about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

How would you interpret this bid?
3 KC and a good club suit is awfully strong for a splinter that's defined as at most near a minimum opener. Also, opener has 4 KC so opener knows responder doesn't have 3.
New KO formats
The problem with a 5-bagger in the 3KO is that someone will be the odd person out in pairs if the team doesn't survive the first round.
How would you interpret this bid?
Odd number of key cards, diamond void and clubs are a source of tricks.
Question emailed to me.
Well, they say preempts work. I can see how that might happen. Neither opponent is short enough in clubs to double or has good enough clubs to bid notrump. And both of you will get the lead right if you're defending.
Question emailed to me.
How many clubs do you have?
New KO formats
In Hunt Valley, you play in the side game if you're knocked out first round. Other tournaments I've played this format in start the first session early enough that there's time to play 2-session pairs if you're knocked out the first round, but I guess the ...
