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.

Improve my analysis!
Partner had better hold four hearts, else declarer has five and has bid this very strangely. But his hearts aren’t very good (no heart lead)... so I think it’s worth trying for the spade queen opposite.
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: 964 T2 KQ854 875
Well, we know hearts aren’t breaking, but clubs may be...
Anthony Pettengell's bidding problem: A984 4 984 KJ873
Imo, closer to a slam try than a 3S bid. Not particularly close to either though.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: A54 AK2 AKQ5 J32
To answer the next question: if partner bids three of something, I’m passing.
Opp Sacrifice at Matchpoints
I’d have bid 3S as East. I’m still not sure either party should go to 5H. (West has the right shape for 2H but not quite enough values IMO.)
Reduce UI
Erm, wouldn’t that be in view of tomorrow’s date?
Max Schireson's bidding problem: T97 82 AQJ843 87
3NT is just the sort of bid I might make with a client who wants masterpoints — but, mind you, not too many of them.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: T97 82 AQJ843 87
The WJS did at least cross my mind, but it’s as likely to preempt partner as LHO. That said, if this is in your range at this vulnerability, the hand is perfect for it... I could be convinced.
Doubling opponent's Landy
Stayman. No, it’s probably not optimal, but on the other hand, it’s really easy to remember. Plus, have you SEEN what people are interfering with these days?
Declining the revoke penalty
I for one have total faith in the ability of low level directors to fairly adjudicate all such matters of what would have happened in subsequent play. (If not for that human foible I don’t actually hate the concept —but that’s a pretty big elephant in the room ...
