Help Newer Players Reach Slam
After passing with 11, your range becomes 0-11. If you have 11 you cannot make the same non forcing bid you would do with 0. If partner doesn't make game opposite a nice 11 hand he shouldn't double 2.
2C-2D-2S-3NT (opponents silent)
I was leaning more towards x J10xx Q10xx Q97x
Defense From the Bermuda Bowl
why 2?, south can pass 1 and it would probably become the final contract, it is going to go down as well.
2!c With an Unbalanced Hand
I've seen people opening 2 on hands that if they went: 2-(2)-pass (negative)-(pass) their best bet would be to pass 2 because oponents were obviously cold for 4. I don't think this should be allowed in general.
Hasta la vista, visa?
You are of course free to assume that when I say "the people" I am referring directly and only about you and your partner. But it doesn't mean it is right.
Graded Suit-Preference
Indeed, but then, every option seems to have a flaw. I guess the balanced 13-15 you hope to find when forcing to game is way more likely than unbalanced minimums the pessimistic me is scared of, do you know what are the aproximate percentages?
Graded Suit-Preference
Not sure I would use it if available, but I think 2NT response is worth thinking about if it is natural.
Hasta la vista, visa?
@Lynn Johannesen, best thing about this "tells" is that if you ask people how they knew someone had been nervous, unhappy, uncertain, they will not be able to phrase it. They will simply say "I just knew from your body language" or something like. Body reading is not a concious ...
Keycard response with ten trump
You can do that, but as responder you also have to be wary when hearts is the fit, for example on this hand it is virtually impossible that partner has a hand that misses 2 keycards since that would mean he is overbidding with KQ
Student Scam Warning From ACBL
I've been added as a friend in facebook by people impersonating WBF authorities. The first conversation with them was revealing enough to delete them quickly , they wanted to talk about some financial bonds or something like.
