about me

I am a Dutch bridge player from Amsterdam, but now temporarily living in Oslo with my girlfriend Meike Wortel. During daytime I am a theoretical mathematician working at the University of Amsterdam.

I learned to play bridge in the United States: first in Michigan, later on BBO. Bridge in the Netherlands was socially refreshing and systemically confusing. After 7 years I'm slowly getting used to the systemic issues.

Foundations of hand patterns
Nice Roland.
Young Guns
I held this hand in a Dutch league game. I've changed the east-west hands for the sake of the story. In reality east held king-doubleton of diamonds and the club queen was offside. All lines would have worked except playing diamonds from the top. Nineteen declarers played 3NT from ...

Thanks Paolo, I think I fixed it.
How Would You Rule
Given the actual south hand and given north is balanced: 24: 0.2030% 25: 0.1170% 26: 0.0561% 27: 0.0237% 28: 0.0120% Either one of us made a coding mistake, or the fact that we only hold 5HCP does seriously affect partner's chances of having 24 ...
Han Peters's bidding problem: AQ2 Q62 AQJ62 QJ
Partner had KTxx KJTxxx xx x. If you double you end up in 4H, which can go down if they find a spade lead (preemptor has a singleton and can get 2 ruffs), but it will often make. If you pass and you lead any diamond ...
Han Peters's bidding problem: T52 AT92 AKQ752 ---
I bid 4D, partner passed holding xx KJxxx J Txxxx. Not the best contract.
Han Peters's bidding problem: 3 82 AKQ8542 Q72
Partner's hand was KQJTxxx KQJx Tx -. I passed, and partner bid 5S, which looks normal. After a diamond lead 5SX goes two off, while 5C could also go 2 down (3 if they misguess the clubs, which they shouldn't). I don't know if partner would bid 5S ...
Playing 6!H - Combine Your Chances
I think that the spade ruff line can be improved by first cashing the ace king of spades, and by crossing in hearts instead of clubs. That way there is less risk of a spade or club ruff, and should west hold a doubleton spade you may still be able ...
Just another hand
I do think that the leading French players tend to preempt more conservatively than the leading pairs of many other countries.
The Most Impressed I've been at the Bridge Table
The most impressive was the dummy who, noticing that partner had completely lost his head, made up that story to make his partner look good.
