Your preferred inverted raise style opposite an unbalanced 1!D opening
I'm not sure why playing the inverted raise as invitational plus would matter, as long as you only eschew bidding the major on hands that were willing to gameforce. Then a sequence like 1 2 / 2 3 is gameforcing, since responder would have started with ...
Your preferred inverted raise style opposite an unbalanced 1!D opening
I must admit I'm surprised by the overwhelming support for 'never'. I don't have a strong feeling about when raising would be better (hence this post), but it seems to me like there are several fairly foreseeable downsides of starting with 1M that would justify doing it *sometimes ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: AKJxxx Ax QT9x x
My hypothesis, that I'm still probing, is that a) you often want to pattern out on the minor suit fits since 3N might still be the right spot, and b) the void hands are sufficiently harder to deal with that they gain in expectation what they lose in frequency ...
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: AKT643 A9 --- QJ963
We'd be unlucky to go off in 5 (partner having neither the A, K or A or a stiff heart for his values-showing bid), so I'd just re-cue diamonds.
Peg Kaplan's lead problem: 32 T T9xx A98xxx
I think declarer's 6 was silly. What's wrong with a good old fashioned 5N?
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: K5 QT7 KQ6 K9853
I like 3 not in case P can pass it, but because we're not making unless he has the A, so if I deny values in the suit he should cue 3 only if he has some, then I can bid 3N with a reasonable expectation ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 97 T53 J943 J642
The same thought went through my head at the time, though I wonder if it does make sense to play it that way - with a decent spade stop and any kind of other values I'd have responded 1N, and with a spade stop and nothing else it would surely ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: A3 AQJ7 AKQ5 K85
There isn't really a standard version - there seem to be as many Fantunes variants as there are Fantunes partnerships. The NT rebid structure is irrelevant here anyway
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 97 T53 J943 J642
I'm not really sure about the margins, since oddly it's quite a rare sequence :P The minimum I would expect opener to have to even think of Xing is something like x AQJx AQx AQxxx. But I don't think it would be right to X into a ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 97 T53 J943 J642
Maybe. It seems likely to have almost no play if responder doesn't have the KH, though, whereas 4 might be making opposite a suitable Yarborough. I'll post it as a separate problem.
