Hoffman v Coles - The Psych from Brd 19 Women's QF8 of 8 - 8/12/19 Australia
If N/S do play a 3 bid as meaning something natural and strong, I agree they should disclose that information in the alert+explanation of the 2 response. My point was more that "some forcing auctions are different to others." I don't see how you can ...
Hoffman v Coles - The Psych from Brd 19 Women's QF8 of 8 - 8/12/19 Australia
Like Roger Pewick, I find a lot of comments on this thread scary. Don't you guys want to know how North responds to 2 in a little more depth before jumping to conclusions? Don't you want to know some stuff about partnership history? If North had a ...
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
Paul, I think your post should be removed if your assertions about Graham's behaviour are false, which seems to be a strong possibility. No, I don't like the whole idea of someone calling the director about this hand. But it sounds as though you couldn't even get ...
Restricted choice?
Mentally I had completely discounted a 2542 with good diamonds and a top heart honour. In retrospect, that was clearly an overbid by me. I still think it is ridiculous to open 1 on xx, K7532, AQJx, QJ or similar, but it could certainly happen. (A 1 on ...
Awesome result Liam and Andy :)
Restricted choice?
Agreed. That's why I don't think catering for 2=5=4=2 should factor into the play decision.
Restricted choice?
I don't think playing for this layout is a good reason to drop an extra undertrick. However, gaining the extra overtrick might be a good enough reason to play this way. Anyway, I would find the opening lead extra strange when having a five card suit to develop with ...
Restricted choice?
This is hard. East certainly holds either the A or the Q or both. West would never lead a diamond from AQ102 or similar. With AJ and AK, no red-blooded defender would play the J at trick one. It'd be the fastest heart switch in history with that dummy ...
Restricted choice?
That would give West something like 3442 opposite a 2+ 1 opening - unlikely to bid with that.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
It's surprising that so few people have seen the auction 2NT-3NT-4M (and its ilk). I have bid 2NT-3NT-4M, I have seen my partner bid 2NT-3NT-4M, and an elite player recently used this sequence in a world championship. In none of the three cases had the opener missorted the hand ...
