about me

Started playing bridge towards the end of 2014. Love it. Trying to get good at it - if anyone is good at bridge - or at least a little less bad at it.

Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
Strongly agree on 1C not 1D to open. Not strongly against 2C, but I did object to the idea that there wasn't an option to bid 1N. Since my partner will expect 3145 as a possible shape I would want slightly better clubs since it is still a lie ...
Dealing Cards
If not speed or convenience, perhaps because you are avoiding the NEWS nowadays, or trying to tell us that it is backwards? Note that this is not a political comment, Will might be avoiding the news for all manner of reasons, or be trying to tell us that the NEWS ...

Max Schireson's bidding problem: K2 KQJT9 J53 T92
Yes, systemically the hand didn't fit either, but the heart suit was calling... thus the poll.
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
I don't feel committed to rebidding the clubs because partner knows I can be rebidding 1NT with 3145. What if instead I had KJxxx of clubs and AQx of spades? Since there I would not feel like it was an option at all to rebid the clubs, my partner ...
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
I think nothing is wrong with it, and I hope that sarcastic suggestion didn't lead anyone to believe otherwise. If anything, I think some platinum awards (e.g., match awards in Swisses) are not truly meaningful and I wonder if they really should be platinum...
What's an Intermediate?
So if you really were considering a redouble then perhaps you are obligated to now that you know partner doesn't have much?
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
Or you could bracket the Vanderbilt and give platinum in any bracket where the average player has over 750 masterpoints :)
What's an Intermediate?
I am definitely reading the book on your recommendation. The last few weeks I have had more than my normal rate of "learning opportunities". Today I put myself in an awful 3N contract and reached a position where it was clear I was going down two. Deciding that only an ...
