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.

Bill Segraves's bidding problem: KJT73 2 AKQ98 43
With our 3 bid, we told partner that we have 5 & 4+. We have one more with a broken suit and a misfitting 13 HCP. This hand has no reason to think of taking another call over 3nt. You deserve to transfer a plus score ...
A better rating system
One of the larger thread discussions about masterpoints was based on the opinion of some that online points should be counted completely separately from other ACBL masterpoints. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/acbl-lifetime-masterpoint-lists-3/?cj=137417
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: QJ642 4 63 QJT54
Did we really bid just 1 the first time with this hand?
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: T87543 K8653 --- T4
The person who held this hand bid 6, which was doubled and went down 3 for -500. If we end up defending the hand in 6 (doubled or undoubled) and we find a or lead, we set it 2. If we lead a , it makes ...
Jim Munday's bidding problem: Kxx QT9x x Qxxxx
There are 2 "logical alternatives" with this hand that clearly stand above the rest: Pass or 3. This is based on your poll (where you had many more answers) than the poll given on site. Does the slow pass from partner suggest making one bid or the other? What ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A85 32 87652 A97
Serge, you apparently do not understand my explanation for why a double of 3 would almost never occur. The only hand that can hold a stack against me is the responder, and if they have a penalty double their partner may take the push and bid 3 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 6 94 AK97 JT8632
I almost passed it out as red all seems to be the worst vulnerability to bid here. However, the opponents were in a known 8 or 9 card fit, partner almost certainly had just 5 (they would usually rebid 2 over 2 with 6 and ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A85 32 87652 A97
The opponents have landed in a 44+ fit at white all with just over 1/2 of the HCP. Rather than pass and let them play there, I balanced 3. I did not double since partner certainly does not have 5 , the opponents are less likely to ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 9765 A742 A3 K43
I bid 2 and played it there. It seemed a near certainty that E/W were finding a comfortable fit/contract, and white all I figured the chances were not high that I would be doubled and get a terrible result. My LHO does not have 4 on ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: QT85 K96 T8 A963
At the table, I figured that partner would have the medium strength and slightly unbalanced hand (i.e. 15-16 HCP with a singleton ). I felt that 18-19 would always just bid game, and 12-14 would always just pass. With my interior spots and good control of , I accepted ...
