Tomaz Adamic's bidding problem: 987432 AQ5 A5 AK
2NT: 17–20, balanced, may contain a five-card major. This comes closest to selling my hand. I would not care to be in spades unless partner has at least three.
Highest Opening Bid You've Ever Made or Witnessed?
7 on AKQJ87 AKQJ52 A – Holder was afraid (wrongly) that 2-2-2 might be passed, opened an allegedly ‘practical’ 7 ‘because the Spades are better than the Hearts’ – and hit a dummy with a void in Spades and four Hearts. Justice was ...
Criss -cross Inverted Raises
Yes, 1-3 as natural, invitational, non-forcing: I played that for a while and it rarely came up. Now I play it as a Mixed Raise in diamonds and that comes up more often.
Criss -cross Inverted Raises
1m-2NT as a very weak raise makes sense for 1-2NT, as with values for a natural 2NT you can always find another bid, often an Inverted Raise. 1-2NT, however, is needed as natural if you play 1-2 as game-forcing, namely for a 4333 of 5 ...
Criss -cross Inverted Raises
Single raise is invitational or better, after which 2NT and three of the minor are the only non-forcings. 1-3 and 1-3 are Mixed Raises, showing ‘some values’. 1-2NT and 1-3 are truly weak raises.
Responding to 1!d Opener Playing 2/1
Yes, we play Inverted. And 1-2NT is not forcing.
Responding to 1!d Opener Playing 2/1
Four-card major first, but 1-2 shows four+ clubs only.
Does 2!d response to 1M ideally promise 5 !ds?
I play that 1-2/ and 1-2 show five+. 1/-2 shows one of: (1) five+ clubs, game-forcing (2) balanced or 4441, game-forcing (3) three-card support, invitational or better or four+-card support, slam try 1/-2-2 shows any up to ...
Leading from Three Small
It also tells partner where the honors in that suit are. That is more often important. Defense if already difficult enough.
Blackwood after partner pre empts at the 3 level.
We play Kickback (four above the trump suit for ace-asking). Over 3/, a direct 4/NT is Kickback. Over 3/, we need to first set the suit with 4(/), then can bid 4/ as Kickback. A direct 4/ is ...
