about me

Electrical engineer (power system protection)

Used to play chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of classical music, pop music agreeing with my age, detective stories, thrillers, 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. Now and then still do it.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Tracy Brines's bidding problem: A75 AJ62 AKQ A93
Even x,x,xxxxx,xxxxxx is not hopeless for 12 tricks although I (or rather, partner) must apologize to opps if it makes.
Kevin Bathurst's bidding problem: J982 A43 7 98642
Partner has a very strong hand with a long diamond suit, probably with side hearts. I have stopper in spades and significant extras, so 3NT. If they can't cash 5 blacks we are making.
Oren Kriegel's lead problem: KQ7 QJ85 T8 Q976
I don't lead the 7 but can I not abstain by pressing the Abstain button?
Veljko Vujcic's bidding problem: KQJx JT98 Kx xxx
Double is the best way to the impossible, trying to recover from that awful 1. If partner takes it out I'll have to go to 3 and he will probably deduce that I have found my 13th card and it was an ace.
What is "Standard" UDCA?
Yes, they differ if you want to make 3 different signals in one suit. Very useful and easy to follow.
What is "Standard" UDCA?
You mean partner led the opponents' suit in which I have at least 4 cards?
What is "Standard" UDCA?
Smith echo is in the opponents' suit. For the other two, when you have already played 3 cards in a suit do you think there is still something to signal? Now what is 'or...'?
What is "Standard" UDCA?
If it starts in round 3, what happened in round 2?
Desambiguating a weak no trump situation
I've always thought transfer responses were played primarily for easy distinction between 3 and 4 card support.
What is "Standard" UDCA?
Are (2) and (3) not the same?
