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.

How much is winning “a lot” evidence of cheating?
Some of it has to do with how often do they make "abnormal" bids or plays that seem to work out. Lucky leads that happen to hit partner or psych's that are picked up too often.

Peg, you are right, as usual. Matter of fact, in looking at it I wonder why pard didn't open 1NT. Weak doubleton? Of course it they had there is virtually no way we could find a slam. This way gave us a little shot.
Rate North's bidding
Maybe I could have solved all this by opening 1 in first seat. Certainly not the worst call in the world.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: KQ96 A63 KQ53 T2
It was partially a question of should you cue bid. Sure you have maybe a queen better than promised but is that enough to look further? May depend on just how good "non-minimum" is. In actuality, it was A10xxx, 92, Axx, AKx.
Follow ups to 2NT overcall of weak 2
3 is Stayman and normal transfers.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: AK5 982 AKJ854 Q
Hopefully he would bid 6NT. 7 makes because hearts are 3-3 and the club hook works, either of which disposes of your 3rd spade.

Hard to say what partner would do next, since his diamonds are so bad. I will end the suspense and tell you he was xxxx, AKQx, 10xx, AJ.

Richard Reitman - Partner continues with 4 over your 3.

Buddy, my partner was fairly inexperienced and likes a jump in a minor to be forcing. I only recently talked him into playing major suit jumps as limit.
