about me

Avid Dutch bridge player; currently, due to an intense familiy life with young children, hardly playing IRL. Still enjoying playing on BBO occasionally.

Fan of special bidding systems, especially Australian / New Zealand systems with symmetric relay built in.

The Weak Pass
1st/2nd: Limited TRF 1-op; 3rd/4th: natural & forcing 1-open.

Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
Against strong (14+): Inverted Psycho Suction X = strong 2x = either two-suited in x & the suit above x, or one-suited in the suit two suits above x. Example: 2 = either & , or just 2N = pointed or rounded suits Length and strength depends on vulnerability. White vs red 4-4 is okay. Against weak (15-): Miles (from Marshall Miles “Strronger Competitive Bidding”) X = strong 2 = majors 2/ = transfer; followed up with 3m implies 4M and 6m; followed by 2N means one-suited 2 = 5+ & 4+ m 2N = 5+ & 4+ m
Joshua Donn's lead problem: KQ852 KT8 95 JT6
It's Matchpoints, so it's not only about beating 1NT. It's about preventing overtricks as much as it is about defeating the contract. In IMPs, I would lead a small spade, in MP, I go for a boring 9
Francisco Montes de Oca's bidding problem: A AKT643 AK5 AKJ
Rather wishful, I' d think. Will he pull with xx xxxx QJxx xxx? On the other hand, he will pull with xx xxxxx xxxxx x, and then you will be in 7 with 0% chance
Learn Bidding in 15 Minutes?
There are four people at the bridge table. You are completely bypassing competitive bidding. In today’s game, that is more important than constructive bidding.
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: K62 KJ4 8643 AQJ
I hope for club length with my pd and want to get the clubs unblocked before he gets in.
Jason Feldman's bidding problem: AJ QJ Jxx AKQJxx
This is not a problem. Double is the normal call with such a strong hand. I suspect that in practice, the normal bid turned out badly. Hence the poll.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQ97543 8 97 J43
4 might have its flaws, but certainly fewer flaws than 2 f1r. With the latter, you promise more values than you have, and you don't get the mesage across that you have a playable suit opposite a singleton.
Vinoth Kumar Raghavan's bidding problem: Q98 Q7 A942 AQ32
Double first time. It's not the perfect hand, but then again, if I have to wait for the perfect hand, I lose too many part scores.
Bridge Still is Not a Sport
in order to play bridge, we use our brain. Our brain is part of our body, and therefore, bridge requires 'physical activity'.

Marion Michielsen and Meike Wortel are both Dutch by the way.
