Paul Lewis's bidding problem: Q6 KQ762 AJ9862 ---
I bid 4S - but LHO bid 5C! I was fixed and passed - but 5C made. Winning bid was 3D, as partner was 6-4.
Partner for Werner Open Pairs (or other)
Hi Stu, Strong NY-area player looking for a partner for Wehrner - last minute cancellation. 3400 MP (117 plat, 1000 gold), 60 Power Rating. Leave tomorrow, staying at Cosmo. Email paullewis321@aol.com.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: K643 K8 KQ9 AQ92
What is partner telling you? He didn't bid 5D - so you must be missing the ace of diamonds - BUT HE'S STILL INTERESTED! And he KNOWS that any finesses you might need are working. He must have something like AQJxxx A xxx xxx and need to know whether or ...
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: K643 K8 KQ9 AQ92
Reasonable question. Partner bid 5C. Perhaps she feared I was void in hearts?
Partner or Team Needed Atlanta Mon & Tues
Found a partner. Thanks to all.
Paul Lewis's lead problem: 3 732 KJT432 AT7
The diamond leaders won, as partner has Qx. In retrospect, I think this hand is instructive. Your diamond preempt did its job and made life difficult for East. Logically, anytime he has a strong hand with clubs, he doesn't have the luxury of needing 2 diamond stoppers to bid ...
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: Q62 K52 Q765 T64
Itzik is right on. Partner IS 1-3-3-6 and Pass WILL be a very bad score - this is OUR HAND and you can't let them steal. Your values are too soft for 3NT - unlikely you can run 9. I'm surprised nobody mentioned DOUBLE - cooperative ("BOP" is what my friend ...
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: AT543 KQ752 K K3
Undiscussed, but I think 3Nt would be to play - probably 2-2 in majors. 4C wiuld be slam try with ace of clubs.
Paul Lewis's bidding problem: AQ K92 KJT4 QJ85
My mistake - meant Sandwich, not Snapdragon.
Time For A New Statistic
Thanks, but I suspect you're confusing me with Paul Lewis who is married to Linda. My team finished 19th.
