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.

What does 3 diamonds tell you?
Note that cue and bid as GF its one area of standard that is inefficient. In std 3C direct isnt forcing while 2D followed by 3 is forcign but for me its should be the opposite.
What does 3 diamonds tell you?
A hand that is thinking about 6 with shortness. Splinter when no fit is agree is our own near solid suit. 1M--1NT--4m (1S-1NT-4H need to be discussed)
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Its technically the guy who has given a false information (or failure to alert) that need to call the director. "his own explanation was erroneous or incomplete" so it should go 2... ---alert ---what does 2 mean ? ---Hes showing a sound opening hand and asking me to precise ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
I guess players who are prone to forget the 3D bergen raise are unlikely to understand why you should rarely do a mixed/preemptive raise with 4333 shapes. Hopefully they will learn than more lesson after this board.
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Also since many players don't understand UI well enough you usually get at least an ave+ in the end.
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
They changed the laws once again, anyway this is one area where the laws used to make little to no sense at all when your not behind screens. Once a player will make a bid that will automatically wake up his partner and show that the partnership is in a ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Not only that but if 3NT is "obviously" a cuebid than south need to alert 3Nt (after 2008 you need to tell your agreement even if it wake up partner and you know that partner doesnt have his bid) and North realizing his mistake need to call the director immediatly ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 9853 96 T4 QT872
4 If partner had good he jump in by bidding what he think we can make by overbidding half a trick. No preempt in 4th seat VUL when he can pass 1D. However with not so great spades he will start with a X so the fact ...
Paul Maris's bidding problem: --- AJT532 KT8 JT87
4NT-5m-5H route.
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Since few players will make a mixed raise with 3433 south hand is as notrump-ish as it can be so pass is clearly LA. 3NT natural facing a mixed raise should be (2533) close to 2Nt opening with poor trumps. AK--Txxxx-AKx-AJT
