Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Walking into the local club at the tender age of 31 (1980) armed with 16-18 and Blackwood that I had gotten out of a book. In a few months I got to play with a decent standby and we won. The next week we won again. And then ..."What is this club bid you call Stayman and I'm worried about my clubs?". And we didn't win.
Bridge Accomplishments
Winning 2 events at an old sectional when they only had 4. I had 200 masterpoints. My team won the thu bam and my partner and I won the sat open paris. There were no strats or flights.

Craig Zastera's bidding problem: J9432 Q75 KQ Q65
Why not just average everybody's hand. Give E 7 hcp. Now partner is more likely to have 15 hcp than 10 hcp. Exclude some of partner's 10 hcp that he has a pass of 3. Now bidding 3 looks more like an underbid than 4 ...
Marten La Haye's bidding problem: K8754 A9 --- KJT764
Maybe partner actually makes 2 bids that it's less bad than somewhere else.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: A KT5 AJ AKT7654
12 controls in the deck. This hand has 9 out of 12 in a club contract. Dare I ask upgrade to 2?
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: KT643 A32 KT6 98
If you're playing controls frequently partner will know which ones you have. And this time slam zone on your 1st bid.
Ante Mijić's bidding problem: QJ3 Q7 52 AK8653
I've seen bidding clubs be worse than useless.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: KT643 A32 KT6 98
In hindsight, simplistic (resulting) the 3 tricks that this hand was worth made partner's hand worth 10 tricks. And without 1 of them could it be that a small slam is being missed?
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: KT643 A32 KT6 98
I sacrificed the leakage problem with the hope that a solution to this problem may come up. So far it looks like ending this auction in 3N is winning the poll.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: A KT5 AJ AKT7654
Thanks Jack. I apologize in advance for a poll I'm going to make.

Thanks all for votes and comments.
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: T87643 AQ8 J KQ3
Happiness is in the clouds. Kyu Sakamoto. Does 3N make or go down?
