about me

Started playing bridge at home when i was 9 years old - filling in when there was only three players.

Started playing in a club at age 12, and played my first tournament at 13, with my brother (one year junior to me).

Became a district authorized TD at age 17 and certified as a national TD in 1991. Got an A+ at the EBL TD seminar in Amsterdam 1992. Been chief TD in our national pairs championships final 10 out of the last 12 years.

I don't play very much, later years most

BZ new video. Anybody seen this? What do you say?
Not exactly news. http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bz-people-and-their-strange-mannerisms/ http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/pbu-temporary-suspension-for-balicki-and-zmudzinski/
Wrong information?
With screens, that explanation was given by south.
How would you rule?
Roll back to 4x+1 for -990. And might even consider a PP for north. Bidding 5 is egregious.
NAP-B report: two more hands
But you can't play a spade up as you say, after having discarded a spade on the last heart.
A Diversion
On page 5: "This may induce South to cover...." It should be East.
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: K63 4 K82 KQJ753
I guess 2NT more often wrongsides NT than 3m does.
Control? Or Choice of Slams?
Yes, I agree that it's easy to imagine hands across where another strain is better. But that doesn't mean you should have the ability to switch trumps at the 6-level. You need those bids to explore a grand. Other strains have to be explored at lower levels; here ...
Nikolay Yaninski's bidding problem: Kx 976x Jxx K9xx
It's a reverse by definition; it forces responder to a higher level to give preference to the suit opened. The promised strength is a different matter.
Could we have done more?
That might be. South, in addition, doesn't know how to evaluate his hand.
Control? Or Choice of Slams?
3NT showed the A/K, responder knows about the king thus, but not the queen.
