Suggested Defense Against MOSCITO 1D and 1H transfer openings: Balancing seat
My own idea, although it seems common for people to use 1 as takeout of hearts in similar situations. Here it seemed better to double with the heart takeout though (more common hand type, better odds to “get them” etc) so I just swapped some bids.
Suggested Defense Against MOSCITO 1D and 1H transfer openings: Balancing seat
Not clear on this defense if 1 is takeout of diamonds or of hearts. Also not clear if it’s forcing. The double and 1 and 1nt bids potentially overlap a lot. Do we really need three calls for a weak notrump? It would also be good to ...
Is this system bad or illegal? (EDIT)
The only issue I see with legality is the missing 4441 hands. They definitely create a disclosure issue — if you describe a hand as balanced or as 5+ in some suit but it’s actually also the normal way to bid 4441 that’s not really on the level. Probably ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
Yes, SEF is fine. Pretty much any strong bid and responses is fine. The problem is that artificial bids which could be weak (less than 10HCP or so) are severely restricted. The new charts allow such bids if they have a known suit when weak, but Multi and the like ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
According to WBF policy, the following conventions are all Brown Sticker. This effectively bans them outside of top flight TEAM events (roughly the same events that would allow Multi in ACBL). 2 showing a weak hand with either diamonds or hearts 2 showing a weak hand with either ...
Cost/benefit analysis of redoubling 1 notrump
The assumption seems to be that this is some sort of poker game, where the doubling side must guess whether to run. My experience is that this isn’t really true. Advancer in 4th seat will either: 1. Fast pass = “I have some help” and now they let you play ...
Cost/benefit analysis of redoubling 1 notrump
The numerical analysis is fine, but in my experience “probably not making” doubled 1nt contracts are really common. I guess you’re running on a lot more (4432) hands than I do. In my experience 1nt is hard to defend (especially with the strong hand on lead) and sitting for ...
In The Well: Chip Martel
Hi Chip, You’re unusual among world class players in maintaining a full-time (non-bridge) job. How regularly were you able to play during the years you were working, and how much did you need to play to feel “tuned up” for top level events? Did your non-bridge job ever make ...
Chances of Winning a 60 or 64 board match:
The value of the standard deviation depends on the teams involved. If you take teams playing similar methods the standard deviation will be lower. I’d also expect standard deviation to be lower when both teams are good — if everyone bids and makes the “easy” games you get more low ...
New Performance Metric for the ACBL
I’m not really worried about this — suspect online play will come to the rescue here. The very top players generally learn as kids (college at the latest) and then make bridge into at least a partial career. We’re actually doing better getting kids into bridge now (with programs ...
