about me

I'm a student at Northwestern University, local to the Chicago area, and run all things bridge on campus! Majoring in Math and Psychology, with a side focus in Game Theory/Economics.

Love everything about bridge-- particularly system discussions and examining various bidding treatments.

Ping Hu's bidding problem: KJ643 AKJ J A854
Start with 1-- way too much of your hand is in the opponent's suit (I like X followed by 2 to show a more concentrated suit). When partner responds with values, now you have an very easy 3NT rebid.
Does a hand for this bid exist?
Something like Axx, Kxx, 10876432, - ? You don't want to overcall (not even for lead direction) and have no good major, you have too much defense after each major has been bid, but you're too unbalanced to justify passing.
Does a hand for this bid exist?
Could also easily just have honor empty 7th of diamonds with nothing, and balance knowing partner has points (assuming the opponents aren't incompetent enough to pass with game values).
Yet Another What's This Double
You also have 2 as takeout specifically for diamonds and spades, so I would imagine this would show at least club tolerance for your double (unless you had more specific agreements).
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: QJ75 K963 54 J82
This question is from some practice with a partner. The question we had was more of the following bid by responder (which I'm about to post)-- but I figured we might find one or two negative doublers that might complain, hence this poll.
More Competitive Double Troubles
I'm unable to edit the article at this point for some reason, so it's stuck there.
More Competitive Double Troubles
It is North's hand (if the ? it's your call kind of thing in the diagram didn't make that obvious).
USA2 Wins Bermuda Bowl
Woo congrats!! What an exciting match!!
Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: JT653 K73 54 K73
Isn't this the point of playing superaccepts? If you're only going to accept with strictly "invitational values", then any 17 count max is going to just accept any invite anyways-- no need for opener to jump to a higher level early and get you in trouble. I mean ...

Um... no.
