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.

Steve Tyer's bidding problem: QT9643 AK64 J Q5
Interesting, I never thought about that!
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: QT9643 AK64 J Q5
For those of you who might be interested, the "winner" turns out to be 3. You catch partner with K87, Q10932, AQ9, J9. 4 Hearts went spade to North's ace, spade ruff, club ace, club to North's king, another spade ruff,-200. 4 spades makes if you ...
Your Understanding and Call?
With my regular partner I would expect a raise with the given hand. I probably either have a really good hand or club support if he goes back to that.
Ruling on Misinformation
Has to be 4 making 4 or 5 depending on getting trumps right. 3NT down would be a horrible ruling.
ATB Precision
It is hard to put 8-13 points in the balanced East hand where we do not have a decent chance at a slam!! Of course 8-13 is a mighty big range.
Help please (1): Revolving Discards
Michael is right. I have yet to play against a player that can play smoothly when they do not have the card they want to play. Hesitations usually mean "do not take this card too seriously".
How "expert" is this play?
I do not think playing the king should be that hard for anyone who has read more than a beginning defense book. Sure we all fall asleep and play low from time to time, but that is not paying attention, not not knowing better.
Can you help me figure out if I am crazy or not?
I play a double shows 4 spades and, if not diamonds, I know where to go if you bid diamonds ( like NT or raise 's). 2 is not a reverse, just taking a pick between spades and diamonds.
What do you signal?
If we have a heart trick coming it is unlikely to be going anywhere, even if declarer can pitch one of dummy's on the club queen.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AJ742 J KQT764 Q
If we do not get 's in the picture now they may be gone forever. Nowhere near good enough to reverse later.
