about me

Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

Another Dream About The NABC
I've had bridge dreams, and they all involved synesthesia. The cards are different colors, and have associated sounds, and all of that. I enjoy them -- they're like a combination of swirly abstract art and New Age music:) And somehow there are deep mathematical relationships between the cards that ...
Bridge Player Archetypes
I was a technical writer for a hi-tech company, and we went through this exercise about five years ago. The goal was to make our manuals more usable. We started by identifying the users of our manuals, and we had several types: pipefitters, electricians, instrument techs, operators, and a variety ...

You would post there if your intended audience is youth players. If your intended audience is the regular BW group, you'd post here.

This is great! Anything that the BW community can do to support? (I.e., can I be a camp counselor?)
Bidding minor suit hands after partner opens 2NT
I have a typo in the above. What I meant to say was: 4C or 4D is Minorwood.
Bidding minor suit hands after partner opens 2NT
If you're up for another set of methods: After 2NT (either opening or after 2C-2D-2NT): 3S is a relay to 3NT. All strong hands go through this relay. Then: Responder can pass, to play 3NT. 4C or 4C is Minorwood. 4H/S shows shortness with length in both minors ...
Margaret Devere's bidding problem: 9 Kxxx QJTxx AKJ
If anybody feels like suggesting an auction to get to either 6 or 6, I'd appreciate it. Again, N holds ♠A9 ♥Axxx ♦AKxx ♣Qxx. We play Minorwood and have the agreement that in a strong auction, if you remove 3NT to 4 of a minor, that's ...
Margaret Devere's bidding problem: 9 Kxxx QJTxx AKJ
That was suggested, but S pointed out that although he was sure that E hand held spades, it might not be clear to N. It was then suggested that in a suction situation, we should just assume that it's the single-suited hand, but there was no consensus.
Margaret Devere's bidding problem: 9 Kxxx QJTxx AKJ
That's what happened at the table. Then, North, holding A9 Axxx AKxx Qxx, bid 3NT. South thought for a long time, then passed. Barring a bad heart break, the hand makes both 6 and 6.
Do we need the BOG?
Datapoint: My current district rep has a column that appears on the district website and in the district newsletter. She lists the major issues that were discussed at the BoD meeting and how she voted. I haven't seen her go into a lot of detail on any of them ...
