Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Choice of Games
Given that partner's doubleton is opposite the AQ9 makes the decision close. If the doubleton was opposite one of our weaker 3 card suits, of course there would be strong preference for 4.
CONGRATULATIONS to Team Gupta, the winners of the USBF Invitational 1 Tournament!
Great use of BBO for holding the event. Hopefully this can be used as a test case for holding more events online in the future. Congratulations to Gupta winning the event four-handed. Congratulations to the Robinson team also on a strong showing in the event. Keep in mind that they ...
Keith Connolly's bidding problem: AK765 --- Q6 AKQ862
Cuebidding 5, followed by 6 on the next round of bidding should get partner to bid 7 with the A & Q.
Mike Passell's bidding problem: xxx x Axxx KQTxx
Seems odd to take up the entire 2 & 3 level in showing 18-19 balanced. Perhaps if other methods were played so that responder can safely describe their shortness and/or their strength below 3nt, that would be better. There are many hands where 3nt is the limit opposite ...
Jim Fox's bidding problem: 92 AJ654 QJ A854
Would not have bid the same on any of the first 3 rounds of the auction.
Leonard Hall's bidding problem: 82 853 KQ875 AJ6
Had to double check that this is not April 1 and this was posted as an April Fool's joke.
Bridge Clubs are opening on Monday in Turkey.
It depends what your definition of a "huge mistake" is. The majority of the clubs may be fortunate and not have any players directly killed from COV-19. Even in that case, some asymptomatic player may transfer to others. Players may pass it along to others where they live.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AJ9543 AKQ9 9 T3
Agree that the hand is worth a 3 rebid with a pure 64 hand. Not sure if I agree on the meaning of 2, but probably not a bid to throw on a partner without discussion before hand.
David Parsons's bidding problem: Q942 3 KQJ72 KQ7
Why did we not make the obvious 3 call on the last round of bidding? Partner balanced 2 only knowing that we held 4+. With KQJxx, we had an automatic 3 call.
Hank Youngerman's bidding problem: A873 K82 K9 A987
Perhaps you gave us a different hand, but the one that we bid on was 4324, not 4333. We have 6 controls (4 control cards of A/K/K/A). We have a very suit oriented hand. I call the 1nt a hand hogging bid rather ...
