about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

How do you play 4!H

How do you play 4!H
Just click a circle and press the answer button.
Steve Fama's bidding problem: T862 2 T863 AJT3

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 963 K8762 Q7 J53
The UI is that the person that bid 3NT was unsure if that was the correct action. They probably don’t have a flattish 18-19 with two stoppers. Where things break down is in question #2.
TD please
Try “wanted to offer to play 4H opposite it” instead.
TD please
With eight card support for partners takeout double, 1H would be silly.
Which minor do you open?
1C for me; I’m willing to rebid 1NT after 1H and 2S over 1S. This loses partner being able to rebid hearts with five decent ones to play 2H instead of 1NT when I have a more normal 1NT shape. It gains not playing stupid minor fits after 1D ...

No idea on the download ability, but July 2017 is what you want.
ATB - Missed Game
I don’t really like south’s bidding, but I don’t think it led to missing a game. I’m OK with not getting there with 10 opposite 10.
