Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Garbage Stayman or Invitational
It represents whatever you have agreed it means.
Another Comparable(?) Call
Consider the following hypothetical situation. Suppose 1 denied a 4-Card major but an Inverted Raise to 2 did not deny a 4-Card major. (Yes, I know it is not played that way. Humor me.) Then the 2 bid would not qualify as a Comparable Call under Law ...
Another Comparable(?) Call
I am immediately adding this to my agreements. This is so much more efficient than Kickback. And if 2 Keycards are missing, we can still reach 3NT or maybe 4 on a 4-3 fit.
Phillip Vest's bidding problem: J84 A KQT9752 T6
Shows cards in spades. Does NOT deny a club stopper.
Karl Junk's bidding problem: Q7 Q652 732 AQJ7
Why did I double 2 in an auction that has not shown a fit? I think it is clear to pass the redouble.
Is playing the same boards in a pairs event important?
Yes, very important. Essential for major events. Nice in any case, but in regular club games it may not always be feasible.
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: 7 KQT93 QT2 AKJ8
I do not think you should have told us what partner thought 3 was.
A bad start
I think I should have waited until it was my turn to bid to ask the question.
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: J6 9752 8632 876
Pass. Give the preempt a chance to work.
Lebensohl or not?
Exactly.
