about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

Solvable?
"Responder wont bid 2N (13-15 BAL, could have a 4 card M), when he holds Qxx or Jxx in one major" I don't see why Qxx/Jxx disqualifies the hand for 2N, can you elaborate?
Plan the play in 6NT
a) Win K, Cash AQ and (assuming that suit isn't coming in yet) Q. Assuming LHO does not show out, float the 8. If it loses to an honor, LHO cannot return a heart. Say they return a club. Win in dummy, cash AK and K (pitching the last ...
What is this double?
Undiscussed, it should be taken as penalty - or, if most of your peers adopt this style, as penalty of spades. What *should* it be? I think Steve Moese's answer is correct, except I definitely wouldn't expect 13-14 HCP.

Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: 2 AJ9 KQ8743 A84
I think 4N should show a softer hand - like KJx KQx in the round suits instead of Aces
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: 2 AJ9 KQ8743 A84
I agree with Richard that we must make a slam try. Another example:: KQxx Kxx(x) Axx Kx(x) Is 4 natural, or a cue? Definitely the latter if we would bid 6-4 hands a different way. Even otherwise, I would risk trotting it out undiscussed. If partner "raises ...
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: K A95 K74 AQJT43
I think the hand is too strong for 3. We need to reach 3N if partner has K & A Now, if you play that 3 shows significant extras (perhaps Bad-2N was available), then it's a great bid. But I assume we'd readily bid 3 if ...
Competing over a strong NT with a strong hand
"Mel Colchamiro suggests 4th seat should balance holding any singleton" At a major training session for the USBF Junior program 2 years ago, the mentors (Josh Donn and Michael Rosenberg in particular) gave the exact same advice.
