about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live on Cape Cod and am on the boards of EMBA (Unit 108), District 25, and New England Youth Bridge (

Does 1D-1H-1S-1N-2H show any extra values
I added the A to the OP for you.
1M-2x; 2M
Wouldn't be the first time I've been accused of an overbid.
1M-2x; 2M
I guess my other question is, if you have one of these agreements, how surprised would you be to see someone playing the other? Again, I'm talking about B- and C-level club players. I know I have a lot of students who expect 6+ from a 2M rebid and ...
1!s vs 2!s after Neg X
