Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Are you kidding me?
I can't understand not alerting 2 if it is anything artificial (and especially if it is also unusual). Any rule to the contrary should not only be changed, but should not even be followed while in effect. Slavishly following absurd rules belongs in dictatorships.
David Boxley's bidding problem: 7 532 A532 T9632
It depends on what 1 means in ‘Pretty standard 2/1’, but I would bid 3 only if 1 shows four+.
Louis Dekker's bidding problem: A6 A9754 AQT5 75
I play a pass in direct seat over a weak notrump as 15+ HCP, but this ‘good 14’ would qualify.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: Q642 Q3 KJ52 KJ3
I have the agreement to bid 3 on any hand with four-card support, even a dead minimum like this. The fit is too important to suppress.
Gazzilli doubt
Right: I do not (yet) play Kaplan Inversion, nor any Gazzilli after 1-1. They are on our list for the future.
Gazzilli doubt
What is hard – or at least different – after 1- is: (1) unlike 1NT, 1 has no upper strength limit; (2) unlike after 1NT, a suit (spades) is known for responder. This all but precludes analogy with 1/-1NT. Playing Kaplan inversion (1-1 as up ...
Wrik Chakraborty's bidding problem: xxx T9xx AKQxx x
To me this hand is worth a three-card limit raise. In my system that is included in 2.
Gazzilli doubt
A semi-forcing 1NT solves the problem of what to do with an absolute minimum 5332 (i.e., pass), but not what to do with a 5332 and some extras (say 14 HCP). I include 5332s in 2 Gazzilli.
Gazzilli doubt
Rebidding after 1-1NT under Gazzilli is easy: largely the same as after 1-1NT, at times even easier (like: 1-1NT-2-2NT is weak with 5-5 minors; more complicated after 1). The hard part is rebidding after 1-1! Especially when not playing Kaplan Inversion (nor Flannery ...
John Miller's bidding problem: AK76 AQ7 8 AKJ94
4 is fine with me. With slight extra values partner could have bid 4 Last Train. 4 now is an absolute sign-off, which I respect. As I play, 3 would have been a balanced (near) game-forcing hand with fit.
