about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.


Then kids happened. 


Now we don't play much.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Guess the swing!
Lose three, the jack of spades was originally South and the diamond ace was originally North.
Protection ?
Meh, as others have pointed out, this may be closer than I thought.
Protection ?
Score stands, mostly because even assuming all the stuff about UI is found to be in E-W's favor, they're not making 5H (no, they're not dropping the stiff king offside), so they have a better score in 5S than they would in 5H, so they weren't ...
What's My Range?
Well, with Jx AKxxx KQxx Kx I'd quite possibly have opened 1NT; if I didn't it's because I judged I should treat the hand as unbalanced, and I don't think partner's 1NT bid does a lot to dissuade me from that (maybe it should!). One ...

I would think any reasonable East would see through this.
What's My Range?
Ronald, let's assume we would open 1NT with a five card heart suit. What shapes would rebid notrump here instead of a second suit, that wouldn't open 1NT in the first place if in range?

It felt important to keep the spade stopper in hand (dummy could come under some theoretical pressure), but maybe it isn't. I suspect given this is the intermediate forum the main point is to not get all happy that diamonds came in and cash them all, squeezing ourselves to ...
What's My Range?
Ronald, it's highly relevant. If we can't have a balanced 15-17 with five hearts, then this shows some other hand. We won't have six hearts (we'd rebid some number of hearts), and we won't likely have a four card side suit because we can bid ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 5 87543 AK763 AK
It's not quite so bad as that; partner with like Q9xx of spades and a doubleton diamond means we're beating this, possibly a couple if we can get a club ruff too. I think this is going down more often than not, mostly because partner doesn't know ...
100% of the match points depend on your play(2nd trick)
Depends what their responses are to 4NT, don't it?
