about me

I am a C.P.A. and enjoy bridge for the logic of it.  Started in college (UNC) but, luckily not until my last year.  Ran local games for over 30 years with my wife.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

What does this 2NT bid mean?
If natural and invitational it would have been made the last round.
Poll on Psychs - 1
I once psyched against my wife and she was really upset, saying you do not psych against friends. My reply was that doing so would put her at a great advantage, knowing whatever I bid was NOT a psych.
Poll on Psychs - 1
Buddy, I agree. We have to decide if it is a true psyche. In addition to your examples I often bid 2NT over partner's weak two bid with nothing to try to slow down the opponents.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: JT542 AJ3 KJ2 KT
At the table there was some feeling that if East wanted to be in game opposite a randon 10 count, all of West's cards were prime values and certainly LOOKS like better than just an extra king. Ruffing value and an extra trumps.
my hand tells me partner has misbid
Pard certainly could have 6's here. I try never to decide partner bid wrong. If he meant it for the majors it is his fault, but if he did not and I pull, it is my fault.
Should you duck Kx?
We have all been in this position many times, and guess right (and wrong). The closeness of the vote shows this. Assuming declarer has more than 2 and not the 10 or 9 they have a loser no matter what they do and might have just played ace and out ...
Where did East-West go so far wrong on this hand?
West should never pass 5 knowing the double fit. Why did East not just raise 's initially instead of doubling?
This was a weak pair, and, if they play transfers, I am guessing they had not discussed interference. Rather than risk a misunderstanding of 3 or 4, North picked a call that could not be read wrong.
Peg, no, they apparently were not. I did not bother to look after 4 was passed.
At least you got partner off to the right lead. North bid 4 on x, AKxxxx, xxxx, xx and caught South with xxx,xxxx,AK,AKQx. Making 6 or 7 depending on the lead.
