Forcing 1NT Passed???
Well, when you're whingeing, you're whingeing. On Thursday we had this auction. I opened 1. Next hand passed. My partner bid 1. Fourth hand held KQJxx xx AKQJxxx - and bid 2! WTF is that? If it's a strong jump overcall then it should have ...
Forcing 1NT Passed???
I have been astonished to see how bad the field is on BBO. Perhaps that's because, back in the sane world, I played the Open Game and all of the turkeys were over there out of shooting range. Now it would seem that we are all mixed up together ...
Using the "C" Word
"I do make a report to BBO every time" Oh I'm sure you do. I'm sure you do. One of the stranger things about the feminist obsession about finding misogynists under every bed and after every bid is that the biggest obsessives are men. Tell me, does it ...
Clearly they did deserve each other(same set)

I first look at point count. Then I apply various other considerations - position, vulnerability, ability to find a rebid, possession of the majors, quick tricks, etc, etc. LTC is not among these. I have no idea why anyone would use LTC to decide whether to open a hand. It's ...
Using the "C" Word
Oh shut up. I wish there were pimply 15 year olds in bridge. There aren't.
Defend this hand
I find this whole discussion to be just a little weird. My partner encouraged in clubs so I am going to play another. Furthermore, declarer apparently thinks that clubs are a danger to him. All good. Now we get the strange argument that my failure to switch to diamonds says ...
How Bad Is This Line of Play?
It would seem that my old brain has had a memory fart. We never played this. I had it mixed up with another hand from last Thursday. Apologies.
How Bad Is This Line of Play?
Well, it also works when the KQ are onside. My instincts say that it is the best line with a bad player on your right and a good one on your left. But I'm not trying to justify the line. I'm just telling you what she did.
