Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Age - JUST a Number!
Dave Treadwell played at a high level right up to his death at age 97.
Use of UI
No, East explained the bid as 10-12 with spade shortness (I was Art's partner).
The Death of 4-Session KO's
Mike, in the recent Delaware Regional we had 5 teams in the top bracket on the day my team entered. We played an entire day to eliminate one of the teams. Our team lost in the semis and then won third place. In the third/fourth place match we played ...
Ivar Stakgold R.I.P.
So sorry to hear of Ivar's passing. I played quite a bit with him in Delaware when he came back to bridge after his first wife passed away. One highlight I remember was a 76% game we had in a Sectional Open Pairs. Echoing Richard Popper's statement above ...

Mike Cassel's bidding problem: AKT763 3 A62 AQ3

Mike Cassel's bidding problem: AKT763 3 A62 AQ3
A bit strong for 3S, I think. Partner needs only Qx, xxx, xxx, Kxxxx for slam to be odds on.
Marginal New Minor Forcing Hand
Bidding 2C allows you to get to 2S when partner has 3, or 2H when partner has 4, both better contracts than 1NT. Over partner's 2D you can bid 2S; most of the time he will have 2.
