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.

Peter Gal's bidding problem: KJ8654 854 6 KJ7
To get my hand across, bidding 2 would have been better than 1. I'm not going to have bidding 4 now save the world.
Tien-Chun Yang's bidding problem: Q743 A94 J95 KJ7
For sure lots of hcp counting in early rounds of NT auctions. But not blind slave to it. Low spade spots and spades around the table could be interesting. Is it making people bid 11 hcp about the same way they would bid 7 hcp? And if they had something ...
Charlie Chen's bidding problem: T92 JT75 Q93 KQ6
To the best of my recollections, partner needs a near perfect max. to make game. Odds against it. If this is one that makes game, it's because chances aren't zero. This is about the proportion of results posted and actual practice. Not "close" for me.
Third Hand Signaling Problem
Partner might still read 8 from 8x.
Third Hand Signaling Problem
In situations other than this there can be ambiguity which club I play. I expect the 8 is or will be readable by partner.
Bill March's bidding problem: --- AQT98x QJTxx Qx
I'm so curious what's going on. So I'm leaving room to find out.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: 3 KQJ53 KT952 T4
How about whatever happens after pass being worse than whatever happens after 2?
Gonzalo Goded's lead problem: J9853 T94 T2 863
If hearts is so great a place for them, they didn't run to 4. Or 4 of a minor.
Paul Holmes's bidding problem: A32 A32 J4 K9542
Between frequency (how many times in 35+ yrs, how many thousands of hands), wading through politics of the laws, belly-aching spiteful opps, a good job for director. Big difference between doing it and having somebody saddle having an agreement on you. Stop wasting guessing things happening that you can't ...
Paul Holmes's bidding problem: A32 A32 J4 K9542
1 - 2 is a well known problem auction. I have tried 1 a few times. Getting some hostility from opps when it works. I don't think 1N is anybody's solution for many reasons.
