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.

How strongly do you feel?
How strongly do you feel?
"[i]But we quickly found out that leading "3rd" from 4 card suits fairly often blew a trick, so we reverted to 4th best leads. Of course, it is unusual for lead of the 5 vs. the 3 to cost a trick, but higher "3rd best" spot cards more frequently ...
England women's trials
Don't think anyone has done anything wrong if these conditions were allowed / intended. If you don't want this to happen you could easily prevent it (e.g. 3rd pair has to come from outside the trials or 3rd pair has to have played as a pair in the ...
Mentality of Cheating
I think it goes even further. Those people also cheat themselves to the extent that they genuinely rate the win as their achievement. Somewhere very deep down they must know otherwise, but they have pushed it so far down, that it needs therapy to get it back and otherwise their ...
England women's trials
again as far as i'm aware they have a non-playing sponsor, so that is a relative luxury. But that in itself doesn't really mean that the selecting system couldn't be of the variety that the top 2 or 3 pairs in a selection tournament would form the ...
England women's trials
As far as i'm aware the runner up in the last Bermuda Bowl (The Netherlands) had the team chosen from a panel of pairs. Don't think there was any straigthforward way of "selecting yourself on merit". Not saying this is good or bad, but whatever it was, it ...
Michaels variants
+ Om, which is possibly not Michaels?! Anyway, to my mind that's not covered by option 4, because it is one specific subset of that, so had to choose Other.
Is this the correct ruling?
Interesting Khokan :) Makes from some nice scenarios: Are they allowed to take this extra trick they will be getting into account during their bidding of the next deal? So if they think there are 11 tricks, should they be bidding slam? Oh, and if this was the last hand of ...
Muppet When Responder Holds 5=3 in the Majors
"[i]What if opener has 3 or 4 of the other M?[/i]" Then we don't have a fit, do we? Or am i misunderstanding you?
Muppet When Responder Holds 5=3 in the Majors
i would transfer to my 5-crd M. If partner has 3 or more of my suit, we've found our fit; if partner (opener) has less than 3 in my suit AND a 5-crd in the other M, we bid 3NT. If i then have 3 in partner's M ...
