Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: J KQ9763 J AKQ73
I think that 6 is a good sacrifice. But I'm very worried that it pushes opponents into a making 6. So I'm wondering whether West is a player that would have bid 6 (or some other slam try) if he or she should have.
Discarding Problem
Surely it should mean something whether partner cashes the 9 first or the 5 first. Of course I've never discussed this with any partner. What's the most reasonable agreement here?
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: J KQ9763 J AKQ73
How good a player is West?
Should Michaels require an alert?
Unfortunately, at many clubs there are many life novices who still have no idea what their basic agreements actually are - they just bid how they were taught to bid with only a vague awareness that other people have different agreements. Requiring announcements for the first round or two would make ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
For Pair 3, you might want to encourage them to put some time into thinking about how to disclose their system. They should think about what the opponents likely might want to know when they ask about bids at a certain point so that they automatically prioritize giving this information ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
Yes, it would only come up once a year, because no one at the club would play it, and only three pairs at the local sectionals, and those are all the games we play. (Three pairs x 6 sessions = 9 rounds (half the time they sit our way) x 2 ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
The problem isn't learning a defense - it's remembering it when it comes up once a year. As I state below - my quite competent partner can never remember our simple defense to Flannery, which comes up about once every two months against us.
The books have got to go.... Part II
If this kind of basic competence (and I assume you include being able to reliably remember these defenses) was a requirement to play, I wouldn't be able to find a game within 250 miles. (Yes, that zero is there.) The mollycoddling is a price we have to pay for ...
The books have got to go.... Part II
1) The vast majority of bridge players do not have the ability to read a written defense and understand it (given any amount of time but no help from someone else explaining it with examples, et c). 2) Even if Multi 2D was GCC, I doubt I would see it ...
Question about Michaels Cue Bid
My preferred agreements: An immediate 3 is preemptive, showing 4 spades, less than 10 points or so. 3 is pass or correct. If followed by 3 over 3, this is a hand with spades and clubs that is willing to go to the 3 level when ...
