Beyond over the hill but not hope.

Cherish BW discussions.

I like thoughtful comments and apolitical analysis.

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.

Thibault Wolf's bidding problem: 872 Q532 865 982
The penalty doubler is in the direct seat over the xx. How can he know that Lho has a penalty pass and partner has the pull?
Who Will Qualify for the Bermuda Bowl KOs?
I think many didn't have China. They could win it? They have the power of numbers. Like 7 billion butterfly sneezes.
Help Newer Players Reach Slam
Aha! That explains some of the things they do. Some day bots will have to take an oath not to harm humans.
Tolga Pezük's bidding problem: AJx Qx Axxxx Axx
I think Lynn should start a poll and try to prove there is anything sustainable in his position other than using BW like a house pet to get attention. He can also get into what David, Kieran, and Michal do other than comment on BW.
A diffferent kind of play problem
I'm going to lead the Q, they're both going to duck it. Then I play the Q.
Help Newer Players Reach Slam
I'm glad to see answer #1 has taken over #1 of all answers. So West underbid - twice. I think it is important for a partnership to have a bid like 3 to say my t/o* is so strong over the top. Newcomers can have excitement bidding their ...
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: Q9732 A42 J4 982
Nice hand. But I prefer a little more or singleton for a mixed raise. If it's too strong for 3, then I bid 2.
Thibault Wolf's bidding problem: 872 Q532 865 982
I play that West CANNOT pass the 1st time. But starts escape with 2 looking for 4/4 or 4/3 fit. It seems like a must agreement. Now it's just like John says.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: KQ A7 AK9853 KJ5
2-2 in the mjs is known to be a flaw for opening nt. Compound that with the spade and dia holding could make this a 1 opener.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: KQ A7 AK9853 KJ5
I play that partner is likely to have ~xx for his double. I don't like just rebidding just 4. Maybe partner can bid 6. If partner passes 3, my spade holding makes it look like I shouldn't double. So I can pass or bid 4.
