about me

Love all games, I really mean all of them, go,shogi,poker,french tarot, wargames, computer games etc

"I mean, Gus and I never see eye-to-eye on work stuff.For instance, he doesn't like being used as a human shield when we're being shot at.I happen to think it's a very noble way to meet one's maker, especially for a guy like him.Bottom line is we never let that difference of opinion interfere with anything."

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first time Ive really understood how complex the bidding phase can be, at that point it was clear to me that bridge was going to be a great game.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
Assuming that as west I have UI because of my partner table presence. I like to assume that we both are 100% sure that we know we play 2H as both majors because it just happenned the board before, so its logical that 3C is a hand that was somewhat ...
ATB for missing this slam
"Change North's hand slightly: KQJx Kxx Ax AKQx and some would regard it as "a clear error" not to lead a spade." The clear error if when my partner pass the X with a singleton 3 card support and a ace. Once you understand that partner will make ...
ATB for missing this slam
I would need more to open 3 but 2 look totally normal for a 2nd seat unf and its enough to reach and make 6.
ATB for missing this slam
"Is it so bad to miss a slam that others are making by misplaying?" for the 6H contract IMO its defense that erred by leading a singleton with a well placed Qx of trumps. But I agree that its resulting.
Road to the GNT Final Four R8 Q2
B19 I think going up with A and play low is better. If east got 3 (unlikely I admit) he might go up with the ace and play thinking your trying to sneak a trick. 4+1+1+3 =9. West could ...
David MacRae's bidding problem: KJ9x Q9xx x KJTx
I strongly believe that its better to play 4 as +M and 4 as both majors. If 4m is natural it got to show a great hand, you must have a hand so good that 5/6 will make often enough to compensate the case ...
Play or defend?
had a brain fart on that hand, i tough it was west that had the guard. In wich case on a H lead you duck and D communication is preserve but if they lead they break the squeeze
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
"In the real world, opponents sometimes fail to falsecard with 109x" your opponent only need to falsecard more than 33%. So if you feel you opps are good enough to falsecard enough both lines are equals (starting with J or starting low and change depending on west card). If they ...
Play or defend?
Im ok to play with H lead, its the lead that im not sure.
How do you play this bid?
Its not only for the 2 level, having a cheap way to differentiate between a shapely 5??6/4??6 vs 20 count 4(13)5 will simply make it easier for the 3 level also.
