Beyond over the hill but not hope.

Cherish BW discussions.

I like thoughtful comments and apolitical analysis.

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.

Or serious/non-serious slam interest. Excluding 3N and 4.
Larry Sealy's bidding problem: QT7 K83 AJ6 AK95
Mostly so far when I have these, I bid 3N, make it, get a good board, or go down and get a bad board.

Agree. Amusingly, if you pass, your coy lho now stepping stones your auction with a belated 2 call. Partner bids 2 and you can bid 3.
Mike Heins's bidding problem: JT93 642 AT8 KQ6
Partner's double should be for the minors at the 2 level. Rho has about 2 minor suit cards. If I'm crashing a party at the 4 level, I'll try 4.

And I thought you had a different mysterious agenda. Not that this isn't fun.
David Parsons's bidding problem: J73 KQ98654 --- J98
I would try to clear up a different issue. Judgment. Partner's comments seem to be his opinion about judgment not agreements. There may be give and take possible.

Evidence not proof. The difference? Make an accusation and find out at YOUR peril.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: AK2 QJ742 6 KQ73
Maybe I don't know bidding basics. I might bid 2 with a lesser hand. And maybe partner will now bid 3 and you will bid 3. I don't know. That's why I'm posting. Another poll coming.

Why even play mtchpts at all if you think passing even comes closer to what your hand is than bidding 3? And somehow something saves you for passing.
