Do people really think 3 will end the auction?

Played on several teams with Kenny in the '90s. He was a nice teammate. Yes, his bidding was aggressive! RIP

The best laugh in bridge history, never to be exceeded, belonged to the late Grant Baze. You could hear it on the opposite track at Grand Central with two trains coming in.

Sorry I have 5 of the suckers. I'm playing parther for 3. I think there are likely 15+ total tricks and I will have a big advantage in the play.

What an awful problem. My bid to show minors is at the 4 level and totally misdescribes this hand. Any time you double a heart preempt without spade support you better have a self-sufficient suit to run to. I choose 3 Clubs, my best suit. I am not going out of my way to show both suits because the overwhelmingly most likely game is NT.

I chose 4NT. I would like 5 as a value bid but I do believe that that specifically asks for 2nd round diamond control, so it wouldn't help me here.

Partners don't open weak 2's in second seat for many reasons, especially vulnerable. I think it is clear to move here.

So sorry to hear of Beth's passing. She was an asset to the bridge world beyond her sparkling play.

Without regard to the sanity of the 5 call (why didn't he just bid 3 - the vulnerability didn't change mid-board), misbidding isn't illegal. It sounds like you can prove you misbid. If it was misinformation that would be a different story.

Also, ave/ave is ridiculous. Assign a bridge result if you are going to adjust.

@Kevin Cline - No this was in response to Mr. Edwards to show that we do still emphasize the concept of “Active Ethics”.

I do. Read my columns in the Bulletin. Look up “For the Record” in the March and April 2018 issues. Both articles are about active ethics. Check out https://www.acbl.org/conduct-and-ethics/active-ethics.

“Now that the recorder system is going away, what does one do with hands like this? ”

I am the ACBL National Recorder and this is news to me. So while I still have a job I suggest you go to https://www.acbl.org/conduct-and-ethics/player-memo/ and fill out a Player Memo.
