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.
How do you rule ?
South got UI because north called the director. For my partnerships bidding 2S after we denied 4M tend to show 31?? type of hands where we dont want to risk a dsip/takeout double. So 2S is indeed natural but it show 3 cards. South does have a hand where ...
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: KT Jxx A9xx 9xxx
opener hand was AQJxx A xx Axxxx game make even if clubs are 3-1 and trumps are 4-1, you just need to be careful and play clubs instead of trumps and discard rather than ruff if they try to tap you in hearts. Opener tought that responder was 2 ...
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: KT Jxx A9xx 9xxx
1Nt isnt forcing, if opener bid 2C on a 3carder its because hes going to be 15+ 6??3 and he wont pass 3C anyway.
Saturday's common game.
K is onside but Q is offside but show up double squeeze = 20% Ax 8 --- x KJx --- x ---
Saturday's common game.
If we assume are 5-1 and that east got JT than we have these odds. both onside 30% only Q onside =26% Q onside but 4-3, 3% west that are Kxx/Kx = 25%
Saturday's common game.
You already loss a so you cannot afford to lose a to get a trick. Because of the 1st trick east is likely longer in . EAst have the K is more likely than west having Kx/Kxx in
3 parter
I simply do exactly as a play of the hand problems from an old book where the contract is ridiculous, so I know I would never be in this contract but it doesnt stop me to do my best to find the best line.
3 parter
Passing and X is fine, most of the time the bidding will comeback in 2. I think a delayed 3M got to show 4+long club and X of 3H show the same but stronger. I prefer to simply bid X or at least bid 3S rather than ...
Wednesday's common game
If we decide to play ace and rely on finesse we wont be able to take double finesse so its not as clear as i tought. A, low to K, finesse, to A repeat club finesse play a 3rd club and hope for ...
Wednesday's common game
All thing being equal, for ex Kxx(x) & Kxx(x) I think west would prefer to lead a instead of a . Also because west didnt lead a D East is marked with a D honnor so we can handle with only one ruff. So IMO west underleading ...
