Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing in the final of a random-draw K.O. against Mike Passell's team one Saturday morning. The playing site was completely empty except for our two tables and the director. We got killed, but our expert opponents were generous with their bridge tips and guidance. Our entire team had 700 masterpoints vs. their 70,000+ masterpoints. The capper was a combined group photo.
Bridge Accomplishments
Two national championships! Flight C swiss, Flight B swiss. Nowhere to go from here but up.

Jim Perkins's bidding problem: A2 T98 --- KQJT9432
4D Splinter for hearts. I know I only have three of them.
Jerry Murbach's bidding problem: T AQ2 K54 Q98743
Hi, Lynn. 2C in response to 1D is game forcing.
Is the standard of play declining?
Steve, I agree with you, except about every sports record being broken. Ty Cobb's lifetime batting average of .367, set in 1928, will probably never be broken.
Ivan Brajkovic's bidding problem: --- Q9872 AK987 AK2
Abstain. We're thoroughly derailed. I can't deal with this.
Jerry Murbach's bidding problem: AQJ73 AJ8754 AQ ---
If you open 1H, it gets passed out for +200 and a tie for bottom. To score a top, you had to open 2C and reach 4S (+650 or +680), or 4H (+650). Two people apparently opened 1S and played it there, making 6 for +230 on a non-trump lead ...
Tom Peters's bidding problem: J986 5 KJT864 T8
3D. I'm trying to show a weak, preemptive hand. I sure hope our best fit isn't spades.
Amir Levin's bidding problem: Jxxx x KJxx xxxx
I'm passing. It sounds like my diamond strength is totally wasted.
Lars Allard's bidding problem: AJTxx Kx AKxxx A
I'll stretch and bid 3D with this uninteresting, featureless hand.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: Q QJ864 K963 A85
Gregory, do E/W play support doubles?
What kind of double is this?
We play it as penalty, mainly because it's more fun for us.
