After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
David: Thanks for verifying. I'm getting roughly comparable matchpoint results. For example for AKxxx suit, 1NT wins/ties/loses 44/26/30%, and average IMP win 0.54.
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
Some 5-3 info. When opener has specifically 3 hearts (includes 4333), then when responder’s heart suit is 4+ HCP, 1NT makes the ‘normal’ 57%, 2 making zooms to 72%. When opener has 3 hearts but won’t be 4333, 1NT down a bit at 50%, 2 up ...
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
I was curious, so looked at what kind of difference suit ‘quality’ makes in a 5-2 fit. Opener has 12-14 balanced, with 2 hearts. Responder has 7-9 HCP and 5 hearts in a 5332 hand. Sample size is 2000, large enough to be comfortable with the results. Seems the suit ...
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
When responder has specifically 5 hearts, opener (given same constraints) has 1/2/3 hearts 5/34/61%. You're welcome.
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
On the off chance it is useful information, I've simmed the chances of opener's heart length. Responder has 4-5 hearts, spades not longer, and minors < 6. Opener is balanced with 2-3 hearts, or specifically 3-1-(45) (with 4 spades he can easily rebid 1, with another minor ...
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
That's true. If opener might raise with a balanced hand with just three hearts, cancel what I wrote.
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
If responder is not 5332, he should rebid 2. If opener promises with 1NT to be balanced, responder should rebid 2. A 5-2 fit under those conditions will play marginally better in 1NT, but a 2 contract will play substantially better in 2, and opener will ...
Dumb doubles --an opinion piece.
The notrump hand often has positional value so we exclude xNT from all transfer ladders. Here, 1 (X) XX would show clubs, and 1NT would be 'natural'.
What do you play against multi 2!D?
Partner is encouraged to find a bid when faced with (2) P (P). I found some ‘work’ I did awhile back, but didn’t bother posting. When RHO has a 6-card major, you will see these hands: 54% will be balanced (including 4432 4333 5332 5422)) 24% have a ...
What do you play against multi 2!D?
First time around, don't bother with the takeout doubles because (1) you won't have the right shapes very often and (2) a good chunk of the time you will be takeout doubling for the wrong suit (you'll be 4144 and opener turns out to have spades). X ...
