Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: --- A542 AK96543 53
I guess if you like undisciplined actions you may be eating a lot of -730's, but when partner has bid NT over their suit and they persist with that suit partner's X is telling everyone THEY have made the mistake. Plus, the juniors defend well, so....
Petition for NABC+ Midnight KO
Remember the Zip Swiss (or KO) song from 'The Music Man'? "Bid a little, drink a little, bid a little, drink a little, Bid, bid, bid, drink, drink, bid a little more..."
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
#5 on your list is a big item.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: K Q973 8654 AKT6
Yes. This is a matchpoint balancing act. I do not expect a lot of defense from partner, so I will not X unless they get to the 4 level. Cuts down on the doubled overtricks that way.
The Death of 4-Session KO's
Karen, I am talking about the Gopher regional held the week preceding Memorial Day. I believe in giving them what they want, not what we think they should have. You can see the 2019 schedule in Tourney Trax. Peg, my goal in setting a schedule of events is offering what ...
Rich Newell's bidding problem: 65 AT982 J72 JT2
2N. 4 is a transfer to 4, so since they have not bid game yet, why goad them into it. The last time I checked -170 was a better score than -300.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
Well, I remember the hand from an early Vanderbilt match in KC some years ago when responder held something like Jxxxxx, xx, xxx, xx. Partner opened 1 and he responded 1. Partner raised --- to 6. Making when the K was onside. Pard held AKxxx, A, x, AQJxxx ...
Kevin Lane's bidding problem: T J98765 A876 A4
1. Defending 4 partner will surely lead the K from Kx with Qxx on dummy and Ax in declarer's hand.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
Pass. This is IMP's, and if it goes X-P-P, you can make an SOS XX. The really good news is that your opponents get the same cards and the same headache. And 'hok me no chynik' about throwing the Opps off with a 1 bid. Try telling your ...
Board 14 2nd July 2019 Bermuda Bowl Sweden vs Netherlands
The 2nd USA goal by Alex Morgan was a thing of beauty all the way.
