Declared Candidates for 2019 District Director Elections
The other issue is that the further removed from power the volunteers are, the more likely you are going to have less volunteers to do the needed work for local and regional tournaments to survive. I live in Minnesota and with my wife winter in Florida and have already started ...
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J8643 KQ96 8 K74
Game might make, but at matchpoints I am just hanging partner fro a competitive bid. Partner will start passing with minimum hands and 4 card support if I start raising on this hand.
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
I might risk 3 in a game where I am playing weak opponents, here it is just a guess, but I think the odds are about 2 - 1 against me with decent opponents. I also would have bid 3 clubs the first time.

Mystery of Barry Crane

David Caprera's bidding problem: Txx --- ATx AKJTxxx
We are in a forcing auction. So I pass for partner to further describe his hand. Expect it to go 5 dbl by partner and now I will have to make the guess, but am leaning toward passing 5 doubled as partner my well have too many wasted ...
Sean McNally's bidding problem: AT98xx Kx AK Axx
Conditions of contest not always assumed.
Ron Smith's bidding problem: 2 863 KQJT95 842
Am afraid that most of my partners would interpret 4NT to be 2 places to play. That could be fatal.
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: T93 AT8 AQT87 74
I would have bid 3 as a fit jump so partner could have an idea. Now I would Dbl with only 3 hearts and 2 bullets.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: J5 QT2 KT2 KT865
I actually held this hand last night and passed. Would need a 4th heart to consider bidding. Partner did not call and I did not see a logical path to entering, when they could still make 4 hearts and partner could still have 4 - 5 spades.
