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.

Play problem
Why did North not raise 2 to 3 and set ? Were you not playing IMPs?
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: T6 JT QJT54 Q654
Very true Peg; pass and initial neg dbl were both reasonable choices. However, once we pass initially, it only seems right to compete with 4.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: KJ5 AKJ652 KJ 96
Opening 1nt could have been a disaster if partner held more little and one less little . We would end up in a minor suit fit at the 3 level. Opening 1nt in my opinion would be too far against the field. I prefer not to lose boards (especially ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A63 Q AK3 KQ9764
Pass would led to ~50% of the mps.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: T984 A KJ73 KJ76
While a true statement, it was also true that neither of them had a hand worth doubling on. North held KQx and A. Certainly their KQ did not look good for defending.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K54 98 KJ6532 QT
I do not normally preempt at the 3 level with 6322 shape since we have so many losers. However, the decent suit combined with relatively little in the way of defense led me to bid 3. The auction proceeded: P-(1)-3-(P)-4-All Pass. 4 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 964 K876 AQJ6 43
Partner doubled 4 with this hand, which I like. Yes, North may have already won us the board by their 3 bid. However, when you hold Kxxx behind the opening bidder, and a side ace, it looks very likely that they are going down in 4 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: J87 AKJ3 AJ Q642
Jumping to 5 was not an auction that had been discussed. I sat and thought for ~3 minutes before bidding 6. Partner could have bid 3 (forcing); could have bid 4 (Texas) and then cuebid. In the end, I figured that my AK would have ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: J4 QJ64 QJT AK65
I looked at my 14 HCP and saw many negatives, and I just raised to 3nt. I figured that slam would be at best on a finesse most of the time to make. Partner played 3nt and took 11 tricks for +460 and 84% of the mps. The K ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: QJ84 K83 KJ982 3
Partner did well to open this hand 1 in 3rd chair, and did well when they passed out 2 doubled. We defended it just right for +300 and 73% of the mps. Double dummy, the hand can take 11 tricks in for E/W. However, we were ...
