Taking Advantage of UI?
Barry, You argue as follows: "The double told him that clubs are running into a bad break. They might be in a 4-3 fit with a 5-1 (or worse) break. So by process of eliimination, he guessed to bid 5♥, hoping that partner's shape is something like 2=4 ...
Is this X takeout or penalty?
p.s., With your actual hand, I would have overcalled 1NT! Ugly, yes, and I won't be happy if partner transfers me to spades, but I can't stand to pass with so much strength.
Is this X takeout or penalty?
I would think your double was T/O, showing hearts and clubs, probably with 2-4-3-4 or 2-4-2-5 shape. You couldn't double the first time because you only have a doubleton spade, but now that the opponents have bid spades, the double fits. You could play the double as penalty ...
Another huge finish for 15-year old Finn Kolesnik
Very impressive!
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
Debbie, I strongly agree with you on this one. My experience has been similar to yours. Most of the time when I play against pros, I have to ask for their C/C, and one of them usually ends up removing it from his pocket. IMO, your proposal is a ...
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
Mike, I agree that you cannot legally open a "strong" 2C with AKQxxxxxx and out. I never suggested you can.
Anyone for going back to the old Fall schedule or moving the Reisinger to the first weekend of the tournament?
Brian, I generally like your idea, but I have a question. Why start with the Blues and end with the Reisinger, instead of doing it the other way around? Whichever of those two events ends up on the final weekend loses a little prestige, since the four Soloway finalists can ...
Would you find this play?
Paul, your partner made a very nice play that most defenders would not find. However, Ken is right that it risked giving away an overtrick if declarer had QJxxx (without the 10). When trying to maximize the number of tricks in this suit, the normal, correct way to play Ax ...
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
But Nigel, if they both thought 4NT was quantitative, then over the 5H response showing 2 Aces, isn't the normal signoff bid 5S (asking partner to bid 5NT)? In that auction, a direct 5NT follow-up (over 5H) normally asks for kings, doesn't it? Also, their 1NT range is ...
Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Ilya, many Precision pairs play that 1C is 16+ unbalanced or 17+ balanced. This pair clearly falls into that camp, because their 1NT range is 15-16.
