about me

Rather good french player in his mid forties. Been loving this game for 30years now.  I have designed the spider-system with pard (xtruel on BBO), based on personal ideas, lots of simulations, ambra and nightmare-alike systems. We are now  fluent with the system. Have been codeveloping the "dealer" program in the 90's, which is now used in BBO for bidding practice (I'm a simulation geek). Working now on "deliberate practice", next goal is to enter the top30 teams in France midterm. Each bid/card we play goes into some postmortem now. BW will help. We use a software bugtracking system for that. I've also a very busy life outside of bridge, so managing bridge-time is crucial.

Xavier Truel's bidding problem: KQ7 T3 83 T87642
This is not IMP KO, but Imp-VP, 12 boards :)
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: AK65 Q6 AQ854 82
Hi Timo, this was also my approach. My partner asked me this question : so what do you bid now after 1 1 1 1NT ? And with AK65 Qx AQxxx Jx, seems even worse (2NT now ?). I thought 1 with that was a no-brainer, but I began ...
Score keeping should be disallowed in the semi finals/finals of all major national matchpoint type events
@John: yes tournament will have to print a separate sheet for every pair, but that's actually the case on our side of the rubicon (we get a specific pair-sheet, with name of oppos and so on...). No big deal.
Wil Alkemade's bidding problem: 97542 42 K7542 4
Couldn't find the 2.8 card in the bidding box. Hence I bid 3.
Score keeping should be disallowed in the semi finals/finals of all major national matchpoint type events
The main problem with keeping a scorecard opened to scrutiny is that it is statistically improving your OWN score if opps cheat. They will get hints to play at all tables... except yours. So much for providing fake scores to cheaters : you also will have to pay for that. That ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: K62 AQT4 965 AT6
It looks as if I've 13 cards, but my pard already knows that for sure.
Aviv Shahaf's bidding problem: AQT95 K54 5 AKJ9
93 more like this one and you will surpass Raymond Queneau. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercises_in_Style
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: 9 AKJ952 K965 KQ
I think the answer is in the question. If you cannot force partner with a natural heart bid, you have to resort to a non descriptive forcing bid (CUE 2). This is clearly non satisfactory, and I suggest you tweak your system.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: xxxx J KTxx Kxxx
5...mouah ha ha ha ha ha...
Juraj Kvocek's bidding problem: Q763 Q642 A2 T97
Too bad that we are not allowed to XX here to show a COG. Thanks for the problem though, something interesting to discuss with pard (4D as pure COG versus COG with extras)
