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.

I did play that. However, if that hand type can be excluded (e.g. because of strong BAL 2 opening or 1 including strong BAL hands) I'd play it as Goldman suggested in Aces Scientific: a game forcing 3163 hand (so that you don't have to ...

XYZ Problem Hand

"In a field of 130 pairs -1100 was worth 20% of the matchpoints." Nice result in the circumstances.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: K952 92 J97652 7
Partner, with (43)15 would have probably made a TO double. Maybe even with 3325. If he had 4225 then RHO opted for a penalty double with 5 or 6 cards in hearts. Only when partner has 2425 would it be advisable to run but he might have overcalled 1 ...
Flawed Multi
It seems to me that the opps misjudged the bidding, misjudged the play and probably still lost only about 5 IMP's, not 10.
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
However much I agree with what you say, Debbie, to expect my opponents (and myself) to remember to give back my CC seems an utopia to me. And to have several CC's by me just in case I lose them... once I took 3 of them with me but ...
Gazzilli doubt
I thought the real problem would be a weak balanced hand. That's why I think forcing NT and Gazzilli cannot be played together.
When you play xyz
Very interesting ideas here. Thanks all for sharing them.
Do you play your 2!D opening as a weak 2?
Thanks everybody for your opinions and suggestions. Much appreciated.
