Jump Cue Bid after Negative Double
1heart - 1spade 3diamonds does not promise longer diamonds. However if opener rebids diamonds, he can't have six hearts and could easily have more than five diamonds. If you play that 1diamond opener denies five hearts, you can have the auction 1dia - 1sp - 2hts - 2sp - 3ht to show a hand ...
Jump Cue Bid after Negative Double
This hand is the reason why one should open 1heart with five hearts and seven diamonds. If partner has heart support he shows it right away. If partner does not have primary heart support, you know that you will play in diamonds. If you have six hearts, you'll rebid ...
Jump Cue Bid after Negative Double
I play five-card majors so I would have opened 1heart
Best use of 2NT here
choice of suits. x/xxxx/Qxxx/Jxxx for instance
BW 2/1: Opener's Reverse
With a game-forcing hand, Responder should NEVER NEVER respond 1spade holding only four spades. The auction 1heart - 1spade - 2diamonds leads to many complications. Obviously, if 1heart - 2clubs- 2hearts shows six hearts, then 2spades does not show extras. However, if 2hearts can be bid with only five, I think that its ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
I think that after 1sp - 2any, 2sp could be bid with five. However, if you play that 2spades shows six, I think its important that a raise to 3spades should show three. Jxxxxx opposite two is not slammish. However, it is opposite three. So if you want to raise spades ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
If you're playing a forcing club, then 1heart - 2clubs - 2hearts should show six. However, in a generic 2/1 system if you have xxx/AJxxx/xxx/AK, it is anti-positional to rebid 2NT and 2diamonds should show four. I think that its easier to defend 3NT if opener plays ...
Upside down count question
I have no idea who first decided that you should return original fourth best but that is not right. You should return attitude. If you started with A8732, win the ace and return the two. If you return the three partner might think that you started with A32. If you ...
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
This happened at the Washington Bridge League Unit 14 table Board-a-match A/X game. The game would have been bigger but the Washington Nationals were playing the deciding baseball game that night.
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
The opponents who had 1/5 the masterpoints of this pair did not call the Director. (neither did this pair)
