about me

Player for 40 years. Work and other interests (golf, tennis, poker, and recently pickleball) have curtailed my play, and I wish I had the chance to play more. I do teach 'intermediate' bridge regularly. It might be apt to describe myself as more 'student of the game'. One immutable fact about bridge I have learned - bridge teaches about life.

Which agreement set is better, imps if it matters
Only describing because I was asked - 2NT any two suits. 3-any just a good suit in a decent hand, 3 as stopper-asking.
Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: 6 QT98742 4 KQT4
I think 4 should logically show something like this, but partner may not be on the same wavelength. So I settle for 3.
Gregory Gauthier's bidding problem: AK873 T54 97542 ---
Not defending 1NT, but I confess I bid earlier.
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: KQ92 952 AJ32 A6
"Two outta three ain't bad." - Meatloaf (I think Bonnie Tyler and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band may have performed it too) I just sit for clubs if partner bids them.
Ian Grant's bidding problem: xxxx xxx xxx xxx
I'd like to remove the 4 card from my Gerber-loving students' bid boxes. 4NT would be a close second choice.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: Q962 A83 5 AKQ74
I bid 7 last round. If partner forgot system, so be it. If partner as RF posits asked in hearts intending to play in spades, partner buys the first round. And the second, third and fourth because I'm going to be drinking to forget this fiasco.
Mark Bartusek's bidding problem: 98654 8762 KT 65
At IMPs I'd go for it, but matchpoints? If no game is making, we're scoring well by staying low. I might advance in tough field though.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: KQ984 A76 Q8 QT4
If partner has long diamonds in a weakish hand, we'll soon find out. No need to distort our hand in an attempt to compete.
John Vega's bidding problem: xx QTxxxx --- Kxxxx
I must be older than you 'cuz I Pass :)
Zachary Madden's bidding problem: 4 JT74 4 AKQT752
I forget about slam. A diamond lead and a club back could ruin our day if in 6.
