about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB, if any, for this missed slam
I think you can just about get there after a strong Nt by east, transfer, superwccept, non-serious 4C cue by west. Which might even be questionable. In the actual auction? Meh.
Bidding problems featuring freak hands
I don’t think I agree. While obviously there is rarely a good bidding solution to such hands, it can be useful in general terms to use the collected wisdom on similar hands in the future (not necessarily double voids of course, but unusual hands in general).
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: K83 QJT763 A 632
Yes, and I’m bidding 3S over 3H.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
The first part wasn’t even necessary really.
Foolish or Brilliant?
“Poor people are crazy, Jack. I’m eccentric.”
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I’m all for bashing, but given that the email you posted was sent after close of business Memphis time Friday evening, and it’s currently 10:30 AM Monday morning, cut them some slack in this one.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
Point 1 is of course correct. Point 2 is, well, yes, Britain is smaller than the US. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be a point in favor of never having an NABC within 1.5 Britains of parts of the US though.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
It’s also quite an interesting analogy when you realize that golf, which rotates three of its four majors, wasn’t used. Golf is actually an excellent similarity — there are preferred locations for the US Open (Pebble Beach), and British Open (with apologies to our people on that side of ...
Ruling, adjustment?
If east rebids 3S, clearly we adjust to 3NT plopped firmly on the table with a glare, making however many tricks. As for the actual ruling, it seems yet another example of bending over to protect the offending side.

Please don't tell my wife.
