Beyond over the hill but not hope.

Cherish BW discussions.

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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Louis Beauchet's bidding problem: KQT QJ8732 3 A64
This hand may play better in hearts than spades.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: AJ62 QT4 K753 A6
This is a real bad t/o dbl. But also one that survive vs passing.
Nikos Stamatiou's lead problem: 86 JT73 KJ872 T6
I tried to answer the question why I "saw" blasting. Maybe S has A or xx.
Tevfik Uslu's bidding problem: QJ KJ74 85 A8653
Not that "very". Still somewhat.
Joshua Donn's lead problem: 872 QJ3 Q72 KT54
Yeah, those tens. It seems like once I decided the cards can't do that to me forever, they stopped doing it.
Barry Buehler's bidding problem: QJT AT97 3 AQ863
Sometimes rules aren't as blind as the justice you get for using your eyes.
Richard Granville's lead problem: Q KT863 AT65 876
Whatever suit I play after winning a trick may well be the most informed play I make this hand. The Q could be even more passive than a club if our tempi has anything to do with this defense.
Nikos Stamatiou's lead problem: 86 JT73 KJ872 T6
S jumped from 4 to 6N. They didn't check for controls or try for 7.
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: AKQ82 KT84 AK6 2
I have such a nice hand. Maybe 4 helps pd more than it leaks to the opps.
Ataman Aydogdu's lead problem: T954 J963 T85 43
I'm leading the unbid mj. and from a J too.
