about me

Player German Open Team.

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

Unluckily we had teammates, who 2015 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.

Do you ever open a 5 Card Major with One Notrump values?
+1. The rare exception where I don‘t open 1NT.
If 5-4 in !c-!d, what bid do you open with?
I nearly always open 1, but of course I don‘t reverse if too weak. Either rebid 2 or 1nt. Suit quality matters, with bad and good I might open 1
The notorious doctors
I discussed that at length with the Chief Tournament Director. He refered to §79C (30 minutes correction period after the official score has been made available for inspection), §92B (time of appeal, also 30 minutes) and §81C3 (to rectify an error or irregularity of which he becomes aware in any ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Even the german press - normally they don't have the slightest idea what bridge might be - mention it:
ATB playing 5m down when 3NT is much better
3 should show something in , either a stopper for NT or a cue-bid for slam purposes. So W should bid 3NT over 3. 3 by E imo would show doubt about 3NT without something good in (and might be 65)
Gazilli Questions - Meaning of opener’s rebids of 3M and 3NT?
1) and 2) show good 6card, 14-16 HCP. 3) is 18-19 balanced, not 3. 4) is 18-19 balanced. With -stopper after 1, without 3 after 1. So the message of 3nt is always ‚18-19, don‘t look further‘ 5) I don‘t use, if you like ...
Analysis and Visualization - 54th EBTC
Great work Ante, and so much more information than just the naked Butler-Scores
After responder´s double of Michaels
I have the simple agreement, that x Nr. 1 and x Nr. 2 are for takeout (including all xx, counted as 1 x), x Nr. 3 is for Penalty. This is valid unless the situation is explicitly definiert as Penalty, which is not the case here. Pass is forcing, unless ...
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 ...
