Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
2/1 with 4 spades (even in a balanced hand) really makes a lot of things easier. For example, you can just drop complex spiral raise structures, since with GF strength and exactly 4 spades, you can just start with 2m. Thus, after 1 - 1 - 2, if ...
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
Ok Keith. So what you seem to be saying is that you have no bid for 5 and 4 with less than 15 points. Fine if you play Flannery but not so fine otherwise. It also doesn't seem so great to preempt the auction with 3NT when ...
Pass vs Double
#1 Easy double. #2 Pass. But really close. Great illustration of the issues with a standard system where the undisclosed extra strength of a 18-19 balanced hand is "hidden" in 1 of a suit openings. (And with a weak NT, even worse - not only the 18-19 NT, but also the ...
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?

Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: K 8xxx KQJTx Kxx

The Extra Level

Jarek Langer's bidding problem: 84 KQJ42 QJ973 A
2 fit jump, perfect hand for the treatment.
Hank Meyer's bidding problem: T94 K87542 --- AKT8
I don't fancy going to the 3 level on this hand. I would need better heart pips.
Emanuel Evacic's lead problem: 2 J972 JT3 A7532
I am a simple man. I lead the unbid suit.
Thomas Gotard's bidding problem: --- AKJT9xxx JT9 xx
Seems like partner is allowed to bid 5NT if he wants me to play slam in my suit. Now he wants to play slam in his suit.
