about me

McGill Bridge Club President.

I like all games with imperfect information.

This includes Poker, Mahjong, many other obscure card games, and of course bridge.

I might lose interest in bridge at any date. But until now bridge is the game that I would like to invest my time in.


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.

Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: x AJTxx KT97xx K
I read from Marty Bergen's articles from ACBL bulletin where he mentioned about how to open with 6m+5M. You will open 1m if: 1) you have 6 and 5 or 2) your minor suit is much better than your major suit. or 3) you have reverse ...
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: K KQJ8xxx x QTxx
This should be a forcing pass scenario: Over forcing pass scenarios I play: X = medium interest in penalty pass = strong interest in penalty or I dont have an obvious bid direct bid = I have an obvious bid Here your are solid I would say a 3 bid almost ...
Any way to a grand?
1NT - 2 - 2 - 3 (Shows 5+, 4+, slam interest)- 3NT (denies 3, 4 and 5, at this point responder knows that opener has exactly 3 card in ) - 4 (KC in D) - 4 (3/0) - 5 (Side K?) - 5 ...
How to get to slam on these cards ?
2-2(GF)-3-3(natural 4-5card, could have 4 card in major)-3NT-4(bypassing 3NT shows extras/slam interest, willing to play 5, key card asking)-4NT(2 with Q)-6(shows that the 3 was only 4 cards, if responder had 5 ...
