about me

I started playing bridge in 1980 and have played on and off since then. Now I just play a couple of times a month and the odd tournament now and again. I play a forcing club system with weak NT


Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Having someone look at my convention card and here them say, “Oh you’re playing my system” and finding out your opponent is Dave Berkowicz. He was right :-)

John Storey's bidding problem: J3 A9 74 KQT8532
For the 1 voters, that would be 16+ HCP, any shape, forcing.
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
Yes exactly - with less than a limit raise but enough to reply I always respond 1NT and take a preference to the major. Partner will have at best a bad 15 count so missing game is unlikely
Migrating to 1NT semi forcing
Not sure if this helps but we also play limited 1M opening bid but with weak NT 12-15 HCP which will include a 5-card major. A 1NT response is forcing in all seats and a 3-card limit raise is 1M - 2M. Any 5-4 hand with a 5CM is opened 1M ...
Ribbon events
Oh that makes sense. I haven’t played one since Detroit in 2007 or 2008.

It must be longer than that. I’ve still got one I received in 2010.
iPad issues with BW access
I’m using an iPad and Safari and have no problems. You might try clearing your Safari history, which will also clear all your cookies. It will also clear all your browser sessions so bookmark what you need. Hope this helps.

Just to clarify, 2 - 2NT is forcing to either 3 or 3NT in our system, for better or worse

We’re playing Dave Berkowitz’s version from his “Precision Today”. I’m with you - I find 7 2 2 2 hands make lousy 3-level preempts

Suicide Is Painless
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
I looked up mine, and I’m reminded of one of Agatha Christie’s best novels, “Towards Zero”.
