about me

I am a C.P.A. and enjoy bridge for the logic of it.  Started in college (UNC) but, luckily not until my last year.  Ran local games for over 30 years with my wife.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

my hand tells me partner has misbid
Pard certainly could have 6's here. I try never to decide partner bid wrong. If he meant it for the majors it is his fault, but if he did not and I pull, it is my fault.
Should you duck Kx?
We have all been in this position many times, and guess right (and wrong). The closeness of the vote shows this. Assuming declarer has more than 2 and not the 10 or 9 they have a loser no matter what they do and might have just played ace and out ...
Where did East-West go so far wrong on this hand?
West should never pass 5 knowing the double fit. Why did East not just raise 's initially instead of doubling?
Compete?
This was a weak pair, and, if they play transfers, I am guessing they had not discussed interference. Rather than risk a misunderstanding of 3 or 4, North picked a call that could not be read wrong.
Compete?
Peg, no, they apparently were not. I did not bother to look after 4 was passed.
Compete?
At least you got partner off to the right lead. North bid 4 on x, AKxxxx, xxxx, xx and caught South with xxx,xxxx,AK,AKQx. Making 6 or 7 depending on the lead.
3NT, MPs, first step
I don't really like 4's first because I am not sure what to pitch on the 4th one without knowing something about the situation.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: KQ87 AQJ84 AQ3 8
I have pretty much described my hand. If partner passes 3 I will assume he knows best.
ATB: Slam vs 3NT
North's second double is terrible. Partner has denied 4 spades so why not do something else. 3 is a start, then correct 3NT to 4 and South should get the idea. With a double heart stopper (or close) South would have bid 2NT over 2.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: T987 KJT95 --- AKJ8
You've got it. Opener was KQJxx, Ax, A10xx, Qx. Responder was A, xxxx, 98xxxx, 9x. KQ of was onside, so they got out for 1 , 1 and 2's.
