about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six. I played casually for the next 20+ years then joined the ACBL in my late 20s and have slowly but progressively grown more serious about bridge. Now in my mid 60s, I'm more enthusiastic than ever and still working to improve my game.

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: JT5 KQ85 KQJ972 ---
I don't think we are in a force over 5.
Reviving the Recorder System
Robb - we don't need 100% perfect recording. I'm concerned that one player may be 4 or 5 times more likely to be reported than another for the same behavior. I'm not sure this is the case, but it seems possible and it seems like too much.
Reviving the Recorder System
I am skeptical about the Recorder system. It seems that reporting incidents may act like an unpopularity contest. Here are two events. Both happened some time ago and my memory is not completely accurate, but the basic idea is. 1. An opponent leads J. I have the Q! in ...

Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: KQJTxx 9x AK9 AQ
I don't like the agreement that partner pulls my penalty double with less than 6 hcp. Opener has 15+, I'm saying my hand is better. Partner probably averages 4 hcp. I would prefer to double less, but show stronger defense against 1Nt. But with most partners, I don ...
Your first involvement in Bridge -Survey 1
I think you should modify this to include people who learned bridge before they got to college.
John Cunningham's bidding problem: AQ KJ95 K52 KQT3
I would have bid 2Nt over 2, then left the decisions to partner.
What am I Asking
My meta-rule for undiscussed bids is that they should have the most natural meaning possible. For this bid, I think the natural meaning is "I'm inviting slam in Spades." If I'm wrong, partner will explain it to me after the hand.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: AQJ8 AKT85 K64 8
1-1, 1-1, 2 is the sequence to show this hand for most people who play the 1 relay you describe.
ACBL Masterpoint Insanity
The good players know who they are. The rest of us worry about master points.
