Favorite Bridge Memory
When asked by the director of 2003 NABC+ Fast Pairs if I am sure that I deserve a seed and I said probably since we won the event last year.

ATB - Missed Game
This is an example of the "30 point deck". When N opens 1, East doubles, and South raises to 2, West knows that East will be real short in . Hence, the important HCP are the 30 HCP in //. West holds 6 working HCP, an ...
Cute Ending
You are not understanding what I meant by reading the table feel. East (the weaker player according to your comments) did not win the A and immediately shoot back the 9, did they?
Cute Ending
I do not believe for one second that this West would have picked the 7 first time through (their highest spot) from QJ742. I have no doubt that you could have read the "table feel" and been 100% confident that East held the 4. The reality is that ...
Cute Ending
I would have never wasted the 9 on the 3rd round of . You knew (based on how weak these opponents were and their spots played so far) that East held the 4 and could not overruff dummy.
Steve Weinstein's lead problem: A9654 AQ5 8 AQ95
Surprised how many times Q lead from AQx is right against 3nt. Have led it 5 times in the past, and it always gained or broke even for the defense. This hand seemed promising for the Q lead.
Weak Stayman
I play the same general principles/methods as John states. The only comment that I strongly disagree with is the statement: "On average 4-3 is worse than NT". I have found the opposite to be true. With 44 in Majors and
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: 8 JT8765 --- T87654
2 is illegal on 1 HCP
Is there a path to 6!C?
Depends on what methods you are playing, and how aggressive E/W decide to be. One possible uncontested auction by E/W (assuming East deals and N/S remain silent since you did not mention them bidding) if East bids 1nt instead of 1 at their 2nd turn (perhaps ...
Tiers of National Championship Events at NABCs
Agree in principle with the idea of separating NABC events into different tiers. However, I see some areas of strong disagreement with your choice for some of the events and what tier they would fit under. As an example, winning the NAP open flight carries nowhere close to the same ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AJ98732 52 98 74
I rebid 3 and played it there. There was some risk that partner was real short in and the hand may go down 1, 2, or even 3 in 3. I decided that even if South had a fair hand for defending 3, they may not ...
