To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
Actually with AT9x or AT8x or A98x of hearts, a HEART shift might be required to beat it lol. Catch your partner with the T or 9 or the 8 and they can get in with the diamond and drive the heart before the club is setup. If they try ...
To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
I guess even with ATxx of hearts, a spade shift does not beat it. They can play a diamond immediately and then run spades at you if they are 5233. If you pitch down to 3 hearts, you cant set up a heart trick and if you don't you ...
To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
It might be one of those things where you have to be a very good player to even consider not playing a club and doing something like a spade to mess up entries. To normal people a club is your only chance since you can count 9 tricks. A spade ...
Playing 2NT as Spiral, what does a direct 3NT mean?
Yeah absolutely Barry. I would assume it was a stiff spade also. I just think it's not a great agreement since it leaves you no room, but it's the most "natural" way to approach it. Personally I'd rather be able to bid 3N with a stiff spade ...
To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
So eventually he realized playing a spade is nullo? I assume he realized playing a heart and a diamond are nullo. That leaves... I mean I know some people think faster or differently than others but it is really not that hard to see that a club beats it when ...
To the Bulletin Office or Anti Cheating Committee?
15 seconds to shift to a club is rather embarrassingly slow imo, as long as you can count to 9 (tricks) and count to 14 (points) lol. I bet Joe Grue or Helgemo shifts to a club in 1 second. Dunno why this hand would cause anyone to be suspicious ...
Playing 2NT as Spiral, what does a direct 3NT mean?
See my post downthread frances. I used to play what you did but found 2N=4 card raise and natural with 3 card raises to be quite good. It is better for information leakage, room on slam hands, and rightsiding. I think it is quite good. Depending on whether you ...
Playing 2NT as Spiral, what does a direct 3NT mean?
I know nobody will agree with me but if your responses to 2N are such that you sometimes leak info/let them make lead directing doubles, I think its quite reasonable to play 3N says pass with a 3 card raise and bid 4H with a 4 card raise to ...
Playing 2NT as Spiral, what does a direct 3NT mean?
Meh, if 2N is your ask you need a way to show a spade splinter. Using 3N as that is fairly reasonable, especially if your opening bid was 1D not 1C. I do think being able to show short spades is very important, and ideally not by bidding 4D/4H ...
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
How about we all just be reasonable? -A lot of people are new to online bridge and/or elderly. Yes, they should click alert and then bid. Sometimes they fail to, some people bid then click on their bid to write out their explanation. Some write out their explanation before ...
