about me

If at times my comments seem annoying or offensive, at least consider the possibility that I am really just being playful.

Peter Gill's bidding problem: KJT5 93 85 KJT95
IF ? In my experience they tend to return to their nine-card fit instead of playing in a doubled artificial response.
Elke Weber's bidding problem: K8753 4 KJ985 J7
(a) RHO has not promised both minors. He may be balanced with 3235, or he may just have 6+ clubs. (b) Even if he has 4 diamonds (e.g. 3244), they are probably not terribly strong, and for this and other reasons -- for example, the diamonds sit under the overcaller ...

3S. We could easily be off four top tricks. Partner is going to realize there is a reason I doubled instead of competing right away to 3S, and it won't be because I hoped to be able to defend 3Cx. I am assuming here that we do not have ...

It is different on 2nd February. On that day anything goes.
Elke Weber's bidding problem: K8753 4 KJ985 J7
I want my partner to lead a diamond, consequently I will bid 2D. There must be something here that I am missing.
Peter Gill's bidding problem: KJT5 93 85 KJT95
Under the latest revision to the Laws, each bid in the bidding box can be used by at most one player at the table. (Green, red, and blue cards express calls, not bids).
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK3 A5 KT84 QJ74
I think that 2N should show both minors here, at least at these colors. If partner holds 2533 he can pass, since he knows I have the spades stopped, and if he somehow has a sixth heart (in an obviously weak suit, with an outside smattering) he can rebid them ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AQ62 AJT2 A2 T97
Double is quite clear as far as I am concerned, but just for the record I would certainly bid 1N before I would pass.
Jeff Aker's bidding problem: AQ32 AT42 Q Q754
Indeed it must be acknowledged that Pass could get a huge result here. If partner is about to pass 3S, we will certainly be concerned that we are on the verge of minimalizing our available plus. However, most of us prefer to give PARTNER "the benefit of the doubt", that ...
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: K64 A6 KQ52 K832
I get that you are bidding 3N, and fair play to you. But what bids are you voting against? 3S hardly precludes a 3N contract.
