Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 87 T63 K8 QT7652
3 should show 3cards, since with 4cards I would be inclined to raise 2 directly after the 3 bid. Partner is well placed to make further decisions.
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit
Frances - I agree with your comment that this was a faulty poll. However, at least 9 (at time of writing) of the voters "liked" Ed Reppert's post indicating 1st or 2nd round control. I'm fairly comfortable with my 'majority of posters' statement and conclusion - as anyone who wanted ...
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit
The reason I posted this was simply to ascertain whether the majority of posters would expect a diamond control, or whether the 4 bid was a general slam try. My thoughts/concerns were that there was no consensus on what 4 would show, and that it could be ...
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: QJ52 --- QJT9652 K3
Playing 4card majors and canapé, I can't tell you how often we've gotten a top board playing in a 44 major fit when the opponents are not aware of the hidden 'long minor' that ultimately sets up. Edited to add a recent example hand... [url]http://www.bridgebase ...
You Never Know What Might Happen
With standard count, I've always advocated low with odd, and with even, a high enough card to not look low. I fail to see with J732, what leading the 3 does for partner. And with 6 cards, it is even more important to lead an obviously NOT low card.
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit
This essentially is the crux of my question: 1) general slam try in clubs 2) slam try clubs, cue in diamonds Which one does the majority of posters believe is the more common?
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit
My mistake. The reason that 2nd round was eliminated is that in the context of the hand in this specific auction (not shown, unfortunately), partner is marked with a singleton (in my opinion), and only a 1st round control is relevant. My intent was control, non-control, or general. It appears ...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: AK5 AJT97 742 Q7
That presumes that they play a weak 2. Not many do... I expect 6 diamonds for the passed hand overcall. EDIT: And certainly his/her partner would raise to 3 on 9 trump.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: AK5 AJT97 742 Q7
Good question - what does a 4level cue of an opponent's suit mean? Perhaps a poll would make sense.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: AK5 AJT97 742 Q7
And have an opening hand worth a 'free' 3 bid - no way. Most posters are missing this inference. I need to have a stronger hand for the 3 bid (and 4 continuation) than a simple opening - my Qxx Qx x AKxxxxx is an absolute minimum for this ...
