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.

NABC+ Appeal Csae 2
I have two problems with this appeal: 1. I assume, from the lack of an alert, that the redouble "showed cards." And I understand the double of 2 showed spades, as the 2 bid was artificial. What can the double of 3 be other than penalties? How ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
@Paul. I prefer the term "intergalactic" to "alien." Alien is so perjorative.
Sucks to be me
"I am not, nor have I ever been, an attorney or any other member of the legal profession." David, trust me. It is not that terrible. There are worse things. For example, you could be my Congressman. He has a particular distinction at the moment which I cannot get into ...

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
One may argue that the Laws require a player to claim when there is no doubt as to the number of tricks to which the declarer is entitled. Law 74B(4) states that "As a matter of courtesy a player should refrain from ... prolonging play unnecessarily (as in playing on ...

When you play xyz
In the version of XYZ that I play (which I thought was "standard" but I am finding out otherwise): a. 1m-1-1NT-2 is natural, game forcing, and distributional. With 4-4 in the majors and invitational values, responder would have bid 2. b. 1x-1y-1z (where z can be hearts ...
When you play xyz
EDIT: 1-1-1-1: Natural and forcing one round. There is no need for 4th suit forcing playing XYZ, so that is not a possible explanation. 1-1-1-2: Natural and game forcing. More distributional than bidding 2 (artificial game force) followed by hearts.
Can East and West bid better?
"East (sic) double is reasonable." That is an understatement. I suspect that 101 out of 100 players would double with the East hand (one of them doubles twice (redouble?)).
ATP- Match Points
Whoever is in passout seat has a 100% clear action. I just can't tell who it is from the presentation. If it is the 4414 hand, double. If it is the AKxxxx of spades hand, 3. I blame the hand in passout seat 200%. EDIT: From later posts ...
