Rich Newell's bidding problem: AQ83 J2 KT AK942
Too good for 1NT.
Leonard Hall's bidding problem: QT43 JT96 AT92 K
I bid 2D in case partner has his eye on bigger things. I believe I’m worth a raise opposite a 4th seat opener. At IMPs I would just bid the game over 2 H.
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: AK7652 762 AQ 84
I do not consider 2H to be forcing. Raise to game anyway.
Should you duck Kx?
I remember the article. As I recall Rubens said declarer should always play for the doubleton ten. I’m going to have to dig that year out of storage to re-read it. My memory is not what it used to be.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: A6 AQ T75 JT8654
Assume you mean 2Dx.
But is bridge Fun?
It’s fun for me. Would not play otherwise. And humbling.
Jim Munday's lead problem: --- QT7653 KQ54 A52
Hope we beat this. Save has to be cheap.
Can you bid this slam?
A 2/1 in a 4 card, 9 high suit, is most unappetizing. One could treat the responding hand as a 3 card limit raise.
Ian Grant's lead problem: 3 A9 Q752 AJT653
I assume I was called in as a substitute after the auction.
Adjusted Master Points
I wonder how many ACBL members are aware that, at one time, you lost 1/2 your MP total each year. I believe this practice was discontinued during WWII.
