Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
4S IMPs play
I would firstly suggest you change the title to play 4... My cardplay is somewhat simplistic so I am winning, spades and taking the ruffing hook. The deceptive duck is interesting but a diamond switch must be clear to East
Missing Aces and Micro-Moysians
Hey, thanks for the hands and hope you are keeping well. Regarding the hands I remember watching the first one on vugraph: Declarer 1: Got the switch and squeezed correctly for +400. Declarer 2: Got the continuation. Drew some trumps and played the K and to ...
Doubling BPH
I was once told GF stood for something other than Game Force. I didn't believe them...
ATB - aggressive slam bidding
I agree with your assessment mostly. Over 5 I might have bid 6. Grand is not so far away as you say opposite a presumed monster and it is more helpful than 5 perhaps? I think your 5 bid almost sums up your view on the ...
ATB - aggressive slam bidding
It seems Kit and I posted relatively similar things at the same time. (So much for my original comment :( ) @Robert: It is subjective as we are into partnership understandings and player preferences. Some people on this thread think 1NT = fine, ok, and terrible. The definition of subjective. People whip K ...

Doubling BPH
I.e as per or similar to P-(1)-P-(2)-2. Yes this makes some sense. Also quite like the 3055 option people are proposing.
Doubling BPH
Both the example hands given would be opening hands for a lot of people. Myself included. @Peg: My view on it is a pure T/O is 4144 etc. Offensive values might include some off-shape hands. Axxxx, x, Axxxx, xx for example where you don't want to bid 4 ...
Is there a path to 6!C?
6 is a push regardless. However, it is much easier to bid if East opens.....
