Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How should East-West get into this auction?
This is a hand from the EBU summer festival Championship teams. North- South playing the style whereby all weak NT hands without a 5-card major open 1.
How do you play the 2nd double?
A very close poll thus far. My hand was approximately Jxx - KJ9x AT8xx. I thought that the same general rule should apply as after 1 any - x - 1M. Partner thought my double was responsive, but the misunderstanding didn’t harm us on this occasion.
How do you play the 2nd double?
2 wasn’t alerted. It is fairly common for this to be forcing (F1) in the UK.
How do you play the 2nd double?
My partner and I had the agreement that after 1 any - x - 1M (natural), x shows 4 cards in the major (with some values obviously) and 2M as 5+ cards in M. No specific agreement in this situation though.
Simon Mostyn's bidding problem: KQT732 --- Q532 854
That’s correct Richard. The pairs do battle once a month with an evening consisting of 3 rounds of 8 boards each. 16 pairs in the league with an all-play-all, so a league “season” lasts 5 months. A top on a board is 14 (we don’t use half match ...
Steven Allen's bidding problem: 2 AQ986 KT8432 J
I abstained because I think the initial negative double is flawed. It is a better description of the hand to bid 2, then 4.
David Eddleston's bidding problem: 54 AK5 AKJ9732 3
I see I have made very much a minority choice but I like 1X:1Y:3NT to show around 8 playing tricks in opener’s suit and denying a primary fit in responder’s suit. Obviously the singleton C isn’t ideal.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: A43 KQ72 K984 K3
If we have a clear partnership agreement that 3 is forcing, I agree that that’s the best bid. If not, I temporise with 3. Now if partner bids 3N, I’ll correct to 4, showing mild slam interest.
Andy Bowles's bidding problem: KT9764 9 AT54 J8
Close for me between pass and abstain. Andy, at this vulnerability, is there not a strong case for a 3 opening though?
Do you open this hand in 1st seat Love All at IMPs?
Sorry Phil, my ignorance for not realising that “Love All” wasn’t used internationally. The expression is commonplace here in England. Neither side vulnerable.
