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.

Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: x 9x AKJTxx Txxx
3!N over 2. Slightly iffy. Thank rho for the vote. Maybe they won't double 4 so fast. I was on the making side of redouble one time. Instead of down several.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: J86 QJ QJ9743 J3
What good are so many quacks. How many of them could be dueces instead and it wouldn't make any difference. I would rather trade them for a king.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: K5 AKJT32 A873 9
You can get lucky making splinter bids. It looks like not in this case. After partner's 4 over 4, you've just lost space. Showing the stiff club didn't do any good. When the auction is at 2, if you can anticipate, partner bidding 4 ...
Emanuel Evacic's lead problem: Q75 K873 QJ KQ98
Not necessarily get 5 club tricks. Maybe just see the dummy.

Ace for us, jack for them.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 5432 432 432 432
No problem, I was hoping for another chance with no 4 splinter. When the auction is at 2 and you're thinking about using space with 4, don't do it if you don't know what to do if partner bids 4.
Emanuel Evacic's lead problem: Q75 K873 QJ KQ98
We're going to get 5 tricks before they get a club and 8 tricks?
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 5432 432 432 432
Yea! Last time I had to waste space for nothing with 4. At least now I can re-last train with 4 instead of kickback.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AQ62 AJT2 A2 T97
Worrying is not the word. Wondering sometimes might be.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: 3 Q62 KT96 A9854
Look at all that potential. Mainly in diamonds. 5 or 6? Sure would be nice to know what partner's got. Maybe if I bid 1, I can find out something. I haven't played 4 in a 3-3 fit in a long time.
