Refresher help in fundamental principles
Being in a 6-1 fit is not a bad day. Being in a 5-1 fit is a bad day. With a weak hand it is often right to bid 2. If opener has 3, great. Otherwise, your long may take tricks in 2 but not in ...
Bridge Players and the movie world
I haven't seen Peter Schneider mentioned. Disney vice president. Bridge world champion -- 2005 Transnational Teams.
What does 3 diamonds tell you?
Sounds like a splinter to me. 2 gives room for partner to show a stopper. Your partner should have opened 2NT (and gone down 2) like I did.
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Of course, the 3rd place team would not appreciate being unable to move up in the last match. Since the first place team had a significant lead after five matches, a match between the 2nd & 3rd place teams (who hadn't played each other) would have been more interesting and ...
Alert Procedure After Misbid

Am I insane,or is my partner?

Joseph Viola's bidding problem: AKJxxx Ax Txxx x

Joseph Viola's bidding problem: --- AKQ5 J92 KQ9653
I was the 3NT bidder and held Kxx Jxx AKxx ATx. Partner passed and after a lead away from the A, I made 7 for above average. I agree with partner's pass.
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: KQJT982 J 42 AT6
What would you bid with x-Kxx-Kxxx-Kxxxx. I would be tempted to splinter on my way to 5. Of course, partner's void may lead him to the right conclusion.
