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.

Andreas Babsch's bidding problem: K76 AKJ5 7 KQJ53
My comments start out being about bridge. If it wasn't so human to react to being insulted, and somebody trying to use it for their own aggrandizement, it's not impossible to see an upside for Alinger, STern, ROsler, that I thought was neat 40 years ago. Like 99 ...
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: 96 5 KQT8 AJT542
The more thought, the less appeal for 2.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AK86 --- KJ75432 A8
Just in case swans don't play well in the swamp today.
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: JT9865 96 8 K874
Painful for everybody (oops). Always have to bid and never pass mentality.

Lynn, Your memory is bad. So is your comprehension. Try not asking other people to try thinking. http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-rvmpc0r6l3/
Sheng Li's bidding problem: AJ53 J862 JT42 3
I've seen many better "invites" than this more likely to take 8 tricks than 9 or 10. You can get your jollies in imps by inviting, and have partner bid and make about a 20% game.

Lynn, just don't make comments that other people can't think.

So extreme and reasonably? unexpected. Not as unexpected as LH being wrong and making unfortunate condescending comments that he can think and others aren't that smart. And his partner can figure out that he has this hand instead of xx AK32 xx AQTxx for an astro qbid.
Yusuf Sohtorik's bidding problem: A986 A 986 KT986
I prefer to play that a bid of 2 by partner over 1 is to play(SAYC). And Lho is still unlimited.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 97532 Q4 T AQJ97
I really like to double their NT in this position. It's more appealing with different dist. Then protecting a plus crossed my mind.
