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.

Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: K92 953 KT8 KQ76
My double means I have values. Partner can pass or bid.
André Marx's lead problem: 93 A9873 86 AK98
Do we have a partnership agreement for the A and K?
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK532 --- 53 A97432
My target is competing in spades first, clubs second. I'd like to be stronger to do it the other way.
Andreas Babsch's bidding problem: AQJ54 --- K75 AQ763
Partner's 2 makes my pass forcing. If partner doubles, my pull is slam going. 7?
Zachary Madden's bidding problem: AK85 --- J98732 K64
I can understand aggression toward being thrown into something unprepared. And my unvoiced opinion of people that are doing something like this. Maybe this can be remedied for their next opponents, after all it seems unfair not to have given the defenders a chance to get on the same page ...
A tough hand from a club night
There aren't enough matchpoints in any number of hands that make 11 tricks as there is joy in one hand that East gets in with the K and doesn't return a diamond.
A tough hand from a club night
This hand just being 1 example. East can't get out of his hand with a dia if he doesn't have any more. I think the probability of this or something similar happening with significance is greater than the probability of getting 11 tricks by taking the first dia ...
A tough hand from a club night
Can I have wishful thinking that the hearts aren't 3/3 and the spade king offside for the sake of a challenge?
A tough hand from a club night
Must not be the time to tie MP glutons. Whoopy for them if they beat me. I'm ducking the first dia. I'll tell you later what good that does.
Walter Schmid's bidding problem: A3 Q98 A984 K943
I think people oblivious to plobs use black magic. Otherwise NF ?xxxx ?xxx?
