Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How aggressive are you?
You can always blame Kit :-)
Assign the blame missed slam - 2
DBL 1 is clearly an equity loser compared to 1. 2 would typically be a stronger one-suited hand, or 2-3* support too heavy for a simple raise.
Assign the blame missed slam - 2
IMHO West should've bid 4 over 3N -- as that implies (slammy) diamond support. A direct 2-4 is splinter with heart support. East could/would subsequently bid 4 --and with West delivering good news denying a control, comfortably raise 5 to 6
Jan Kamras elected EBL President
Although I am not familiar with the other candidates -- an excellent choice indeed. Actually, would almost go so far to say it being a watershed moment for European Bridge. I'd confidently bet on significant overall progress being made over the next coming years. Good luck Jan.

Matt Smith Promotion
Great shout Steve, could not agree more. Best wishes Matt.
Do you spend too much time playing bridge?
David Burn- Apologies If I come across as berating, but would you be so kind to succinctly describe your relationship to empathy and compassion? Notwithstanding, the fact of unpreventable demise for every homo sapiens sapiens. Do you concur the journey is best traveled with minimum agony and pain? I am ...
"I'm Getting Too Old For This... Stuff"
Nice article Mikael, thanks for sharing. On the first hand, I wonder if declarer should have smelled a rat as Daniel showed up with zero when playing to hand? East Passing as dealer with 8-3-0-2 or 9-2-0-2 would most certainly be unusual (which would be true if your ...
