1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
I have played them and don't dislike them, but I *do* like getting straight into my 2NT LROB structure on all limit raises. But the main reason I wouldn't give them serious consideration at this point is that Craig and David have convinced me that the subinvitational spade ...
How are people playing this Double these days?
Purely partnership agreement.
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
We now have a way to handle this as well, though opener can short-circuit it if holding 6 spades. For you, does opener break the transfer when holding 6 spades?
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Thanks, David. You and Craig have me nearly on board. Can you tell me a bit more about the 1H-1S-2R-2S forcing school? What's the invite with 6 spades and what's the GF? Does 2S show 6 for you? (I think I can deal with 5-5s another way. It ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
If I may press you on this (I'm genuinely curious), will you really pass 1H with a heart single, a spade 6-bagger, and a 3-count? And if not, what will you bid with it? 2, widening the range, or the 1 that denies you the possibility of ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Thanks for the example hand, David. Do you have a solution to my question about making the 1 - 2 bid so wide-ranging?
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Interesting link. Thanks, Steve. I believe that Gazzilli largely takes care of the Sparts problem for us, but this is interesting to consider. We play lots of fit bids, so that came to mind as a possible use, too, but doesn't seem so necessary here. Sub-invitational non-fit would work ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Interesting (if I cleared the 6 spade sub-invites out with this, I could show the 5-5s using the bid they would have taken). But how wide a range would this have? If I had 6 spades and short hearts, I might try to improve the contract with very, very little ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
Following up now on the question as to whether/when to pull a weak 2 response to Gazzilli. I grouped the main potential 2 responses (5 hearts with short spades, 6 hearts with <3 spades, and the 1=4=5=3), and 2 makes a little less ...
Seeking Help with Some Problem Hands for Gazzilli
I ran the stronger hands: 8-9 HCP with 1=4=5=3 or 1=5=5=2 shape. 1=4=5=3 unsurprisingly continues to be a problem holding, and the three suit contracts (2, 3 and 3) that are in the running are still close to ...
