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.

If we restricted the respondents to members at my local club... ')
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: KQ5 A3 AQ AT9842
I think I might have opened this 2NT - I'd feel a little better about Passing this now.
Gábor Szőts's bidding problem: 63 QT5 AJ7 JT986
I am wary of side 332 shape with five trumps. NV, would bid.
Stefan Olausson's bidding problem: QJ84 AQJ6 T62 QJ
probably it means 5 in the majors, 4 for diamonds, clubs could be as short as two. And I don't get this problem either.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 4 QT982 83 86542
I don't get it.
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: --- QJ95 Q9632 KJ92
I am very wary of vulnerable cowards.
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: KT7 T75 AJT2 AT7
We must? Whatever partner leads, I will like.
Adam Lally's bidding problem: KQ842 K87 T986 J
I'm a little wary of 'death seat' actions, especially vulnerable, but this barely is worth a call IMO.
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: A8652 AT753 A53 ---
A favorite partner and I have adopted a Granovetter-like (at least in his 1996 book) 'choice-of-games' approach to 4 (here that cuebid implies at least a club tolerance, so it's not ideal). If partner rebids 5 we can always hope that the clubs are self-sufficient, and we ...
