about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)




But, you don't have to use my simple but effective techniques.  I'll play what you play as well!




NABC 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places.  Winner of 26 Flight A Regional KOs, 85 Regionals overall, 1 Nationwide Charity Game, 9,400+ master points.

Bermuda Bowl RR18: BULGARIA vs USA1
Hi Eugene! How do you find time for these fine articles :) FYI, there is something askew with the auction on the second hand, presumably it was E-W that got to 4?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: --- KQ AKQ52 KQJ865
Would the X'ers please describe how they would prevent partner from bidding majors, more majors, and even more majors? Thanks!
Bermuda Bowl RR6: USA1 vs. SWEDEN
Thanks, Eugene! On Board 22, apparently the USA North didn't insert the 9 after the opening low lead?
Spingold Deal
This is an ideal illustration of the virtue of hiring Brogeland-Lindqvist for a Major Event.
Rebid Problem?
My best guess is that if we're both 3-3 in each major, that the opponents don't have a viable fit :) So, I'm 3-3-5-2 and weak NT strength, so under the partnership agreement, must open 1 (balanced). Partner bids 1M, what now? Should they opponents compete, how ...
Rebid Problem?
Doesn't this risk losing the suit in a number of sequences?
Rebid Problem?
If I'm going to misbid by rebidding 1NT over 1, at least I could have a stopper or reasonable facsimile thereof. Ergo, open 1, and rebid 2, both of which describe where I live, a bidding tip promulgated by several top experts.
Cell Phone Penalty
Perhaps such a "cage match", necessarily being a [b]Senior Cage Match[/b], would prove so humorous as to put bridge back on the map to relevancy :) Anyone for a "Super Senior Cage Match" (presumably in some sort of slow motion)
Upside down attitude, standard count
Pleased that you brought this issue here, Allan. I've always wondered about it, and how it could possibly work. This is the true essence of what BW is all about :)
Original Bridge Event Formats
Running is an individual sport. You can see your entire opposition. Bridge is a team (pair) sport, with direct opponents, but you can't see any other event competitors, so the two indeed seem significantly different.
