about me

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

\n

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.

\n

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.

\n

And then in 2016 I did win the Italian Open Pairs Championship.

Help Needed! 2016 Italy Cup Final
I think that was the point of the request, this bidding doesn't make sense. Maybe West opened, North overcalled 1NT then N/S were doubled in their escape to 2.

Bridge history is not Soviet history.
What is the best contract on these cards?
I agree about that hand being a weak jump shift, but I would bid the same with up to a king more. As with any other bid it has to have a range and that's what it is for me.

Everybody would bid 4 to play with Hx there, so it should be natural.
What is the best contract on these cards?
I'd never heard of the requirement for 2 to be weaker than a 1/1. Still a reasonable pass at MPs.
Score Adjustment in Berg v Lavazza
Maurizio, do you agree that if Madala's explanation is correct the ruling is strange?
Score Adjustment in Berg v Lavazza
If that's the case I don't understand the ruling.
Claude "Capri" Candillier's bidding problem: KQ98 KQ973 --- K763
The fact that West has 5 s is not known to East. so he cannot bid on that assumption. As to whether and when you would raise with 3 trumps, it's a matter of partnership style and since you didn't state anything one assumes what seems reasonable to ...
Claude "Capri" Candillier's bidding problem: KQ98 KQ973 --- K763
An 8-card fit is not ensured at this point of the bidding. 3 must be used to find the best strain, wouldn't you bid it with Kx, AJx, KT9xxx, xx?
Claude "Capri" Candillier's bidding problem: KQ98 KQ973 --- K763
How can this be a Bluhmer when responder never showed short s?
