about me

Two years (as of 3/2017) into my return to bridge after decades of inactivity.  Had an excellent Nationals in KC, qualifying for the final day of the NAOP (I wasn't alowed to play since I played with Kay Joyce who filled in for my partner) and the final day of the Silodor (but they didn't notify me until after game time and they didn't advise me that I should hang around the room until nearly game time so we didn't play), and made the overalls of the Lebhar.

United States of America

Movement Question
17 table web is by far the best.
Transfers after Transfers or Transfer Extensions
Yes, Steve, in my weak NT partnership we more or less do the same thing. And we extend it to 55 majors via 1NT-2, 2-3 which is at least invitational with 5-5 majors.
Jim Griffin's bidding problem: 4 KJ6 AK8 987432
1NT - maximizes the chances of coming out of this auction alive. Also does a much better job of preempting their spades than 1 does. Would make an inverted raise if it was not forcing to game and if partner's subsequent 2NT shows a weak NT without 4.
Walter Schmid's bidding problem: JT9 K9843 --- AKJ98
My 4 responses to J2NT are two top honors 5th or better. That's what I've got, that's what I bid. With weaker 5-card side suits, I just show my shortness.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: A763 AK8 JT54 Q3
Weak notrumps with a top honor in their suit should not act over preempts in direct seat. If partner has a weak notrump, too, he can balance.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: A QTxx AKQxxx Ax
I don't think I have enough defense to X. I think I have enough offense to risk the 5-level, and I'm not sure that if I bid 5 here partner will feel comfortable about correcting to hearts with xx Jxxxx xx Kxxx. So 4NT wins. Besides, I ...
A bad start
I am sure personalities and friendship (or lack thereof) would enter into the equation. But they shouldn't. The game has rules. Also it should probably be noted that had you given a takeback, it would have been a very minor VP change, as you guys simply had a great ...
A bad start
N would be making the 4th pass if S had passed over 4, so he must be aware that partner had bid (or that W had doubled and the red card is sort of noticeable).
ATB - No Double, No Game
What Henry says. Also note that, when playing Flannery with Flannery, our agreement was that 3 preempts were more like top-end weak 2's. Even still, it's easy for E to project 1=3=6=3 opposite with N 4=4=1=4; then beating 5 at ...
Critique This Auction with Satan
And of course you also considered the fact that Satan is a Sadist.
