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.

How do you play 1M X p 2M?
Paul, You aren’t wrong; I suppose I’d allow passing 2NT by either party that might bid it (after the two auctions that get there). Creep-crawling into an unpleasant but probably ok 4-3 fit in 3S is possible when the worst happens.
Failed attempt for a doubled overtrick
He did, but those are the best kind —so if you make such a play and weed out the others... One more reason to try it?!
You be the Comittee .
It’s not a great slam, so not getting there is no crime. I am mildly surprised that nobody tried. You need more overbidders.
You be the Comittee .
Ellis, A good post. My one quibble: “I gave the hand to the strong club players sitting NS and they had difficulty on a bid showing spades that was raided to 3 or 4 preemptively, even after they had defended the hand, and ostensibly knew it” That seems to put ...
