about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
We have a club with a director who's going to retire, and the players haven't been able to find a director to take it over.
Director Problem
The new law guarantees that at least 2 of the 4 pairs will have a normal bridge result on the board. With the old law, all 4 pairs could have an adjusted score.
What do you do?
4 wouldn't have been alerted during the auction even if it was conventional because it's above 3N (so, if anything, it would be a delayed alert).
Director Problem
That's what I thought too but then I looked at the post again, and it was N/S (the 1N opener and his pard) that bid the hand against both pairs.
ATB - Novices in a tough spot
1N has chances.
Keep Bridge Alive
My understanding (though I've never played it) is that bid whist is basically bridge with no dummy.
Superbowl Homework
I was counting the spade at trick 1. If W had pitched a diamond instead of a spade on the last round of trump, that would have meant another spade trick.
Superbowl Homework
If you play the king of clubs, you give up on the overtrick if E is down to 0=1=0=3 (because the clubs don't run and you've given up the entry to your hand for the last diamond).
Superbowl Homework
Okay, so then W had Qx of clubs (and knew declarer had the AK), and E played along by not pitching a club to create the picture that E was guarding clubs. W is 5=2=4=2, and E is 4=4=2=3. In the 4-card ending above ...
Superbowl Homework
RHO will give his partner a club ruff if you don't ruff the diamond high (if the queen is an honest card, and you can't tell whether it is because RHO didn't pitch). Declarer can still ruff out the diamond in the course of pulling trump, but ...
