about me

Marketing professor for 40 years.  Last 30 at Shippensburg University.  Golfer who used to be good, but has declined.  Times when I think I should be playing golf when I am playing bridge, and times when I think I should be playing bridge when I am golfing.  Love to think of bidding sequences which are available. I like to put pressure on the opponents (and sometimes on partners).

Country
United States of America

Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: 5 AQ6 QJ653 AT63
There are many problems that happen with inverted minors. I think that most bridge players do not play inverted, but I have no idea what the actual % is.
David Corn's bidding problem: AKQT854 KQT73 9 ---
Why not play a convention the way it should be played instead of distorting it? Same with unusual 2NT.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: A2 AKQ3 Q2 K8653
Re R.R. second comment. It could go AKJxxx when you bid NT. Perhaps not the majority but it happens often enough.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: 5 AQ6 QJ653 AT63
It would seem that NS do not play inverted minors, so 2C is a reasonable bid.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: A2 AKQ3 Q2 K8653
Astro shows 4H. Why would one make a bid that distorts the hand, especially a major? True Astro guarantees 4H and 5+ C. It definitely does not show the majors and is not asking for stoppers. If partner has D and S, partner can bid 3NT knowing that I have ...
David Sackett's bidding problem: A4 K85 --- AQT87643
Just because we start with 5C does not mean that partner is barred from raising or even if EW compete from bidding. 1100 seems to be stretching. we would have to lose AQx of H, a spade and W would need KJ9 (x) of C. Neither EW bid, so not ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: A2 AKQ3 Q2 K8653
3D: Astro showing 4H and 5+C and a good hand.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 72 AKT7542 --- KQ76
abstain. Would have bid 5C instead of 4NT. Do not understand 4NT. Blackwood? Minors? Confusion?
Oleg Galimov's bidding problem: AKJ A5 92 AKT973
I think that partner may well pass, but that does not preclude me from bidding. After 2C (and EW arrive at 4H either by 2H, P,4H or by 3H-4H), try X. This should show 3S, not 4, as we could (would) bid 4S. Double should not necessarily show D ...
David Sackett's bidding problem: A4 K85 --- AQT87643
5C. Not disagreeing with your comment Richard. But (not meaning to be sexist) aren't D for women?
