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.

Cash out or break the Squeeze?
Oh narf. LOL me. Carry on.
What is 2!S?
To be fair, it's much harder to push a trump through when you don't have one, but West also had a chance to raise spades and didn't, so that's a consideration.
What is 2!S?
Whatever it is, it's not a takeout double shape (regardless of strength).
Cash out or break the Squeeze?
If partner wanted me to switch, he could have played a different heart, no?
Insufficient Bid
One issue that constantly comes up for me in these comparable call discussions involving insufficient bids and makes the entire concept unworkable in my opinion in most cases is: comparable to WHAT? In trying to divine the meaning of the actual call made, we have to make assumptions about exactly ...
BW 2/1: Splinters
Er, that's what I meant, yes. If it shows extras then you could be a 1543 or 3541 minimum unsuitable for a splinter.
Insufficient Bid
Depending on how disgusting partner's preempts can be at this vulnerability, this could be right! A gentle raise to 2 feels a bit light though, but how often do you get the chance to raise partner's preempt to 2?
Insufficient Bid
If one plans to bid a lot of clubs (four or more), surely it's better to accept the IB so as to leave West with less clarification of his partner's hand type.
BW 2/1: Splinters
If we're saying that the splinter here promises extras, does it follow that a sequence such as 1-2, 3 promises exactly 2542?
How do we bid those hands to the best game?
Well, first they have to double 2C, then they have to sit the redouble.
