about me

'Advanced' Intermediate level of skill.  I wish I had more time to play outside of BBO, but having a young child limits the number of tournaments and club games you can play.  

I'm always interested in learning as much as I can to become a better player.  I like playing against experienced players and playing in 'open' events instead of I/N for the higher quality of play.

Country
United States of America

Open DC Discussion Thread

Open DC Discussion Thread

A Simple Question
I did not because they did it as 3rd hand immediately after their partner played the opening lead. In that case it would have made any difference treating it like a major penalty card
A Simple Question
I played in the Thursday night side game and on multiple occasions the 3rd hand already played their card before dummy came down at trick 1. It was kind of annoying.
Systems on over 2NT overcall
Thanks - I appreciate all the comments
David Scharfbillig's bidding problem: AK9 Q87 KQJT7 AT
I started with 4 and we eventually found our way to 6NT (5-5-5-6NT were the follow-on bids). It can make but you have to figure out to play low to the 10 on the first club since they split 6-0 (partner has KQxxx in the suit ...

I did bid 4 thinking partner would interpret it as a strong bid with and was curious what folks here thought. Just for the rest of the story he bid 4 holding KQJxx QT xxx AKx and we were cold for 7 in 3 suits
