Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
When I'm on lead against 7NT, I don't say to myself, what ace are they off? I say to myself how can I avoid giving the opponents their 13th trick. Therefore I make the safest lead possible. Partner's huddle tells me that they are off an ace ...

This is 100%. If partner has an ace he doubles 7NT. If he doesnn't have an ace,you make the safest lead possible
The Levin-Grue auction
It is very bidding to respond 1spade to 1heart when you have only four spades and an opening bid. 1heart - 1spade auctions, especially if opener rebids two-of-either-red suit can lead to awkward actions. 1heart - 1spade- 2diamonds-3clubs(4th suit forcing) - 3nt and now what. Therefore if you have an opening bid ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
The main point here is that if the opponents are in 7NT and you have an ace and partner is on lead, you MUST double and hope that partner finds your ace. If you don't double partner could easily try to find a safe lead.
Refresher help in fundamental principles
Al Roth used to do it all the time so how bad can it be. It allows responder to respond 1diamond. However, most players bypass diamonds. I always open 1diamond so I can rebid clubs if necessary
0/3 Ambiguity
Why can't opener have Axxxx/x/AKQJ/Qxx and you're off the AK of clubs. This is why you need to bid 3spades in order to get a club cuebid
0/3 Ambiguity
4hearts was a very bad bid. Responder should bid 3spades over 3hearts which will get a cue bid if opener has three keys.
Defense to Unusual 2NT over 1NT
I play double shows a good hand. 3clubs is Stayman and shows at least one four-card major. With 5-4 Smolen over 3diamonds. 3diamonds shows 5-5 or better in the majors. 3hearts is a transfer to spades and 3spades is a transfer to hearts showing five hearts and fewer than four ...
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
If you're staying at the Hotel prepare to walk. The screens are set up in the rooms that are farthest from the lobby and that is a long walk.
Interference over a weak only multi-2!D
Penalty. 3major is p/C;4clubs says transfer me; 4diamonds says bid your suit. 4major is to play
