Jef Pratt's bidding problem: AKT73 QJ6 A42 K4
14-16
Jef Pratt's bidding problem: AKT73 QJ6 A42 K4
As should any keycard ask correct? But by the predominance of the 4NT bidders, I don't think they are proposing 4NT to play, with the heart fit. But I felt as Richard, at the table in the moment, that 4NT could also be taken as natural, and knowing we ...
Jef Pratt's bidding problem: AKT73 QJ6 A42 K4
This was the auction that happened at the table and I was sitting with the south hand playing with a student who I've been teaching precision and who has only been playing bridge for a year. We had just agreed to play kickback and thinking he'd think 4N ...

Jef Pratt's bidding problem: Q A5 AJT7 KJT543
It was a class of intermediate players in our region. The actual student bid 4. But then a couple perts (again, regional perspective) mentioned they'd bid 4 reverse. Thus a series of polls to see what this community would have done ending up in this situation.
How Experts View Gerber (Marty Bergen)
Just got "RKC, The Final Word," by Kantar and his position is unchanged in this edition, pg. 182, Keycard Gerber (4) After a 1NT or 2NT Rebid, "After a suit response to an opening bid followed by the opener rebidding 1NT or 2NT, a follow-up jump to 4 ...
Jef Pratt's bidding problem: 9 KJT972 K95 872
Yeah, since I posted the problem, 2 now seems obvious. If the K was a Queen, then I would have bid 2 without a second thought. I still wonder tho, if we shifted all the suits up one to KJT972 K95 872 and 9, would most people make ...
