about me

I love bridge, but my daughter ranks higher. A year and a half old, and she already knows every letter in the alphabet and can count to 14. Sometimes she skips 4 or 5 but we are working on it.

I nearly flunked out of college playing so much, won a few things, left my job to play professionally, and haven't looked back. Even my family has mostly come on board. I also do some work for BBO.

I like kibitzing and talking about hands with great players. When I do l, I always try to learn something.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How do we get to 6!C?
Seems fine until north bid 3NT instead of raising clubs.
ATB: -710
Bidding 2 over 1NT immediately doesn't look unsafe.
UI in club games?
Surely partner should have started considering doubling 6NT or not as soon as 4NT was bid...
David Parsons's bidding problem: Q752 KQ Q32 AT65
What trap? I am happy to bid again over 3NT. I think we can all but ask for keycards and bid 6 right now.
UI in club games?
There can even be several useless pauses in a row, like 2N 4N 6N.
Yet another Jacoby 2nt ATB
East bid fine. West essentially needs 4 cards for slam, and if east has them east should be going on his own. Methods to show the 5422 might help but weren't necessary.
As it was given to me(Or do you duck the first trick?)
It reminds me of a hand from Right Through the Pack where a player ducked the lead in a doubled grand slam, allowing a double squeeze to get out for down one, yet was banished from the club never to be heard from again.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: A AJ76 765 AJ762
You are missing the option for I would have bid slam over 4.
ATB - Missed minor game at matchpoints
South bid perfectly and north bid quite badly, so I will blame north. Even 3 arguably wasn't enough.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: AJ94 Q5 A9 KT764
I think passing is a clear error, no matter how many people do it. Given that partner probably has a singleton spade having not shown support on either of the last two rounds, we can almost guarantee a slam opposite an ace. And 5 should always be safe, in ...
