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.

Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: Q KJ872 Q AQT983
For a simple heart raise, my partners tend to be less involved especially than the other 3 hands.
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
I think the lynch mob is holier than thou vindictive. We caught somebody else. I've been caught so many times myself.
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
Provocative. For what it's worth.
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
Actually I mean I will be guessing if I answer. Many have declined to have me answer. Do questions have some kind of mystical power? Is it even legitimate for them to be asked? Sometimes they are UA. Or the asker should answer the question themselves. I think West's ...
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
Other tables could have started with 1!N by S. N could have bid 1. I have doubts about N's 3 and passing 3N. Giving N/S any club contract is against field equity and giving them benefit of the doubt with many questions about it.
Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: Q KJ872 Q AQT983
I think bidding 4 would be glaring. You're likely to be out gunned. All you're doing is helping them. Let them guess. Now I think pass is the best thing.
Dave Waterman's bidding problem: AT54 AK AK4 QJ84
I start with partner's hand being x xxxx xxxx xxxx.
Ruling & whats do you think is the best
Aren't the rules different in some jurisdictions as to whether 2 is an alert or not. I believe in ACBL land 2 is not an alert. In SA's jurisdiction it is? People try too hard to answer questions. And the question is posed incorrectly. The question ...
Mechanics of Counting Goren Points in Hand
Some hands are friendly to count. They group well. Or there are only a few. The ones that aren't, I count about 3 times. Sometimes changing the groups of 2 or 3. It seems like I always have time to browse. If others are slow, I can repeat those ...
Bud Hinckley's bidding problem: KQ63 J4 QJT2 AJ9
This auction may be too occasional. About 15 yrs ago in Larry King's money Bridge Pro Tour individual, my partner and I were the only ones to miss a slam. 4 was based on 20 hcp and this hand passed. I guess 4 sounded too final without ...
