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 (

An Unusual Daily-Double Double from Lyon
Huge congratulations to Sartaj. Very proud of him and his book.
BB QF USA1 vs. BULGARIA Session 2
Fair enough! It's certainly better than 3 though.
BB QF USA2 vs. SWEDEN Round 1
Sorry, the hand diagrams we import from BBO don't include player names, and I'm too lazy to add them. As you figured out, the second diagram is Pepsi's table.
Forgive and forget?
What are the chances we get a breakdown of who voted for whom? (Ha!)
RR15 Board 5 Great Defense by Pepsi
Is the Q going to help? Partner won't be sure the 9 is the important card for him to hold, not the T. Seems like he'll need to play the Q and T. Maybe he has time to do that. If he can only play one card, maybe ...
BBR13: Italy vs. USA2
That's what happens when I have to publish before Eugene's awake!
BBR13: Italy vs. USA2
Whoops. Thanks. Fixed.
Bermuda Bowl RR3: MONACO vs. CHINA
The A on board 1 feels like a concession to me. There's no dummy entry for a second heart finesse, so you're playing for Kx onside. If that's the case ducking the spade and ruffing J works just fine.
Bermuda Bowl RR3: MONACO vs. CHINA
On board 2, was Martens going to pull 4? I like 3NT.
USA1-Monaco Board 6
I'm not sure how relevant the possibility of the A is. Having passed 4 and already shown up with QJxxx of spades, KQ of diamonds, and a heart void, could Bobby really hold the A?
