Join Bridge Winners
Surviving with Weinstein

This week, I have had the pleasure of partnering Steve Weinstein at the Raleigh regional.  When discussing system before the tournament, we talked through more stuff than we probably needed to, but agreed to play 2/1, 5-Card Majors, and Flannery (of course).  Above all we agreed "We won't make bids to torture partner".

In the opening KO we reached the semi-finals and got to play 24 boards against Meckwell.  Now, I've played a lot of high-level bridge, so you would think that I might be used to sitting at a table across from Steve Weinstein, with Jeff Meckstroth on my left and Eric Rodwell on my right.  Nope. I am still like a little kid, in awe, taking in every moment of it.  

We had a really weird auction occur that left me guessing what Weinstein would think my bids would mean.

What should 3NT and pass mean? What will Weinstein think my 3NT or Pass would mean?

Pass is to play, 3NT is to play
