Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Yusuf Sohtorik's bidding problem: AQT76 8 AQT76 94
Is 3 non-forcing, a one-round force, or a game force?
Michel Beauchamp's bidding problem: A6543 AKJ9 94 AJ
Well, it's a better call than 2, for example, but why lie about your fifth heart when you can show your entire shape AND precisely define your point range AND show your spade stopper with one convenient call?
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: A2 A A932 JT9865
I'd add that if you don't know how to make the first bid, maybe you should try a simpler system.
It's About Time
Has anybody actually ever tried the chess clock idea at bridge?
Andrew Sinclair's bidding problem: AT98765432 A A A
2 then 3 then 4NT is the approximate plan
Winston Chang's bidding problem: T9 AT62 J853 KQ8
Depends on whether I open 1NT with balanced 15-17's and 5 spades or not.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: --- K742 AQJ986 KJ3
Well, if we start with the assumption that Partner isn't an idiot, we could conclude that Partner has something to say that couldn't be expressed by 4NT,5 or 5. 5 I guess would show the K, so we know that's not it. 5 ...
So What Do You Do With a Good Hand?
While KJx is clearly good defense, it is also likely to be good offense as well.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A76 AK5 KJ8543 Q
Maybe we should all play 1m-1M-3 as showing 6 cards in my suit and 3 in yours with 16-18, and then this problem won't come up anymore :)
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: --- Q86 AQT74 KJ963
Pard had xx/AJTxx/xx/AQxx and Declarer had Kxxxxx/xxx/KJxx/--. With both red aces onside, this went for a fat penalty for sure, but for the wrong side. -990.
