Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Striping a hand and forcing an expert player to ruff his partner's winner high or ruffing my loser high while I promoted my trumps in hand and dummy. When I was brand new to ACBL did a strip endplay in 3nt based off of auction and droping a stiff K to win bracket 2.

Goan Oei's bidding problem: Qxxxx Qx Ax QTxx
pass, hope partner can re-open with a double if they pass out 3s. Here's what we know for sure. E has ok spades and great heart support. It's not impossible for E to have the hearts and W actually having a preempt in spades. We can down them ...
Goan Oei's bidding problem: Qxxxx Qx Ax QTxx
I did the exact same thing as described, though unfortunately took me a min and not in tempo.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 7643 KT5 2 AJ872
xx should say I've to 6+ good diamonds. We know for a fact looking at our hand they have an amazing diamond fit yet it was not raised so RHO clearly has a boat load of diamonds. I'm bidding 2c first hopefully get a chance to bid our ...
Benny Abramov's bidding problem: K A T97542 K8763
not quite ready to support spades just yet. It's possible partner has 6214 shape. Going to trot out a 2nt for now. If patner bids 3 I will raise him to game. If he bids 3 I will bid 3 que bid.
Samet Engin's bidding problem: AKQ98764 KJ96 6 ---
double. Way too strong for a 1s overcall. This way I get a chance to find a heart fit with partner and it's not like I'm ever letting them play this hand unless at like the 6 or 7 level. This is the type of hand where I ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: KQ95 KQ752 AJ9 5
I prefer double for 2 reasons. 1. double increases the chances of finding a good fit as I have good tolerance for all 3 suits. 2.Then hand is worth about a 16 count and is good enough to double and the bid hearts (say if partner bids 1d or ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ85 72 AQ84 KJ8
Mention that 2h is forcing. ...and yes I would open 1nt playing 14+-17. You have 3 tenancies to protect.
Best Use of 2 Diamond Opening
Multi 2d (with strong 16+ 4441) 2h/2s shapely intermediate hands with 8/9 - 11/12 HCP, 11-14 total points, at least 5431 shape (not 54 in the majors). Aka hands that are light to min openers based more on shape and not on strength. Use Kaplan interchange to take ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: T765 AJT95 Q2 87
Oh ya suit quality is huge here. If both suits were about the same I might consider staymen with a balanced hand. If spades are better than hearts I would staymen not transfer for sure.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: KQx Ax KJx AT742
After reading the result of the hand I think the moral is not to bid with this hand but to not pass when you got crazy shape, a good suit but not a lot of points.
