Pair looking for pair for Columbus
I have a 10K Swiss team; My partner & I were looking for a 10K KO team, but we may have settled on the IMP pairs. I can ask. I have placed first, second, and third in the 10K Swiss; and 1st and 2nd in the 5K/6K Mini-Spingold. I will be looking on my own for a Jacoby team at the site. Corona virus worries will affect attendance. We will see how it goes.
Bidding after new suit by opener.
Yes, it's a trick question. The BEST WAY "to keep the bidding open with a big hand and show 6+ of a major and look for slam" is to start with a strong jump shift 2. The way to get there after the given auction I will leave ...
Nadav Trumer's bidding problem: KQJ7642 Q8 K653 ---
4. I would not change any previous call. My hand is not really out of the ordinary. We may still end up in 4S, hard to get to over 5D. But pard may be 5-7 or some such in the minors. I just bid what I got.
Nadav Trumer's bidding problem: KQ QJ5 KQT3 KQ98

Partner for Senior Swiss in Vegas
Would if I could, Craig, but I'm playing in the Mini-Spin starting Tuesday.
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
I am addicted to both bridge and caffeine. If rules required me to quit either one the withdrawal pains would be severe.
Looking for IMP Pairs partner in Memphis.
Thanks for your interest. I do have a partner now. I am traveling around South America and not online much, so I didn't get back to you sooner.
Can you spot the double dummy solution?
BBO also has a double-dummy solver. Click MyBBO/hands and results/hand editor. Type in your hand and the GIB tab at the bottom will tell you the DD result of each card played.
Looking for partner for Honolulu NABC
Hi Brett, I have been talking to a potential partner for the 10K IMP prs Mon-Tue, not set in stone yet. I also want to try the NABC Swiss the last weekend. Please look at my convention cards here on bridgewinners. You'll notice I play a simple (especially by ...
Master Points for Foreign Players
Mike They had originally expunged Mr Lebioda from the winning roster and stripped his MPs, that is when my team first heard of it. We objected to that; we did not want to go on record as losing to that team without him. Our district pressed the case that the ...
