Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Unclear auction
Whoever bid 4d undiscussed made a mistake, they should not do this. However, the best way to play is that 4d is natutal - a real slam try with good trumps. If I'm forced to guess, I guess natural, but I am obviously going to take a call either way ...
ATB Time
Part of the definition of a normal takeout double includes hands which are too strong to overcall
Very slow suit preference signals
I also think that a 20 sec pause midtrick to decide what signal to give is not, or at least should not, be ok.
Jim Munday's bidding problem: xxx x Jxxx AKQxx
I think there is a huge difference between "not preempting over a preempt" when they open a weak 2, as opposed to "preempting" in this auction. Preempts are much more effective when a (10) card fit has already been found. There is great value in being able to jump-raise to ...
Jim Munday's bidding problem: xxx x Jxxx AKQxx
I agree with Richards second point, but his 1st point implied that weakish hands with 5 spades should no longer bid 4s on this auction. I disagree with this personally, and I think it's not at all clear. I'd play that 4s on this auction can just be ...
Cover or not ?
Even if partner has 4 hearts to the 9, covering won't defeat the contract.
"Flexible signals" (part two)
B is a good point. I think with a holding like 98642, if we were going to lie with a strict 2/4 lead agreements, we should play 8 then 6. This distinguishes from 98x.
"Flexible signals" (part two)
maybe AJ7...
1NT or 1S??
why would you not find find hearts if you open 1NT? You don't play transfers? Seems to me you're a lot more likely to miss a heart fit by opening 1S, especially absent discussion on the auction 1s-1n-2n-? (what strength/length does 3H show here?)
1NT or 1S??
To answer your question Richard, if our expected value in the cardplay over the field is high enough, then the idea is to try to avoid actions which have high variance, but not much higher success rate.
