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.
Transfers after 1m-1M-2m?
I think its the opposite its better to have unclear INV and see opener response to them. 1C-1H 2C-?? here you have 6H+3C INV wich INV do you choose ? If you pick H inv opener may pass because hes short in H. If you choose a club in you ...
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: K6 975 J63 AJ964
In the balancing seat i think its normal to play a ELC style especially over a preempt. Assuming 3C showed values, 3D is 4H+6D or some 1363 with good but can be just slightly better than a minimum. Having no AKQ in D and only one stopper make ...
Multiple Promotions
after a lead vs east 2 contract north overtake will also show the jack since hes cannot have a singleton. However im wondering in cases where north could have AJ or stiff A what spot should he return ? I think I prefer low = singleton ...

2 can also go down with a trump promotion.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: AKQJ84 J4 74 J83
Agree it depend what is meant by weakish, if its a pair that do not play or may screw up lebensohl than 2S got my vote.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: AJTxxx AQx Tx Tx
Its a close call but I really want a lead vs 3NT. All too often my partner lead a club in spot like this.
Happy Endings
Agree no reason to bid 3NT with a prime hand and a club fit.
This doesn't happen in the textbooks.
To kick the ace of clubs you need partner with Qx and opener with only 4 cards so IMO a 1444 is the only shape. So if you want to have a very tiny chances to kill the you need to play low club not the K.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: AQ5 AT7 3 A98763
2C is a pitfall here, its ok to bid 2C with soft values like KQxxxx so that if partner pass 2C with a singleton we might not belong in 4S, here however our hand is good vs club shortness so bidding the more encouraging 2S is the way to go ...
delayed XX runout showing a 3-suiter alertable ?
Kit, what i meant is that if you psych 2C or if you sometimes bid 2 clubs on a wide range of fragment shape (4423, 5413,4333) I agree that its like 4 card major opening in 3rd seat and its part of the general bridge knowledge and the bid ...
