Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Walking into the local club at the tender age of 31 (1980) armed with 16-18 and Blackwood that I had gotten out of a book. In a few months I got to play with a decent standby and we won. The next week we won again. And then ..."What is this club bid you call Stayman and I'm worried about my clubs?". And we didn't win.
Bridge Accomplishments
Winning 2 events at an old sectional when they only had 4. I had 200 masterpoints. My team won the thu bam and my partner and I won the sat open paris. There were no strats or flights.

Oren Kriegel's lead problem: K8 AT6 KJ43 J532
Don't do it as a routine. I've also seen leads like the 8 be the only lead that works.
James Vogl's bidding problem: xx AJxxxx Txx xx
I don't get a ruling. We don't have such luxury's. We just let their guilty consciences restore equity in the next and some more boards.
Andy Muenz's lead problem: T952 QT93 T6 KQ7
Isn't this hand huge and exciting? You lead the K and found partner with A9xxx. How could partner have enough hcp somewhere else to beat this? You're here and they're just in the BB and didn't find it.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: ATxx AKxx x AKxx
Okay. Just another Bluhmerology. 4 was partner's Bluhmer. In case partner has xxxx. There must be some reason why you didn't bid 2 which was so readily available.
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: K8 AT6 KJ43 J532
Okay, don't be Zia. He's not that good. But YOU just have feel for hands that break even """ OR WIN """!!!
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: K8 AT6 KJ43 J532
Try getting outta your box man. Don't hands come up that are begging you to be Zia? Lew Mathe told Eugenie that she is not allowed to lead from a king or a jack. When she went into the tank on opening lead, he said just lead. (I know ...
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: Q4 KQJ6 JT3 Q732
Opening in 3rd seat leads to more volatility than does a lesser hand with a 5 card suit.
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: K8 AT6 KJ43 J532
Looks like one of those hands not to underlead a jack or king.
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: K9762 7 J AKQT96
You or partner put no range on your card so it could be done and fielded with this hand. 5/6 and 6/5 have always been clearly part of it. Maybe you'll want to do something about your agreements after this hand.
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: K9762 7 J AKQT96
2 seems to have worked well. What are the chances partner can make a good decision after my 4 call?
