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.

Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Jx KQxx x QJxxxx
I don't think it's what's good or bad. It's making a negative double, supposedly finding a place to play in hearts, denying it, and trying to play in 3 clubs instead. This is at least a fuzzy picture.

Thanks Steve.

Agree with comments about 4N. I found the actual hands in a 3.5 table club game. 1 table bid 4, another 5. So 7N going down was excessive overkill. [code] AK9 AKQxx A AJxx QJx Txxx Jx xx Txxx Qxx Qxxx !xxxx xxx Txxx KJxxx K

North flight C. South stubborn DLM, insisting N should bid 7. More story when I get my cheap cell phone working.
Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Jx KQxx x QJxxxx
I'm hoping partner doesn't have one of those hands. 9 tricks in hearts seems like aiming for a dime. Even if partner has just 3 hearts, 10 tricks in hearts seems like a target. Crossruff/dummy reversal lines. I have a stiff dia and no high control in ...

Kokish. I found the actual hands: AK9 AKQxx A AJxx xxx Txxx KJxxx K Hearts were 2/2, Qxx. Many ways to make 7. 1 way to make 6!N.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 3 KQ6 AKQT973 J6
Swans play well in their long suit. Even if partner has 4 or 5 hearts.
Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Jx KQxx x QJxxxx
Now that the auction has gone this way, I think it is best to get her done.
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: Q43 Q53 A4 KQT53
It's important now to find out if you can play somewhere. Hopefully not a 3/3 maj. Then get out.
Ben Kristensen's bidding problem: Q QT QJTxx AKQxx
I'm going to guess that having 1 spade an 2 hearts is an ominous warning that I should pass now.
