about me

Player for 40 years. Work and other interests (golf, tennis, poker, and recently pickleball) have curtailed my play, and I wish I had the chance to play more. I do teach 'intermediate' bridge regularly. It might be apt to describe myself as more 'student of the game'. One immutable fact about bridge I have learned - bridge teaches about life.

commentating on other table
I voted 'OK' but if I want to be in suspense I'll just turn the volume down. If the commentators were not permitted to discuss 'other table' issues, that's fine too.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AQ54 AT7 7 AT854
Double, or 1 if it's been discussed as four spades and longer clubs. I prefer the latter but I think I may be the only player in my circle that thinks this way.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: K984 T73 T74 654
I prefer John's diamondless Double to what transpired. I would have doubled 1 with Phil's construction, but that's just me.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AQ4 KQJT753 A94
Could not partner have a string of clubs and out?
Gonzalo Guridi's lead problem: KJ7 K62 J4 J9654
Is this a test to see how serious I was before when I almost led the K? :)
Winston Chang's bidding problem: J4 K5 AK9742 T92
If I had an invitational 3 before, what was I waiting for? A stronger hand? Surely there is no gap between 'invitational' and 'game force'. 1NT IMO was silly if I had the tools given in the description. Sorry if that was harsh.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AQ4 KQJT753 A94
Passing just doesn't feel right to me, but I'm vacillating between Double and 4. I'll go for Double now, and decide later what to do if partner bids 4. I admit I might bid 4 and not Double tomorrow.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 9853 96 T4 QT872
I don't think this close. Jim is right - partner is asking us for something that looks like a trick and I have several tidbits that resemble that description.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AK92 A865 AT2 96
Anything is a stopper if the suit blocks :)
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K765 QJ83 6 Q932
For all I know partner has three diamond tricks and West is messing around. Double just has too many ways to win.
