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.

How do you rule ?
The original double of 1 spade is explained as penalty and shows spades. It is not a takeout double. East's hand does not fit the alerted explanation.
How do you rule ?
So BOTH sides misbid but only one side gets a director call because they overbid. How did WE solve their problem? Or so inform the opponents and the director. West figured out his partner made the wrong double. How so? NS somehow found they had a spade fit after the ...
Style Poll
RR, thanks for the comment. I hope I can still learn.
Style Poll
In Auction 1, partner bid freely so I invite. In Auction 2 partner values his hand to 10-12- HCP and at least 4 spades. The takeout double of hearts emphasizes spades as a place to play, unless a NT rebid showing better than a 1NT overcall. These are my thoughts ...
Club policy legal?
@Steve, you probably played against Grant much more than I did. I am following what he wrote and my experience with him as an opponent.
Master Points for Foreign Players
A good try at seeding fairly. Thanks for the effort. And thanks again for your kind comment in Atlanta.
Club policy legal?
Grant Baze wrote he never tries anything against weak opponents. He felt he was getting 70% of the matchpoints and the lesser players would likely err often enough. Just bidding what was on the convention card was sufficient. He never minded when the lesser opponent played well and was the ...
The Pen or the Pistol
Keeping the goal of 12 tricks in mind is not always easy. Running the club 10 and retaining the ace of diamonds in dummy works very well when the ten loses. When it wins just pitch a spade on the ace of clubs and maybe the diamonds are a classic ...
Common Game - security of hand record files and boards made
Hasn't anyone written software to reveal the number and ID of anyone who accesses files? I mean business email can tell managers who opened and read a sent email without need of replies.
What are your pet peeves?
I have found slow play is a tactic and can be turned on or off like a light switch. Did a player memo on one of Florida's better players on this. Hope he learned from it.
