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.

I noticed that is the #1 answer for what East should do.
Help Newer Players Reach Slam
East should rebid something like 3 over 3. Partner, I have a stronger hand than you probably believe. Stronger than a jump to 4. If West bids 3N and East 4, West should bid on. Under the context that East didn't bid 3 (forcing ...
Rajeev Jog's bidding problem: 876 KJ QJ732 AJ2
I think the others at the table are bias from seeing the other hands. Between passing and t/o* there can also be a bias. You can have your bids or you can push to see how much you can get away with.
Can Berktaş's bidding problem: Q76532 AT875 --- 75
Partner isn't raising hearts. He is forced not to pass 2. This spade suit with no texture is more like a 5 card suit. After 2 it's more like imagination gone wild to bid again. It seems like this hand has done plenty by bidding 2 ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: KJ854 AK3 --- KQT64
Sorry about that. I should have reread. I did mean in general those that make a t/o* are not discussing a followup too much.
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: KJ854 AK3 --- KQT64
It seems like the t/o* is more like at least 2 cards off. 1 less heart and 1 more spade. (1 less dia and 1 more club?) I do have sympathy for the strength problem in hearts and spades. AKxxx and Kxx would be better. Nobody wants to get ...

I don't.
Tolga Pezük's bidding problem: AJx Qx Axxxx Axx
Lynn, you're using marketing techniques. But I haven't seen anything proving you're not just playing a game with the x's.
David Sackett's bidding problem: K92 A83 T62 Q863
The distribution of the mjs seems mysterious. And hcp strength. Both N and S are light? North's 1 bid picked off partner's dia suit?
