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.

Jealous of your result. For some(many) reasons not high on my horizon of expectations.

1 is surprising to me. Looks most important- does partner know? The opps? Why? Is a lot better answer than it's clear.

You can edit. I think in the 1st 24 hrs.

I don't play Ripstra and would guess very few do. But it looks good if it comes down to landing in 2 on this 3 suited hand or 2 on another. It just doesn't come up that often. Don't like Capp/Ham. I like Hello.

Ripstra might be even better. People's preferences on what to use for interference are likely to always be different. My preference with this hand is to show both majors rather than a single suited hand if I can with whatever I am using.

The hcp for one jack has more power in the laws than it can ever have in hand evaluation.

Can Common Law be a part of the laws. You can "get away" opening 2. But you might not get away with opening 1.
Jenish Shah's bidding problem: 752 842 4 AKQ742
Is opening 2 also illegal?

Advertising a single suit in hearts and playing in the safety of 2 doesn't have to be a likely result. If we advertise spades and hearts, how do they get to spades. Qbidding and passing?

The difference of 1 hcp is not a psych.
