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.

Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: A643 AJT65 7 AK2
In most of my partnerships, 3 is natural and 5-5 (at least) in the red suits. In some it is invitational, in others forcing, but always with decent suits.
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I probably won't play this event, but I'm all for drop-ins in general, especially if they don't push out the lowest qualifiers. To my mind, the point of playing in NABCs is to play against tough fields. That being said, I'd be delighted to win a ...

Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AJ A9764 K853 85
I would have bid 3 over partner's 3.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: --- JT976 AT42 Q987
I would have bid 3 the round before.
Benjamin Bomber's bidding problem: Qxx x KQJTxx Axx
With my regular partners, I would bid 5, but it sounds like it shows 1st round control per your meta agreements.
Has this happened to anyone else?
My partner and I once put together two 53% games and placed in the overalls of a 2 session sectional pair game without scratching in either session.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: A32 KJ5 AK94 K83
I think Richard wants to know if 2C might be as weak as xx,xx,Jxxxxx,xxx or if it promises some amount of hcp.
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.
