about me

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AJ762 AJ42 87 64
I think the 3 fit-jump should be a stronger slam-suitable had, such as AKJxx Axxx xx xx It's tempting to force this hand to game. But the J in our trump suit is, ironically, not worth 1hcp (9 missing the Jack is nearly just as good as 9 ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ73 A 6 A976432
I agree with Peg. I’m bidding 2 and keycarding at my next turn, signing off at 5/6/7 depending on how many partner has
