about me

obsessed with ethics, the today's fashion of unethical play has caused me many times to stop playing

my most beloved pair in the world: Meckwell

How do you play Picture Bid when the choice is 3M or 4M?
Not to mention that I don't understand this language. What is X? What is 6X?
How do you play Picture Bid when the choice is 3M or 4M?
How can I pick an answer when you ask me to pick a question?
Paul Dalley's bidding problem: AJT753 K3 A96 KQ
With the given hand, if they double you for penalties, they won't find the bones to bury them.
Cory Perkers's bidding problem: 743 T3 Q95 AKT64
It would have been a lot safer and better tactics to open this 3, instead of bidding 2 now (I am not suggesting that one should open 3...).
Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: KJ973 A82 53 A53
Possible yes. Probable certainly not. From what I can see, I cannot beat 5 of a minor, but I also have no reason to sacrifice, or rather I have every reason to not sacrifice.
Violet Anderson's bidding problem: AKQT32 A52 AQ J6
Is 2 opening a "nice hand"?
Nigel Guthrie's bidding problem: JT A7632 KT92 KT
Maybe you are right, but I would never open it and would always balance with it.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: AKxx --- Axxx AKxxx
If you remove the rest of aces, the hand would be: A10xx,QJ,KQJ,KQJx: This is not a 2 bid, it's a 2NT bid. So, it's more S, but 4NT makes no sense anyway, as said by Nicholas and Phil.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KT5 KQ7532 K AK3
I have 9 cards in their suits. Though I understand that by passing you don't make back the cost of the tournament, you can look at it by an optimistic point of view: they have also payed.
Eduard Velecky's bidding problem: A5 Q542 KT32 AJ9
W has overcalled vulnerable 2 and E has raised to 3, also vulnerable. The recently seen 50 point card decks are past! Welcome the future 65 point decks.
