about me

Player German Open Team.

Some international ranks and medals together with Roland Rohowsky in the last years.

Unluckily we had teammates, who some weeks ago confessed having cheated at least at one of the events, possibly even more.  So if we are still in the official ranking lists, those ranks are worthless now. Sorry for the teams, who had truly deserved them.

Montecatini
Thanks for the report, Paul. I was booked with my team for Montecatini with a nice hotel near the original playing ground. We wanted Italian holiday with competitive bridge. When we received the news about the change via mail from EBL we withdraw our participation and cancelled hotel and travel ...
Transfer Advance into Partner's Suit: Limit or Constructive?
No '+' for the transfer. It should be either weak or forcing to game, the simple raise is invitaitonal or limit or constructive - however you want to call it - but never better. Take away as much ambiguity from the bids as possible. So a 2nd bid after the transfer, however the ...
Superaccepts over 1NT or 2NT with 3 trumps
Over 1NT it is possible to superaccept with maximum and 3cards with 2 Tops. Over 2NT (or 2 - 2 - 2nt or similar) bidding the transfer suit shows a doubleton, with 3 or 4cards you bid something else. So the Transfer to a Major is gameforcing, if a fit ...
Run or stay or ...?
Suppose Opener holds Axx, AKQx, xxx, Kxx and doubler holds KQJ10x, xxx, Ax, xxx. You have 10 cold tricks on a -lead and opener has no second thought what to do. Oh, wait, of course he has. He wants to play 3NT and he doesn't want pard to run ...
Run or stay or ...?
Thank you all for your votes. As some of you have already suspected, there was more than just the polled decision. It was a hesitation case, as the 1NT-opener needed his time, before he passed the double. He was rich of controls, but poor in with Jx. This hand ...
Run or stay or ...?
Right, I forgot that one. But when I noticed, there were already too many votes, so I didn't add it.
Where is Lotan Fisher now?
No Chance for tray placement or coughing on BBO, so who cares? Personal blacklists also work.
ATB: poor slam
The correct answer to the question, which bid landed us in slam would obviously be 6, which landed us there very quickly. But I had to abstain, because slam is not so mediocre, but good enough not to make an ATB-poll
ATB -180 vs +600
I also play x as t/o, but never do it with a singleton, so x promises 2 or sometimes 3 cards
Geir Helgemo N° 1
Yes, i think the 1st 5 teams of European Open get WBF-Masterpoints (zonal qualification for Bermuda Bowl, no idea why 6th placed team doesn't get WBF points)
