about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

Michael Moschella's bidding problem: AQ AKT98532 --- AQ5
I’ll take my chances. I think the chances hearts are 8500 around the table > the chances LHO has some pointy red cards pretending to be hearts = the chances they pulled the wrong bidding card > the chances they happened to psych and pick off my hand here.
Michael Moschella's bidding problem: AQ AKT98532 --- AQ5
Assuming there's no typo in the auction, I'll pass now and bid 4H later.
Wolfhart Umlauft's bidding problem: --- KQ986 AKQJ7 AT2
There is that, yes. But of course we can't possibly distinguish between that and the same hand with the red suits switched.
Ian Rowlands's bidding problem: 2 KJ842 AT9 AK97
Having taken over for the poor fellow who had a medical problem after bidding 2C last time, there is very little upside in bidding now. Partner heard us bid our suits, raised neither, and failed to hit 3S for penalty.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: J8xxx Axx AKx xx
I mean, KQxx xx xx KQxxx sounds like a minimum and game is really good, ya?
Wolfhart Umlauft's bidding problem: --- KQ986 AKQJ7 AT2
I mean, I said I had a really strong hand (but not a strong 2C) with hearts and diamonds... and I have a really strong hand (but not a strong 2C) with hearts and diamonds. Bidding again is kind of calling partner an idiot, no?
Gad Chadha's bidding problem: AKQ 5 AK963 AK72
I figure I’ll show a strong hand, then bid my suit, then bid my other suit, and hope partner has some of one of those. If he does something to disrupt that plan that will be a good problem. When two Qxx’s make a grand possible, opening 1D ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A964 A85 K7 J976
The one thing you can’t do is pass. I wouldn’t be shocked if 6C was the winner, and might try it at IMPs.
Mark Jones's bidding problem: J9753 AKT987 6 5
Pass seems obvious (assuming this is South); partner has not promised any aces for his bidding after all.
Odd auction. What happened here?
Yes. (Ruff out clubs for infinity diamond pitches.)
