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).

Steve Fama's bidding problem: 9764 AKQ8 AK 432
2 if that’s artificial (should be) and partner would take my subsequent 3 as a forcing raise (should be too).
What's your Line of Play?
Did 4 really show this hand type? Standard is to bid 3 (GF natural). 4 shows a slam-try with long, strong spades and shortness (self-splinter). In any case, at MPs it's clear to win the A and hook the spade. If it holds, cash A ...
Shawn Drenning's lead problem: J6 AQ8 K62 98753
It's weird if they, like many good players, have the agreement to lead second-highest from length w/o an honor. With such an agreement, they would lead the 8 or the 4th-best 5, but not the 9. Against a pair w/o that agreement the 9 is normal enough ...
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: --- AKQ9876 Q843 A6
Your comment implies 4 is stronger than 1->4. I play that it’s weaker, but don’t actually have that much namyats experience. Am I wrong?
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: JT95432 5 53 J75
Also undiscussed, though I don’t see what’s wrong with 4-level transfers.
Anant Rathi's lead problem: 8654 43 9842 KT5
Like most voters, I led a heart. It turns out partner had KQx and QJx Dummy was xx AKQx KQ10xx xx Declarer: AJ10x Jx AJ A10xxx On the run the of red suits, partner can come down to KQ x - Q; i.e ungaurd clubs to keep the long heart ...
Gabriel Carrasco's bidding problem: QJT97 A AQT85 J6
Isn’t it “standard” for 3 to be invitational? And 2 forcing 1 round, with a 3 follow-up game forcing?
Anant Rathi's lead problem: 8654 43 9842 KT5
3 implied hearts, clarified the description.
Walter Schmid's bidding problem: K 984 A AQJ98432
How do you raise spades? Or did you mean to say that Pazur = mild slam try in spades...?
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: Q94 QT863 Q32 62
Hmmm, opposite a spade hand that is too strong for 1, I thought this collection is closer to a game raise than 2.
