Join Bridge Winners
First Day of the New Orleans LMs

Your Bridge Winners co-founders decided to give the LMs a go together.  Gavin and I have been friends for many years, but have never actually played in a national event together.  I am pleased to report we survived to the second day despite a misadventure or two. The first day of a national after not playing much bridge is always tough, but hopefully the rust is off and we are ready to rumble tomorrow.

So the first board out of the box in the second session you pick up:

What would you bid?

 

So I elected to bid 4 hoping that it was choice of games.  Partner bids 4NT and I go into the tank.

 

What would you bid now?

I think this goes down as my second longest ever response to Blackwood (ask Paul Bethe about the "3 cigarette bid" 9 years ago).

Should I pass? lie?  Eventually, I decided to respond honestly showing 1 or 4 for better or worse, partner bid 5 queen ask, then over 5, bid 5nt.  So we ended up in 6, and I had to play it on the 2 lead
