Sorta Like Gazilli
Not like Gazzilli. It seems like a modified version of Bart or Lisa.
Opinion on a director's ruling.
West didn’t show a spade control. Why would East cue bid without a spade control?
Opinion on a director's ruling.
The 3 bid rather than 4 is very suspicious. The 4 bid rather than pass or 4 is suspicious as well. Why is East making these bids if not UI from the failure to alert? I don’t think the director made a serious effort to ...
Opinion on a director's ruling.
If the agreement is 2 is natural, why is West bidding 2?
Board 6 from the 03/05/2018 Common Game
Yes, that was the assumption. Very expensive for South to decline their honor sequence lead.
Board 8 from the 03/05/2018 Common Game
South's playing strength is greater than expected for a 1NT overcall, but South cannot double and then bid a natural 2. So the 1NT overcall is reasonable. When North transfers to hearts, South shouldn't improvise with a 2NT call. For some that would be a super accept ...
Board 8 from the 02/26/2018 Common Game
If West passes as dealer, East opens 2. West's 2 bid shows shows 8+ points and 2 of the top 3 heart honors. East will drive to slam.
Board 7 from the 02/19/2018 Common Game
Wouldn't be eager to bid 3 with East's hand even if guaranteed partner would interpret it as a natural signoff. If playing penalty doubles, it is clear the delayed 3 is natural. If playing negative doubles, it is risky for responder to trap pass hoping for ...
Board 2 from the 02/19/2018 Common Game
East should bid 2NT to protect their King. Seems like a normal contract and result otherwise.
Board 27 from the 02/19/2018 Common Game
A negative double would show 4 hearts. Responding 2 should show 5 diamonds. Hiding support is generally a bad idea. If West raises diamonds, East cannot show their club support below 3NT. A 2 cue bid showing an invitational or better club raise. should have 5-card support. Cue ...
