Han Peters's bidding problem: 742 K652 AQ AQJ5
It certainly sounds like there's been a bidding misunderstanding. If we can dismiss that possibility, then 6 is clear. You couldn't (hardly) have a better hand for slam opposite a 3 splinter.
How do you play the second double?
Craig, Thanks very much for your very cogent recommendations.
Alfred Abel's bidding problem: AK5 76 QT98765 5
I wouldn't say that 3 was "obvious," but Double is terrible.
How do you play the second double?
Craig, I'd love to hear your thoughts on whether Rubensohl or transfer lebensohl adequately solve the suit ambiguity problems of regular lebensohl. Is there a cost?
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
Against a strong 1NT, I'll double with a good hand and a good suit to lead, or most very strong hands. Not with a balanced 15-17. I expect partner to pass most of the time. Against a weak NT, I'll double with less, and I expect partner to ...
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
I prefer Reverse Cappelletti X = penalty 2 forces 2 = or Major-minor 2-suiter 2 = both Majors 2 = 2 = 2NT = both minors I like having a penalty double, and I think showing your major immediately is better than regular Capp.
How do you play the second double?
The Renegative Double convention: double shows 4 hearts, invitational. 3 instead show 4 hearts, competitive.
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: T8 KJ9543 AT864 ---
For what it's worth, partner's hand is: ♠ A 3 2 ♥ A ♦ K J 9 3 ♣ A 10 9 7 4
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: KQ96 A63 KQ53 T2
Steve, I think that with good methods, slam is very biddable after a 1NT opening.
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: A73 52 KQ5 KQJ74
This is a hand from Kit Woolsey's excellent new book, "The Language of Bridge." He recommends bidding 3 as a signoff in what he says rates to be a safer partial than 2NT. He may be right, but I admit that 3 wouldn't occur to me ...
