about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six. I played casually for the next 20+ years then joined the ACBL in my late 20s and have slowly but progressively grown more serious about bridge. Now in my mid 60s, I'm more enthusiastic than ever and still working to improve my game.

Poaching Jon Green's Post regarding the Common Game of 2/12
In B, I like using the cue bid to show 3 card support in a strong hand (17+), but I don't think it is game forcing opposite a bust.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AK76 KT4 AT7 AQ6
You also have 4 key cards and a King in the remaining suit. Partner may have a hand that makes slam but cannot underwrite going to the 5 level unless you cue bid. That being said, I voted for 3.
Alan Frank's bidding problem: AQ873 83 AJ AQ42
Perhaps your partner should wonder if he should have bid more.
Play this slam
I think the 3rd option should be low club to the 8. Also 9 should be 8 in a later option.
Hua Yang's bidding problem: 42 AK8642 82 T42
I also would not have passed originally. At my second turn, I would have bid 4 (or 4 if that is a transfer in our system).
Jack Spear's lead problem: A Q32 Q2 AKT8432
I don't want to get thrown in with the A, so I'll get it out of my hand.
Roman Key Card Queen ask
Spiral scan isn't widely used in the US. Can you point me to a reference? Thanks
Gregory Gauthier's bidding problem: T9853 A9632 T6 5
This depends on your agreements about the negative double. I like to play it as showing specifically 4-4 in the majors.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AT84 QT975 654 J
I would have doubled 2 instead of bidding 2.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: K2 AT753 K963 AK
I expect partner to bid 4 as last train with two key cards and the queen of trump.
