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.

David Goldfarb's bidding problem: QJ75 9763 72 Q62
Partner has announced at least 10 cards in the minors, w/ 6+ & 4+. This is an easy 3 call.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AT986 T7543 A3 3
The law of total tricks says that on average the two sides will take 21 total tricks (10 card club fit their way + 11 card spade fit our way). Bidding 5 is frequently correct. It just wasn't the winning choice on this hand. I might have doubled just ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AT986 T7543 A3 3
You take one spade, 2 diamonds and a diamond ruff if you take it. Opening bidder was 1246.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 8653 AKJ843 6 T2
I made the matchpoint choice of 2 stayman. I was going to bid 2 over 2 from partner (as garbage stayman), pass if partner responded 2, or raise to 4 if partner responded 2. Partner responded 2 and I placed them in game ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AK6 6 AQ74 AKJ32
I chose 4 and we partner played it there. Partner held: 1098xx KJ 10863 xx The opponents led 2 rounds of hearts, and he played a club to the jack, which held. The clubs split 42 (with the length in front of dummy's 5 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AT986 T7543 A3 3
Partner elected to bid 5 with this hand, and this was unfortunately doubled by the 2 bidder. I held: KQxxxx KJ Kxx xx This went down 1 for -200 and a poor result when RHO won trick one with the A, and played ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AQ4 K953 AKT84 K
I chose to open this hand 2nt, since I held cards to protect on major suit leads, held a decent potential source of tricks in the diamond suit, and the opponents are not likely to find a double dummy club lead if the auction goes something like 2nt-3nt with my ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: Q943 97 KJ5 A953
I chose 2 instead of the takeout double b/c: 1) Partner knows that I only have a 4 card suit (I did not transfer to spades last time), therefore if they only have a doubleton they will take another bid (2nt or 3 of a minor). 2) I ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 93 A63 QJ98642 5
I chose to make the slightly unusual bid of 3. The bidding proceeded: (P)-P-(2)-2S-(3)-3-(4)-P-(P)-dbl- All Pass. We set this 2 for +500. The Flannery bidder was understandably surprised when they held J10xx, and ywt their ...
Leo Lasota's lead problem: A97 K9 QJ63 A872
I made the only lead to allow declarer to make 5 for a zero. Silly me I thought to lead the Q. Turns out that LHO forgot what they were playing and meant 2 to be natural. In addition, the suit that they overcalled was A107xx, and the ...
