Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Walking into the local club at the tender age of 31 (1980) armed with 16-18 and Blackwood that I had gotten out of a book. In a few months I got to play with a decent standby and we won. The next week we won again. And then ..."What is this club bid you call Stayman and I'm worried about my clubs?". And we didn't win.
Bridge Accomplishments
Winning 2 events at an old sectional when they only had 4. I had 200 masterpoints. My team won the thu bam and my partner and I won the sat open paris. There were no strats or flights.

Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Jx KQxx x QJxxxx
Now that the auction has gone this way, I think it is best to get her done.
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: Q43 Q53 A4 KQT53

Ben Kristensen's bidding problem: Q QT QJTxx AKQxx

Poll on Psychs - 1

Poll on Psychs - 1
Psych is defined very insufficiently. It needs to be expanded. I don't mind confronting defiances of logic and efficiency. Of course they have their way of handling me too.
Poll on Psychs - 1
People call bids that I make that they would never do psychs. That's not my definition of psych. So I never psych. All of my bids have a purpose. The frequency of my purposes depends on how often they come up. In a Grand National qualifying I opened 1 ...
Play Problem
I've asked questions like that. Then I get flashbacks on their mannerisms when I get it wrong.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T7 --- AKQJT86532 9
I notice you used the word trumps. What do I call this diamond suit? 10 tricks. Unlike somebody I know that has even called an 8 card suit notricks.
Play Problem
I think I can take down 1 when the spades are 1-3. I don't even want to think about down 1 when the spades are 2-2.
