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.

Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: 97 A9832 8642 64
1. Rho has us in trouble in 1. 2. Partner has a bid hand.
Jim Houghton's bidding problem: AQJx xx KJx xxxx
Very small issue opening 1. Nobody in the world is pompous enough to insult others by telling anybody what they should do. As if anybody that looks at these cards can't make their own decision. At first I wanted to nail that 2 intrusion, not worrying about ...
Bas Van Der Hoek's bidding problem: KQJT98 --- A7543 42
I'm not interested in hearing any of the 3 remainders tell me about some round cards. Bid what I am likely to make - all pass.
Settle A Bet
The T or even just N not having a spade lead are in the constellation. The J is working in 3N. And leads/switches and T and T are constellar.
Settle A Bet
I posted this in haste after a heated exchange. Since then have had many thoughts. I am thankful for the results and hope some others got some use out of it.
