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.

Steve Moese's bidding problem: 9 KJT97632 7 754
That splinter in the notes escaped me. I think it took the only way I have of bidding this hand.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: QJ43 KQT53 9 862
I can't help what the other hands are. Mine says don't go there.
Mike Ma's bidding problem: QJ985 752 32 A96
It takes more than vulnerability to make me pass instead of bid 3.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: KQJT832 --- 9642 A6
The traditional meaning of 4 is more hcp than this. And I hate it. Especially when other players bid this way against me and do very well.
Bruce Greenspan's bidding problem: 942 AKT93 K42 63
I'll be happy with whatever happens in 4 for ave or better. I will not even envy +140.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: KJ965 2 --- QT98765
So many things can work quite well. One of those hands. And maybe who are the victims. The opps sell out to 6? Don't get to 6?
Steve Fama's bidding problem: A85 QT972 5 A762
Upon seeing whatever 4 is, that may be exciting. It is also exponentially opposite trying to respond to it.
How do you bid first ?
With affection: I think the code monkey behind this needs time to come up with some mega como results. I can see a pattern in this graph though. Oh how people really love short suit quacks.
Winston Chang's bidding problem: K54 JT432 J KJT9
My bidding is so brilliant. Just think if the auction goes around again, how much more brilliant I can be.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qxxx AJTxx ATx x
2 can also serve as an impossible negative when East bids over whatever West bids. East/West should get a PP or a strong warning that they will get one if they don't take this apparently implied agreement off their card or have system notes available for this ...
