about me

I was recently anointed the Jennifer Lopez of bridge by someone on this website. So, there is that.

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

Defending Against the Precision 2!d Opening
Well honestly my theory about opening 2 is, whatever meaning you play it as almost always works well when it comes up. But yes I do love the weak 2 opener. I am sad to lose it when I play precision.
Defending Against the Precision 2!d Opening
I understand everything fits together as a whole system, and you probably like multi, but I think opening 2 is far worse than 2 for this hand type. 1. You lose the ability to pass 2, which in my experience happens far more than people think and ...
Uncomfortable Satisfaction
I don't think you need an extremely large data set, but of course you need more than one hand. I have never, I think, seen anyone suggest one hand is enough to convict someone. When people report a suspicious hand on BBO to me and I investigate the player ...
Defending Against the Precision 2!d Opening
No I don’t want to be passing with those values if I have slightly the wrong shape like a doubleton major. They might be stealing and they also might be in trouble. And it’s not like I am too scared they will be happy to play in 2D ...
Defending Against the Precision 2!d Opening
Double like 13-15 balanced, sort of like over a multi. 2H and 2S natural. Over those, 3 is a "cuebid", good raise. 2NT natural. 3C strong with diamonds. 3D normal with diamonds. 3H and 3S I think it might be smart to play these are two-suited with diamonds. But ...
Consumer law at work in BBO
Hey now, don’t confuse an amateur comedian for a troll! Second, I don’t know what principle you are saying matters. As far as I can see, your principle is that no business should ever increase the price of anything. Lastly, you are talking about petty money and you ...
Consumer law at work in BBO
I think the next time the price of gas goes up 16 cents you should stop driving. Stick it to the man!
Friday Night Bridge Duels
I believe there is that option. There should be more information on the website. Sorry I don’t know the details better.
Raising 1-heart response with 3H and 4S
Your ask should at least let you out in 3 opposite a minimum three card raise.
Raising 1-heart response with 3H and 4S
I do it for the reasons stated. Games and slams are easy to sort out. The main downside is partner passing 2H with 4-4 majors. The biggest problem with the actual auction was the overbid of 3NT.
