about me

Back after a seven-month boycott of the ACBL. Not playing much right now, but am on BW just about every day.

Other interests include pickleball, golf, and generally enjoying myself. I try not to take things too seriously, especially at a bridge table.



United States of America

David Caprera's bidding problem: Kx Qxx Txx AKJTx
While nothing appeals one bid I don't make is 2NT, because if 3NT is right partner should play it not me. I can see 2 working out but I have a mild preference for 3.

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: A5 J KJT954 T843
Transfer advances, anyone? :) If I can't bid 2 naturally, I Pass and hate it. Who knows, maybe partner can ruff a couple hearts.
Allen Kahn's bidding problem: AK6 A6 AKJ9762 3
If I have discussed methods (like, 'partner is not allowed to go bananas jump-raising or splintering after my reverse'), then I don't mind 1 preferring that to 2 which I don't mind either.
Coast Conduct
'Hadn't actually noticed'... yet you do say there was a mild hesitation. That seems a wee bit contradictory. I understand your opponents' angst, but table courtesy IMO dictates to simply call the director, let him or her sort it out, and leave the editorializing out of it. The comments ...
Faulty BBO
It's funny when I'm playing a hand and BBO asks me: "Are you still there?" The pace of play seems a bit spotty, but it's not an inconvenience.
Bill March's bidding problem: KQT87 T84 --- 95432
You seem lots more sure about heart shortness with partner than I am.
Bill March's bidding problem: J42 Q AJT65 AKQ6
This is weird; I bid a cowardly 2 when on the other side of the table, but I'm all gung-ho here... Maybe I'm having a hard time being objective.
Bill March's bidding problem: KQT87 T84 --- 95432
I want to bid 3 but IMO the three dead hearts are a big negative.
Mikael Rimstedt's lead problem: AJ863 KJ98 --- Q842
Because I'm old-fashioned. I thought you knew that :)
