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. I selected K which proved to be good enough. Geir, graciously, privately said, "Well defended Peter. If you examine the possible spot layouts closely, you'll see that the 10 is slightly better." Geir, champion, gentleman, scholar.

Aviv Zeitak's bidding problem: QT973 82 A97 AQ6
Not enough information to answer the question. e.g. Was 3 pre-emptive or limit?
Todd Holes's bidding problem: --- AKQ975 AKT85 A9
I agree with what you say David. Unfortunately that is not the knot we were asked to unpick.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: A2 AK76 K8754 AK
Ahead of your time Richard, ahead of your time. Next thing will slip out that you played relays too. :->
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: A2 AK76 K8754 AK
2NT, but only if 2 is non-forcing.
Paul D East's bidding problem: KT6542 75 --- AJ753
4 This is the vulnerability to butt the opponents. Nonetheless I recognise this is a bit gung ho. Pass and backing in doesn't work IMHO and 2 is little better than Pass. 1 is OK as is 3, but I'm feeling lucky to day.
Todd Holes's bidding problem: --- AKQ975 AKT85 A9
Pass. Q1 How many does partner have? A1 At least 4. (No raise) That leaves 8-9 cards to cover your , trump and deep position. Q2 How many cards does E have to cover those same losers? A2 At least 11. It may depend on what the partnership ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K943 AT6 A AT752
@Lynn H If your bidding methodology includes a gadget that provides for the direct cue bid to show this hand good luck to you. Nonetheless, IMHO to assert that failing that "2 is the correct bid" is misguided. With a potentially full blown opening bid on your right and ...
BBO Censorship?
You mean to tell me Ron that's not Running (for) a Train? :->
East double crossed himself and his partner. Hard to blame West whatever you think of the merits of his bidding.
Who is at fault?
Taken to the cleaners by those ^%^&*&^%% E-W again. Move on. Next!
