about me

A system geek, even played strong pass (Regres) when it was allowed.

Of course have my own relay-Precision, which is of course the best one in efficiency / memory load ratio Smile

Graduated as a mathematician, work as a software developer.

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making a small slam in a 5-4 fit after finding QJxx on the wrong side. And some succesful falsecards. I forget them easily, thus I write them on my homepage sometimes.

Favorite Tournaments
Pula Festival (Croatia, each September)
Favorite Conventions
bids showing or asking shortness

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Way to Recover
Right. We play relay precision. I just tried to express that (how to say it PC) this method may not be optimal.
Way to Recover
If I played this method holding this North hand I might have sorted a small spade into the "hearts" :-) Or perhaps a diamond, being red. The same thing as not splintering with stiff ace.
Ekren competitive
No big deal, just enter "Ekren convention" into google, if you have not heard about that.
Csaba Czimer's bidding problem: 9 95 AK982 AJ763
@Richard: Near guess, I admit he can easily have that. But how should he bid AQJTx, AKQJTxxx, --, -- ? (or a slightly weaker spade holding) He knows that you don't have the spade king. You know that he can ruff a spade and throw 3 of them on your AK + A ...
What is your line of play?
I entered the board into GIB. It played like this: high diamond (spade from dummy), a diamond ruffed high, SpK, SpA, Sp ruffed high. It needed either 3-3 spades or club king onside (and 3-3 or 4-2 trumps) = 57%. My play above (run the 10 etc) is about 63% plus ...
What is your line of play?
That's 68% * (35,5% + 48,4% * 3/4) = 49% See below for other calculations
What is your line of play?
Run the club 10. If they don't lead a trump then I'll have 2 spade, 2 diamonds, a club and 7 trump tricks on crossruff. I need 3-2 clubs, 5-4 or 6-3 diamonds and 4-2 or 3-3 spades for this, trumps does not matter. (~ 51% chance). If they ...
Forcing pass?
My rule for unclear situations: if our bidding can be based purely on distribution then pass is not forcing. I think this is the case here.
1m - P - 1!S - 2!H - 2NT?
We play it Good-bad: weak, but distributional hand willing to compete on level 3 (6+ after 1 opening, 6+ or 5-5 after 1 opening or perhaps GF) and normally denies 3-card . Playing this way direct 3-level suit bids show some extra but can ...
Opener's jump rebid of 3NT after a game forcing 2/1 response
I liked the idea at first sight, but there is a problem: 3N will be declared from the wrong side.
