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. I am just shy of being a Diamond Life Master.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

Are system psych allowed?
This is the only reasonable explanation. Otherwise South must have played with North before and knows to be wary of the 1 call in this situation.
PENALTY OR TAKEOUT? DIRECT/INDIRECT SEAT
I agree, these are two totally different auctions and Kaustubh's choices should have been offered. P.S. CAPS are unusual here, but I can live with them.
Defense is hard
Has to be a . After partner takes our 5 tricks he may well be endplayed. If declarer has AK of 's and 's a heart shift is needed. If partner has a high spade he will get it.
How would you have acted?
I think the double of 2 is unusual enough that LHO should be told even if they did not ask. While not quite similar, a number of years ago, before bidding boxes, my LHO opened 1 and pard bid 2's. RHO asked if we played weak ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AQ92 KJT9853 98 ---
Great problem Peg. Anything could be right...1, 2,3, 4 or maybe even pass and see what happens. Plenty of time to come in later. Much harder if vulnerable.
How should this be bid ?
I agree. North should realize he has a great hand, especially on the first auction with the big club fit. South deserves a more thoughtful partner.
Question from Opponent after Dummy comes down
With no alert the assumption is that declarer has at least 3's. That should be all the opponents are entitled to know.
Establish your side suit .... or not?
I agree. If spades were 4-0 we would probably be in 4 doubled considering our limited resources.
Jump shifts into minors after a major opening bid
I agree, particularly with 4-card raises. Gets us to the proper level quickly and, with the weaker hand, makes it hard for opponents to compete.
Not Dead Yet
Ah, but you are young at heart, where it matters. Keep up the good work Peg.
