Need help trying out an unbalanced 1!d/1!h/1!s approach, please
They play 1 - 1 and 1other - 1NT as GF relay.I believe the reason being that 1 - 1 - 1NT shows the balanced hand and 2+ can be the same as after 1other - 1NT.
James Creech's bidding problem: 93 AQ96 KT65 Q62
Good poll :) All options are equally popular so far. I like opening to reduce the likelihood of a -lead as well as showing p some values. I don't like 1 with such a balanced hand, will get us too high if p has a fit.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQ5 A85 876 KQ97
Imo the only way to try to play from partner is to pass but most of the time partner would then try to transfer again by redoubling. So I prefer to bid 2 right away at least showing the correct number of hearts.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: AT5 --- J8543 T9532
We had a similar auction the other day: 1 (11-15) - (1) - 1NT - (2) X (p) ? We agreed that 2NT should be minors (no -fit, not having passed 2X). At the table we had no agreement but my partner still bid 2NT thinking that I would likely ...
What is 2NT?
So one answer from one in the minors camp: I found it convenient for double to show both minors and some strength (say 9+) and 2N to be weaker. With a constructive minor suit freebid just bid 3m and on weak minor suit hands just pass, usually you are not ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
Martin, I do not know how much sense it makes to cater to a hand that is exactly inviational and wants to improve the contract at the 3-level. A bit weaker and you might just bid 3H over 1S to show 7 and a weak hand. You might very well ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
Fair point! I agree that 3S shows more naturally what you have (Spade stopper, no stopper) and lets partner still bid a doubleton heart or rebid good clubs or 3NT with a diamond stopper. Thus, slam should be reached more easily if partner skips 3NT. But why should he ...
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJxx KQ9xxx x QJ
3 should be forcing here (With a Min just pass 3C) so I bid that hoping to find a fit there. 3NT can still be reached after a 3S cuebid by partner.
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: Q973 AQ82 95 KJ6
I learned that 2 is inv.+ asking for further description (If invitational, responder must have 5+ hearts). So opener should tell by his rebid whether he is min or max but ofc other treatments are possible. The jump is certainly space-consuming.
Jan Sohl's bidding problem: Q973 AQ82 95 KJ6
We open only good 11s (usually have a 5 card suit or some useful spot cards). I like your idea of betting on some diamond length in partner's hand. What I do not like is wrongsiding NT, but there is clearly no perfect bid. At the table I thought ...
