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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
John Cunningham's bidding problem: AQ KJ95 K52 KQT3
I would have bid 2Nt over 2, then left the decisions to partner.
What am I Asking
My meta-rule for undiscussed bids is that they should have the most natural meaning possible. For this bid, I think the natural meaning is "I'm inviting slam in Spades." If I'm wrong, partner will explain it to me after the hand.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: AQJ8 AKT85 K64 8
1-1, 1-1, 2 is the sequence to show this hand for most people who play the 1 relay you describe.
ACBL Masterpoint Insanity
The good players know who they are. The rest of us worry about master points.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: KT7 T8 65 AQJ963
2 doesn't show nearly this strong a hand and I prefer playing 3 as preemptive in this auction. That leaves me with a penalty double.
Thomas van der Hoeden's bidding problem: Q4 QJ643 AKQ KQ5
I would have bid 2Nt instead of doubling.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: KT5 J7543 A9 A86
Does 2C followed by 2N show a five card heart suit?
Jerry Murbach's bidding problem: 763 5 T765 KT852
I think if you plan to bid it would have been much better to raise immediately instead of waiting for the opponents to decide what they think they can make.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A64 AJ984 K6 AQT
I would have overcalled 2 rather than doubling.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: A4 86 AJ9762 KQT
I don't think the double is strictly penalty. Instead, it says that you are too good to pass, but don't have a clear bid.
