Max Schireson's bidding problem: K2 KQJT9 J53 T92
1 has appeal in a strong system (eg Precision).
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
At least if partner bids 2, I have an honor for him...and 1NT rates to slow down the auction on what strikes me as a lesser hand.
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
xxxQ strikes me as a [i]more[/i] attractive 1NT rebid than the polled hand.
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
Point taken, I meant that bidding 4 would be inconsistent...and could/should have made [i]that[/i] clear.
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
"if west competes to 3H, then the UI restriction is off and east is free to bid up to 4H." That would be inconsistent, leaving no way for the partnership to play 3. OTOH, if W did something more than "compete to 3", ie make a further game ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: K2 KQJT9 J53 T92
There is a lot to be said for opening 1 or 2, but "pretty standard" isn't...YMMV
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
Presumably when one opens 1, one is committed to 1 action at this point. The question is whether there is more than one action that various people are committed to...I would guess yes, I can see 3 (flawed) rebids that [i]might[/i] be chosen.
Conflict of Interest
"I don't see anyone getting rich from online bridge." I wouldn't conclude that nobody [i]is[/i] getting rich from that statement...YMMV
Conflict of Interest
"What's wrong with the ACBL benefiting financially?" Nothing, nothing at all. But why make it look otherwise?
Conflict of Interest
"ACBL is not keeping any of the fee." This strikes me as technically true, but misleading -- the ACBL [i]is[/i] benefiting financially.
