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.
Shortest Board Ever
I've ended a board after one bid when a multi-2 was used and the session was level 2. Same logic as the OP but one bid fewer.
The end of an ERa 25
This creates a situation where opponents not only can ask but must ask, lest they be left thinking that there's actually a strong hand there, rather than one that's merely defined as "strong" by a Blue Book which suggests that a minimum weak NT hand is strong, flying ...

I was in the same situation when I first started playing Precision. We'd have many alerts and everyone used to ask but, as time passed, people realised that they weren't learning anything much of relevance to them during the auction. We now are asked rather infrequently but we ...
Full Disclosure ?
I've done it on a nothing but cards in partner's suit, certainly white vs red.
Questions about 1N-2!s Range Ask
I have one partner I play it with, bearing in mind that we play a weak NT. For us, the bid shows 11 points balanced or a long minor. After 2, opener bids 2NT with a min and 3 with a max. Partner will then pass or correct ...
