about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six. I played casually for the next 20+ years then joined the ACBL in my late 20s and have slowly but progressively grown more serious about bridge. Now in my mid 60s, I'm more enthusiastic than ever and still working to improve my game.

This was a very nice nationals. Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers. The caddies deserve a special mention.
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: AQT5 AQ84 KJ98 A
Both 4 and 4 fell like underbids, but I don't see anything better. I think 4 is less likely to lead to a good slam.
David Coles's bidding problem: K987643 --- K9 K762
I play 2 in this position as 12+ to 16hcp and a decent 6 card suit. This is pretty common, but not universal. This hand does have 7 spades and a side 4 card suit, but I don't think it qualifies. I'm not sure what a 3 ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: AT J83 AKQ75 Q52
My experience in weakish fields is that I'm much more likely to get a good board by picking up a trick in the play than by taking a minority view in the bidding. Therefore, I stick with the field unless I think my minority view is very clearly better ...
