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.

Christopher Moh's bidding problem: 93 KQT954 KQ9 AQ
I approve of everything we did until now, and if partner is listening, we have no reason to do more.
Did the Director get it right?
I’d give a hard no on the PP — all players are responsible for ensuring that the boards are shuffled, right? And I’d guess that maybe 10-20% of players would recognize a hand being recycled in this way. But yes, no way you can let it be replayed once ...
Tom Edwards's bidding problem: T8 KJ9543 AT864 ---
I’m not thrilled with where 3D will get us but it’s probably not any dumber than 2NT.
Going....Going....Gone!
I don’t mean to be rude, but: Your premise is that masterpoint integrity would be higher if we divided four table games into how many strata again? Eight might work even better...
Transfer Lebensohl!?
3H would be a good hand with probably 5 spades (because of Texas being available), letting opener choose between 4S and 3NT. 3S would be classically the “help!” bid, with game values but no spade suit or heart help. Here it should be asking opener to double check what their ...
Benny Abramov's bidding problem: T943 --- AJT96 KJT2
Hope they’ve missed game...
game vs slam flip psychology
I'm fairly sure that in your view the "expected" psychological play would be that the "bird in hand" of the lower scoring contract would be preferred, as the pain of loss is generally worse than the joy of gain, given equal values of each. What you're measuring is ...
Opening 10 HCP 6m331 hands playing Matchpoints
Playing sound preempts I think I’d open the club hand 1C and the diamond hand 2D. I know that seems a bit daft but it makes sense in my head.
Trevor Morris's bidding problem: AQJxx KQJ xx Kxx
It’s a lot easier to get from 1S to notrump than it is to get from 1NT to spades.
Toby Curtis's bidding problem: AK83 J72 AT AJ43
What are the doublers planning to do after 2D by partner?
