Beyond over the hill but not hope.

Cherish BW discussions.

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.

Zoran Zoric's bidding problem: --- A984 984 AQJT75
Surely we still don't have to preempt the spades some more.
David Corn's bidding problem: A965 T KQT876 98
200 vs 150? Not everything plumbs the depths in the ocean of your imagination.
The Best Bridge Writer
So many books are the best at the time you're first reading them and some you just say wow!! and some you study. And then they wear down a little.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 5 AKQ7 AKJ3 Q974

David Parsons's bidding problem: A9843 AT432 T9 2
May be better than nonsense. Don't want agreement. Just indexing my univote.
Daryl Fisher's bidding problem: Q754 J KT52 K974
Is it that my hand is too good to double 2?
Ilya Kuzkin's bidding problem: AJ7643 --- AQ765 A9
This hand has playing strength distribution in spades that makes up for defensive expectations vs hearts. Bidding distribution is catching on.
Jim Houghton's bidding problem: JT42 9875 J3 987
You might prefer what happens to you after you back into a meat grinder over what happens to you if you back in here.
Paul Gipson's bidding problem: 854 975 A6 JT876
I love it. Except if you have to be WC to think. When distribution trumps hcp. When an auction starts with distributional advertisement, shift gears. Away from hcp toward fit. You can't always do something about what happens on the side. West got caught selling to <4. South ...
Jim Houghton's bidding problem: AQJx xx KJx xxxx
What you would do originally is not an answer to this poll. It is an answer to a different poll. Abstain if you must. But either answer this poll or don't.
