Jonathan Cohn's bidding problem: 5 KQJT86 AKQ4 43
I didn't think long enough at the table and started 3 which lead to 5 after some competition. Its much easier to get to the cold 6 if I start with 4.
Jonathan Cohn's bidding problem: 4 JT765 QT8765 8
Partner had the 9 trick hand with clubs. I got this wrong. Next time!
Strong Club Recommendations?
I am a huge fan of system stuff and started playing a big club very early in my bridge life. That being said, I don't think I'd recommend it for most advancing players. Here are some reasons not to play Precision: 1. Mentors. There are lots of bridge ...
Strong Club Recommendations?
If you are new to Precision, I would recommend either the Berkowitz-Manley book "Precision Today" or the Dan Neil Book "Standard Modern Precision". Both lay out basic systems and then in later chapters give you some more complex options. SMP is based on Meckwell Light. https://www.amazon.com/gp ...
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: AQ2 T72 J542 953
I doubled because partner and I have agreed the delayed double here is penalty. If I didn't have an agreement or double was take out, I would pass.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: AK7 63 J7532 Q97

Not Losing Money on NABCs
The ACBL could target players who play regularly in non-NABC games with some kind of a coupon for a discounted entry at the NABC. No need to target Michael Bodell or Jonathan Cohn, but aiming to bring in Joe Club and Mary Sectional who haven't attended an NABC seems ...
New bridge software: Complete Bridge Database
I have been using this software and it is impressive. The finished product is much more polished than I expected and the front end that allows searching the database is well done. For searches of specific auctions by partnership it is very fast. A search for all 1C-1D-1H auctions by ...
Gold Rush
Perspective is important. The best players at the clubs I attend are not very competitive in open NABC events.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AJT8542 A J AK42
I immediately grab for rho's convention card and and simultaneously ask in disgust if they are playing 4-card majors. Whatever they say, I pass irritably. Partner should understand I have decent spades if I bid them later, or if partner has a close call on whether to double back ...
