Board 12 Bermuda Bowl 12/7/2019
A lot of stunning underbidding on this deal. As the saying goes, an 8-Card suit is meant to be trumps! I wouldn’t care to criticize players in the Bermuda Bowl, especially given that I’ve never been there myself, but I do prefer South’s action at our table ...
Board 15 from July 16 matches
East-West can make 8 tricks in spades but sold to 2D without putting up a fight st out table. Our auction 1D p 1H 2C 2D p p p Who should be bidding, and what?
Board 4, 16th July
I’m not recommending my 3D call. Preempts work, so I get a bit too exuberant sometimes. This one worked. They often do. But it’s a bad bid. One of the paradoxes of bridge Is that it encourages bad bidding because bad bids often work.
Board 4, 16th July
Yes, I certainly would consider passing the double of 3D. it. It’s a dangerous pass because partner is usually signing off in 3H with a weakfish hand.
Board 10, July 16th, Netherlands vs Norway
A lot of pairs play pretty sound jump over calls with they’re Vul. At unfavorable I like to play that they are based on loser-count and can be up to 14-15 hcp’s. But, when partner is unlimited you need tight limits on your preempts. It doesn’t matter ...

I completely agree, Barb. Wide-ranged jump over calls facing a passed hand are very effective.
Board 13, 16th July
Does one bad result prove that your Multi wasn't a great bid? Maybe it proves that Paul is a great declarer! :) Lead a club and you'll be crowing! :) Did others open the North hand? I didn't. (Red colors terrify me.) Surprisingly, Rena and Giselle stopped in 3S ...
Board 4, 16th July
One of my favorite toys came up on this deal. I overcalled 3D as north, which gave West a problem (that's the idea!). Our opponent solved it by bidding 4D - a big overbid. The cue needs to be slammish. Following basic principles of letting a preempt push you one ...

Certainly East should invite - but East's acceptance is questionable. There are a lot of negatives in that little 12-count. 2D could be a much better hand, less limited than a 1NT or 2H rebid; so responder strains to invite in this sort of sequence. Anyone NOT get to game?
Board 10, July 16th, Netherlands vs Norway
Yes, I understand your concern. A weak jump suggests it's not our hand, and it could be brutal if there's no fit. But then partner might have bid 1D with a major, and might have avoided 2D with 3361 because of the major-suit support. So singleton club is ...
