Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing against a pro-client pair in a team game in 1995, pro on my left. On the previous hand my partner made a light 3NT, and this time I have bid 3NT even more aggressively. The client leads, and as I put down dummy I say "I know this isn't much but you played the last one so well", and the pro whispers (disapproving of his partner's lead again) "You sure picked your mark".
Bridge Accomplishments
Won Chicago Invitational Pairs (1996) prior to Becoming a Life Master; 2nd in 5K mini-Spingold in 2006; a number of overall finishes in NABC+ events; made it to second day of Reisinger in 2012
Favorite Conventions
Transfer advances, transfer rebids, etc.
ACBL Ranking
Gold Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: AJ82 Q K9842 AQ4
You need better diamonds for that. KJ1096 perhaps. Otherwise you are quite possibly just making it much easier for them to double you for penalties on a hand where you know you might be down many hundreds against a partscore.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Almost as easy as it is to spread false rumors....
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
3. I think pretty much everyone advocating 1 who talked about a rebid has said that.
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
Possibly a better idea would be to dissolve the bridge partnership for the sake of keeping the marriage?
Your call
Of course but you aren't allowed to act on that at the table. If only the UI tells you they didn't have a misunderstanding, then you may have to bid as though they did have one.
Not Losing Money on NABCs
How many of them no longer participate as a result?
Not Losing Money on NABCs
I don't see why it wouldn't apply to all open NABC+ events...so not the 5K or 10K, but definitely the Open Swiss, Open Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Mixed Teams, Senior and Women's events, etc.
Not Losing Money on NABCs
Do you mean that last part, or are you a customer of the airlines?
Not Losing Money on NABCs
Tough to do that if you don't know how many days you'll keep winning (assuming you are just there for one event).
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 4 5 J854 AKQJ864
One reason we preempt is so that partner can swing the ax....
