Favorite Bridge Memory
Spring Nationals Sydney 2017 - qualifying to the semis and topping the pairs datums playing with my friend Ash for the first time. (although he has topped the datums in that event and won many (many) other nationals etc so....).
Bridge Accomplishments
Nothing that noteworthy, 2017 was the first year that I've had time to play National Tournaments in Aus which normally require several days off during the week.

Liam Milne's lead problem: J863 A AQ42 8542
You can tell quite a bit from the bidding Declarer is 24(34) or 2434 exactly, depending on opponents methods. Hearts are 5521. Pard has say 4 points on a good day. It doesn't look like a highly aggressive lead is called for, particularly because hearts are sitting badly ...
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 53 53 Q9 Q976542
If you can make 8 tricks you are risking 220, not 100!
A very basic auction?
Both approaches (3 as forcing or not forcing) pay a price. If your bidding system is geared towards achieving the best results in competitive auctions then I would assume NF will do better. However this means that you will have to cue or jump to force as opener, so ...
Delicate work
Problem with the A is that the opponents at some point can play another . If the North hand has to ruff then its unlikely it will have entries for winners unless the suit is distributed in a very friendly fashion. Probably entries to the North hand is the ...
Delicate work
Oh not sure if my previous comment is relevant anymore, it was in response to a different line which might have been edited before I finished posting. (Playing 3 rounds of 's immediately, pitching a ). Edit: nvm you still mention that. In both the lines you mentioned I ...
Delicate work
Hmm interesting like but does it work? So, suppose you start the first 3 tricks as you said, is returned which you win, you play the J which gets ruffed, pitching a . If the opponents return a you are in trouble if the player with 2 trumps ...
Delicate work
Even though it might not look intuitive, I think the correct line is to draw trumps. Overall, to the J at trick 2. Without going to deep into it, there are enough tricks most of the time if you don't incur undue ruffs. This is certainly true if ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q98 864 K74 KT74
By the way, if the opener doubles 3NT, redouble in my opinion looks like rescue, which would have to have 's as the longest suit... Because, If you had both majors you could have bid 4 originally or after 3NT (over the double) if you wanted to scramble ...

I'm well thanks! Yes I did mean rebid. Thanks for the very interesting point of view.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q92 AQ954 J43 Q4
Hi Marshall, how are you? What hand would you overcall 2N with? Also, if it is too weak for 2NT, what is wrong with 1NT? I see that you called it a glorified pass, can you clarify what you think the problem is with bidding 1NT?
