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.

Leo Lasota's bidding problem: J7 J982 JT852 K5
"better choice": not necessarily This is MPs and 1nt had a lot going for it: 1) if we end up declaring some # of nt, we score well if we manage to take as many tricks in nt than in 2) this gives partner a pretty good understanding by showing ...
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: --- AKJT943 T874 QJ
What happened to 1 last time? This hand is too strong for a white all 4 opening bid.
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: A5 KJ76 JT AK876
Do you play weak nts? If you play strong nts, you would have already described your hand by opening 1nt.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K87 KQ92 Q9543 J
Preempts frequently work; the 2 bid struck gold on this hand. I just posted the bidding poll with my hand to see if dbl was an option that many would have made. The poll confirms that the vast majority would have been "fixed" on the hand like me and ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K87 KQ92 Q9543 J
I am not proposing to stop in 3. 4 down 1 or making would have scored much better than -110.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: --- A8753 JT87632 T
57 shape hands at white all do not happen often, especially when you get to bid first. I chose to open 2, and the auction proceeded: 2-(P)-P-(dbl)-3-(3)-dbl-All Pass. Partner held: AQJ10 QJ Kx Qxxxx Dummy held ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 84 AT73 T754 AJT
I bid 3nt and played it there. I figured this was the best matchpoint bid. If partner held long but a broken suit they could always pull to 4. The opponents led the 2 from 3 small. Dummy came down with: AKQ10xxx xx Qxx ...

I like to play the dbl by East as 100% penalty, after they have bid a natural nt and now the opponents make a delayed compete to 2. Partner chose to bid 3 with this hand. The auction went: 1-(1)-dbl-(P)-1nt-(P)-P- ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AKT Q98762 842 K
Partner chose to bid 2 (GF) with this hand, and our uncontested auction went: 1-1-2-2-3-3nt. We are looking at a 12 count opposite partner's vulnerable opening bid. However, I believe that the hand went down in value with the 2 rebid. A ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K87 KQ92 Q9543 J
I like to find reasons to bid white all on auctions like this, but Kxx & aceless led me to pass. The auction went all pass and we defended 2 making 2 for 3 out of 17 matchpoints. Unfortunately there was nothing that we could do on defense of ...
