Memphis Natl Fast Pairs win taken away by Directors
Yes, ty Mike. I would have thought that if OP felt it worth arguing some case which runs into 12 paragraphs he would at least have taken the trouble to use the proper tools to make it easier for the jury. I would not have bothered to read it, but ...
Not a bidding poll
I have seen this specious argument often. Presumably that comment would still apply if you held three natural trump tricks. It is matchpoints. You might easily have a +110 available. You chalk up your measly +100 and get a 25% score.
Not a bidding poll
I suppose that assertion depends on your conception of a full opener. Not in my universe.
how do you bid these hands?
I was much impressed by the articles Ed Manfield wrote many years ago, and couldn't wait to start using FSJs. But my experience has been very much that of Csaba -- one rarely holds the hand for them, and almost never after (1suit)-overcall-(P)-?
Torpar
David is the quintessential rubber bridge overcaller. I too am in that camp.
how do you bid these hands?
Your methods are inconsistent. If the hand you quote is an overcall (you'd have to put a gun to my head) then the other hand is a simple 2 bid. I like the following: change of suit nf, and 2N by advancer after a 2-level o'call is ...
YBTD after slow double
I also question whether the doubler, having seen his p take the least welcome action in bidding 3, is obliged to pass. I would think that running to either 3N or 4 are both reasonable, even percentage, actions. Picture opposite Qxxx Jx Ax xxxxx. They lead a ...
YBTD after slow double
I agree with David. I don't think the BIT necessarily indicates one kind of off shape reopening over another. I think it is worthy of a committee, though.
YBTD after slow double
No indeed. I didn't mean to say that. I would not bid it, but I agree that many would. How many is what we are discussing I suppose.
4th suit?
Well, if the OP is playing Walsh (a method I find ridiculous) I'd say that there was every reason to bid 2 natural in case his esteemed P held a 2461 pattern.
