about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six. I played casually for the next 20+ years then joined the ACBL in my late 20s and have slowly but progressively grown more serious about bridge. Now in my mid 60s, I'm more enthusiastic than ever and still working to improve my game.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
John Portwood's bidding problem: KJT764 AT5 --- AQ54
I would have bid 4 directly. The scenic detour may have given the opponents a nice view, but I'll 4 anyway.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AJ A9764 K853 85
I would have bid 3 over partner's 3.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: --- JT976 AT42 Q987
I would have bid 3 the round before.
Benjamin Bomber's bidding problem: Qxx x KQJTxx Axx
With my regular partners, I would bid 5, but it sounds like it shows 1st round control per your meta agreements.
Has this happened to anyone else?
My partner and I once put together two 53% games and placed in the overalls of a 2 session sectional pair game without scratching in either session.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: A32 KJ5 AK94 K83
I think Richard wants to know if 2C might be as weak as xx,xx,Jxxxxx,xxx or if it promises some amount of hcp.
Poaching Jon Green's Post regarding the Common Game of 2/12
In B, I like using the cue bid to show 3 card support in a strong hand (17+), but I don't think it is game forcing opposite a bust.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AK76 KT4 AT7 AQ6
You also have 4 key cards and a King in the remaining suit. Partner may have a hand that makes slam but cannot underwrite going to the 5 level unless you cue bid. That being said, I voted for 3.
Alan Frank's bidding problem: AQ873 83 AJ AQ42
Perhaps your partner should wonder if he should have bid more.
Play this slam
I think the 3rd option should be low club to the 8. Also 9 should be 8 in a later option.
