Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB Another Missed Slam
If you lose a spade trick AND a club trick you may not succeed in slam.
Road to the GNT Final Four, R8 Q4
You can construct hands where it is wrong to play in hearts holding the nine-card suit. But I don't believe that anyone would actually do so. That said, even if you can determine that partner "probably" has no hearts, I can't imagine not bidding 6 hearts if you ...
Opener's rebid over 1NT in a 2/1 context
Semi-forcing means that you treat 1NT as a forcing NT except that opener will pass on a balanced dead minimum opening.
Road to the GNT Final Four, R8 Q4
On the 1-9-2-1 hand, many partnerships (including my own) have the agreement that a direct 4NT bid is Ace asking. Odds are that AKJTxxxxx will run for no losers, so the only thing you have to know for slam is whether partner has the two black aces. So, my auction ...
Who's side are you on?

Who's side are you on?
Starting with a cue bid will hinder your side if there is any further bidding by the opponents.
ATB Another Missed Slam
Kyle, it must be wonderful to live in your world where the outstanding 5 trumps always split 3-2 and the nine-card fit missing the Q always plays for 5 winners. Suffice to say that "more-or-less cold" is an overbid. Funny, when I re-read my post, it struck me as reminiscent ...
One hand makes the day worthwhile
Jordan: You are correct - we should probably assign another meaning to this bid when the Z bid is 1NT. It shows a balanced strong NT over any 1x-1y-1z even when the Z bid is 1 or 1. There is no need for it when the Z bid is ...
Bid this grand
Don: Why would you jump 2 levels to bid KC in diamonds? Establish a game force first. The double jump is exclusion for the last bid suit by my agreements. Craig: No doubt that it may be a problem on some hands. But the South hand (IMO) is just too ...
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
Unless I am mistaken, the NABCs are run by the ACBL, and Bermuda is part of the ACBL. The NABCs are not, strictly speaking, a Zonal championship.
