Improving the ACBL Collegiate Bridge Bowl
Oh, I don’t think the trials, whatever form, should begin before late October. I would prefer to see them in January or later. It gives time to get more people to start playing if they don’t already. It gives time for students to settle in and get to ...
Improving the ACBL Collegiate Bridge Bowl
The most important point is to get as many people to the Nationals as possible. We teach bridge in the High Schools in San Francisco. (Off-and-On in a middle or grade school.) We fund for at least 4 students to go to the Summer Youth Nationals. The years we get ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: Kx J9xxx x J9xxx
This needs a follow up question if you choose to X. If P bids 1NT, do you pass?
Choice of Lies
It's a GF hand with 6+ and shortness in a major. It doesn't say it is a GF to five of a minor.
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: AJ92 7643 AKQ2 6
A quick gut reaction is that 3 would be asking partner to bid 3NT with a stopper. So, you should bid 3NT yourself since you have a stopper. I don't agree on this particular hand OR auction. First, you have no ten-aces to protect. Clearly, the ...
History of Serious 3NT
I have always played you don't cue-bid shortness in partner's naturally bid suit on your first chance to cue-bid his suit. If there is still more cue-bidding going on, you can cue-bid the shortness "on the next round". It will be clear it is shortness. If Key Card ...
Anant Rathi's lead problem: J6 65 9763 Q9754
I have held hands, similar to yours, where I want to get declare's second suit lead. At times it seems logical to suggest we play that if only one other suit is bid, the double means leads that suit. But, you can't have it both ways if you ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: 7 QT84 Q872 KQJ4
About 7-9 of us in San Francisco, including all our juniors, play 2N as a 4(+)-card LR(+). It is/(has been) very successful for us. Otherwise, we would probably change!
Harlan Hullinger's bidding problem: 8 T832 Q93 J9874
If it weren't passed 3N, I would alert 4N and describe it as a "Torture Bid". :)

"Universal among experts" is a moving target. Case in point: Almost all played (1x)-P-(1Y)-1N as a two suited hand, at least until 3-5 years ago. But at the top level of bridge most have returned to 1N being a 15-17 NT. Commentators point o"Universal among experts ...
