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.

1!D - P - 1!H - 4!S - ?
4- I prefer 5H direct to be slammish and a delayed 5H to be "competitive" mostly because its how we play it when its scrambling. 5- slightly prefer pass but its very close. Agree with the rest.
ATB playing 5m down when 3NT is much better
I dont like east 3H and dont like west 4. Depending on methods its possible than when west doesnt raise at r1 slam is unlikely so maybe east should mostly think best game not slam. If it goes 1D-2D (inv minors where responder deny a 4M) because you ...
1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
You need to alert because you can open 1D and rebid 1Nt with 4423 or even 4324.
Ovunc Yilmaz's bidding problem: xxx Ax KQx AKxxx
Pass lead trump. I don't like double but there is another bid I dislike is to make a responsive double with shortness at equal or favorable vul. If you make a dsip/responsible double hoping overcaller got a stopper or 4 you must be ready to play 3Sx ...
Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: K6432 A873 6 QJ9
I also prefer 3 but its close enough IMO.
Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: K6432 A873 6 QJ9
3 but if responder got an opening hand he should X not bid 2.
How would you rule?
Being able to play 4Hx when your simply 55 plus being able to avoid 4Hx when your have extra shape is simply too important.
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: Q7 K8 KQT98 9752
I would have bid 2 on r2 but now I bid 3
How would you rule?
"The difference is an action that is right 80+% of the time will always be taken by good players and so there may not be any logical alternatives as per the laws. That does not mean you have not benefited from the UI." Its not a precise way to see ...
How would you rule?
doesnt matter, if west can bid 4 isntead of doubling he could find pass instead of doubling.
