about me

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

Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?

Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
Seems to me that there's an important related question: In 2/1, does 1H-2C, 1H-2D, or 1D-2C deny four spades? If no, then 2S makes lots of sense independent of strength. If yes, then 2S must be discussed. I prefer to play that you establish the game force first ...

RIP - Jan Janitschke
I knew Jan slightly. He spent the last several years of his bridge career playing pro with local aspirants, so I was his opponent at the table fairly often. He was always patient with his clients -- never twitched no matter what -- and was amazingly able to deal with whatever contract ...
Second Thoughts about U31 Junior Event
Tiny point. I suspect you meant Kevin Rosenberg instead of Kevin Dwyer.

How about XX and XY? (Not to exclude all the XYYs and other variations.)
U31 junior event
I like to think of "female" as an adjective. So, if you need to specify gender, you'd say "female person." Granted, this doesn't work too well here.
