about me

Enjoy playing bridge and watching most other sports.

More interested in bidding than in playing, but that's probably because declaring is the worst part of my game Embarassed.

Ray Yuenger's bidding problem: AKJT 98 AJ8 A943
Shouldn't this poll be an article :=) ?
TD please
Maybe the real victims were N/S?
What would you choose?
The partner part is the easiest: i'll stick with the one i have right now :) Conventions i find hard to rank. [b]Stayman[/b] seems difficult to replace, so i guess that would be in. I'd probably include [b]splinters[/b], partly because they apply in many situations ...
Please rank these choices
@ Jordan: You could get different results that way though. Say 100% of the voters have 2 as their 2nd choice, you would get 0% for 2 in a 'normal' poll, but you could have a meagre 5% for 20 different bids each.
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
"[i]I wish a red wavy line came up when I was about to misbid.[/i] Sometimes an opponent waves something red when you (have) misbid :)
ATB --270-ish degrees slam
Don't think this has anything to do with whether or not PFA sucks. 3 key-cards to me rules out PFA. So i would have chosen option 2 if it didn't contain the PFA sucks part.
Helgemo and Helness situation
Monegasks i think is what they are called :)
You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
I abstained. Why is it impossible to 'blame' East for a % of the blame? Doesn't feel right to automatically assume E and W add up to 100
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: 3 AQ8 4 KQJ98643
Actually, for me the main idea of playing this double as 13-15 BAL is to not miss out on 3NT where we both have about 13-15 BAL, but that doesn't mean we can't nail them of course. It's the classical difference between (a 2nd) double being negative ...

One does not follow from the other imo
