about me

Retired from the Miami Herald, currently living in Houston with my husband Eric, whom I met playing bridge on OKB.

Followup to the Well
I saved a hand of yours from Nov 29, 2016 to discuss with my partner. You were in 4th seat The bidding went: 1! - P - 1 - X- 2 - 2NT all pass 1 was precision. I was a little surprised that 2NT was natural there. Would it ...
High Level Reverses
An option is to open 1 with 5-5 in the blacks and a minimal hand. Unless you get preempted by pesky opps it's often easier to bid spades twice. Nothing is perfect obviously - pard may take you for 5-6.
2NT is (almost) never natural?
Thanks Will and Frances, I've added that good option.
BW Bridge Polls Feedback Request
Id like to see my percentage even when I take the check mark off "bid publicly".

Congratulations to our favorite home town hero!
I want to do the right thing, but what is it?
Thanks for the example Kit. I think you are saying responder has AI and thus can bid 5. If so, can opener now realize and pass 5 or is it now a slam try in spades to him?
I want to do the right thing, but what is it?
I'm thinking we should talk about what those current non-system bids should mean. We do love Kokish despite this time. Care to share, Steven?
I want to do the right thing, but what is it?
If he forgot, 3 should be clubs, constrained by not making a positive response of 3 to 2. I agree raising clubs was another of my options.
I want to do the right thing, but what is it?
Yu, if he does bid 2 after no alert to 2, do I alert 2S? That will also wake him up but will at least make this his UI problem now. :-)
I want to do the right thing, but what is it?
i was wondering if I should alert 3. What would my explanation be if asked? Seems odd to explain an alerted bid as "impossible in our system" :-)
