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: AKQ5 JT 7 QJ9863

What happened?
Whenever I come across an article I find interesting I save it to my PC.
Italian Bidding
Being offended is the person's own decision. It is not obligatory or forced.
(1H) P (1S) P (2H) X = ?
The first is TO of their major. The rest are penalty.
minorwood - what are your rules if 4m is minorwood?
In my country this is almost standard (under the name "optional roman key-card"), only some play the first step as encouraging, others as discouraging. I belong in the latter group because that makes it possible to bail out in 4NT.
Péter Talyigás's bidding problem: 2 K62 K9432 AQ65
