about me

Basically a club player who gets to a nationals every other year. Very good slam bidder. Hideous Hog himself sent a postcard to my cat for helping me bid a grand slam which won that night by 1/2 of a match point!  Won 2 world wide bidding contests.  Greatest compliment was opponent Grant Baze tell partner Kyle Larsen, "He's playing the Hell out of this hand!"  I had only played 3 tricks.  This was an unforgettable score of 7 1/2 match points.

BW 2/1: Final Conclusions
I asked him the next day if Eddie Kantar had given him a refund on the book. He called me a jinx. I said I was kibitzing your partner and he did not make an error in bidding or play. There probably is no difference in the queen asking bids ...
BW 2/1: Final Conclusions
Sorry to disagree with RKC 1430. I once kibitzed the partner of a current Bermuda Bowl winner when he was passed his partner in the 1430 queen ask. Twice. So if a BB winner has problems it is probably wrong for me. I hope Larry you can accept my decision ...

This is expected from a Latin player ;-)
Very well done!
Philly Slam Poll 2 of 3: ATB missed 6!D
A difficult auction. Ace asking gets you 2 keys cards. Ace of Clubs and King of Diamonds is a very possible answer. I guess you just have to bid 5 Diamonds rather than 4 Diamonds and partner will know you have extra length and need his AK of Diamonds. So ...
Philly Slam Poll 1 of 3: ATB missed 6!S
The auction should start 2C -2S. I find bidding 5+card major suits when partner opens 2C works well. We never miss a game and we get to lots of making slams. This hand is almost a full opener opposite 2C and a slam try should be normal. When a ...
Philly Slam Poll 2 of 3: ATB missed 6!D
The 2H bid is explained as artificial with no further explanation. Does it show reverse values without a genuine heart suit? Forgive my ignorance.
Thanks for the clarification. I am very glad you enjoyed the game both days. I think she did her best. Very good you asked her to play in a top event!
Partnership trust arises. Why cannot North have AJT or AQJ or AQT of Spades ON this auction? North has denied Hearts and he shows five Diamonds. South cannot mind read. North lied, and lied again. We will get the same poor score. The real mystery is how North thought he ...
David Birds Inappropriate Comment
Translating the Queen's English to American English can be difficult. That is why Yorkshire issues passports. The Irish are accustomed to stupid British comments historically. ;-) Happy St. Patrick's Day. We are just back from the party at the bar.
