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.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: T62 AT8 AK863 72
I count 5332 dist as a minus.
Tilman Seidel's bidding problem: AT74 K5 T76 A953
Partner could be lightish due to a club void. My hand looks more like trying to beat them than making something. May have to promote a 2nd club trick.
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: T973 6542 A63 A6
Knocking out their heart stopper(s?) may be enough to beat 3N.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: A6 5 KJ654 QT973
It looks like bidding NT is more of an act of desperation than a description. I still don't know how my act of desperation of bidding 2 instead of 1 to avoid being a party to antagonist bidding from all 3 sources, worked out.
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: K J9742 A952 J87
The stiff spade (even K) leaves me the question: is my hand good enough to bid 4?
Robert Mason's bidding problem: AQT32 AK987654 --- ---
I'm eschewing masochism of trying to torture this auction. It just means that's what I'm doing.
Malcolm Pryor's bidding problem: JT2 AQ954 42 Q96
Or 2N to show a hand more likely to want to be in 4?
Bryan Renouf's bidding problem: AQ54 87 94 AKQJ6
What about our future in this hand? Not much against 3 of their red suit. So telling them I have clubs is worse than a waste of time. And I think a Michaels 2 is superior to Astro. Is there any reason to add "good hand" to a description ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: 72 QT9642 853 Q7
If things are such they are going to try to beat 1, I was hoping that might go down 1 less than 2.
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: JTxx A Jxxx ATxx
In case 3, I pass. Partner bidding hearts so many times worries me.
