about me

Something a lot of people seem to forget is that Bridge is meant to be fun.


Every hand an adventure, every bid a thrill!

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Rate North's bidding
I changed my abstention in light of this new information.
Rate North's bidding
I see now the reason for the "suspicious" option in the poll.
Rate North's bidding
We don't know the state of the match or, at least. North's feel for how well they were doing. That could have had a big influence on North's bidding and being happy to defend a part-score that might not be cold.
Club policy legal?
I've not played Dippy for years.
Club policy legal?
How about a novice psyching against a more-experienced novice? I got written up for that in my first six weeks of playing. Opponents had maybe three years more experience than I did.
Table feel vs Cheating
Table feel and cheating aren't even in the same ballpark. I recall a hand a short while back where it was clear from his demeanour that RHO had a big hand. I also knew that he didn't fare well in unclear situations, so I doubled his one-level opener ...
What do you call a 9-card suit?
I faced one where the opponents had an 8-card clubs suit. After much thought, and seeing that partner had some support, she plumped for 3NT while almost everyone else was in 5C or 6C failing. That gave us a bottom.
What do you call a 9-card suit?
A very similar situation to the one above, except that the player with the monster spades never even mentioned them. Amazing.
What are your pet peeves?
It doesn't happen often but there are times when I want a few more seconds to decide on my opening lead. Then, I'l record the contract while I'm still thinking.
Lead out of turn
The other day, partner was playing in 3NT. The lead out of turn became her only stop in hearts after which she could take her tricks.
