about me

During daytime I am a theoretical mathematician, working at the University of Amsterdam. I live in Amsterdam with Meike Wortel, our 3-year old son Lars, and our 0-year old daughter Elin. 

I learned to play bridge in the United States; first in Michigan, and later on BBO. I've been back in the Netherlands since 2009, apart from some time spent in Oslo. 

I currently play in the Dutch league for Witte Huis 3.

I found the background on the nickname Beukertje especially enlightening, well done Christina!
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 6 K7 AQJT63 A654

Paul Gipson's bidding problem: --- AQJT543 KJ 6432
Regarding 4NT, I think it is better to play this as a slam try in clubs, rather than RKC. The slam try will both be more frequent and more useful. You can agree that partner shows keycards when accepting (sometimes named "optional RKC"), so at worst you lose one step.
Paul Gipson's bidding problem: --- AQJT543 KJ 6432
I think 3C is a good bid. The values are good, the shape is good given the excellent suit, and notrump could well be better in partner's hand.
Anti cheating committee
The first part does as well.
XYZ Sequence - Consensus sought!
I play this as 5-5 invite. 5-5 GF goes through 2NT. 4-5 invite goes via 2C.
I'm not selling out
I'm thinking double "should" ask partner to bid 3NT with hearts stopped.
USBF invitational 1: My adventures on BBO part 3
I don't understand what happened. You pitched a club and partner did not play a heart?
Walsh: Perfect for Discovering Weak 4-3 Major Contracts not Strong 6-4 Minor Ones..
I wouldn't say 1D...3C is not bridge either, but only because I'd be too busy throwing up. I don't like 1D..2C much with only 4 diamonds and the possibility of missing a heart game. But, as you mention, the problem hands are infrequent and systems ...
