about me

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.

Joshua Donn's bidding problem: KQx Ax KJx AT742
For all those who say "take your plus", you get it by bidding not by passing. 2 their way, and 3NT / diamond partscore our way were all cold. Partner had xxxx JTx AQxxxx -
8 ever, 9 never? Before you play spades, lho has 10 vacant spaces, rho has 8. Odds of a 2-2 break 41.18%, 1/2 of those are Qx with rho so 20.59%. Odds of a 3-1 break (3 with lho) 31.37%, 3/4 of ...
Khokan Bagchi's bidding problem: A875 K9874 4 754
I understand the logic to bidding 4, and I'm glad it worked out. But it seems clear to me that 4 is more likely to make. In spades they can much more easily get ruff(s) in the heart suit. And if spades are not breaking then ...
Slow Return
I have answered that several times, and alluded to it in my last reply to you although I didn’t state it explicitely. No I don’t agree that a smooth T is ‘automatically’ more suggestive of AT9x than of ATx, but it depends what the player was thinking about ...
Slow Return
Well John, it’s awfully generous of you to not act on your natural urge to suspend a player for thinking. You would ‘only’ adjust their score even if the other action isn’t a logical alternative. Remind me to bring a bike helmet when I come play in your ...
Slow Return
MR I appreciate that there is no perfect solution, maybe not even a very good one. Your main concern is that no one ever gains from varying their tempo. My main concern is that no one is ever put in a situation where the laws effectively prevent them from playing ...
Slow Return
Of course I am not ok with the scenario you presented, which is proof that a pair is taking advantage of their tempo. But we have no idea if that is the actual scenario. It appreciate that it’s certainly possible, but that would rely on numerous assumptions, and I ...
Slow Return
Michael, I don’t feel that is remotely what I said, but I see little point in going back and forth indefinitely on it. But you didn ‘t mention what you think of the scenario I described, which (as I have since learned the director adjusted the result) seems to ...
Slow Return
Michael, that doesn’t feel wrong to me because as I stated I am not convinced about what the UI even suggests. If matters whether the player is thinking about which suit to return or which diamond to return. Here is what does seem wrong to me. On a human ...
Slow Return
I seriously don't understand changing this result, at all. Who knows what west was thinking about? Maybe he wanted to switch to spades. Maybe he didn't know whether to return T or x with AT9x (I know that when I return the T from that, I always fear ...
