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.

1NT response to 1M open while playing 2/1
Well, if true that is a great argument in favour of the non-forcing NT.
1NT response to 1M open while playing 2/1
In my view 1NT should be non-forcing if you play Gazzilli. Otherwise it should be forcing.
Gábor Szőts's bidding problem: AKQx xx QT987 xx
Thanks all for your votes. What a shame none of you was in my place. I bid 5 and we went down 1 instead of collecting 500 from 5 doubled.
Testers Needed for BW Mobile App
I cannot say unconditionally that, just for the sake of beta testing, I would visit BW more frequently than otherwise. If a limited feedback is adequate, consider me as having chosen option 1.
ATB - Languished in 4 diamonds when slam was almost cold
To bid an invitational 4 with the North hand is such a crime that I voted 'All North' although South might have accepted. It looks about 180%-20% to me.
Are you a contributor?
The diamond lead does not blow the hand.
Anticipate the Split
If North was going to bid 3NT over 3m by South then bidding 1 initially seems to have lost its purpose. In my view 2 serves justice to North's hand. With his actual hand South bids 3 and we're there. With only 3 cards in ...
3 Card Limit-Raise after Jump-Shift
Take away A and add two red queens and slam is laydown. How is responder to know? Bid your fragment after the 3 correction. One reason why 3 with the limit raise is superior to 4.
3 Card Limit-Raise after Jump-Shift
(a) 4, my hand has not improved. (b) I had already passed 1. (c) 4. (d) Pass. (e) 1-2, not 1NT. (f) I had already passed 1. (g) Pass. (h) Pass.
Cue-bid = good raise of partner overcall
My preference is to give up the natural cue-bid overcalls. Problem solved.
