about me

Two years (as of 3/2017) into my return to bridge after decades of inactivity.  Had an excellent Nationals in KC, qualifying for the final day of the NAOP (I wasn't alowed to play since I played with Kay Joyce who filled in for my partner) and the final day of the Silodor (but they didn't notify me until after game time and they didn't advise me that I should hang around the room until nearly game time so we didn't play), and made the overalls of the Lebhar.

NICKELL Wins Vanderbilt
It should be noted that their team, during the entire event, only gave up 458 IMPs in 360 boards. That's just barely over 1.25 IMPs per board. In today's bridge, that's simply amazing. Even if you ignore the result against the Irish Juniors, they allowed 416 ...
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T92 AJ73 AQT98 7
Well, we can beat 5 but it takes a trump lead with partner withholding the Q, then I have to win the 2nd and under lead in diamonds so partner can now play the Q. That wasn't happening.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T92 AJ73 AQT98 7
Thanks all for your answers. Partner held AQJxxx xx Kxx Qx and the preemptor was 0=2=4=7, so 12 tricks were easy on any lead with the normal careful play in the suit, while, as you see, 5 was cold. Of course, one layout proves nothing.

Yep, Kay played very well and I had a great time playing with her. They literally paired us up and marched us to the table. Fortunately, we declared part scores on both boards in the first round, so by the time we got to the 2nd round we had part ...
Good Defense by Greco-Hampson
No, Lorne, it is E who ruffs the 3rd .
How do we get to the !@#$% NT game?
At matchpoints, or NV at IMPs, you have no real reason to want to be in 3NT. On a spade lead if you misguess the diamond, they clear spades and make at least 3 spades and one of each. And you're not home even of you guess the diamond ...

Bus service is also available. Take the 129 route, it drops you off at 10th and Main, about half a block from the (free) KC Streetcar which will drop you off at Union Station (about a 1/4 mile walk to the Westin. Bus fare is $1.50, and the ...
North American Pairs competitor list
Update. By the time I found out I was pre-eliminated from the NAOP, it was more expensive to switch my plane reservations than stay home two extra nights. So I went anyway, figuring that they would at least need a fill-in pair since no one else who played in our ...
Another UI problem?
Or one smart enough to not try to teach Gazzilli to clients.
Play or defend from trick 6: A Double-Dummy Exercise
Well, give him a call. The two of you are worthy successors to Geza Ottlik. I hope someday you guys publish all your Bridge World articles in a book!
