about me

Starting playing seriously 8 years ago, although I learned when I was 8 years old. Play mostly professionally now as well as teach online. I have recently returned to school to complete my degree in Economics and I am also completing my Options trading certification. Would like to become an options trader although bridge will always be a huge part of my life.

What should your aim here be?
We lose 1 Diamond 1 club and 3 Hearts. Looks like down 1 on 5-3 Hearts to me.

IS MY PARTNER INSANE FINAL PART
The problem is they lead a spade, when the finesse loses the lead is with west, who cannot attack clubs profitably.
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
I just don’t understand your argument; you want people to continue playing a match out of courtesy, yet not feel pressured into it, otherwise they would be playing bridge when they would rather not. But you can’t have your cake and eat it to. Either we accept people ...

IS MY PARTNER INSANE? PART 3
My guess is partner has something like AKxx x AKQx AKxx.
