Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: QJ9 QJ8652 A7 A3
I can imagine passing that as dealer. But why on earth would you pass a second time if holding both top card in diamond (making a diamond lead not costlly) as well as great doubleton hearts (making 2 bid not unwelcome)
Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: QJ9 QJ8652 A7 A3
Hi Tom, I agree that leading A is unbright.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: 972 AKJ QJ865 Q5
Because partnership treatment of game forcing 45 could be bid spades first and show clubs later via XYZ 2. That frees the direct 2 is for showing predominantly clubs, or learning more of opener´s hand.
Double, what's it this time?
"How soon we forget....". Not forgotten at all, just that I was looking for thoughts on how to play doubles to begin with.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: 972 AKJ QJ865 Q5
If north promises 45, I am bidding slam, wich is on either heart or spade finesse, or something nice happening in diamonds. If only 4=4 in blacks we play 4NT.
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: KQ6 52 T852 K853
Just an eight count. Does the partnership have any agreements regarding invitational style at imps? Does the 1NT opener potentially hold five spades and is that discoverable?
Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: QJ9 QJ8652 A7 A3
Club part score is par for opponents. Failure by our side to open weak two in diamonds in north and failure to overcall wide range 2 south made this easy for them. Not unlikely that we can make 2 or 2, and that 3 made will ...
1!H-1!S
The hands do well with KI and Gazzilli 1 1nt (5+ spades) // 2NT (good 64). If already mentioned in yor LIst of Referential Readings, my bad, I did not read them.
Double, what's it this time?
Richard, scramble by responder could be feasible. But as opener I think takeout dbl is preferable. And I prefer the same from both sides.
Double, what's it this time?
Hi David, thanks for your extensive analysis. Our partnership changed the agreement earlier today. All (low level) doubles not for penalty as long t/o potentially useful. edit: and we do think t/o is useful here :)
