Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: KT7 T75 AJT2 AT7
In games that are based on probability evaluation, comments tend to exaggerate. I'd say: they should exaggerate. Assume I say: "At MPs it sometimes is better to provoke them. May be at level 2 we will set them" It actually says nothing...
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: KT7 T75 AJT2 AT7
We must press them!!!! The only disadvantage of the double is that pd may think that I want the clubs lead. But I assume he is intelligent!
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: A KQ9542 J54 AK9
Next double should mean that I have 6 hearts, but I'm not sure if my pd will understand it this way.....
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: --- QJ95 Q9632 KJ92
I know what to lead: Clubs. My pd most probably will take the trick and he will know what to continue (most probably he will play trumps).
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: T874 A J9 J75432
Pass has a disadvantage: it is about 50% chance that 2 passes will follow. I do not want to defend 1 in major at MPs.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Q2 K762 AK872 A4
There is here an experimental bid: 2. In 80% of cases we will play 2, which might be better than their 1N. Pd may have spades and in this case our 2 can be good.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AK JT7 JT863 QT6
This problem would be more difficult at IMPs.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: KQTx x Kx KJT9xx
Double has only one disadvantage: pd can say 5 with 5 having 2-3 clubs. I estimate probability of this event to be 15-20%. It is not too much. And even within this event not all distributions of cards are against us. It is possible that 5x will cost ...
Jack Spear's bidding problem: A A32 A432 QJ432
dbl would be take-out?
Gonzalo Guridi's bidding problem: KJ9732 JT AK J62
I definitely can not accept any artificial bid (or gadget) that was not allowed by author of the problem. The only standard bid here is 3. Yes, it has many disadvantages. Taking this into account I propose here an alternative philosophy: the Hammann rule. "If you do not know ...
