William Kochneff's bidding problem: T93 --- T98764 9652
Keep in mind that partner's TOX can be pattern or strength. It seems that too often players presume it is pattern.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: KQ842 AQT9 --- AKQ6
Bridge is a percentage game. Is it more likely you will lose game when the auction gets passed out or that partner will bid 5D? Think about it. If your RHO has 13 HCPs (average) and you have 20, with only 7 HCPs left outstanding, which is more likely to ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: T874 --- AQJT9853 A
When responder has indicated there is a strong possibility of a spade fit, I think you need to find a forcing call that keeps the auction open to both spades and diamonds.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: T874 --- AQJT9853 A
The problem, of course, is that there is no KNOWN fit. Opener's spades are not great, to say the least. How do you explore 4S and 5D, not to mention a possible slam in either suit? If partner has AKQx, Jxxxx, x, xxx, slam...even a grand...is possible ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: 8 AKQ74 AT863 T2
Same score. Keep in mind, the balancing double was NOT for penalty. It simply asked partner to take a call based on his hand.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: 8 AKQ74 AT863 T2
In reality, I thought both W and N misbid. West had JT9x, Jx, xxx, QJxx and should have bid 2S over my 2H overcall. N had Q9x, T9x, x, Axxxxx and should have raised 2H to 3H. I chose to double, as I was not willing to let N/S ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: A7 A5 Q842 KJ632
For those opting for a double, what are you calling after partner bids 3C, 3D, or 3S? Will you know how good partner’s suit or hand is?
The Golden Rule
Hi, Mike. Kathy B. was the one with the groan. Of course, you know all those involved, and the names of the players have been omitted to protect the guilty.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: KJ97 K62 J3 KQ98
Finally! For the one soul who bid 3N, I commend you. However, that would be condemn, not commend, if you listen to other top players. I bid 3N, and then had the opportunity to hit 4S, thus winning 17 IMPs on the board when our teammates hit 4H at the ...
Irony to the Fullest
Frankly, I think it's a better story if you don't know the actual hands. It seems that when I put them out there for a deal like this, all anyone wants to do is offer ideas as to what someone should have bid and it's really not ...
