about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

Anant Rathi's bidding problem: JT7xx K97x Jx 9x
Interesting. I think there's a pretty good reason to do this playing strong notrumps as well. The more opener bids 2, the more the strlng hand declares
Survey Says!
Good point. The cuebid doesn't deny support, but advancer's rebid should be made under the assumption there is no fit yet.

And, perhaps more importantly, you already have several strong spade raises: 3, 4, 4 (4?). So no need for another one
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: KJ65 KT54 T6 Q93
I want to get to slam opposite the likes of Qxx AQxx - AKJxxx, but in clubs. That strain is more likely to survive a bad heart break, and also with RHO on lead the risk of an immediate spade ruff is slightly diminished. But I'm not bidding 6 ...
Defend this Partscore
Beautiful article Oren. I got it just as wrong as W did at the table. A couple of typos though: Pg 1: T2 is won by the Q, not 9 Pg 4: "but he would not have needed to not have needed it to"
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: T A98xxx AQx K9x
David with 3 spades (and these hearts), you definitely would have raised last round, as 1 showed 5+
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: KT87654 A872 A5 ---
You wouldn't be surprised if West bids 6...over your double?
Arend Bayer's lead problem: J86 AJT AT75 J53
And the sky is blue?
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: --- xxx KQ9xxx KTxx
It's really strange to have a void in this position. I suspect partner has spade length, which suggests a very strong balanced hand. Therefore I highly doubt 3 will end the auction, and I'll probably bid 4 next
Capitalize Convention and Treatment Names?
What Daniel Lieb said! Stayman, Blackwood, and Flannery are obvious examples of proper nouns. Basically any named convention's name is a proper noun and should be capitalized (regardless of how it got that name). Consider "2-Way New Minor Forcing" vs "checkback". The former is the name of a convention ...
