about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
You be the judge - a missed slam with tricks to spare!
I would have thought that whatever else is going on in this auction, 4D set trumps 100%. (It’s IMPs, so there’s no special need to try to nose out 420 instead of 400.)
Need urgent help
Depends if you’d bid 2D or double with Qxx x Q5432 AKQx.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: 6 KQJ75 QJT92 AT
I’m curious with what hands partner may be expected to not pull 3NT to 4S; to my mind he’s shown basically a one suited slam try in spades, yes?
Richard Fleet's lead problem: AJ97 AJ87 A76 65
But a heart is more fun when it works! (You’re right though.)
Richard Fleet's lead problem: AJ97 AJ87 A76 65
I’m hoping for a major suit king or queen, myself, with West stretching with a long minor source of tricks.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: 87 AJT9754 KJ QJ
Partner could easily bid 4S with this spade control he’s supposedly got in this scenario, though.
Is this an exception to a rule
He could as easily have QTxxxx xx Kxx Ax.
Ivan Borković's bidding problem: KQ A7 A964 AT953
Maybe too strong for that, no?
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T AQ853 A5 AKQ65
I’m guessing we are East, having doubled 1NT, and there’s a pass missing. There’s no science here, and partner can’t know what we are looking for, so I bid what I hope we can make.
What's the better line?
None of those three things is “clearly wrong”, let alone all three of them. Not even close.
