about me

Enjoy playing bridge and watching most other sports.

More interested in bidding than in playing, but that's probably because declaring is the worst part of my game Embarassed.

József Szikszai's bidding problem: 876542 --- KT3 AKQ5
I doubled on my first bid, but if i had bid 1 i guess i'd double now to bring my real suits in the picture :) Even more so, since p might well be short in so will either be quite long in and or happy to ...
It's Your invitation

David Corn's bidding problem: K9853 98 54 AK32

@ Adam: I'd like to like this several times over :)
What should the selectors do?
Even easier: the 6 players who are eligible to play and have most "Followers" on BW get to go. Anyone who can't or doesn't want to make it, we pick nr 7 etc. Works just as well for any country and is re-usable anytime.
