Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Winning european Juniors pairs championship (long, long time ago!)
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Can you avoid -200?
I think they got enough information from the bidding :-)
Weirdest Bid
Just had a similar experience two days ago: 1 by partner, x to my right, xx by me; 1 left, x by partner, 2(!) to my right. Pass, Pass, x again - now 3(!!) to my right. This finally went for +300 with no game for us ...
Bridge in fiction
In "The light fantastic" by Terry Pratchett DEATH himself learns to play bridge - with the Apocalyptic Riders as his companions. Highly enjoyable - as all of Sir Terry's fiction, may he rest in peace!
How do you play this 6!S contract?
Bidding and lead makes me feel like this: winning spade in hand, heart finesse, heart ruff, spade to dummy (supposing 3-1), heart ruff (hoping for 4-2 hearts), hearts and spades, diamond finesse. This way, even an overtrick is possible if east is 1255 with both diamond king and ace of ...

ATB for this disaster
Thxs everybody, there was a lot of enlightment! Basically I agree with the (often made) comment, that our partnership had discussed this situation much too little!
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AJT765 653 A43 3
...and you are vul; I consider this is a maximum weak two rather than a (sub)minimum opening bid.
Upside upside down
There are 14 clubs and 12 diamonds in this deck...
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AT65 5 AKQ73 987
Hm, I wonder about the pessimistic approaches. Is x; Qxx; Jxxxxx; Axx to much to hope for (after all, we are vul vs. nv)? And they might save too...
