Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Q9532 AJ642 J KQ
2. This may look like an obvious 4 splinter. However, for a slam the most important thing is what partner has in hearts rather than whether they have the ‘right’ diamond holding.
Bas Van Der Hoek's bidding problem: KQJT98 --- A7543 42
I have a special opening bid for hands like this: 4, six spades and five+ in either minor, 4–5 losers (a variation of Robins Nest, using 4/ only).
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
You can play 1-3 as invitational with six+ clubs. Personally I play (and prefer) 1-3 as a mixed raise in diamonds (around 7–9 HCP), with 1-3 as a truly weak raise. Exactly invitational hands with six+ clubs are somewhat rare; we may indeed ...
BW 2/1: After 1!d-2!c
I play ‘Something else’: * 2 shows six+, does not deny four / * 2/ shows four, unbalanced, no six+ diamonds (does not show extras) * 2NT shows any balanced minimum (responder bids four /) Higher rebids do not correspond to anything in the poll. All this is ...
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
I like weak jump shifts at the two level, dislike them at the three level.
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
You can easily play 1-2 unconditionally forcing to game if you play 1-2NT as natural and passable, around 11 HCP.
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
1M-2m-2X-3m not forcing may look smart but is not. Hands suitable for the sequence are relatively rare, while game-forcing hands with a long suit are much more frequent and would then be hard to show (which is not the same as keeping the bidding forcing).
Bidding problem What is your guess?
No problem if you play Transfer-Walsh.
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
I have said it before: I have been in four of a minor making six or seven all too often. That is when I wanted to set the suit and prepare for cue-bidding, ace-asking and the like – only to find partner passing. Down one in five of a minor is ...
Bidding problem What is your guess?
If you play that any strong (17/18–19/20) balanced hand opens 1, as more and more players do, you can use 1-1-2NT as just this ‘Death Hand’: six+ diamonds and three spades, invitational or better.
