Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
Is it so clear we want to split? Based on the spots (not) given, it looks like if we play an honor, declarer can win the K and clear the suit for two losers, but if we duck, declarer would need to put in a spot, which isn't automatic ...
Is there a Standard Meaning for this X?
Well if partner is going to double with 5-5 you can't really be jumping to the five-level on a five-card suit...
Is there a Standard Meaning for this X?
2 would be quite reasonable as a passed hand, which h responder was. 1NT is fine too but 2 isn't wrong.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A K6 KQT2 QJT872
You don't need an artificial solution, just bid 3 the second time (3 should basically guarantee 5-6 imo) and over 3 now 4 is unambiguously a strong 4 bid.
Lose the Trials Semifinal with Me, II
It doesn't seem clear to me. There is certainly a case for treating 2 as the equivalent of a reverse, but as against that, failing to get the major in there can result in missing a fit and possibly game. I think lots of players shade the values ...
Is there a Standard Meaning for this X?
Isn't it a totally different beast in Precision vs. standard? You won't have the "extra values with defense" you might have in standard, so I would think takeout with a singleton in their suit being the expected length makes sense. That said, having rules and knowing when they ...
Meckwell 2!c precision opening structure
Don't know about Meckwell but the typical Meck Lite structure is: 2 = art ask, nominally inv+ but values often shaded 2M = natural NF, opener always pulls with a singleton 2NT = forces 3, either to play or to show a 5-5 GF (3 = majors, 3M = major + diamonds ...
VOTE on Whether an IMP penalty can be awarded for slow play if there is a video recording of the segment
I'm actually wondering whether being on Vugraph helps. Does Vugraph come with time stamps that allow you to review a session? As far as I know, it doesn't, so presumably the reason being on VG passes muster is that someone could have been watching and made a note ...
Why was this easy slam missed?
Saying a world-class should learn X is condescending enough to begin with, but it's pretty egregious when the remark is wrong or off-base.
Interesting Play Problem from Victor Champion Cup
Sitting around with people, someone says, "I normally hate when someone posts an 'interesting' hand on Bridge Winners, but this one actually was interesting." Not surprising coming from KRosenberg.
