Retired Justice John Paul Stevens, Associate Justice, SCOTUS
Yours is a neat story too Howard. I did not know that Martina Navratilova plays bridge also!
Retired Justice John Paul Stevens, Associate Justice, SCOTUS
Neat story Jeff, thanks for sharing! Looks like you showed that us citizens were very appreciative of Justice Stevens service to our country. I did not know that I was only two degrees of separation from a Supreme Court Justice!
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thank you Fred! I got a chance to play vs. you once in a Vanderbilt about 10 years ago(?), after the match I think I verbally told you how much I appreciate BBO, or at least I hope so. I love watching Vugraph of nationals and world championships! Because of ...
5-5 Major Hand After Partner Opens 2NT
Nice K unblock! Glad we didn't play this hand vs. you!
5-5 Major Hand After Partner Opens 2NT
Partner had AQ A3 Q973 AKJ85. On this hand, the winning contracts are 4 or 3NT. See Board #5 of http://thecommongame.com/NitePDF/190516NiteHandRecord.pdf for the entire layout. Like 88/100 people so far, I chose to show my 5-5 game-only hand by bidding 3 and ...

Partner had xx A53 AKJx QJxx. Declarer was 6-6 in the majors with a stiff diamond. The winning defense was HQ to HA, heart ruff, diamond to the K, another heart ruff. I unfortunately led a diamond and Declarer made 4H. Everybody on the poll did better than me on ...
Mark Chen's lead problem: 42 A732 T95 AJ83
Probably seemed like a boring problem, I thought a diamond lead was called for also. Survey has T(25), 5(1), and 2(3). The layout is Board #8 at http://clubresults.acbl.org/Results/139386/2019/01/190124E.HTM. On this hand, the A lead is needed. Poll seems ...
Attitude or Count Signal?
Thanks all, got lots of replies to this post, some relevant and some on a tangent. Declarer had Jx KQT9x x AKTxx and was cold after winning the A, cashing Q, and leading to her T. Partner had KQ9xx A AQxx Jxx, won his A, and then underled in spades ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: K52 AQ4 A953 K53
As of now there are 25 passers and 9 1NT bidders. LHO opened light with xx KTx KJxx Axxx, RHO stole from us by bidding 1 with JTxxx Jxx Txxx x. The Opponents bid uncontested 1-1-1NT-2!-2 (2 is an invite or a diamond ...
