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).

Country
United States of America

Daniel Lyder's bidding problem: ATx AJ7 AKQxx Ax
Chuck, please. "Nobody" plays that 1 can be THAT strong Which is not to suggest that I think bidding 2 here is bad
Do YOU play any of the "Worst Conventions?"
IMO the only real gain of Kokish (and it's a big one) is the ability to distinguish Opener's NT ranges without going past 2NT. When 2 is a game force, Opener (should) rebid 2NT with all balanced hands, so Kokish is no longer necessary.
The Worst Convention Ever
I would vote for Fishbein, but refuse to believe people actually play it
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: x --- AKxxxx KTxxxx
I elected to raise at the table, which was not a success when partner tabled: Qxx AQxxx Qxx xx
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: x --- AKxxxx KTxxxx
Good question! Yes, and yes
Kevin Bathurst's lead problem: T43 7642 AQ852 3
Well...if you want to look at it that way, that's fine too :)
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: QJ84 K7 J43 Q976
With Kxx the default play is the encouraging spot card, not the King. I don't see why the position you're describing should be different...
Passout-seat double by opening preemptor
The second option is intended to mean that
Name this Squeeze
Ian just won Comedy
Rohit Gupta's lead problem: 8 K2 QJT832 9764
Competing would have occurred to me, but not double
