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.

0/3 Ambiguity
does 3 show extra or Force to game?
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A94 Qx KQT9542 A
3 denying Hx or xxx in is what I play over 2NT. Therefore I would just keycard and if my p isn't Aceless and go 6. if p has 1 Ace he has the A But I think some form of Ace or KC asking with ...
Rate North's bidding
Richard R. If you agree to open at 3rd seat with 10 count, then it's as often you have 10-bad12 as good12 to 14. Not to mention some people agree to open some 8 count these days. So yes, partner is assumed to be weak and should bid over ...
Rate North's bidding
Unpopular opinion: I would have done the exact same thing as N did. 1NT for me shows a maximum hand (10-11HCP), good stops and tolerance, which I'm surprised that the majority here thinks 1NT is an underbid. Opener with actual sound opening values can always X or ...
Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: T73 AKT2 --- AKQT42
What does 3 show?
Table feel vs Cheating
For board statistics, I meant all evidences related to the board such as video record of the play if available. Does that make a difference for your answer?
Forcing or Not?
Not sure about precision 1 opening, but in standard where 2 over 2 direct is 1RF, you have to X then bid to show a weaker hand with good . Therefore, it is easy for S to have a competitive hand and good in this ...
What do you make of this?
Depends on the runout method. They can totally play redouble by opener shows a 5 card suit and bidding shows the lowest suit of a 4-4-3-2, and the auction makes complete sense. (Though W could prob bid 2 if this is the agreement which I can't explain)
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AKT32 --- KT874 765
If this is imps I wouldn't worry too much because in vul we would play forcing pass and pull to 5 and find 6. Missing NV slam is less painful in imps. Not sure about MP
Winston Chang's bidding problem: QT6543 AK43 T3 J
Would have Xed over 3
