Board 25 from the 07/17/2017 Common Game
Thanks for posting. Nice bidding to reach the slam. I like the dummy reversal line. Generally, The Common Game commentators try to write about board which are played at more clubs. The higher board numbers don't see as much play. Consequently, they are less likely to be addressed in ...
Board 2 from the 07/10/2017 Common Game
Restricted choice doesn't apply with Queen Ten.
Board 9 from the 07/10/2017 Common Game
Sorry to hear the unusual auction at your table made it difficult to reach slam. Not sure if 3 is forcing in your partnership. If not forcing, a cue bid is preferable. Either way, East cannot pass 4.
Board 9 from the 07/10/2017 Common Game
East's hand is better than most 2NT openers. A 2NT opening doesn't promise an honor in every suit. After upgrading, 2NT is very descriptive. There is some risk opening 2NT will wrong side a contract, but that shouldn't dissuade East from making the bid which best describes ...
NMF or XYZee?
2 Way New Minor Forcing is easier and better than New Minor Forcing. It differentiates game forcing and invitational hands. It avoids space consuming jumps when opener is at the top of their range and responder has slam interest. 2-Way NMF offers more choice of game sequences, and offers more ...
What should this bid mean
You can cue bid with a strong hand.
What should this bid mean
Depends on the meaning of an initial 2 response
Board 1 from the 06/26/2017 Common Game
I would stack rank East's options 1, Pass, and then 2. Too little chance NS have a game and too much chance of missing an EW game to open 2. However, I am an aggressive bidder and partner will typically subtract a point from their hand ...
Board 1 from the 06/12/2017 Common Game
Leading a towards the King is best. When that fails, you can play North for Hx or a singleton honor, an 8.2% chance.
A simple sequence, but what does it mean
Depends on your super accept agreements...
