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.


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

What is the best contract on these cards?

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?
