A list of "Just bridge" situations
Edited for clarity: 1/ is not forcing, 1NT is.
A list of "Just bridge" situations
While all in favor of full disclosure, I think some of these ‘just bridge’ situations are just hard to accurately disclose. Take for example a 1NT response to 1/ (irrespective of forcing or not). Stating it as ‘0–12’ would suggest that 1/ be forcing, while ...
How would you bid this hand?
Yes, you are right. I misread the problem.
How would you bid this hand?
I open 1, then over partner's 1 response I rebid 2NT – which shows just what I have: an invitational hand with six+ diamonds and three hearts. This is our solution for the ‘Bridge World Death Hand’. With any strong (18–20) balanced hand we open 1 ...
Does multi go for more numbers?
Another value of Multi is that strong options reduce the strain on the otherwise overburdened 2 (in spite of Kit's valid point). Latest fashion is game forcing in diamonds in Multi.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T32 AJ954 --- AKJT4
As double implies four(+) spades but not clubs, 3 already tends to be some extra values or five clubs. Therefore, my hand is good but not as strong as it my appear.
Good/ bad 2NT or Scramble?
Yes, with several mostly obvious exceptions, such as when we cannot possibly be ‘good’ or ‘bad’, or when we had already established a good fit.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: KQ KQ753 KQ9 AJT
2NT: at the two level I play this as 17–20, while doubling on weaker balanced hands.
Good/ bad 2NT or Scramble?
Obviously both Good-Bad and Scrambling can at times be valuable in a situation like this. However, avoiding misunderstandings should have priority over optimum usefulness in specific situations. Therefore, some general rule is in order. I play that, when it could be either, 2NT is Good-Bad when bid voluntarily, i.e ...
The diagram shows East instead of North bidding 3NT.
