about me

Tried to follow "Mom's First Rule of Bridge" since I started learning this game.  ("No one cares if you are good or bad, don't be slow")

I walk the dogs a lot - just not in the bidding.  Do not get to the NABCs or Trials enough because life interferes with bridge.

Weak two?
I am so confused. Logged on. Saw Frances posted a problem. Those are always good. Saw her opponents bidding and thought "welcome to 21st Century Bidding". Then I saw this post by Alan. Time travel. Pretty sure this is a 3 opening these days. If it is a two-bid ...

How do you interpret 5!s?
Possibly the result of too many beer cards scored. Not certain that "preemptive" is the proper description. It seems partner is not inviting me along as he had other ways of asking me to dance. Normal preempts provide some sort of agreement of how to continue, based on style. This ...
Roland Wald R.I.P.
Roland always brought us good news. This is so sad.
Here is the deal. This WAS a raise to 2 back when opening bids were sounder. Goren probably bids 2, Roth definitely bids 2. If one adopts a modern style of opening the floor of the opening bid becomes lower, therefore the range between a minimum opening and a ...
Your rarest distribution
Two 11s came up. Once in a practice and another at a game I run. I actually dealt them both, because I do the shuffling to keep things moving along. I shuffle a lot because players often get a 7 or 8-bagger and think I set them up. So I ...
Lynn Deas R.I.P.
This is so sad. Lynn was always wonderful. My condolences to her family and to her good friends, like Valerie. So sorry.
Is this double T/O?
Kit was right, no accident :)
Changing Times
I abstained. (So maybe things have not changed).
