Balanced 17+-19 hcp hands in competition
I like and wrote various versions of 2C=18/19 or strong. Responder assumes balanced in competition (similar to interference over 1N). Version 1 basic is to play 2C - 2D as forcing 2N (or strong showing). Natural higher responses, natural NF at 2 level (2N NF weak minors...), forcing at ...
Playing Count as the primary signal on Partner's leads
A few bits and pieces: If playing attitude, then with xx in dummy, attitude on A would be for K respectively. Typically, from AKxxx or longer the K might solve the over ruff mystery. Against NT, you can't get it right all the time, but on ace lead (with ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: x QT8xxx 9x AKJx
Anyone play 2N art here? Can bid 3N to play.
Is this forcing?
You can play 1m 1S 2m 2H (agreed as forcing by OP) 2N 3H non forcing 1m 1H 2m 2S (reverse, clearly forcing) 2N ? - 3H NF (natural 4-6) - 3S F (reverse but not promising more than 5-5 shape). Opener will obviously pick a major with 3 cards, 3NT with at ...
Minor Suit Gazzilli Problem
Various options: If you're happy opening 1C or 1NT, that's fine mostly. Play in some 5-1 fits sometimes. If you play 1D 1M ; 1N as Gazzilli, then 1D 1M ; 2C is non forcing and natural (4-4+). I think you'd want to play 1D 2M as limited majors ...
Gerben Dirksen's bidding problem: KT9 AQJT876 K2 5
If partner has s power double, it might be important to get to 6N from my side, so respect to those blasting 4N.
Frances Hinden's lead problem: Q42 K542 3 AT842
Did a spade not work out?
Ned Kohler's bidding problem: AKJT963 --- KQJT72 ---
6S is hardly laydown and will be passed. 6D gets us to 7 when partner has the DA, which a) helps with trump control and b) provides a sure entry if we are going to close our eyes and take a spade finesse.
Eli Jolley's bidding problem: AKJT82 AT987 T J
I reckon there will be another bid somewhere (but could easily be wrong, might even miss an 11 card heat fit), so looking to try 5H next.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: J62 AQ6 J AJT762
But I think we have a fair idea what South has
