Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: AKxxxxx x AKxx x
Would you also open 1 S if the hand had the Q of S? I'm trying to question the traditional wisdom that a 2C opening bid should be based on 22+ HCP. The 2C opening bid should be based on trick taking potential, rather than HCP. Having more quick ...

Reply to Jack Spear. There are six ways the six cards can be split, if we disregard the very rare 6-0-0. Of these the 3-2-1 accounts for 553%. So you think this is the only one you need to calculate the mean for all six splits. I listed the frequencies ...

I tried to respond but was informed there was a 400 error and it could not be printed. I don't know what that means and much less how to fix it. I then sent a 2nd short letter and was told: I admire your optimism. Then all disappeared. Is ...

How would you do this calculation at the table?

What facts/probabiliyies do you base your claim on?
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: AKxxxxx x AKxx x
If you subject this hand to post mortem analysis, you'll discover some interesting facts/probabilities. One test would be to generate this hand as N with the 'Play Bridge Hands Generators" on the internet and then do 10 000 deals. Tabulating the statistics would be prohibitive.. So why not ...

My partner held this hand and opened 2C. I held : Q6-QJ752-J7-Q762 and responded 2D. Partner then bid 2S and I rebid 4S. He made 5S. When holding 14 HCP there is 50% chance the pair has 23HCP. So why the pessimism?
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: 32 AKT4 AQJ5 765
Does anybody here add 1 pt for each 4+-card suit with 3 honor cards as advocated be Bergen?
Probability of 15 HCP
Imagine having tested 100 000 deals and obtained the frequencies for all possible counts. That might include 30 with 20 HCP. Now connect all frequencies and form a smooth curve, like a continuous distribution. Calculate the mean and the std.dev. and don't be surprised if the data fit ...
Probability of 15 HCP
I'm trying to establish a frequency polygon for the HCP responder will have when opener has a specified set of 17 HCP. I'm a numbers freak. The 15 count is not significant. I picked it because it seemed odd in my testing 100 deals. I'm wondering if ...
