about me

I played lots of bridge in my 20's, before real life took over.


My highlight was representing Italy in a few Junior events around 1989, in a team that included some who became the best players of my generation: Sementa, Versace, Nunes among others.


Playing with them made it clear to me that I was not in the same league and should go on to different things. I have reached a couple of finals of the Italian Open Pairs Championships in the following years and won a handful of regional tournaments but bridge has never been more than a hobby since.

When we won the Italian Open Pairs last fall we tied for the last qualifying position to the finals and got in by tie breaking.
Dick Wilson's bidding problem: Q AKT762 52 AKQ9
I am not forcing to game since this hand is only worth a game force if partner has some fit for s, in which case there's no way the auction dies in 2.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: T8xx AKTxxx Qx x
Richard, you missed the foreword "Partner never holds the one exact hand you're dreaming of".
Should this Q-bid be Natural?
I'd bid 1NT, not very worried if all we have to play is a 2-level partscore. Meanwhile when I hold a good hand with 3-card support for s I will need to investigate whether to play in s, s, NT, and whether to play game or not. For that ...
