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.
What's My Range?
One reason to respond with 4-7 pts is to keep the bidding open in case opener got 19-21. However if your RHO bid you dont need to respond with 5-7 pts since you can pass and opener will have another chance to bid. At MP and NV it could make ...
ATB
Both 1S by west and a delayed 2S by east could go for 800 easily. KQxx , AJT8xx are not my idea of decent suits at unf vulnerability, at least if east open 2S direclty there is some preemptive effect, but the delayed 2S have little preemptive effect & increased risk. There ...
Roger Lee's bidding problem: AQJ872 AK74 AKJ ---
Its convenient but unfortunatly im dealt strong 6322 fairly frequently. But I agree that showing shortness is probably more useful than side suits.
Opening Precision 2C
We play 2C could be 5C+4M. What I recommend is... 2D= Multi INV (or GF with 5+M, M+M) ..............2H = I refuse a long invitation ..............2S = I super accept a H INV but refuse a INV ..............2NT Im min but i like both majors (D short) rest ...
Prealert? Nothing? Something else?
IMO the way it should be is that for 12+ or maybe 16+ boards it should be my duty to read opps CC. For less than 12 board they should disclose what is unusual (like strong club,4 card majors,canape in N-America), for stuff that doesnt need preparation and ...
Ben Kristensen's bidding problem: AK6 632 AJ7654 A
If you play cheapest bid is break after reverse you are also fine with 2H bid. 3D is just lol for me.
Ben Kristensen's bidding problem: AK6 632 AJ7654 A
These hand are super easy with my inversion method. 1D-1H () 1S-1NT (3 or 4, 5-10 deny 4,6,4) ?? 2C = relay to 2D To play 2D, (6D+4H non-rev, or 6D+3S solid ) or 5D+4H reverse 2D = 3?5? 3?6? minimum ...
Ugly Call
Like i said i was very skeptical too, but if you just look at hand pattern its probably convincing enough, note that your dislosing the hand that would have been dummy and you would have a trump lead most of the time anyway. (im ignoring pattern where opps have a ...
Ugly Call
" to open a Precision 2♦. This left North with an annoying choice, since anything he does could land in a 6-card fit" After 2D--2H--opener should correct to 2S with 4315. IIRC Rodwell came to this conclusion many years ago after a computer simulation. I was dubious of that but I ...
Prealert? Nothing? Something else?
Even without 1NT forcing it make sense, 1NT with 5H stop a 1S overcall, 1Nt with 5S got little preemptive effect.
