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.

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Ray: In that case, they should be told that there is no agreement at all and that they should proceed on that basis, so that they don't substitute their own agreements.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
"Let's assume the partnership has no specific agreement about what a double of 7NT means and not even a meta-agreement that might apply. Then wouldn't pollees like Justin Lall be entitled to revert to bridge logic as to the various meanings of a double, a pass, and a ...
ATB - Poor slam
And one more bid in the mix (I agree with what others have said): West can bid 4D over 3NT to show the trick source and real diamonds. So basically there are four straight notrump bids that shouldn’t have been so you end up in a bad notrump contract.
Bill March's bidding problem: x ATxxx x KT9xxx
I’m in a very tiny minority obviously, but I think I’m willing to ignore the hearts and make a strong club raise. That’s the bid that should get partner excited. If we have a heart fit we aren’t going to get to play them anyway, because ...

“Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”
Missed (Grand) Slam
I’m probably boring and would have bid 2C-2H 2NT-4NT 6NT Or if you aren’t using 2H as a natural positive, slip a transfer in between 2NT and 4NT. I don’t love showing nine-fourth as a suit, though it works well when you hit partner with AKQx.
ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
I'm in enough trouble around here! There are multiple United Nations resolutions in the works concerning this bidding, that's all I'm at liberty to tell you.
Need ruling help please
Board not playable, A+/A- seems standard here.
ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
1D was impeccable given the system... and 2C was probably necessary given the system. Everything else was an atrocity except the final pass.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AK92 T3 AJ6 KQ63
I feel like 4S should be a 4NT call with interest in a minor. There’s no other earthly use for the bid.
