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.

Florin Constantin's bidding problem: Q2 AQJT32 AKQ2 x
I normally play 4 here is artificial, showing a heart rebid too good to bid 4. But I would not try this with most people.
