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.

ATB, or is bridge just too tough?
Yes, i think W has done really well and has 'earned' NS erring. I would have assigned most of the blame to West if that had been an option.
Is this too big a position?
I'm happy i passed :).
Dick Wilson's bidding problem: AQJ942 KJ94 Q9 T
Given that we play 4 as a splinter that promises exactly 3 or 4 controls (A=2, K=1) this hand seems to qualify :)
Is this too big a position?
Would minus 420 have been a good score :) ?
Pre-accepting a minor suit transfer
Am i supposed to abstain if none of the choices seem right to me for a pre-accept? I guess i'm saying there should be an option "None of these".
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: AQ K KT753 AQ653
I f one small or were a what would we bid? Close enough for me to not feel bad about 2NT at all :)
Missed Game; Missed Slam
Whether or not you agree with East giving preference to supporting over showing 5-crd ; it should have made it easier for W to at least get to 5
responses to 1NT
We also play it that way and for that reason. "[i]A well-prepared partnership can double anyway to suggest a sacrifice in the short suit.[/i]" That's incredibly risky :)
After simple overcall of partner's 2-level preempts, what are the respective meanings of double and a new suit by responder?
[i]They make a simple overcall. [b](over partner's preempt)[/b] Double is negative, and a simple cue bid is invitational or better with support.[/i] I think you are reading something the wrong way. The bold words are not in the quoted text; presumably you added them, but ...
Do you prefer to play Gazzilli?
Well, i'd guess either the hot pins or Standard would be the most likely compromise :).
