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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Steven Allen's lead problem: AK82 T76 J962 75
Maybe RHO is one of the craftiest bidders ever. Spy vs spy or walking the dog. Maybe dummy has 9 and I need to lead T.
Christopher Donnelly's bidding problem: 5 AK97 Q6432 K83
I get the impression the OP was worried about making a -* (negative double). -* also means my typing thumb was saving energy.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KT93 KJ65 A 8752
No. Grounds for devaluation. And the comment "Aces are great for NT" occurs when they are, not when they aren't and take 1 trick amid a bunch of spaces.
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: Q953 T83 JT953 9
The inferences about the minors was made possible to S by Michaels qbid. It looks like they can even pass and bid 4 after West's 4.
Christopher Donnelly's bidding problem: 5 AK97 Q6432 K83
Agree. Make the -* and trust an experienced partner to get it when you pull a spade bid by them to dias.
Itzik Ezra's lead problem: J9872 62 K73 752
It seems like enough at least slightly exceptional things about this hand.
Dan Denison's bidding problem: --- 732 A932 KQJ942
Maybe not with SIX. And if my hand doesn't look it's good for being in anything else but my 7 card suit.
Michael Ranis's bidding problem: --- KJ73 JT863 Q932
I take my heart holding as a warning of collateral distributional issues. You can't get me to bid, even if the 2 bidder is never going to say double.
Phillip Martin's bidding problem: 2 AQ8 AQ9852 A62
I think I'm OK if partner bids again or passes.
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: Q953 T83 JT953 9
If any description includes lots of judgement to bid 3 or pass, I'll take it.
