Will Roper's bidding problem: 765 KT965 AK2 AQ
I DBLed. Partner had 5-4 so we reached the wrong game. 4 is the big winner. As said this came up two years ago I thought at the time my usual bridge is hard. However, it has led me to wonder how useful 4 is here ...
Will Roper's bidding problem: 765 KT965 AK2 AQ
Nice logic and Norman S agrees with you fwiw. The problem with this logic in reality was most tables were pre-empting 3 and we have an easy 9-10 tricks in 3NT.

Nope although opps were juniors :-) Nor is this a poll for a ruling as most of mine seem to be these days. This was my hand and came up two years ago.
Defending the 2!c overcall in Multi-Landy / Woolsey
Personally, the most important things to me about this spot are 2M = Natural and 3M = SPL with both minors. Fitting that around a Rubensohl structure gives you: DBL = Values 2/2M = Natural; NF 2NT = 3 = 3 = Stop ask 3M = SPL with at least 5-4 minors
What system over (1m) - 2m - (pass) - ?
2NT = Ask 3 = 3 = For me personally
Never a dull moment
On hand 2 you are ofc correct if you want to score 11 tricks.... :-)
Never a dull moment
fixed thanks
Support doubles after 1!d (1!h) 1!s
Showing a 5-3 fit seems not too clever. I use DBL here as T/O but I do know an expert pair who play it as exactly 2. I imagine their method has some excellent upsides at MP.
They Are A Changing
Think both are rulings for me but not clear-cut. Hand 1: This hand should have bid at multiple points in this auction. I assume they got out as they claimed 4 was "pick a major partner". I.e they deliberately used a bid to cover partner when they ...
Exciting Endplays in Swedish Teams Semifinals
Thanks for the hands. Very cool. On the second hand: An alternative line which might be better is to draw trumps. Now when East shows up with 3 we know he has 4315 or 4306. Cash A and the whole hand is revealed. Now AKQ (throwing a diamond ...
