Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing in final of NZ open teams C'ship 2000, screen mate for 64 boards, RHO, Geir Helgemo, on defence, I knew I had to switch to card from K10x with AJx in dummy to have chance to defeat contract.

Geir, champion, gentleman, scholar.

Brad Rind's bidding problem: AKQT6 K9853 732 ---
5 There is room for science here. I like to punt six level contracts, but I do not want to do so here where six could be hopeless or seven lay down. I want partner informed.

Not for me Craig. See above.

Pass Isn't this an OBARBIDS position? Or 3 The Law will protect me?
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: KQ8xxx Qx Jxx Kx
Student: I was too strong for .... And too weak for... Me: There is no such hand. There is a seamless transition between the two. I won't argue with your decision concerning one or the other, just do not Pass and commit an atrocity later in the auction.

2. I am willing to move, and I am interested in a fit.
Brad Rind's bidding problem: 4 KQJ85 KQ632 65
2 ought imply a fit for , but I am not enthused.
Ben Chosid's bidding problem: AQTxxx Q AKQxx J
7 The auction has an element of double cross about it, but, looking at our holding, in the light of partner's failure to Dble 7, surely the jump to 6 is based on a / hand including A
