about me

The good news is that I have won events in Nationals, Regionals, and sectionals. The bad news is that it was 40 years ago, and the player who won those events went away about 20 years ago, and now only comes back for short visits. Sometimes for a hand, sometimes almost for a whole session; but usually he just stands back and grimaces about how I play these days. I used to be the only person in Minnesota who had won events in Bridge and Squash. Now I play in the Friday afternoon duplicate, and play pickle ball in the park with the geriatric set. I was always a better writer than a player. I have had pieces published in the Bridge World and the ACBL bulletin. Favorite convention: mini splinter. Favorite song: Love is a mini splintered thing.  I became a bronze life master in 1975 (it was harder then) and stopped playing in tournaments for over 35 years because of work and family obligations.  Now retired so I started playing locally about six years ago in Grand Junction, Co. and for the past year in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Thus the correct answer is other. The declarer only has a right to be informed under certain circumstances, that is, when it is his turn to play.
Can an invitational-classed club game restrict entry in this manner?
you can limit a game by the number of master points held by the participants, for example the gold rush pairs is off limits to people with more than a certain number of points. Is the problem at this club that the ten best players are not the people with ...
Do you pass
If you tried to abstain at the table, i would summon the director and ask that you make a legal call. Is abstaining like an insufficient bid and is there a penalty, maybe for UI?

Two no trump is natural.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: 754 764 AK96543 ---
I bid seven clubs. Reasons; I. This hand calls for taking out insurance. I don't know I can beat six, and 100 a trick seems like a decent premium for insurance against them making a vulnerable slam. 2. if I bid seven clubs, they can't. 3. I expect ...
Indignor quandoque
I would play a diamond at trick four to try and determine who has the king of diamonds. if it is East, then i would think West needs the king of hearts for his opening bid, and play to drop the stiff king. West has it, then i take the ...
ATB - Wrong Spot
I voted they both bid badly. Bidding five diamonds after partner has signed off in three diamonds is the worst of the bad bids. Bidding four of a minor and going down when you have pushed the opponents to three of a major in a competitive auction is also losing ...

This is the companion hand to Partner's hand is AQT53 K9842 J5 5 This is board number five from the common game on Feb. 2, 2018 The community bid two diamonds by west over a one diamond ...
Forgive this not being a bidding poll
There has been discussion about the statement "No stopping below game unless partner rebids his major". Is this a possible interpretation if the two club response shows a limit raise: "If opener does not have a hand that will accept a limit raise he rebids his major. If he does ...
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: K76 T865 KT KQxx
East West have not discussed three hearts as pre emptive and play three hearts as invitational
