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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
James Huntington's bidding problem: --- J753 K87653 J64
I think bidding 3 is light. It's almost like how light? As light as I want it to be.
Zelig Rubenstein's bidding problem: A7 AQ8 7 AKQ9873
I don't think opening either 1 or 2 is the right thing. How do you know what is going to happen after either one? I have had some good auctions responding controls to 2. With 2 = 0 controls. Followup with 3 asking for 4-card ...
Please comment on the Ruling
I don't think the fact that East bid spades means that he should have been further required to protect his side by bidding hearts. Could the director have polled 2 or more players?
ACBL Club Department
Thanks Barbara. That doesn't sound like a good thing to me.
Please comment on the Ruling
Wouldn't an interpretation of the rules be that misinformation has been established? Now I think the director should try to get equity for what should have happened.
ACBL Club Department
Would it be too much to ask for names and capacity with which this decision was made?
Alan Schwartz's lead problem: Q97 J4 JT84 JT84
I got 3 top boards one day from leading clubs. I have gotten occasional great results. It seams like in close calls people don't lead clubs.
Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: A765 2 Q62 AK872
I don't bid because of Qxx.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J8 A86 A93 KQJ92
I play that responder does all the upgrading to make a mild slam try rather than a Texas Trans. When responder makes a trans, they don't know if opener is max or not. For me this hand is not max enough to bid over 4.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: --- AK986 J75 AQ432
You have had some special discussions for 2 over 1. I don't know what they were. Partner needs texture in 1 or both suits? With neither, don't bid 2? Having bid 2, how do you know the 3!N bidder doesn't have the ...
