Bridge Accomplishments
Once threw the ♣A on the table when I was intending to open 1♣.
ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Was anyone at fault here?
West isn't showing an opening hand so much as avoiding missing game at IMPs. A leap to 4 with a pile of decent spades and a sharp card or two. I know lots of good players who would jump to game as West with: K87632 xxx (or short ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: K6 K8652 AJ9 K62
I thought this was a very tough problem. Passing gives up on these 4♡ contracts, but on the flipside it's a pretty small window to aim for isn't it? Given how reliably people open trash, you're hoping for some pretty useful cards. I suppose one upside is ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: K6 K8652 AJ9 K62
One advantage of bidding is that I don't have to be on lead.
John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ
The full hand: http://www.nswba.com.au/tourn/res.asp?yr=2019&dir=gnot&E=10&R=1&B=4&T=O I thought♧Q was the logical lead but when I asked a few experts they choose a heart, which is why I thought it's a good ...
John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ

John Newman's lead problem: T64 AJ763 K75 QJ
What do people think South's hand looks like?
John Newman's bidding problem: T43 A72 AJ52 K73
"They" follows "partner's hand". I didn't specify a second seat opening because there was no special agreement.
John Newman's bidding problem: T43 A72 AJ52 K73
This is how I hoped my partner would interpret my double, but in retrospect I think I made a poor choice, because I didn't imagine the situation from their point of view enough. A lot of players will look at their poxy box and think "I've shown this ...
John Newman's bidding problem: AKQT7652 --- AKQ7 A
Therein lies the joke.
John Newman's bidding problem: AKQT7652 --- AKQ7 A
You mentioned bidding diamonds - when I asked a friend his plan with this hand, he said "This is the kind of hand you should think about setting diamonds". I like that logic.
