Balance of strength, forcing passes, and lower level auctions
Stephen, May I suggest that your inquiry is incomplete and indeed impossible without first being broadened to survey Opener's first rebid: (A) if he were to double 3, how should that be interpreted? (B) given the interpretation in (A), (i) should Opener Pass or (ii) double? (Opener's ...
Yet another one on negative double after preempt
Your initial comment left me in no doubt that both example sequences were game-forcing (and I fully endorse the reasoning in your clarification). What I had been querying however was what in your view and methods was the message that Responder was trying to convey in the 6 respective sequences ...
Yet another one on negative double after preempt
David, In the context of your "preferred methods" to agree as you describe "DBL followed by a new suit is GF" strikes me as eminently sensible.... I'm curious however as to the suit/shape/strength implications of your "preferred methods" Responder's choice between the following two sequences: (A ...
Gold Coast Teams -- a problem on defense
Barry, Thanks for sharing on BW. With the benefit of East's count cards in both 's and 's as well as the sight of Dummy's 's, it would have been no cost for West to elegantly hold East's hand on defence by dropping the ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: KJ8652 --- 64 A9643
@ Marshall: That's interesting....I suppose that with less dramatic distribution yet enough strength to feel compelled to compete, (say) 5=3=2=3 and 11+ HCPs, again you would double? I suppose that Opener might be counted upon to divine what you have on the basis both of his ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: KJ8652 --- 64 A9643
So the poor rodent facing you holds a not surprising (on this auction) though admittedly pessimistic T Kxx AJxxxx Kxx , applies the principle of "when in doubt, assume F" and has his choice of poison of getting your side even further overboard. I suggest, as you imply, that ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: KJ8652 --- 64 A9643
"Implies six spades" Convenient if it were true....but might you elaborate (A) on the basis of your foregoing assertion and in particular (B) how else would you propose bidding with 55 or 56 (in each case holding extreme shortness)? I also note that to ...
What do you play at trick three? The rest of the story
Deleted (misread) with apologies
2 parter
Michael R: LOL ..... thank you for stating my case so effectively .... after all, even you will find it a tall task to successfully reconcile your two following statements: (A) "(...) the PRESUMPTION should be that 3 says nothing about values" (emphasis mine) (B) "(...) I don't see how my conclusion ...
2 parter
Michael R: "If 2N is defined as a scramble, then 3 shows zero values." In the absence of OP elaborating on his partnership's agreed distinction (usually about strength) if any between (A) 3 directly over X versus (B) scrambling 2N followed by a 3 correction, your ...
