Mark Chen's lead problem: 42 A732 T95 AJ83
Probably seemed like a boring problem, I thought a diamond lead was called for also. Survey has T(25), 5(1), and 2(3). The layout is Board #8 at On this hand, the A lead is needed. Poll seems ...
Attitude or Count Signal?
Thanks all, got lots of replies to this post, some relevant and some on a tangent. Declarer had Jx KQT9x x AKTxx and was cold after winning the A, cashing Q, and leading to her T. Partner had KQ9xx A AQxx Jxx, won his A, and then underled in spades ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: K52 AQ4 A953 K53
As of now there are 25 passers and 9 1NT bidders. LHO opened light with xx KTx KJxx Axxx, RHO stole from us by bidding 1 with JTxxx Jxx Txxx x. The Opponents bid uncontested 1-1-1NT-2!-2 (2 is an invite or a diamond ...
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: A5 AKQ984 AQ AK4
I wanted to bid 8NT but Bridge Winners website would not allow it. I do see that 8NT is not cold, looks like we might need a squeeze for that to come home! I ended up bidding 5S to show 2 or 5 with Q. But I admit I would ...
Who Bid Too Much?
East was 2731.
Mark Chen's bidding problem: KQ9 9643 --- AQJ954
Yes, after I saw the whole layout I was happy we were not -800.
Mark Chen's bidding problem: KQ9 9643 --- AQJ954
I held the East cards on this hand. North held JTxxx xx AK8xx x and did a long pause before passing 3, after which South bid 3 and then North raised to 4. South acknowledged the long pause during the bidding. West had Ax QJx QJT9x Kxx ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 75 AJ5 965 AQ976
This problem is solved by opener rebidding 2NT (or 2 Kokish) when 5332. When was the last time it went 2-2-2 and the best contract was for Opener to declare 3NT? The final contract is almost always a suit contract after this start. I believe the ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A84 J9864 Q5 T74
I wonder if 3 here is a Game Try in hearts since I'm a passed hand and I can't have diamonds worth bidding on their own at the 3 level. If so, that is what I would like to bid.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 75 AJ5 965 AQ976
I don't understand why people play 3 here as 2nd negative. Why not play old fashioned way where 2NT is 2nd negative and 3 is nice and natural? 2NT as 2nd negative also saves space and allows Opener to bid a nice natural 3 if that ...
