Failed attempt for a doubled overtrick
This is a very intersting topic. I am mainly on the "do the maths" side but beeing confident and other soft reasons are there and it's a mistake to count them out. Some time ago I was watching a match in the world championships (round robin). Declarer had safe ...
Florian Alter's bidding problem: 95 Q52 A2 KQJ983
not sure we can make 6 but I bid it and lead a spade vs their 6x
Thomas Gotard's bidding problem: --- AKJT9xxx JT9 xx
you nearly got it... Partner failed to alert 3NT and tried to guess the meaning by viewing his own hand. Opener corrected to 6H and got one of those dummies you can expect in a misunderstanding auction.
World Class Players Signal Attitude
I see you listed 8 teams in the open, probably the 8 in the quaterfinals. Out of 8 it seems that 6 are universally using attitude signals while the other to made it into the finals
Thomas Gotard's bidding problem: x Axxxx Kxxx Jxx
x would be take-out, extra values (stated in the OP)
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: AK752 32 AKJ 432
really depends on system etc. In my partnerships partner often rebids 1NT even with GF hands, after 2 gazilli I go for game after 2 response or try to sign off else
Nikolas Bausback's bidding problem: KJT Q853 AQ4 AQ9
I also answered your lead problem
Liam O'Brien's bidding problem: A KQJ3 A K876432
No special agreements is the best one on this hand. If partner is in doublt of natural and + and finds a sensible bid to cover both meanings, we will end up in a good spot after 4 :)
Csaba Czimer's lead problem: 6532 652 9743 65
Partner did not double 4 in a moment, where he knew he could help the oponents and in knowledge he will be on lead himself. A strong spade holding is not impossible and I think i lead a spade here!
Richard Bley's bidding problem: T 96 K9653 AT743
While I agree that we might have a game making, I doubt that we will always find it. I fear double causes 4 bids by partner too likely, he will often have 5 of them and expect more then one for a negative double of 3. Am also ...
