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.

Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: A KT8743 AKT K87
As a 4th seat 1 opener, 1 followed by the 2 rebid shows the intermediate hand (~14-16). The suit is so bad that this 17 count is like a bad 16 count. The hand is only worth a 2 rebid.
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
With South being a passed hand, the likelihood of a potential slam with the North hand is relatively slim. The critical aspect from the North hand is driving to the right game (4 or 3nt). Going through the N/S auction of: P-1-1nt-3**-3**-3 ...
Marten La Haye's lead problem: A953 Q863 JT54 K
Agree; this is an impossible auction given to us.
Richard Brown's bidding problem: J8 AJ43 A6 AJ852
You should tell us when your 1nt opener is not 15-17. If it was, you would have opened the hand 1nt.
Noah Weiss's bidding problem: 4 85 KQJT8743 73
Most bidding systems I know have ways to show single suited slam tries in a minor when partner opens 2nt.
Jason Chiu's bidding problem: AT974 8 Q7 AK973
Even if you have not discussed playing some sort of Good/Bad 2nt on this auction, you should get your suit in at your 2nd opportunity; bid 3 over their 2 overcall.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: JT653 9 A2 KQ732
There is no way that we would have passed this hand in 2nd seat, so this is an impossible auction.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: K974 K42 K64 A53
Would always start 4333 shape w/ GF values w/ 2 over 1 from partner.
Is this a way to run an organization?
The Fri/Sat top bracket ko in Reston was the strongest throughout the week. They established the bracket with 9 teams, with a full round robin day 1. Teams played 6 board swiss matches against every other team on Friday. The top four teams by VPs then played semis & finals Saturday to determine 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 4th overall. On paper, there were different groups of teams: 1) likely to finish top 4 on Fri. and had a decent chance at winning the event; ...
Rajeev Jog's bidding problem: --- QJT632 J642 AJ9
Standard bidding is to bid 2 over 2 with this hand.
