Familiar face in a Chessbase article...
By the way Jon Speelman was a keen bridge player at School and also played some at college.
Familiar face in a Chessbase article...
Even though I thought (correctly) I knew who I was looking for I did not find them. Time does not change everyone for the worse.
Plan the bidding and then play.
Yes you do have to tell us. This could be all about how to plan the trump reduction after two rounds of spades see West showing out. In such a case -- since you need East to follow three times in hearts -- the play goes SAK and now you need the ...
Who's crazy ?
I thought the person who bid 2 on the first deal would bid 3 or 4 on the second. Bidding less...now that's crazy?
common game thursday May 18
The antiquated methods in play require opener with no shortness to go high or low; there was no midpoint of 'extras in balanced 12-14' range. Were a 3 'all minimums no void' to be in use, you could differentiate at the next turn to show hands with no extras ...
Responses to Drury
It is possible to do a lot better than most of the methods suggested here and not to learn too many new gadgets. If you play Rosenkrantz (or reverse Rosenkrantz) then use it here, all calls above 2M are slam tries, and 2-2M-continuations as game tries along the same ...
What am I missing?
At least my memory isn't completely shot. Yes I did remember that I submitted the deal...not that I know how to solve the bidding problem.
You be the director!
Once the TD has been called he should look at the normal meaning of 2 facing a Meckwell double. That would be to indicate a long diamond suit, and West would pass unless West had extreme shape, which he doesn't. If West passes then either North passes and ...
What am I missing?
This seems a very familiar hand. I seem to remember it from a WC. Benedicte Cronier bid 3 maybe and she and Sylvie Willard missed slam? Possibly from a European Open event? The fact that I vaguely remember it suggests perhaps I reported it to BWS as a problem!
Compound Squeeze ?
Better double-squeeze analysts than I can correct my analysis but I think the general point of these double squeezes is that first (as you indicated) you force West to unguard one major. THEN you must cash the winners in that major. So had West unguarded spades to keep hearts you ...
