about me

Professional anti-money laundering investigator, amateur bridge nut living in the Portland, OR metropolitan area.  I don't play as much as I would like to, and that probably isn't going to change soon.  I am married to a wonderfully supportive non-bridge player, and now have a little boy on the way, but I hope to remain active in playing bridge while I balance my new family life.

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making the round of 16 in the 2013 Spingolds with Chris Wiegand, Sam Punch, and Stephen Peterkin - the first time I had entered the event. Now up there: Getting my top 4 matchpoint finishes with 3 different partners at nationals in 2016 at Reno, including placing in the Platinum pairs.
Bridge Accomplishments
5 top 10 national finishes, all in the past 6 years.
Regular Bridge Partners
Chris Wiegand and Jeff Ford
Favorite Tournaments
any NABC, all GNT competitions, Portland and Seaside regionals
Favorite Conventions
Stayman and follow-ups derived from it. I played 15 years of home bridge with my parents without knowing stayman, so I really appreciate how wonderful it is.

Ethan - it comes down to the meaning of 3 in their Jacoby structure. If it shows significant extra values without shortness, then maybe W has told his story. We are missing that piece of information as far as I know.

Sathya, that's fairly easy. Partner's 4 bid says nothing about hearts initially, it indicates a club control. When followed by 5 over a sign off, it indicates heart and club controls (since we would have bid 5 immediately without a heart control and a hand ...
UI in club games?
If N was catering to UI, he might have doubled. 4 looks like it is normal enough.

Sathya - its harder now, you still have considerable extras and partner has moved to slam. I don't think what you are saying is at all true. Edit: This was not given enough thought in context of whatever 3 meant in the Jacoby auction.
Yet another Jacoby 2nt ATB
I mean apparently every cue in this partnership is a courtesy cue, neither promising slam interest or denying it. In that context, W has extras. Not sure if he does in the context of whatever Jacoby variant you are playing, in which case he needs to sign off, you are ...

Sathya - Opener should not queue with his crap over a non-serious 3N in my opinion. On the other hand, with the control rich hand you give him, he is worth a queue.
Yet another Jacoby 2nt ATB
Methods, strictly methods. non-serious would take care of the majority of the problem
How would you rule?
John - are they entitled to the AI of the explanation given at the table as well as their actual agreement?
