|Comment||Thank you for the most excellent reply and especially for the great article you referred me to. As you may have guessed I had passed the 2D bid and my partner was upset. I did not realise my partner's point range could be as high as 18 ( thought maybe up to 16 ) and therefore felt a pass on a minimumish 7 points was in order. What I did not tell you was my partner had a big 19+ hand and 6 hearts and therefore I felt she had also misbid. I learned several good things here which I really appreciate. 1) opener's point count can be as high as 18 2) Responder should not use false preference with a minimum 3) the odds of 5 4 2 2 distribution are 23% and the others are around 5 or 6. 4) and other stuff Thanks Again Jack|
I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
