What has partner got?
Kickback?
How forcing is 1!C - (2!H) - 3!H?
Partnership agreement. Forcing - we play this as asking for a heart stopper. Opener has a long club suit. 3N or else 4...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: T98 J8 JT9874 42
Can't see this as penalty - I have too many spades. And I have absolutely no defense. 3N might be passed out for a big minus. 4 is our safest landing spot.
Underleading aces.
The only time I would consider under-leading an Ace in a trump contract is when I have a very strong belief that: a) the K is with LHO (perhaps s/he opened a strong 1N, 2N or 2C and RHO is declarer; or RHO pre-empted), I have AQJ(x...), and ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 3 AK653 KJ76 A63
Dreadful in IMPs perhaps, but in MP, making 8 tricks in notrump beats making 8 tricks in spades. It’s critical that dummy have outside entries, hence my comment on spade quality. Crappy spades, then notrump plays better...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 3 AK653 KJ76 A63
Experience. I had virtually the same hand yesterday (except I had a spade void) - made 3N and the room goes down in 4. Notrump plays remarkably well with singletons opposite each other, provided you have good communication in the other two suits. This is what I remember: ATxxxx x ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 3 AK653 KJ76 A63
Damn iPhone, can’t correct misfingering. Meant 2N, expecting partner to bid 3N with 10.
Which version of Precision?
Richard - I must disagree with you on 1M-1N ART GF being illegal. See my post above. My interpretation of the GCC was simply that 1N was not allowed to be GI+ - as opposed to GF. Since ANY ART GF was specifically allowed, we were allowed to play 1N as a ...
Which version of Precision?
Randy - Either way, they don't resemble 'standard' Meckwell, particularly philosophically.
Which version of Precision?
AFAIK, Meckwell (NOT lite) uses the following structure to 1: 1 = 0-7 1 = either 8+, 5+, or 11-13 balanced 1 = 8+, 5+ 1N = 8+, 5+ clubs unbalanced 2 = 8+, 5+ diamonds unbalanced 2 = 8-10 balanced 2 = 14+ balanced 2 and ...
