Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Striping a hand and forcing an expert player to ruff his partner's winner high or ruffing my loser high while I promoted my trumps in hand and dummy. When I was brand new to ACBL did a strip endplay in 3nt based off of auction and droping a stiff K to win bracket 2.

Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875
You're not, bridge is a percentage game. Since you don't have the hand you normally have I think the odds of pulling is the winning action here on average because you have quite a bit less defense then you would normally have (probably by 2 tricks) and offense ...
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
agreed, young kids and teens don't need to play the game regularly but they should be aware of it's existance and a good number should be taught how to play and play well.
Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875
because you were limited to a constructive - mild invite and now you're pulling his penalty double. Pulling a penalty double implies your bidding on extra shape. Since you had extra shape but was only able to make a mild inv at best you're not that strong on HCP ...
Paul Maris's bidding problem: 96 J97 AQ852 J73
I would compete further if they end in 2s or something but no I would not raise. It's still sem-balanced with no singletons. Happy to be in 3h but not serious about game and not dying to preempt opponents. Maybe insane is too strong of a word, 2s pass ...

4 , a good partner will get the message that we're bidding more on shape then strength.
Extra Length Transfer Bid
One restriction I see is with this structure 1M - 2c - 2d is always natural with 4d. Problem is with short 2c's these days it's nice to have a waiting bid in 2d not just always diamonds as sometimes you have no new suit to name, can't raise ...
David Sackett's bidding problem: K3 K9652 7 AKT72
Um, your suit is hearts it's to play?
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AKQJT --- A9862 AQ7
Isn't hesitations changing what you chose to bid exactly what they're NOT supposed to do? I was going to take a bid of 4s 2nd choice 4c. Why should partner's hesitation make me pass?
Goan Oei's bidding problem: Qxxxx Qx Ax QTxx
pass, hope partner can re-open with a double if they pass out 3s. Here's what we know for sure. E has ok spades and great heart support. It's not impossible for E to have the hearts and W actually having a preempt in spades. We can down them ...

I did the exact same thing as described, though unfortunately took me a min and not in tempo.
