about me

Grew up and learned bridge in Hong Kong during 12th grade (2008) because only school bridge club members are allowed to bring playing cards to school. Brieftly after that I'm off from bridge for 5 years and on for bridge for another 5 years. 

Love bidding theories, strategies and systems. However, I was convinced that I should gitgud in bridge before thinking about creating a system/convention. So currently I am still trying to gitgud.

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
When I first learned bridge when I was in high school, me and 3 other newbies joined the interschool bridge tournament, along with another team from our school which was much more experienced. The tournament consisted of a swiss round, then the top teams from swiss round go into double elimination. During the swiss round my partner bid 4S instead of 4D because somehow he thinks his diamonds are spades. We did not get doubled, contract goes down 3, we got a positive IMP. And at the end we barely get through the swiss round because of that game. Somehow the experienced team did not even get through, this gave me great confidence. "Maybe I am talented in this game." I thought. Then we proceeded to lose 2 games in a row in the double elimination round. Game Over.

Precision help wanted 1
I totally agree with what you said. But I can guess the reasoning behind 3 instead of 2NT. Probably 2NT would be scrambling lebensohl and E worries that W would bid 3. Therefore he chose to bid 3 which in scrambling lebensohl does not promise/deny values ...
Upright citizen
Leading a without cashing 2 tricks in would not be on my radar. From bidding it makes sense that declarer have 4 sometimes 5, which means that you can't prevent ruffs. Also there is a good chance declarer have KQx in and good trumps ...
For Those Who Play Good/Bad 2NT
Is double penalty then?
Warning: Viewer Discretion
If I feel like opening with E's hand my bid is 1.
Ruling question regarding an unalerted jump cuebid
Well I'm not trying to appeal for my opponents because the match is already over and the result is set, and there were no appeal attempt made by opps. Yes I missed out the part that this hand was played in C. But as I mentioned, the purpose of ...
