong bridge players. I've tried drafting things and committees are good at pointing out problems. Wordings can go round and round, until everyone gets fed up and agree on something that isn't ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I didn't think it was controversial suggesting beginners are taught to open 2C when they have "game in hand" without reference to having 5 controls. But OK: since you asked: it's in the standard English system file/it's on the Mr Bridge beginners card/it's what ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
It's a slightly loose definition, sure. But it's all I bother saying to a new partner - I've added no other requirement. After opening 2 our partnership is forced to double the opponents or bid on. That's the only "legislative" requirement I'd apply and it ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I don't think I'd miss game on your first example if partner passed a one level opening. No one teaches beginners to open 2C on that. More straw man arguments.
