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.

Bridge Bidding Principle #92: When it sounds like partner is looking for support for a suit, it's best to only bid that suit when you have it.
ATB - How did we let this through?
I would have blown a different trick (spade) on opening lead. I think that's still probably good enough.
How would you rule?
What if West pitches a diamond? Now how do you know what to return? (Sure, he can never make it that way, but that get a lot of -1 equity perhaps?)
How would you rule?
Ew. I think some weights to all of 3NT= (three clubs, then a bad switch, or North leads a low heart), 3NT-1 (North leads a big spade), and 3NT-4 (proper defense) are all in order. I don't know the players enough to have details. Have fun questioning and polling ...
Ignominious Senior Push
An ove-- oh that's neat!
Everyday situation
Not necessarily a super-relevant question. Something like QJx/KJx or so with some outside values would be ideal.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KQT 965 KQT6 AT6
What else was partner to do with xx Jxxx Axxxx xx?
Everyday situation
Penalty, but not based on a trump stack. I just can't imagine doubler having a hand that is supposed to pull if they had their first bid (no,4045 doesn't qualify)
David Corn's bidding problem: T652 AQ65 74 AQ8
Responsive doubl-- oh.

The next time I see a suggestion that someone is being (even "somewhat") unethical for playing a system that is legal under the rules and is disclosing it in the manner prescribed by their regulating authority, I'm gonna bust a cap in someone.
