about me

Canadian player living in Victoria, B.C. Back playing after 4+ years not playing. 3 time Canadian Open Team champion.


As declarer, have gone down 12 undoubled tricks in a slam, and 10 undoubled at the 4-level: clearly i could have either bid or played the hands differently.

ACBL Ranking
Diamond Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Another botched one.
ducking the first spade seems automatic, to prevent RHO winning, returning a diamond, winning an eventual club trick and returning a spade to allow LHO to cash the diamond K, holding us to 9 tricks when clubs are 1=3 offside and diamonds are, as they rate to be, 6-1 ...
Questions for people who play 12-14 1NT
I see that the OP is from the US, so I suspect that comments, such as the 2nd example being a normal 2C response won't be true for him. I have played a lot of 12-14 or 11-14 1N in a 2/1 method. My advice: Use 1C 1N ...
Who Bid Too Much?
I agree with Danny: I like the bid of 5 We have a 3 loser hand and partner took a free call. Even if it were intended purely as a save, we have chances to make 5S. I suspect some confusion then set in, as to whether 5S was ...
ATB - 21 HCP 3NT game
Not much fault to go around, at least if this is imps. If this is mps, then the game bonus is a snare and delusion, in terms of being desirable. I think South should definitely pass at mps. I think that South should also pass at imps, but it's ...
A Request from Ms Manners
Hi Peg I do appreciate the points you make, and will try to take them into account in future postings, especially when I do not recognize the poster/commentator as someone inured to the slings and arrows. However, at the end of the day, there are always going to be ...
A Request from Ms Manners
Peg, as someone who probably falls into the category of poster of whom you complain, I do recognize that you have a point. FWIW, if I criticize an action, and use 'clear' language to do so, it is rarely (indeed, I'd like to think 'never') intended as a criticism ...
What's the best line in 6H?--IMPs same as Matchpoints?
Deleted: my line of cash a club, ruff a club, top heart, heart to the Jack looks very silly if South has 3 clubs and Qx in hearts. So I won't cater to Qxxx in North: I'll just bank of both round suits breaking well
2C Response with 2/ 1 Hand (maybe GF)
Ed: I think this is the situation my partner and I were confronted with in the late 1990's. When playing local tournaments we were prohibited from using our artificial 2C gf response unless we could say that it showed 3+ in clubs. Generally speaking the Laws, the Alert Procedure ...
2C Response with 2/ 1 Hand (maybe GF)
I don't know if the method is illegal, unless opener's responses are also artificial. Such would make 2C an artificial relay method, and I know for sure that such used to be illegal. Whether the rules have changed to allow relay I don't know. However, I think ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
David I am an amateur player, with no high finishes, let alone wins, in any NABC. I have, however, played (not as a client) with or on with teams with a few of the great players in the game, and have been part of bridge discussions involving others. I've ...
