Joshua Donn's bidding problem: T87xxx KJxx --- xxx
If this holding is what an initial 2 call looks like, take it off the convention card immediately. 5=5=2=1 with some values in the majors is more reasonable, not a weak hand with a void in and a 2-card disparity in the majors. The convention ...
John Newman's bidding problem: AQJ9752 84 K4 J7
It would not occur to me to remove this DBL, which action I consider the worst sort of masterminding. I passed over 5 to elicit an opinion from partner; I got it. We were in-range for our initial 2 call, have some defensive strength outside of , and ...
IBPA MPP Book of the Year Shortlist
I have already published favorable reviews of Avon's and Adam"s books in The Bridge World, and I am presently reading through David and Larry's book on cardplay, which is excellent. Each of these books is outstanding in its own way, especially Avon's for the extensive research ...

I particularly appreciated the emphasis on bidding balanced holdings as balanced, unbalanced as unbalanced. I enthusiastically recommend ...

You are most welcome, Adam. Please keep up your great work of helping advancing players learn to "think bridge" instead of just playing bridge.
Using two bidding systems according to vulnerability
Soloway - Goldman played 2 systems, based on vulnerability, in the 1980's.
Richard Bley's bidding problem: 5 AQT Q742 K9863
Odd to consider bidding again here. Partner opened in third position and showed a minimum-range opening with 6 (or possibly more) 's. Other than its stoppers in the unbid suits, what about this holding suggests bidding on? We have nothing in partner's suit, no source of tricks of ...
