It looks like this was the final summary of the Swiss finalists to the participants. Why elso was it put on a flip chart?

Well, 4 wasn't overly aggressive with his 4 loser hand facing a 2 over 1 bid in competition. I would have bid 5 with the North hand.

I agree that this is all possible. But if north doesn't run and redoubles or passes, partner will bid. And as South obviously has nothing at all, the probability that the roof caves in after my X is not very high. I wonder whether south will sit for a doubled contract at the 2 level (3 level) where he needs partner to have 6 (5) tricks….:)

Are they not ashamed of publishing results this way? Just asking……

True. Nevertheless, the vulnerability gives certain hints, what is going on. I would always X with the West hand. If North has the world and his dog and I rescue the board for them, so be it.

Passing 2 looks very suspicious to me.

Ok, but what about the K of ? It might be decisive whether you have that card or not.

Yes, partner would have passed in a flash. But you wouldn’t have shown your strength.

I prefer the first double after establishing ownership to still be takeout and subsequent doubles to be penalty. Playing this style I would have an easy pass, knowing that pd doesn’t have a takeout X of 2, thus I won’t miss anything. Actually, I have a difficult problem. I will try 2 and hope for the best.

If you fear that, bid 4 and pass partner‘s 4 bid. For me in a GF auction where an 8+ cards M fit has been established and slam is possible, 3N isnt to play and cant be passed.

I don’t like the 4 bid, prefer 3N (-> pd can cue in Clubs). Would 4 have been last train? In the current setting pass is the only reasonable option.

I probably wont, but there still is a small chance. But I agree that deciding what to bid with this hand is a matter of style.

2? NVul against Vul? Facing a passed pd? My partners would expect SIGNIFICANTLY less :-). Can´t pd have Qx,xx,ATxx,xxxxx for example?

Being VUL with very bad spades, opener surely will have compensation: a good side suit and probably 7 spades. Playing pairs I might risk to pass but not in a KO match.

I do. It is like Pecision, where a 3 bid would be obvious You might occasionally get too high, but describe your strength and your distribution perfectly.

In a serious partnership I agree 100% with everything Frances said. In a pick up partnership I am really happy when I have a basic agreement after reverses and dont think about specifics.

If you play ingberman after a reverse, this is very easy. The cheaper of the bids in the 4th suit and 2N is conventional, shows all weak hands and will try to stop in a partial. Everything else is GF.

It´s really mindblowing that the Polish team is such a powerhouse that they can play without a pair as strong as Gawrys - Klukowski and STILL win the Bermuda Bowl :-). Congratulations!.

Would you have made the 6 in Board 27 last segment of the BB-Final if you had been in slam?

Which films by Tarantino do you like most? Much interested because I am a huge fan, too. :)
