When asked by the director of 2003 NABC+ Fast Pairs if I am sure that I deserve a seed and I said probably since we won the event last year.

Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A2 A943 9743 Q93
I bid 2nt at this point (my passed hand could not be much better, but there was still some uncertainty on partner's configuration). Partner raised me to 3nt and I played it there. Partner held: KQxx K Qx AJ8xxx Opponents led Q, which I ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: T73 QJ2 JT3 T754
I made the aggressive choice to bid over 2nt with this hand (most 4 counts vul at IMPs you just blast a game, but this was a 4333 shape without any Kings or Aces). This was the final board (board 12) of the 1st quarter in a GNT match. Boards ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT98 AJ42 KQ A73
I bid 4 and played it there, hoping to catch a dummy that would require some guessing on my end. Turned out that I caught a dummy that made the play no problem when opponent led K at trick 1, trumps split 31, and there were no terrible ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A653 AQ A3 QJT98
I chose 2 on the hand and played it there. The opponents are in a known 8 or 9 card heart fit; partner has <5 since they passed 2, but the odds favored finding them with 3 or 4 . Partner held: KJx 10xx ...
Plan for a Grand
Kit, I agree completely with your analysis that LHO had more potential 3 card layouts to play from than RHO's 2 card holdings. These were sound card players, but I felt that LHO was not good enough to think through the importance of randomizing their plays from the 247 ...
Plan for a Grand
At the table, I had the exact same thinking as Kit states in his response when it comes to handling of a potential 50 break or 41 break. I won the 1st trump in hand, cashed a 2nd rd of trumps (they split 32 with it seeming that ...
Mike Gill's bidding problem: AKxxxx AQTxx xx ---
The only part of the auction that seems questionable is passing 3 with this hand. I believe that this 4 loser hand is worth taking a shot at 4 after partner moves our 3 bid back to 3. Partner could have as little as: xx ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT98 AJ42 KQ A73
3 is the weakest general game try; 3// would have been long suit game tries; 2nt would have been balancedish INV (~8/9 HCP w/ relatively balanced hand, offering 2nt/3/3nt/4 as final contracts.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT98 AJ42 KQ A73
North showed an intermediate playing strength hand on this auction; they either have 15-17 balanced OR 11-15 HCP with shortness somewhere, which equates to a medium strength playing hand for . North denied 11-14 balanced as they would have opened that hand 1nt.
Sven Pride's bidding problem: A753 KJ973 5 J72
Partner's bid over 4 if they have a real opening bid is 4.
