about me

Something a lot of people seem to forget is that Bridge is meant to be fun.

 

Every hand an adventure, every bid a thrill!

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How do you sort out this one?
Halmic is very common in weakNT-land and the explanation of runout to clubs would be partially correct, in that it asks partner to bid 2 for pass or correct. Of course, East would then correct to 2, after which West is probably not obliged to keep bidding. If ...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: Q Q9742 K98654 9
I'm happy enough with 2 on this hand as a fit non-jump.
Tricky hand?
With my Precision partner, the bidding might go... 1 (16+) - 1 (8-10 and some 5-card suit) 1 (what's the suit?) - 1NT (it's clubs) 2 (not interested, how about spades?) - 3 (spades suits me, I have some) 4 (cue) - 4 (cue) 7 ...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: T95 T64 --- AKQJ987

Failure to Announce
I also have one partner with whom we play a mini-nt. I've taken to announcing that as "10-12, although he sometimes opens light". That usually gets a chuckle.
Failure to Announce
If one fails to announce the no-trump range, all bidding ceases, while the other players sit there staring at you as though you're an idiot. Sometimes, I wave my hand and say, "the usual", which invariably prompts the question, "You mean 12-14?".
