about me

Having my bid, putting down a good dummy, making partner's life easy, getting a plus score. Not that concerned about going +170.

None, not because they can't be fun but because they lose IMPS / match-points, particularly in partnerships that practice less than 10-20 hours a week together.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Strong Hand
1C all pass is probably too much of a possibility at Vul
Paul Dalley's bidding problem: AQT53 KQJ2 43 KT
When I open 1NT I am about a K better than I am when I open 1C.
John Newman's bidding problem: 9852 AK8 J4 J742
My impression of partner's hand is 4 spades exactly, and 4 or 5 clubs. With 6 clubs partner would probably have just overcalled 2C. So probably 2 or less hearts, because otherwise probably would've heard X over 1D. In general I would expect well textured suits and a ...

T2 defense

Ella Pattison's bidding problem: K95 KQJ93 42 A87
My guess is 75% or more of the time you will end up in 3NT. So obviously wrong siding the contract by bidding 2NT is not a good idea, and here that is a very high chance of happening for most of partner's spade and/or diamond holdings. One ...
