about me

Once a bridge player, 50 years ago, with some red points.  Then reality set in.  I would never subject a partner to my inability to count.

James Huntington's bidding problem: KJ9642 AT863 3 5
I certainly don't want to defend 5 clubs, so I will chance spades, but bidding a second suit on the way may be fruitful.
Richard Willey's bidding problem: 932 K942 9 AKT62
What does 2NT mean in this auction?
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: T632 QT97 J962 J
3 sounds encouraging (which I don't want). Pass is inviting the situation or enabling OP to search for (and possibly find) the club fit. Isn't this the classic example for a preempt?
Dick Wilson's bidding problem: --- J98732 KJ864 T2
Partner has to have a defensive trick, and my king may be one as well. So does X call for a lead? Since I'm all alone on this, evidently not.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: --- AKJ3 KJ76 AQ865
2 cents a point was my introduction to the cutthroat "amateur" bridge racket. "Veteran rubber bridge player doesn't really cover it. It taught me I wasn't in that league.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: --- AKJ3 KJ76 AQ865
Where it's 2 cents a point.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: K AKT KJT93 AK85
On the premise that partner must have the ace, and at least 5 to the queen, 6 sounds reasonable.
Jon Green's bidding problem: 9875 9654 --- AK962
Too many losers to jump, particularly when my trump support has no honor. Can't play "results," and it would require a very particular set of cards from P, which I've no reason to expect. There's a reason why you pay attention to the percentages. For this exception ...
Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AKQJ653 6 Q5 J42
Given the possibility partner has a minimum (and could have a singleton trump) I can't think of my hand as worth more than the 7 tricks I'm looking at. 2 gives P the opportunity to clarify.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: QJ J98732 7 AK95
This is a classic mismatch. I could hope partner has 3 clubs to an honor, but passing is unthinkable (4-2 trump fit?). So I bid , trying to sound confident, and hope partner's KQ doubleton will descend like a deus ex machina to save the day.
