Silver Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The walrus opens 1N. Then what?
I need something disgusting to downgrade a balanced 15. This hand has issues but does not qualify for the disgusting category. I would decline game vul at IMPS with this hand, nonVul at IMPs makes my job easier.
Vicki Gregory's bidding problem: AK95 5 9864 K964
Bob, I abstained from the problem because I will not play 1S as NF in this auction. New partner please.
James Tyner's bidding problem: KJ83 AQ2 AJ76 K9
I concur with Roland.
What is 4!C?
I thought 41C was Gerber:)
So, you're playing 2/1 with an expert partner with a not very extensive discussion period...
My issue is that I hate this situation because I want discussion about Serious/Non Serious 3NT if I am playing with a true expert. If expert does not play Serious/Non Serious 3NT, I want to know if they play Peg Kaplan(no extras, 2nd round control minimum denying ...
Grue-Moss Slam Bidding

Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AT A4 AT8 QT9542
To Eric, what is 2-Pass-2-Pass-2NT? If that sequence shows this hand, do that sequence. If that sequence does not show that hand, my vote is 1NT.
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
David, I agree. For those fortunate enough to watch the trials today, it was a blast.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
Like Ian, I abstained because Oren needs to put in the negative double agreement in the problem. If I had an agreement that X shows 4 or more spades and 1 denies 4 spades, I bid 1. If I had an agreement that 1 shows 4 more ...
Hampton and Marshall Win Silver Ribbon Pairs
Congrats to my fellow Oklahomans!
