Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Would you double?
If I feel the need to lie to partner with Hand #1, I'll lie with 2NT as unusual for minors. If I bid anything other than 2 with the second hand, I'm walking home.
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
Not sure about this. Sounds well and good unless/until you're in a jurisdiction where the rescuers make a mistake, and no good deed goes unsued.
Simple Game
I kind of like opening 1NT here. I understand it's an underbid. OTOH... --It's not a gross underbid. KQ touching good, spots good, but only a 12.25 Woolsey Point Count. --You might miss a decent game try, sure, if pard has good-11 etc...but you're also ...
Another Reese-Schapiro Hand
If you read Wilsmore's book, you'll note he found actual witches.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
"Here’s an analogy: In the sports world...the tennis majors are always in London, Paris, Melbourne and NY -- they don't go to XYZ, OH just to rotate around." Seriously? Those tournaments have thousands of 'kibitzers' turning up daily, many of whom pay well over $100 to watch the ...
Comments please, on this 2D opening
Just more evidence, I think, that 2 should be a gadget opener, not weak. Even this hand (six diamonds and a quacky 9-count) isn't a weak-2 that most people are happy with. White, as dealer, I'm opening this 1. I'm also risking having to walk ...
Tough bidding challenge for BOTH partners
I don't like the 2 open because with this hand I haven't played methods where responder is going to be able to tell me what I need to know. Open 1, rebid 3 and hope Partner knows what to do.
Easier Than Eleven
This hand is awfully quacky to open 1N IMO. If I get to open 1 and rebid 2 I think I've described my hand almost perfectly (since methods have me 5-4 either way), and perfectly cheaply.
A thought much would it be worth to see dummy before the lead?
Link was posted here in a prior thread to a write-up... I can't find it. Punchline is that the baseball players could look at each other's hands for a few seconds BUT the hands were constructs, not random deals. Zany distributions, entry issues etc.
Thank you Zia!
Warms the heart.
