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.

Richard Fleet's bidding problem: Q62 K9642 Q7 A54
Personal/partnership preference. This hand has multiple strikes against it. A better heart suit. The Q in a longer suit rather than a short suit. Some more 10's or 9's or another jack or 2. Partner can't use any of those to make 3N when you don ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: Q62 K9642 Q7 A54
3N makes every/other time.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: 6 A9874 K5 KQ873
I'm playing partner's 2 and rho's 3 to not have helped in giving out info on side suits. So I'm bidding 4 rather than 4 to further obfuscate info for lho.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: Q62 K9642 Q7 A54
If I open 1 and partner bids 1N, I have to pass, right? I haven't figured out why anybody has this on their card.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: 6 A9874 K5 KQ873
I don't want to defend 3 or 4 spades. I think lho is the one most in need of info. I'd rather have him/her guess.
Would you call for the director?
The first thing that struck me upon seeing Jeff's post, was simplicity. I grabbed at an easy answer. His wording in the title and poll choices says a lot to me. A whole lot of info in the comment follow-ups. I still would not "call for" or ever "call ...
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: ATx 98xx QJx AJx
I don't look at it as lying. Yes, I thought about the heart situation. And how I don't see solace with anything I do.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AQJT5 KQJT6 6 AJ
I think this hand is awkward hcp, controls, distribution, and auction. 4 and hope.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: A974 6 J8543 AJ5
I have a mtchpt field and opps. And maybe how's my game going. And I've been looking over these for years. Most recent ones that seem to work well have been exactly 4 spades 333 and 10-12 hcp. This one's a little different.
Would you call for the director?
There could have been different poll options. No. I would not call the director. Yes. I think if somebody wants to call the director, that is fine. Hopefully, the director listens and everybody knows it is time for him/her to leave.
