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."

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.

A "TYP" Bid
Last train, show control in
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
Strongly agree that many strong hand can pass and bid later but its not the case for comp hand so bidding directly with comp hand got to be more important especially if your NV. However since you have 2S and 2NT both direct and delayed why not use 2S for ...
The nature of bridge probabilities 2
I understand that there is many ways to draw a chord, however my guess is methods that use points from the circle or the center of the circle or degrees will all give the same results while methods that start by creating a new object created by random points irrelevant ...
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
IMO the frequency is not that relevant, when overcaller got a sound overcall the bidding will mostly come back to him at 2S anyway. When hes got a competitive hand and responder got a 2/1 responder rebid will sometimes block him to bid 3m.
Unsafe Safety Play
Agree you really need east help you to get the ruff for your 10th trick, if he return clubs, you can unblock the club but its still not enough.
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
Initially my view was that if you have a 5 card 3-level overcall (17 pts but a 3235) you can simply pass and bid, its highly likely that the bidding will come back to you at 2S since opener cannot bid 3S on a wide range of hand. If they ...
The nature of bridge probabilities 2
Solution 2 would be right for a puzzle like, you have an infinite line and drop same circle in a even distribution fashion. When a circle is touching the line on 2 points creating a chord how often the chord created is longer than the radius.
The nature of bridge probabilities 2
For the circle problem im pretty sure solution one is right if the points are evenly distributed on the circle. Solution 2 is simply wrong, you cannot draw the line before positionning the points, if you start with a line that doesnt have an ending and turn it so its ...
Play this slam.
North should bid 5D not 5C. When you bid 5C you are simply showing that is not the worse suit of the 3 remaining suits. You may have a 4243,4423,4162,4612 & overcaller will only correct with both reds. In short 5C say my club are longer or ...
Steve Willner's bidding problem: AK742 KQ5 AK4 75
I agree that KQTx is probably a trap pass but make it KQxx instead and the odds is for 2NT or 2D rather than 2S or pass. many 8-9 count are negative doubles even if they dont have 4H. IMO its safer to make a flawed neg X than passing ...
