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.

\n

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.

\n

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.
Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: --- AK82 AKQ8 KQT74

Mike Giesler's bidding problem: A4 Q976 A762 KQ3
We have the least high cards, bad trumps, bad shape, and not even decent spot cards. This is a very obvious sign off.
Do you spend too much time playing bridge?
I find it strange that any person who regularly posts on this website can complain that other people aren't spending enough of their time contributing to society.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: KT4 J754 K94 K63
Just because the range is 10-16 definitely doesn't mean you have to bid it with 10, if your hand is random and you are vul and you have no source of tricks. Just like if a 1NT overcall is 15-18 it is sometimes more prudent when vul to pass ...
Something unusual ...
Spade invite+ with 4+ support that doesn't want to defend is standard.
Reporting your team's renege
It means your opponent are gaining tricks against you left and right from their own revokes, and you don't even know it. The universe works that way.
Reporting your team's renege
If you don't say anything, remember that the laws of karma supersede the laws of duplicate bridge.
Steve Moese's bidding problem: --- JT63 KQ65 AKJ64
I learned a long time ago it works so much better to just raise partner the first time.
Half‑Baked?
The two-suited bids show two suits. The "half-suited" bids do not show half of a suit. No thank you.
K98x vs AQ7x
I don't know what all this mention of JTx has to do with anything. You will always pick up 3-2 breaks. If you play the king first you pick up void on your left. I you play the ace first you pick up singleton J or T on your ...
