Roland Wald R.I.P.
I had hoped Roland could retire on the fabulous wealth acquired via his tireless commentating, but I can make due with how much he enriched the lives of all of us instead.
Roland Wald R.I.P.
What a shock. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. Roland was a true gentlemen of our bridge world. He was a friend to me and to everyone who knew him and to the tens of thousands who heard his calm, civilized voice explaining the nuances of expert ...
Richard Unger's bidding problem: KQxx Qx 6532 642
If partner overbid that is his problem not mine. It isn't my job to zag because he might have zigged. Bid your own hand. Let him bid his.
Richard Unger's bidding problem: KQxx Qx 6532 642

Bill March's bidding problem: AKT6 AK976 8 AQ4
6 is the probable final contract, but there is no harm in checking back. Opposite the right moderate hand the grand will be good: Qxxxxx, xx, Axx, xx

What is your bidding plan?
auction 1, bid 3 vul at imps and pass otherwise. auction 2, 3 F to offer COG auction 3, pass opposite 4-7, bid game opposite 8-11 auction 4, 3 F to offer COG auction 5, 2. Partner could still have 8-10 HCP auction 6, 3 ...
Martian Standard Defense to Big Club
Hi Tom, That sounds like a reasonable defense with good thinking behind it. However, I wonder if it can be improved. What if you used 1N,2C and 2D as the crash bids. 1 could become 6-cards in one of the minors and 1 opens for another use ...
