about me

Enjoy playing bridge and watching most other sports.

Obviously a 6-crd suit qualifies for overcalling sooner than a 5-crd suit and how much you would like on the side might also differ for partnerships but in most partnerships suit quality would surely play a (big) part in deciding whether or not to overcall and partner is way more ...

I can see in my own hand why p might not overcall in :) Her 's must be a good deal stronger than her 's can be in order for this going down on lead. In Kxxxx could be plenty!

Rule this Claim!
Have you seen some of the serious mistakes made at Bermuda Bowl Finals .........?

Rule this Claim!
After the lead 5-0 with East having all five is exactly 0% :)
Rule this Claim!
I'd say the opposite happens also. Some players might feel obliged to make a claim (after all, isn't there something in the rules / laws about playing on when you could actually claim?). Had they just played it out they would have been fine, but having to state their ...
