Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Alertable or not?
Yu, The acbl alert procedure and alert chart state that most doubles and redoubles are not alertable unless they have a "highly unusual or unexpected" meaning. I think most people play the redouble as showing appx 10+ hcp; certainly 6 would surprise me.
ACBL announces new director of field operations
I did not know that is how responsibilities are divided. If its just tds I would have tried very hard to find a serious bridge player. Hopefully his other skills will prove valuable.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AKQT76 5 K8762 7
For me it would clearly be takeout. Now if I bid over 5C, I should have spades and diamonds. I think this should show slam interest since offering pard the chance to take a preference for spades at the 5 level seems odd. That implication is undiscussed so its a ...
ACBL announces new director of field operations
While I love the idea that senior folks at the ACBL overseeing directors would be serious bridge players, there are two reasons I am less worried than I might be: 1. A big part of planning nationals is hotel contracts. Dealing with these high dollar negotiations is hard. I think ...
Where is the queen?
Good question! No. I didn't mention 4th best leads until page 2. Sorry if it felt like a trick question, but asking - then thinking about the answer - was kind of the point.
Where is the queen?
Meant this for the intermediate forum, hopefully it can be moved, apologies to those who think it is way too easy.
Rajeev Jog's bidding problem: KQ3 A4 T9832 Q82
Mark, my comment above wasn't how I would play these auctions or what is standard but an attempt to explain what I thought was going on.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: A4 86 AJ9762 KQT
Its funny, when I made it I thought it wasn't textbook but everything seemed to be pushing me there: I didn't want to miss a vunerable game and lose a bunch 9f imps for +300, 10 tricks are easier than 11, at least the enemy trumps are likely ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: A4 86 AJ9762 KQT
Yep, I got it wrong, too focused on the vulnerable game that looked most promising from what I knew at that point. I should have doubled and seen what partner had to say. It would have cost us a few imps vs my actual decision (which turned out brilliantly when ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: A4 86 AJ9762 KQT
Yes, definitely not penalty, but often partner will pass, and if we have a minor fit its not guaranteed that 5m is better than 4S, so I was mostly thinking about the X being passed. I can bid 4N for takeout to minors if I really don't want to ...
