Zachary Yan's bidding problem: AQ86532 74 3 KJ2
I was once advised that the best time to psyche is when you are vul vs not. Wonder if North got the same advise.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AJ5 Q86432 KT9 3
I don't think 3 is an underbid. I would have liked to repeat my hearts but as you said, it is too good for 2 and the suit is awful for 3. 3 should show invitational or almost invitational values and that is what I ...
High level negative double
The one thing I know I'm not doing is making a negative double with North's hand. South is just resulting.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: Q5 A7 AQJ3 K7632
An interesting hand with 3 poor choices, yet you do have to make a choice. Awfully strong for a pass, Terrible suit to bid on the 2 level, and a questional stopper for 1NT. Looks like a goood problem.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: J9xx J AKTx 98xx
ok what is your upper strength limit for 1. Mine is 8 evaluated points and here I think I have 10/11 evaluated points.
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: AKQ5 AJ973 7 A85
I am having a problem trying to figure out why any other bid but 2 makes sense
Liam Milne's bidding problem: KQJT6 Q9 9 AQ743
Not strong enough to bid again. If you do, partner will play you for more than you have.
Takeout Doubler's Second Bid RHO passes
In a sense yes. I like it to be a LOTT bid but that is a very small minority. Most like it to have something extra and that was the purpose of the poll, to find out how much extra most players wanted. Also, it is becoming a lot more ...
Takeout Doubler's Second Bid RHO rebids suit
The answers are exactly as Jeff Rubens wrote them. I very much doubt he meant the phrase "a Queen above" to mean exactly 2 High Card Points, but meant it as a general evaluation method that would take in other factors such as distribution, intermediates and any other factors you ...
Takeout Doubler's Second Bid RHO rebids suit
See my post for the other evaluation when opener passes. No one is claiming that you only count High Card Points. Distribution and other factors obviously come in to play. I really think Richard that your criticism is misplaced.
