Favorite Bridge Memory
When asked by the director of 2003 NABC+ Fast Pairs if I am sure that I deserve a seed and I said probably since we won the event last year.

Jim Perkins's bidding problem: KQJT 762 A KJT98
What is the 1nt opening range? At least give that information as an option.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 2 AK4 A82 KQ8543
The opponents 1nt opening is 12-14; I tried to clarify their possible hands for the 1 opening in the description. The double of 1nt by them tended to show 17-19ish balanced. I agree with you that although the hand was 18 HCP, the real valuation was more like 16 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 2 AK4 A82 KQ8543
I saw positives to passing (planning to bid later if appropriate) and overcalling 1nt. On the basis of valuation of our hand, 1nt was accurate with our good 16 count. Yes, the one big drawback is the singleton little . It seemed unlikely to me that if I pass ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AK6 A765 KT54 A5
I made the decision to try for 6nt, 7, or 7nt when I heard partner overcall 4. I chose 5, over which partner bid 6. I then signed off in 6nt. Opening lead from the 3 preempter was the Q, and dummy tabled with ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K4 AJ74 862 K985
I made a great mistake on this hand when I bid 2. I thought too much that my holding could not be much better on the auction, since I showed 1 or 2 with the 1nt and I hold Kx. I thought that if partner only held ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: Q9754 86 AT975 T
I was very tempted to double with the hand, since it sounded like terrible splits for the opponents with partner doubling 3, I hold a side ace that is far from necessary for a favorable preempt, and I only had a 5 card suit (which makes wanting to ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AT84 A4 QJT KQT6
At the table, I bid 4 in my usual tempo (very fast). I saw positives and negatives to bidding 4 and 4. Bidding 4 by me would not have denied a control on this auction, but it would have put the brakes on my expectation ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: AT84 A4 QJT KQT6
I am referring to the clarification from my explanation of what constitutes a balanced hand on this auction. "No; 5 card suit 5422 5332 5431 with singleton A or K".
Mark Chen's bidding problem: x Kxx Jxx AKT8xx
"Normal methods" may not be having 3nt to play. When partner makes a wide ranging Michaels bid, it is tough to know that you can take a stab at 3nt. I like playing the method where 4 here by the advancer would be pass or correct for the overcaller ...
Paul D East's bidding problem: 8 A AKQJ32 KJT52
Given that you do not tell us what methods we are playing, I will play my methods of balancing 2nt = 2 lowest suits.
