about me

Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Assign the Blame/Credit
I know that this may be a partial hijack, but this would not have happened in at least one of my partnerships. We play "continuous" NT ranges. 1 of a suit followed by 1NT is 11-13, 1NT (5 card majors frequent) is 14-17, 2NT is 18-20, 2 followed by ...
Assign the Blame/Credit
Tom: Do you mean 3 or less rather than less than 3?
How do u rate the call
At equal nonvul, you are probably conceding at least 500 against a game and you may be conceding 1100 against a slam. If you don't get doubled, you may cause some problems for the other side by jamming the auction. But they have already exchanged a lot of information ...
A ruling conundrum
East is a passed hand, so everyone at the table knows that he doesn't have the values for a double followed by a bid. That is not the issue. East's bid is essentially a balancing action. The only issue is whether West's pause was a normal pause ...
Is an adjustment warranted?
I don't disagree with anything that Aviv wrote. I don't see how South can pass 3. If North wanted to reject the 2NT "invitation," he could have passed. 3 can't be a runout by North. (Query - what would 1NT - 2NT (natural and invitational) - 3 ...
Building a bidding system
What kind of bugs? Or is it an assortment?
The problem is bigger than the Stop Card
I agree that the opps have every right to ask the question. It is not for me to determine whether or not it is relevant on the hand. RHO could be considering doubling for the lead. We don't know what RHO had in mind. That said, the question does ...
Can Anybody Even Do It
You may be right, but it is impossible to say looking at these two hands. Can you provide the EW hands?
The problem is bigger than the Stop Card
This last point is one of my pet peeves. When playing online, so many players type in "WDP" or similar. Often the only thing their partner did was follow suit. But it is particularly annoying when they achieved a good result due to either a lucky lie of the cards ...
The problem is bigger than the Stop Card
First hand - you are right, but it is not your job to point these things out. It is the TD's job. Given the facts that you relate, the TD did a very bad job. He is correct that anyone may ask questions at their turn to call. But, as ...
