about me

I'm a self employed motor mechanic with retirement looming up. Happy memories of time spent on football and cricket pitches. My dream is to play a tournament in New Orleans and fill every gap between sessions listening to hot jazz!

Flying to Lyon? Be prepared. Flying out? Leave many hours or you may miss your flight
Lyon has been the worst airport for departure queues since long before we started worrying about terrorists.Check-in staff have an attitude problem worse than Parisian waiters. Once you're through the interminable security/passport check the catering and seating is hopelessly inadequate. When you're in the city and ...
Experimenting with weak NT
Rafael's escape from 1ntx is called Houdini in this neck of the woods, and is widely used by good club players.( Our top experts hardly ever use a weak no trump.) Useful add-ons include the ability of responder to look unruffled when he has a rubbish 4333 hand and ...
Should Michaels require an alert?
You think this is a problem? Come over here (U.K.)and you'll regularly get players bidding 2D ghestem (or 2nt or 3c). Partner doesn't alert because the wretch has forgotten which of three or four different versions they are playing or, just as likely, the 2d bidder ...
Excuses, Excuses
I just say I'm working late. If you don't like that excuse,I've got others, as Groucho Marx said about his principles.
How would you rule?
North an experienced player? He's an idiot for making a bid like that without a clear agreement. Just asking for trouble. Surely director should score it 4hx +1, with small percentages for = and +2
Proposed changes to laws 2017: some examples
Why are we tinkering with laws that are not really that much of a problem?Since the 2007 law reviews I've played and directed in 1200 odd club sessions and have seen all the situations mentioned above. Not once has any player hearing a ruling commented that the law ...
Bid meaning
No problem for majority of UK players. Open weak no trump!
Natural or Takeout
I always discuss this with an unfamiliar partner. If I have my way, it's penalty! No problem there. The problem with expecting opener to reopen is that partner has probably broken tempo after the overcall.
Can the Defenders Require Dummy To Stay At The Table?
As the laws specifically state (law 45b) that declarer can play dummy's cards, what's the problem? what bugs me is when a declarer, whose partner has gone off somewhere, expects the defenders to play the cards for him.
