0/3 Ambiguity
Why can't opener have Axxxx/x/AKQJ/Qxx and you're off the AK of clubs. This is why you need to bid 3spades in order to get a club cuebid
0/3 Ambiguity
4hearts was a very bad bid. Responder should bid 3spades over 3hearts which will get a cue bid if opener has three keys.
Defense to Unusual 2NT over 1NT
I play double shows a good hand. 3clubs is Stayman and shows at least one four-card major. With 5-4 Smolen over 3diamonds. 3diamonds shows 5-5 or better in the majors. 3hearts is a transfer to spades and 3spades is a transfer to hearts showing five hearts and fewer than four ...
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
If you're staying at the Hotel prepare to walk. The screens are set up in the rooms that are farthest from the lobby and that is a long walk.
Interference over a weak only multi-2!D
Penalty. 3major is p/C;4clubs says transfer me; 4diamonds says bid your suit. 4major is to play
Equal Level Conversion Parameters
On the other hand I had Axxxxx/x/x/xxxxx. It went 1heart double 4hearts and I bid 4spades and made five. At the other table it went 1heart 2diamonds 4hearts all pass and they made four hearts. Partner had Kxxx/Jxx/AQJxx/x Sometimes you go for 1100 sometimes ...
Equal Level Conversion Parameters
I've had very good success doubling any heart bid with 4351 or 4261 distribution with minimum points. When I overcall diamonds over any heart bid, my partner knows that I do not have four spades. I also double 1club with 4513 and double 1diamond with 4531 hands. This way ...
Can you bid this slam?
I'm a strong believer that North should bid 3hearts directly or what ever your limit raise is. It's much harder to defend when the auction goes 1ht - 3ht - 4ht then 1ht - (1nt or 1sp) - any - 3hearts. Over 3hearts directly, South knows he's in the slam zone.
1S 2S 2NT
Open 1NT with 15-17 balanced. 1sp - 2sp shows that you would accept at least one game try. You don't want the auction going 1sp - 2sp - any game try - 3spades. Respond 1NT if you can't accept any game try. After 1sp - 1NT - 2cl - 2sp, opener will think that there ...
Legal Agreement or not?
If 2spades is in theory natural and partner does not play it as such, then if you really have spades, he can do what he wants. However, if you don't have spades he must take you back to spades if he has support. If he doesn't that would ...
