But under Kokish, is 2 a “suit”?
Promises only 2 cards in s.
Makes no sense.

Option 1, “Systems on”… what does that mean in this context? :)

Re #2. “dummy is unlikely to have a stiff due to the lack of a splinter”

Depends a bit on their methods… at least here in Sweden a method that has grown very popular, is to bid direct splinter only with a void, combined with a convention (skrot) that can locate singletons in both hands after 1M-2NT-response.

“duck ♠10” ?

Can that really improve your chances?

@Ed Reppert

Normal Jacoby transfers, sure.

That sequence would just be (one way to) sign-off in 4M.
Or did you have sthg more fancy in mind?

I'll just offer another method I recently learned,
if anyone's interested :)

1NT-2 =
………………. A) 6+, can be sign-off/GI/GF. -2NT accepts -GI, -3 declines.
………………. B) 6+, GI. Responder rebids 3.
1NT-2NT = Nat invite.
1NT-3 = 6+. Sign-off or GF.

Optional:
1NT-3 = 6+. Slamtry.
1NT-3 = 6+. Slamtry.

@Henry Sun – OP says “2♠ = a balanced game try or up to an invite with a 6 card minor.”

I guess “up to” means it can also be a sign-off in any minor, so this is a bit different method than yours. Opener cannot rebid 3 here.

Except for #2, is there any possible way to have those leads figured out at the table?

Or are they just pure “random-luck” operating? :)

After looking at the full hands, I think, yes :)

In #4, what means 3H “transfer”?
5+ and 4+?

At old-fashioned rubber-bridge, 2NT might be our second game :)

Since we are vuln against not and w zero defensive values and a suit headed only by Q (not ideal lead-director), hard to see a reason to bid 2 here…. (if we have some weak jumps here, would at least obstruct opps a bit)

After pd's T/O-X, seems opps have a 10+ fit, and doubtful if we really have higher contract?
Seems this bd belongs to opps, anyway, and
worst case, by bidding, we push them into 5 (making) that they will not find if I remain silent.

If pard is strong and finds a rebid himself, I think we are in better position if I first pass, than start by “overbidding” 2.

Abstain, since I can't really decide between the Pass alternatives given :)
Would be more inclined to bid if I had the K in my hand (better lead-director).

>“4N was KC for ♥s (both agree on 2nd)”

How can this be, if the are playing Kokish? Don't get it.

Just found out, these features are already available in BBO webgui! :)

Had not noticed that before…

See this thread, replies from BBO-Admin diana_eva :

Are you sure it still works? I tried this, too:

http://tinyurl.com/yay5r8yb

It works in my browser, but not as input on that page.

Tried it, too :)

It can read LIN-file. But can it generate handviewer-URL?

The built-in DD-function, seems it only computes the total result for full deal.

IN BBO handviewer you can play a few cards, and always ask for DD-analysis to the next card played. And then play some cards in a different order, and see what the result is, etc.

What's the exact input there? It says “Linfetch URL/ID”.

I tried both this:

http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?bbo=y&myhand=M-1075401496-1495749721

and this:

M-1075401474-1495749721

but only get “No hands found”.

Thanks Tim,

Might be a useful way forward there…

When I download a LIN file from BBO archives (http://bridgebase.com/tourneyhistory/) it actually works to load it into Bridge Solver.

But when I try to copy the LIN part of handviewer-URL it does not work, I guess it is the URL-encoding it cannot handle.

I usually go through the BBO webgui (http://www.bridgebase.com/client/client.php) — under “My BBO” => “Hand and results” … etc, I found no direct LIN-link, but there is actually an option “Export deal” => “Save as…” which might work….

Only, where does it actually put the file? I don't find it in the normal browser-download folder…..

EDIT: Looks like this feature only saves the deal to some “cloud-folder” on BBO's server for later viewing – not to a local file on my machine… hmm….
