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

Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: KQT962 Q532 T4 7

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A T93 KJ6 AKT983
agree, but would first want to know which types of hands XX
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: 975 82 K983 QJ94
even in (very) basic precision this sequence MUST have been discussed. So I bid the result of that discussion.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A96542 T87 7 A62
in my agreements: Yes.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AKQ AQT82 K Q942
Yup, I would open this 2NT (with puppet that/transfers doesn't miss a major-fit)
depends on agreed meaning of several bids. AND: 3 preemptive? in 's, with 's? that may influence applicable agreements
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: --- AJ9xx KJTxxx Ax
I've bid my 6-5. Partner may need to know my -control to place the contract. Note: in my book 2 agrees 's as he did not bid an immediate 2 showing better 's. However: I would have another problem as we open this hand differently ...
Andrew Yeckel's bidding problem: AKQJT985 J8 J6 J

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: A86 JT4 A8 KQ732
