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.
Everyday situation
Not necessarily a super-relevant question. Something like QJx/KJx or so with some outside values would be ideal.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KQT 965 KQT6 AT6
What else was partner to do with xx Jxxx Axxxx xx?
Everyday situation
Penalty, but not based on a trump stack. I just can't imagine doubler having a hand that is supposed to pull if they had their first bid (no,4045 doesn't qualify)
David Corn's bidding problem: T652 AQ65 74 AQ8
Responsive doubl-- oh.
Help with UDCA Discarding please-This Month's Bridge World
The next time I see a suggestion that someone is being (even "somewhat") unethical for playing a system that is legal under the rules and is disclosing it in the manner prescribed by their regulating authority, I'm gonna bust a cap in someone.
When things don't go as planned...
I wonder, if East manages to pitch four spades and three diamonds smoothly enough, if declarer can figure it out. (He probably can, given the jack and ten...)
Stolen Cue
Steven, I assume he meant "on the auction where they continue to 3S", because that's when a western Q is no longer available.
Double is?
What if partner heard you double the first time and just wants to play two undoubled hearts (usually because everything else is worse)?
Stolen Cue
First one's penalty, second one is responsive for me. If you want to play them, then I guess you can do so with the second case; Jeff sums up why it's a poor idea in the first case.
Play 3NT
I think we're a tempo behind (if we had bid 2 partner would be playing this 3NT, and RHO might not have led a heart).
