Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making 6HX-6 for -1400 at a Year End Congress. My partner was declaring, but we both agreed afterwards it was I who got us there.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Best Approach?
Depends on the major. Opposite 1H, I like it to show spades. Which, I suppose, isn't actually ruled out by the "forcing" option.
Is this alertable (T-Walsh)

Another useless poll

How do you play this sequence
Hum. I play transfers over the club, so that's just an invitational hand with long diamonds, but if we ignore systemic contortions I think I play it as longer diamonds than spades with invitational values.
The real reason Bridge is on the decline
"Europeans don't have to work quite as hard as we do. But before Europeans get too complacent keep in mind that most social trends originate in North America and eventually migrate to Western Europe (examples: informal forms of address, non-smokers rights, attitudes toward women and minorities, etc.) It's ...
Today's problems were yesterday's problems too
They also recommend not bidding the grand on those hands because there might be a 4-0 heart break, making it only slightly more than a 90% slam. Well, if the KS in South's hand is actually a low one then it's a bit worse, but they've given ...
