about me

Have played professionally occasionally the last few years, would be happy to do so more frequently. I normally play locally (CT, NJ, NYC), but would certainly consider travelling, especially to a Nationals. Send me a Private Message if interested.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Pass out of Turn
Did I have a blind spot? [color=red][size=23]☻
Pass out of Turn
Would you respond 2 with (say) xxxxxAJxxxxxx? Would you open a weak 2 with it? (If not, is there really [i]no[/i] change that would work?)
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand? [quote]The four-card support raise or bids that tend to deny three-card support are not Alertable.[/quote] No idea how much to read into "tend", I like laws/rules/guidelines to be black & white, the ACBL maybe not as much.
Why did partner unblock ?
[i]When[/i] did partner unblock?
Simulation help!
Would it be worthwhile to get the majority of those last 418 times right (instead of half of them)? Or is that being snarky?
Pass out of Turn
It seems to me the question is whether it [i]is[/i] a subset. As others have pointed out, there may be 2 responses that would not have passed. Then a Venn diagram would [i]not[/i] have [i]all[/i] 2 responses in the POOT circle... IMHO ...
Simulation help!
Had you shown (the singleton) instead of asking North's shape, North would be in a position to judge the best contract...instead of South guessing and asking for a simulation.
ATB Another Missed Slam
"pitch board's 3 losers on the hearts..." Only 2 pitches, no? So maybe cross in s, set up the s...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
"does 3♣, promising more than e.g. 8HCP, but natural, have a potentially unexpected meaning?" By agreement this 3 bid shows (much) more than the otherwise expected 0+HCP...why wouldn't one alert it?
ATB Another Missed Slam
"53% of (sic) playing the C for 0 losers..." Closer to 58%, no? Not that playing the suit for 0 losers necessarily yields 12 tricks...
