No Open World Championships Until 2024?
Brian: Saying Wimbledon is not a World Championship is, to me, pretty silly. Anything where all the best players in the world play is, to me a World Championship. It seems to me a better argument that an event where some players CANNOT compete (because their country has a limited ...
Forcing?
Timo: I havent actually read all your comment but I know what my thought is. "It's all about frequency". I think it's not. I think it's all about the fact that, when you defend their making game doubled you lose a 'solid' 5 imps (or more if ...
No Open World Championships Until 2024?
Each type of World Championship (Bermuda Bowl, Olympiad, Rosenblum - sorry that I refuse to get with the program and call them anything else) is 'special' in its own way. I completely agree with Christina. I think the best way to handle this is to say there was no Olympiad in ...
Forcing?
Maybe we're down 3 in 5. Maybe opponents have a slam. Maybe not a great scenario for a Forcing pass.
Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: T632 T54 J85 J98
Axx, AKxx, Q10xxx, A. A gamble. When I pass, I'm hoping partner has a doubleton club.
Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: T632 T54 J85 J98
Unless East is really smart, he doesn't have 6-card - he passed over 1N doubled. Partner doesn't rate to have 4-card . Even if partner is 2-4-5=1, defending might survive. I pass and lead a heart. If partner has stiff A, maybe the 4th can promote ...
Kayden Ge's bidding problem: AK4 A52 AKT875 4
When partner bids the next suit up (as here) then there are problems in Standard that can't be properly solved without artificiality. Here, the best thing to do is probably 2. If you play that partner does not bid a major over thre double without 5-card or good ...
Samuel Pahk's lead problem: 2 KJ943 73 KJT82
Those are easy questions to ask, but difficult to answer. In a 'reliable' game, I'd put double last. Maybe just realize there are some things where strong opinions don't belong.
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: AQ Q876 AQ A9843
Some methods allow you to find out if partner has 3. Playing that way, you can play 4 facing 3, and 3N facing a doubleton.
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: AQ Q876 AQ A9843
4. I can't offer a choice of games showing 6-card . For this reason, I don't rebid 2N with a singleton.
