Paul Lewis's lead problem: 3 732 KJT432 AT7
The diamond leaders won, as partner has Qx. In retrospect, I think this hand is instructive. Your diamond preempt did its job and made life difficult for East. Logically, anytime he has a strong hand with clubs, he doesn't have the luxury of needing 2 diamond stoppers to bid ...
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: Q62 K52 Q765 T64
Itzik is right on. Partner IS 1-3-3-6 and Pass WILL be a very bad score - this is OUR HAND and you can't let them steal. Your values are too soft for 3NT - unlikely you can run 9. I'm surprised nobody mentioned DOUBLE - cooperative ("BOP" is what my friend ...
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: AT543 KQ752 K K3
Undiscussed, but I think 3Nt would be to play - probably 2-2 in majors. 4C wiuld be slam try with ace of clubs.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: AQ K92 KJT4 QJ85
My mistake - meant Sandwich, not Snapdragon.
Time For A New Statistic
Thanks, but I suspect you're confusing me with Paul Lewis who is married to Linda. My team finished 19th.
Time For A New Statistic
I think that statistic is just what I'm suggesting. Applications of it would develop over time if data were easily available to the public.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: QJ9543 A K8 J984
Partner's full hand was VOID 987x QJx KQxxxx. I certainly would double with that hand. Pulling to 3C? Maybe.....
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: QJ9543 A K8 J984
Glad y'all agree with me - but partner had a spade void and KQxxxx of clubs. 2S was not a success.
Open Denver Discussion Thread
Thanks for the info, Peg and Gary. I took about 40 years off from bridge -- but the idea of Denver in December makes me shiver....
Open Denver Discussion Thread
I think the time has come to consider moving the Fall Nationals to earlier in November. EVERY one of the past 5 years, the Fall Nationals has had lower attendence than the other two. Spring and Summer are almost always over 1000 tables -- Fall is NEVER over 1000 (at least ...
