Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
If NS were not playing that Stayman convention it’s easy to imagine 1nt-2nt-3nt going two down on a heart lead? Even three down is possible. So I guess reaching 4 was a success even if they couldn’t play the cards well enough to make it. People do ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Because you don’t have the ace. If you have the ace in case A you double, no need to break tempo. Why do you break tempo? Because you do not have the diamond ace, but you have something else that gives a chance to set. Now you must consider ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
The declaring side. The point is that for A, double will always get you a diamond lead. So if you have A you double. If you just have nothing you pass. When do you have a problem? If you think they are going down (so might want to double for ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Seems like you can divide players into two groups: A: double would show the diamond ace. Since south did not double, there are many LAs to leading a diamond. Partners BIT doesn’t suggest a diamond lead, because with diamond ace he would certainly double — most likely he thinks they ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
So it looks like the argument here is: 1. It is obvious to lead a diamond based on the auction. 2. Double would call for a diamond lead. 3. However, South's hesitation (followed by a failure to double) suggests that he would like a diamond lead. 4. North's ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
There seems to be some inconsistency here. The question is, how clear would it be that a double asks for a diamond lead? I know that I've never had any such discussion/agreement with any partner, but maybe these two have? In any case it seems like there are ...
Transfers from a non-forcing 1 Club
It seems fairly common (at least in the US) to play that: accept transfer = weaker NT with 2-3 card support 1NT = stronger NT with 2-3 card support jump accept transfer = weaker NT with 4-card support, or equivalent unbalanced hand double jump accept transfer = stronger NT with 4-card support Of course ...
Transfers from a non-forcing 1 Club
What happens on openers 3136 shape after 1-1? You have three card support but not really a strong hand? A lot of people like to use 1-1Red-1NT as like 18-20 balanced. This saves you from a 2NT rebid, so you can get out lower when responder is ...
Fleisher and Martel Lead Blue Ribbon Pairs
Surely this is part of it, but there are lots of good pairs in the field and Grainger-Hinze didn't actually WIN the BAM (just lead after the first day). So it feels like there's some carry-over effect (played so well in the last event they start the next ...
Fleisher and Martel Lead Blue Ribbon Pairs
Twice already this tournament, winners of a major event lead on the NEXT event after day one. Is there some reason for this (bridge players are “streaky”, some sort of intimidation factor, etc) or just chance?
