Another Reese-Schapiro Hand
Why is on board 5 no one vulnerable?
Is 1M(in first/second seat)-2m;3m passable, in Standard bidding? (Opps are silent)
I do not play SAYC, but the French Standard System SEF is almost identical in this aspect. A 2/1 bid is not a game force, but it promises a rebid (if game is not already reached). Openers raise to 3m shows 4 card support and is forcing to game ...
Technical question: is this 3!h bid forcing
If you are not allowed to pass a bid by your system, this bit is usually considered as forcing. If a bid is forcing usually depends on other bids made before. So if 3 is not forcing, you must be allowed to pass. And I disagree that it is ...
Is there a PROVEN best carding method?
I am not sure if you can really separate the issues. If it is always clear that the signal is attitude (or count)there might be no problems. But in gray areas it might be helpfull to harmonize count and attitude signals, so that reverse count might be superieur, if ...
Is there a PROVEN best carding method?
Would playing the ace not even more clearer?
Is 2!H forcing?
I play still 1 (x)2 as nonforcing. And I would expect a lot do the same. I comes up regularly and works excellent if you use it with the right cards. But maybe I get other cards then you.
2NT and puppet stayman
Is bridge not a wonderful game. I have quite the opposite attitude. I never liked to open 1NT with a 5 card major. Then I tried it. Now I really hate it. So for me 1NT denies a 5 card major and it will be hard to convince me otherwise.
2NT and puppet stayman
In case 3 (3NT) the information loss ist exactly the same, isnt it? Opener must reveal if he has an major and likewise if he has none. In the other 2 cases you are right, he doesnt have to show the major, partner is not interested, at the expense that ...
2NT and puppet stayman
I have seen that argument a few times, but I dont really understand it. How can you disguise openers pattern by playing puppet stayman instead of ordinary stayman and still have a benefit.
ATB playing 5m down when 3NT is much better
If you only bid to contracts, you are 100% sure to make, I think you might still loose imps or mp on average.
