about me

Love all games, I really mean all of them, go,shogi,poker,french tarot, wargames, computer games etc

"I mean, Gus and I never see eye-to-eye on work stuff.For instance, he doesn't like being used as a human shield when we're being shot at.I happen to think it's a very noble way to meet one's maker, especially for a guy like him.Bottom line is we never let that difference of opinion interfere with anything."

Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
After looking at Henk number for the first post I think he forgot a condition. in std 1C opening will only have 3 when its 4333,3433,4423. But its going to be 4 when its 4324,4234,3424,3334,2434 4414 (any range) so we see that 4 card ...
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
To create 99999 hands of 12-21 (I dont open 11 bal) 4423,4333,3433 (assuming 3343 =1D) and 12-21 removing 15-17,20-21 bal. It took 6,074,934 hands for 0.01646. We quickly see that 4 cards suits is twice as frequent as 3 card suits. all 3 compared ...
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
Im also using dmpro. To create 99999 hands that satisfied S1 Acc HP11-21 ♠-0-4 ♥ 0-4 ♦ 0-4 ♣ 4-4 (exactly 4) S2 Rej HP15-17 Bal S3 Rej HP20-21 Bal ♦<♣ it took 2,895,081 deals To create 99999 that satisfied same as above but exactly 5 it took 2,562,279 deals. 99999/2,895,081 = 0.03454 = 46.95% of 4 cards suits 99999/2,562,081 = 0.03903 = 53.05% of 5 cards suits so if we keep C>D (meaning with ??44 or ??55 you open 1D so these are discarded) having exactly 5C is more likely than exactly 4 ...

I made a mistake this first run is 4D and 4C are opened 1C. When i did the copy paste it didnt work because of the bracket.
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
-------- South Definitions S1->S3 -------- S1 Acc HP11-21 -0-4 0-4 0-4 4-5 < (in brackets) S2 Rej HP15-17 Bal S3 Rej HP20-21 Bal your going to get 46% of 5 cards suits and 54% of 4 cards suit.
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
Im pretty sure the 3rd line is wrong 10,25,24,27,14 probably the real numbers are 10,24,25,27,14 or 10,25,27,24,14
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
Also IMO the relevant cases is when responder got exactly 4clubs in his hands. Knowing how often partner got 5C when I hold 2 got a limited interest IMO. Also note that 1C--(P)--?? the opponents pass make it more likely that opener is balanced and less likely hes going ...
Odds of number in a suit when pard opens a short club
Like I say force south to have only 4 or 5 clubs. Make sure clubs are longer than D. 5D+4C or 5D+5C do not count. You don't need to make a big sample. I knew that rocquibridge numbers are wrong at least 10 years ago.
What should 4NT mean here?
Its also natural that for the slam try in clubs you can bid 5C directly vs pass and delayed 5C.
Assign the Blame/Credit
I agree with all except the last paragraph. Opener X 2H despite me passing on the 1st round, I expect either short H or a 18-19 bal. If I bid 3D showing values partner is not forced to bid 3NT with any 18-19 bal he will only pick 3Nt with ...
