about me

I took my first bridge lesson in '91 and got hooked right away. My only bridge accomplishment was winning the Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney(Nationally) in '93 in my division. Second from lowest since I was still a new player. Played after that more and more casually for a few more years, and then quit playing for 18 years.  I started back up just over a year ago after retiring.   Feel like I have a lot of catching up to do, but I love the game and look forward to many years of bridge enjoyme

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing against Jeff Meckstroth and Eric Rodwell as a novice player I held up twice on an Ace against Jeff to beat a contract. It was not a typical situation to hold up twice, but it was the only way to beat the contract. Eric Rodwell said "Nice Defense" Very nice memory.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
John Torrey's bidding problem: AKJ64 A3 65 AT83
Qxxxx xx xxx xxx would be an ok Bergen raise at this vulnerability.
Jeff Rogers's bidding problem: Q42 KJT5 KQJ 963
Partner's hand was: A9 Q10863 A10752 7
Brian Davies's bidding problem: 87 KT986543 --- KT6
Brian, my curiosity is piqued. When enough votes get cast, I wouldn't mind seeing the rest of the hands at the table. Cheers.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: KQ2 KQ42 KQ6 KT5
Downgrading a point for 4333 hands, in general, has worked out more times than not for me
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: A652 AQ5 A4 T642
I play that as equal length in the majors, usually 4-4. That keeps us from guessing wrong into our 7 card fit when the 8 card fit is available. If I, as West, have a penalty double, I expect partner to double again with shortness if I pass.
Jim Houghton's bidding problem: Q9863 KT AQ9 AK5
If I were playing 15-17 NT openings, I would have "taken a view" with this hand and opened 1nt.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: KQx Qxx AKQJx QJ
With the quacky round suits and the doubleton honor in clubs, I wouldn't have opened this hand 2nt. That said, if partner is showing slam interest in diamonds missing all the top honors along with the fact that we have a 10 card fit, I'm going to swing ...
Antonio Cocco's bidding problem: JT8542 8 K KT853
I'll second that motion.
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: A543 KT54 Q95 A6
I'm guessing that partner has 3145 distribution with enough values to not sell out at the 2 level.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: K8765 74 8 AKJ85
Once partner had made a game forcing bid at his first turn, I would continue to describe my shape with a 3 rebid which, in my opinion, would not show extra strength.
