about me

Electrical engineer (power system protection)

Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess, testing engines. 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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What hand type is 2!d?
The first example hand comes closest although I would not remove 1NT with that one.
What is 2!S?
With 8 sure tricks and the opponents content with 1 I would not be afraid of bidding 3.
What is 2!S?
3 is not obligatory with solid diamonds. You can bid 3 as well.
What is 2!S?
I don't debate the merits of the bid. I was asked what it means and came to my answer by way of elimination.
What is 2!S?
Only, having a couple of spades himself, that scenario can be excluded or at least extremely unlikely.
What is 2!S?
18-19 balanced, no spade stopper, no 4. Responder places contract. With the solid diamond hand I'd jump to 3. With a big 2-suiter I'd jump in my second suit.
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
If I only knew an effective rule of thumb! With an (5332) hand I usually bid on having a side doubleton and pass if I have a doubleton club.
Forcing Pass situation or not
I'd have bid 6 at my previous turn.
Can this sequence exist?
West has 3622 distribution. Could not double 2 lest it be left in.
BW 2/1: Splinters
3-level splinters can be a minimum, 4-level ones require extras.
