about me

Learned weak NT to start then Acol, then SA, then Precision and then 2/1 (the easiest to learn as more of a treatment). Now try for 2/1 and Precision but often get stuck with SAYC. Recently learned Mosca club with canape and Polish club.

Book i learned bidding most from Precision Bidding in Acol by Eric Crowhurst

Redoubled with overtricks:

2D+2, 3N+2, 4S+2, 2S+3, 1N+3, 1S+3, 2H+4, 4S+1, 4N+2

What has partner got?
But bidding 4 forcing to the 5-level when there is no reason to suspect partner has a slam hand.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 963 K8762 Q7 J53
Leveling the playing field for newer players?
Natural bidding and raising fits will do just fine for beginners to intermediate.
Reopening double after 1N (strong)
This whole thing depends on the conventions your playing
If the AI passed it's not playing 2/1 which will make playing against any of it's bids in future problematic.
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: AQ4 93 K985 AKQ7
Hmm there were some 2 bidders but they disappeared.

lead problem 6
Too stringent with the announcements/alerts?
The problem is figuring out what is required to alert by ACBL at least can at time require incredible knowledge.
1NT or not?
way too strong. In 5-card major environment open 1 and raise to 3M
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: K9852 KT A43 A32
Partner does have an opening hand but is Q/J ish so slam while close isn't there.
