Stuart King's bidding problem: K65 AJ64 T75 K95
Exactly my thinking originally.
Stuart King's bidding problem: K65 AJ64 T75 K95
I thought it was close between 3 and pass. Guess I was wrong
What do you think of convention to overcall 1N Bergen used before DONT?
DONT - the only convention that tells you if you should play it.
It does when partner is forced to bid 3 when you pass, as was my premise. And even when he is only very likely to bid it you can take advantage.
Really do not understand the dislike of the 3 bid. Given we have decided to compete to 3 already, by bidding it now you reduce the number of sequences for the opponent, rather than letting partner bid it. If you aren't forced to 3 your hand ...
1!C balanced or !Cs with transfer responses, 1!D unbalanced
The 1 opening really isn't that different to standard. All you are doing is moving the balanced hands that would open 1 into the 1 bid, and I move the club-diamond two suiters into 1. You can pretty much play your normal structure over 1 ...
What's the Position?
So much so that I would consider it a false card if East didn't lead the J when they held it and returned the suit!
Good Director Story
Craig, you have the inclusion the wrong way round. You have to make sure that the insufficient bid does not give any extra information not given by the comparable call.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T95 Q6 T42 AKT63
3NT. I would have bid this last round (particularly given the methods) and given we could have a invite 3 must be accepting. Not sure what the passers are hoping will happen :/
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: K9743 KQ8762 7 T
Seems clear to cue here. 4 is going to lead to you playing your cold slam in game a lot of the time.
