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.

Bidding Question: NMF
5 spades, less than four hearts, invitational. Opener might choose to play in the 5-2. 2NT by opener would be to play. What’s the difference between 2S and 2NT here? More shape perhaps, or less notrumpy values

Worst trump suit making slam
My not very remarkable best is AK9x opposite Jxx for no losers in 6H. Got me a NAP qualifier so that was nice.
Jump support after reverse
Your next opportunity to bid after raising to a forcing 3D is not going to be cheaper than 4D anyway; may as well at least have some distinction between 3D-4D and 4D directly.
Jump support after reverse
Me too, but I know that many (most) don’t; this is mostly a bigger problem for them.
Jump support after reverse
I’d rather have a purer hand than either of the last three, but stronger than the first. Maybe Axxx x QJTxxx xx?
Can we go back to talking about bridge in stead of corona?
The best and safest procedures for interacting with bridge players are the same as the procedures for interacting with everyone else in the world. It’s like asking for a restaurant review for some place nobody else cares about because bridge players eat food.
An Amusing Matchpoint Result from Monaco
Hats off to the pair that managed to take FIVE tricks in 2Sx.
ACBL Spring NABC is Canceled
327. (Hey, I can’t lose my money betting on basketball games, I need my fix!) A sad but very prudent decision. Cynically, I too would have pushed the button to send that announcement as my final act before leaving for the weekend, rather than taking a bunch of angry ...
