about me

Living as I do inthe Netherlands, I am a member of the european bridgecommunity.


My modest bridge-abilities are expressed playing in what in America is probably regional competition (hard enough for me)


I was hooked on this game as a student and have been playing ever since (when moving the first research-point is what bridgeclubs are in the area)


I have 4 kids in their twenties who are more and more selfreliant and selfsupporting. I enjoy the process of letting them go their own way but still supporting them very much.


Next to my passion for this game I also enjoy science fiction, crosswords, other puzzles and mindgames and of course supporting my kids in their endeavours

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Which card do you play at trick 1?
I used my own methods before I saw "standard methods": low encouraging :-)
Brigitta Fischer's bidding problem: Kxx KQ Q AKQ9xxx
This type of hand is one of the reasons we distributed different handtypes over our opening-bids and customised the followups. I can tell partner that I have a semiGF onesuiter in clubs. We might get too high in 3NT, but opposite the right ace and the spade queen I have ...
How do you rule?
System forget by East? In NL normal to play (as added in the description) that 3 is a good weak 2 in 's. In that case East has no reason whatsoever to bid NT, which probably lacks a -stop. So my conclusion is that East thought that 3 ...
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: AJ8 64 Q953 QJ83
I dont get the voting (I am the lonely passer; so far): what is the expectation: that partner suddenly has extra values? In that case he would probably have started with any other bid than 2. I have a bad hand; partner just overcalled and East passed with presumably ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: J3 AQ3 QJ8543 Q8
was a direct 3 a consideration? I would have thought about it very seriously. It's often good to bid a long minor over the multi directly if you can.
Ig Nieuwenhuis's lead problem: AJT764 T KT94 54
Thanks Gregory. We were never leading a after this sequence. Either a trump or one of the minors. Since partner doubled I chose a minor (to prevent blowing a possible, but unlikely, trump-trick) So your inferences are not naive to me. I still dont know any argument to choose ...
Yu Chang's bidding problem: T94 A72 Q94 AJT7
3 as puppet But in my agreements I can ask almost everything about openers hand and then decide where to play with 4NT a distinct possibility; so system-agreements are fairly relevant here.
Peter Jan Plooy's bidding problem: AJ643 AQ732 --- J42
2254? With a J and a Q in the majors?
Ig Nieuwenhuis's lead problem: AJT764 T KT94 54
Uhmmmmm ........ (embarrassed silence) Thanks Buddy. No it wasn't. In creating th bidding problem I filled in the wrong one. This one represents the situation at the table. However: we often disregard the 'colours' in bidding decisions except at this vulnerability. Though bidding at this 'level' for us often makes ...
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: AJT876532 T2 --- K3
I like Namyats with this hand
