William Campbell's bidding problem: J4 T8543 AT842 T
I have to disagree that 2 is game forcing, and should be treated as a reverse as it gives Responder a chance to limit his hand with a 2NT bid. Responder can respond with as little as 4 HCP holding a balanced hand with an ace. I had a ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
Donald, I agree that it should be easy, but when this hand came up last month in an Open Pairs game in a Sectional most didn't find a slam. 4 were in 6, 3 in 6, 1 in 3NT, and 15 in either 4 or 5 ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
David, a 4 bid by opener after 3 would show a 1-loser spade suit with no 1st or 2nd round controls outside the spade suit.
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
Usually 6, but 5 is possible if Opener doesn't have a reasonable suit or notrump bid. On this hand, if one of the small spades were a club, I would bid 2 with five spades.
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
A splinter gives Captaincy to the Opener, and as Brad says, Opener is likely to sign off in 4 with this hand. By bidding 3, Responder maintains control leaving room for Opener to further describe his hand. In this case, Opener's 3NT shows minimal values with no ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
The Non-Serious 3NT bid is saying "I have no interest in slam Partner, but I'm willing to co-operate if you do". Responder's hand is still unlimited after the 3 bid setting trump. If Responder has no slam interest, he can sign off in game without making control ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
Steve, when playing Non-Serious 3NT, a 4 level control bid by Opener after trump is set by the 3-level shows extra values.
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
Michael, I didn't say I didn't have slam interest, but was pleased by Pard's 3NT bid (first time it came up since we started playing Non-Serious 3NT :-). Had Pard, bid 4 over my 3 bid instead of 3NT, the results would have been the same ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
When playing non-serious 3NT, and agreement on a major at the 3-level, Opener will never use a Fast Arrival bid of 4 when Responder's hand isn't limited. Here's a good article on this. http://www.bridgewebs.com/brunton/page47.html IIRC, Rodwell and Mecksroth originally used ...
William Campbell's bidding problem: AQ8743 A42 63 Q9
The Non-Serious 3NT bid isn't an offer to play 3NT, but says, "Partner, I have no interest in slam, but if you do, start making control bids."
