Platinum Pairs, 11 tricks "cold" after either major suit lead
What were the actual matchpoint scores for 9, 10 and 11Ts. I’m assuming that Zia was allowed 10 tricks (but not 11) instead of 9?
How do you play this 3!s bid?
Whats even more interesting is if opener is 2=4=4=3 with no club stopper and “punts” with 4D. Ifvyou have 4=3=4=2 do you bid 5D, 4H or possibly an antisystemic pass? Could/should you pass 4D with a 4=2=4=3 10 count. Never ...
How do you play this 3!s bid?
Agree with David and others. Trying to land on a dime at 3level is impractical. So 4s and gamegoing values.
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: KT93 Q643 JT3 Q4
And for those who vociferously complain about those who convert “obvious” 2-3 choice bidding problems into multifaceted polls, think how much more information could be gleaned by finding out what fraction of the 3H raisers would have passed 1NT and what fraction of the passers would have gambled Stayman in ...
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: KT93 Q643 JT3 Q4
Dave: So would I, but given the Stayman choice, I really don’t know what is percentage at matchpoints (P ir raise). The BW field seems to be saying”well you got lucky to get into hearts instead of going minus in 2NT so be happy. “ This probably would have ...
Exclusion Blackwood at 5 level
Is 6H supposed to be a good contract? Can’t bethat much over 50%, requiring 3-2 breaks in both majors?
David Parsons's bidding problem: K6 KJ8652 Q4 J85
I think you are saying that in second seat this is a stylistic matter between a 1H and 2H overcall, but once partner is a passed hand you may as well “get your hand off your chest” in one shot, and just bid 2H, then subside. IMO a good general ...
Leonard Helfgott's lead problem: Q963 KT82 Q4 K98
I’m not sure whether BW uses 4Th best or 3Rd and low, so to me S6 and S3 are equivalent.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: A872 QJ95 J62 A4
Craig: Great call. Opener’s actual hand was KQJxx Kx Kxx xxx. Despite the good spades, an aceless 5332 12 count doesnt seem an acceptance. And while 4S isnt cold due to the diamond suit, just about everyone made it.
How to bid 6!H (or 7!H if you like)
Wow. Danielson!! I know someone who used to play that with Bob, Ill ask him!
