Incidentally, that looks like a very entertaining session with several interesting hands. Perhaps you might consider posting, inter alia, Hand 7 from the other table (after Multi-2 opening) as well?


As requested...



IMPs scoring, all vul. Assume double is a big hand or a weak NT with all other overcalls being natural (and jumps are strong), what do you do here?

Sandra Landy (no relation to Alvin) was known for the 'Landy game try' - bid game, and try to make it.

I think I prefer 6 to X here. The problem with X is that you're very unlikely to have some intelligent auction to figure out if 6 is on. Even if it doesn't come back to you at 4, it might come back to partner at 5 the second time around. If you're going to have to guess anyway, you might as well guess in a way that also forces the opponents to guess whether to bid 6 or not.

And no matter what methods you play, it is essential, for anyone aspiring to learn to be a good player, to learn the importance of bidding shape properly. - MikeH

SLOW DOWN! This is not a speedball :)

There is a local player who has this sort of game try named after him, you also have the equivalent game invite, where you bid game and invite partner to make it.

Hi,

X, followed by 5H.

They may sac in 6S, but I have no idea, if 6H makes, so I may get more than game.

With kind regards

It won't come back to you at 4, this is a multi, massive odds LHO passes or bids 2 if you double thinking his partner has hearts, then opener will bid 2 if partner doesn't get in the way. Any bounce will take place between you and partner next time.

5 = Exclusion Blackwood, in this auction?
If so it would do the trick.

Just curious, I realise OP specified all natural.

I've never played Multi, but shouldn't one of P or XX show spades by responder? Or 2H can show spades and one of P and XX can show neither? The X gives responder a free option; the system should allow them to take advantage of it.

P suggests playing in diamonds (particularly if the weak 2 can be 5 cards), XX suggests a whale with some diamonds and taking some money out of something, or did when I played a multi, 2 is any other hand that wouldn't raise hearts and 2 is a heart raise.

Typically Pass offers as a suit to play in and either i) XX asks Opener to bid their suit and bids are natural; or ii) the X is ignored with 2 being P/C and XX showing an unknown suit to play in. Maybe you could expand on your idea to produce something better?

3h (assuming strong means at least 1 round force). This will give me the scientific edge of 5s as exclusion. If 3h is not forcing then I will opt for x and hope we can sort things out later.
