Sleight of Hand / Re: SLAM-SEEKING after STAYMAN
« on: May 24, 2020, 12:45:29 PM »
Todd,
Thanks for this and the attached Baze primer. Some questions:

Who was Baze?  Or is it an acronym?

The primer shows 1N - 2C - 2H - 3S as a heart fit with a void or stiff in a suit to be named later
If the jump to 3S is Baze, what is a non-jump in the other major (1N-2C-2H-2S))?

Thanks.

700. I'm cool with that.
I don't bother with BWS, I just bid what I would actually bid. 
The only answer I would change is F.  I said 4S. 3nt is the better bid there.   
However 3S came in second place and I think that bid is chickensh#t.  4S came in 3rd and got 70 pts, but should be the 90 pointer.

I scored only 600
A double  80 (why not tell pard we have exactly four spades and opening pt count? 2S was my 2nd choice but panel's first
B 4D       30 (why not look for "serious" slam? we have a double fit and can always stop of at 5 if needed)
C 2D       60   (yes I reverse, KnR agrees w/17.65 pts..also 2D shows my correct hand pattern)
D 2C      100
E  1S       90  I'm with Curls.  If 1NT pard will never ever believe I have five spades
F  Pass    80  If pard has the cojones to X their 4H we ought to set this at matchpoints for a + score
G (b3)    70 
H  H6      90
