about me

I live in Sunnyvale California and I'm 22 years old.  I play professional bridge part-time, and just graduated from Berkeley.  I'll be starting a job as a software engineer later in the year.  I've also played a lot of junior bridge representing the USA, and enjoy those tournaments almost as much as anything.

YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
I really don't understand how bidding 6s over 5s would be laughable. Just add the JH and it takes a difficult heart lead and continuation to make slam not all but cold
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
How can bidding slam over 5s be suicidal? On a non-heart you must have play, and may be nearly cold depending on how good partner's hearts are. Now I agree south's ambitions in grand are too much, but bidding 6s over 5s seems correct to me.
Amber Lin's bidding problem: 732 J AKQJ973 AQ
Jeff and Josh, thanks for your comments. I usually fake a reverse (absent a gadget) on hands of this shape, with no better bid. The idea here, for those who may not know it, is that if partner raises hearts, then they will always be at least 5-4 in the ...
Do they always pitch first from their 5 card suit?
I think all guard squeezes are triple squeezes Dave. I believe this is just a guard squeeze
You dug this hole...
I'm saying the psych Mike described is a "baby psych"
You dug this hole...
that ain't even a psych (a psych in name only)
You dug this hole...
if you want to psych gently, you could try a jacoby 2NT bid or something of that nature...
After a Lightner double
Auction 2 is obviously not a diamond void, and thus yes I think asks for a club lead. You wouldn't double based on diamond honors. Auction 1 seems strange to me to bid 5d, which seems obviously lead directing, if you had another void. So I don't think ...
Plan the play in 3NT!
good analysis of a likely hand. I wouldn't be so strong to say that hand is "almost definite" or "obvious", but I agree it seems like a likely hand. (some other hands include hands with 7 spades, or 3 card heart suits, though the lowest heart does somewhat indicate ...
What does 3!H mean in this auction?
I think if you jump to 2s on every 4234 / 4324 11/12 count, you're missing out. At least some of these hands should bid 2c and then 2N over 2H. Partner will likely get the message that you have 4 spades, and you will have better described your ...
