Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
Your post said "send a cold game packing". So my response addressed the cold game issue. I deemed it -in the spectrum of possible mixed raises- to be somewhat unlikely. I stand by that. If game is 50-50 there isn't any need to bid it at matchpoints. That's ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
If opener had 3334 or 2434 with a minimum he'd bid 3 but that is irrelevant. Responder is presumed to have a mixed raise and opener isn't required to describe his hand if he knows where he wants to play opposite that hand. He should not bid ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
N needs a perfecto of a mixed raise for game to be cold. To me it looks like he needs a major ace and 2nd round diamond control.
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
He assumed that N had a mixed raise and, in that case, he thought 3 was where he wanted to play. That's not an absurd view even if you disagree with it. For game to be cold partner needs a major suit ace and the diamond king or ...
Delayed action after the opponent's preempt
Auction 1 shows inadequate values for direct action. We play Leaping Michaels but for us it promises a good hand. The question is whether the delayed entry should be a 5-5 hand too weak to act directly or long spades too weak to overcall 3S. QJ10xx x KQJxx xx or ...
Delayed action after the opponent's preempt
Is there any action partner can take to show a 5-5 hand with spades and a minor? Would 4S show that hand or just long spades?
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
Well, if I had made a strong jump shift to 2 over my partner's 1 opening, and he rebid 3, my 3NT rebid would be non-forcing. It would show good spades and slam interest but if opener is minimum he is allowed to pass. To me ...
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
That hand is close to cold for 7NT opposite this South hand. I think it might be too good for a non-forcing 3NT. I would have rebid 3 with that.
Jon Green's lead problem: KQ75 8 Q982 J872
Hilarious. I guess I should have known they weren't going to end up in a diamond contract.
Jon Green's bidding problem: T7 6 AQ93 AKT732
3 would have shown a spade hand, so 3NT should be an attempt to show a spade hand in a more descriptive manner. I was North and playing partner's preferred methods in a fairly new partnership. This sequence hadn't come up before so we were winging it ...
