Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AQ6 QT7 K8 AQ753
I upgrade it and open 1. Even though I have three queens they have tens and aces next to them for support. I don't have any HCP that look completely helpless like Jxx or Qx
John Portwood's bidding problem: KJ6 AKQ876532 J ---
Although three key cards in diamonds would be welcome...
John Portwood's bidding problem: KJ6 AKQ876532 J ---
I bid 2 first. 5 is coming next I think.
Why would anyone want to do this?
V = valet, pour une seconde vous avez ecrit en francais (sorry can't be bothered to add two accent marks)
Falling Apart
Not really, I tried to pick off anything that was a 2-session event. I didn't include the Chicago NABC <10K pairs because my partner was the culprit, he is a more affected by calorie intake than I am and has to be a bit careful.
Falling Apart
I showed this article to my main bridge partner an he thinks the worst part of his game is getting warmed up and that he does well in the home stretch. That would tend to offset my ability to start strong and finish poorly. Sorry if this is a lame ...
Falling Apart
Or maybe being [nearly] in the lead plays with my lead.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: J43 AQT2 K9853 9
Yeah I was wondering that :) It's a new suit so it seems like it would be forcing.

A singleton club and a 10-count makes me think 2 should have some play. If there is a game in the works, partner would need to be strong enough to take another call to invite me.
Win Sartaj Hans' Money!
A 9-loser hand with 9 hcp of which two are jacks. Ick.
