about me

Former electrical engineer (power system protection). Now resigned from work.

Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of music, reading, various sports, games of logic.

Started to play bridge in 1974. Won my first major tournament in 1980.

More interested in bidding than in card play.

I used to be a regular commentator at BBO.

Liam Milne's bidding problem: 3 A65 A753 AKT76
2. I'd rather step on the brake later than try to convince my partner that I have 7 controls.
BBO shortcut
Thanks Barry. I followed your steps and it works OK.
Now that we are at Multi, what is this double?
Is your 3 bid here take-out of spades?
Péter Talyigás's bidding problem: Q K76 QJT85 K984
Pass. Classic penalty double situation. We are going to collect 500-800. Lead: Q. That said, I might have bid 1 at my first turn but I don't want to spoil the party.
Gábor Szőts's bidding problem: AKJT3 87 74 QT52
Thanks for the votes. I held this hand and I chose the majority vote of 4. The successful bid, however, would have been the double. Partner held: xx, K109x, AKQ, AKJx. You can see the whole hand here (I was pair no7): ...
What Does This Double Mean?
Optional: either you leave it in or I leave you out.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: KJ98542 --- 2 AKQ86
If they did not bid 5 and parner bid 5, would I have passed? If yes, I bid 5 now, if not, I bid 6. The situation hasn't changed. I'm bidding 6 anyway. If partner has A, fine. If not, they may lead ...
Sequel to "A simple, little survey".
I chose the first answer but I don't think I'll need 4 spades to penalize them, in fact I think 3 cards would be typical in this situation.
ATB - Just another missed slam
I might have bid 5 as North at my 1st turn but I would have certainly not passed 5 with the exceptional South hand. After all, North thought he'd make 5 facing wasted heart values.
T-Walsh: 1!C-1!S-2!D uncontested
We play 1 to show 4+ diamonds, and a raise to 2 is a normal raise, maybe on 3 cards. Our 1NT rebid may be slightly unbalanced with 5 clubs and our 2 rebid shows only 5. With stronger hands we either reverse in a major or ...
