about me

Love bridge, but don't get to play enough...hope to change that in the near future.  Also play serious tennis, and some golf as well: waiting for the IOC to institute the Country Club Triathlon.

Otherwise, I am a senior partner at Gargoyle Asset Management.  Married to the beautiful Victoria, with 2 kids still living at home (see photo for one of them).  The others are grown up (or think they are!).

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: Qx Ax QJxx AK8xx
with our space-consuming RKC sequence, this is the only way partner could express interest in seven. Don't think I could have a much better hand, will just have to pay off to the unlikely club loser.
Jordan Kaye's bidding problem: T8 AJ T8xx AQ98x
Nothing special about this hand. No reason to think we have s double stopped, or that we're a lock for 9 tricks if we do, as s are unlikely to run. And 11 tricks in s seems a big stretch. This could easily be our last making contract given ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: Q754 AK3 QJ42 K8
I agree with Phil, though there's certainly no assurance partner holds a doubleton . However, my hand is very defensively orientated for s using in-and-out evaluation. Could be an easy +300 with no game our way.
Benjamin Bomber's bidding problem: KJ9x Axx AKQ8x T
HAVE to double first...sometimes partner actually has s. I'll risk bidding only 2 over 2, but cue bid over 3.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AJT9x xx Q9x Txx
is that to clue partner in on your void and slammish values? :-) Unless specifically agreed, I'd never play that as a transfer, assuming that's your intention
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AJT9x xx Q9x Txx
Yes, most of the expert world plays double as negative, but this is our agreement, so live with it. It was certainly gonna work well on this hand, protecting partner's potential tenace. Pass is crazy! Partner can't possibly be introducing a suit at the 4-level with the ...
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
Partner will usually overcall with a 5-card suit and enough strength for us to buy the contract, so IMO those shapes should be discounted. Sure, 3316 isn't LIKELY, but how about 3325? I hate the idea of getting to the 3-level unnecessarily, and what is your plan when ...
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Axxxxx AQJT9 --- K9
Would 4-minor by opener be a cue agreeing a particular suit? I assume that would show better than 3M. Anyway, still a guess here. Would partner bid 3 with KQx Kx Qxxx Qxxx? Maybe...great major-suit cards but poor otherwise. I'm sure he would with Qxxx Kx AKJx ...
Jim Olson's bidding problem: AQJ A QJT852 Q94
Brad, I'm pretty sure 3 shows a bigger hand than 3. Partner will expect another bid from you, as you've created a force. As with any negative double auction (unless you have a game force), you just have to choose a strain and decide how high ...
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
Passing is a virtual admission that you're never bidding in this situation. We have a reasonably good suit (partner will never play me for six), near-maximum strength, decent shape, perfect holding. Is YOUR partner gonna balance with Kxxx Ax Kx Jxxxx? I didn't think so. As for ...
