Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Walking into the local club at the tender age of 31 (1980) armed with 16-18 and Blackwood that I had gotten out of a book. In a few months I got to play with a decent standby and we won. The next week we won again. And then ..."What is this club bid you call Stayman and I'm worried about my clubs?". And we didn't win.
Bridge Accomplishments
Winning 2 events at an old sectional when they only had 4. I had 200 masterpoints. My team won the thu bam and my partner and I won the sat open paris. There were no strats or flights.

Alex Hydes's bidding problem: Axx K AKTxx Axxx
So many sublties in this auction. I could use 1 less final slam try.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AK32 KJT2 --- A9876
Maybe what useful space is about. You find out about hearts and spades before 2 instead of after. That space is not lost like it is after 2. So I don't know about impossible.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AK32 KJT2 --- A9876
I think we can always bail in 3N, so I like 1 1st in case using some space gets us to a good level and strain in a mj.
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: KT93 Q643 JT3 Q4
Possibly a lower % 8 hcp in honor dispersion. Put the 2 hcp for the Q somewhere else. How many times do you have a target of one of 2 suits headed by jack nothing. I'm not ready for 8 hcp is a bad Stayman bid. I will admit I ...
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: KQ7643 --- 953 9642
It seems to me the purpose of having 2-4 on the card is to accomodate partner's 3 because you can never have a hand this good. Bidding 2 seems to defeat the purpose of having 2-4 on the card. So I bid 1 rather 3.
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: KQ7643 --- 953 9642
Partner takes into account that with your agreements for 2, you can't possibly have as good a hand as you do. So if you bid again, I, being partner would assume that for a reason you are violating 2 agreements. I would be frustrated even if 4 spades ...
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AK32 KJT2 --- A9876
I feel better with what partner bids after 1 than 2.
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: KQ7643 --- 953 9642
So a hand came up this time where the cards around the table gave this hand the playing strength of an opening bid. I wouldn't count on it next time. If for some reason I have 4 hcp on my card, I would not bid 2 with this ...
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: AT32 98652 A952 ---
Info is needed. Much more likely to come leaving partner room over 2 to give it.
Allan Simon's bidding problem: AKJ8 AJ7 Q753 Q5
GSF for me came before RKC. And came up more often. I would say it is obviated on many auctions were RKC is available. Recently I had a relic partner that defaulted my 5N to GSF rather than pick a slam. I know of 2 strong players that a GSF ...
