about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

The 5 level belongs to: __________
Tom P: The 5 bid is not an "agreement" - it's just an auction -ending bid (as far as partner is concerned). You can bid it on any hand you want. But you are far more likely to 'want' to bid it if opponents are playing forcing passes. You ...
The 5 level belongs to: __________
Tom P: While what you say is applicable in some situations (such as Fishbein against unsound preempts, or psyching 1N opening vs. non-penalty double), I disagree with you here. "NS agree to play "trap raises" against forcing passes and normal raises against nonforcing passes" North (say) doesn't need an ...
Raises to five of the agreed major suit?
Jumping or raising to 5 of our M (assuming that it is slam-invitational): A) Opponents have not bid a suit. Then: 1) If it is responder's first bid, or opener's second bid 5M is trump-asking. To accept, you need K plus more than minimum length, or KJ (or ...
Why don't DBL?
There is also the problem of what to do if opponents are in 2 when it gets back to you. You might well be wishing you had bid 2 then...
Why don't DBL?
Wrong, at least if you believe Helness. He said he miscounted his points...
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: 92 A982 Q86 A865
Definitely not, you have the 'wrong' trump holding. Over the double, in my preferred methods, I could bid 2N (Lebensohl) then 3 over 3 showing an invitational hand with 4-card and a stopper. Obviously, far from a panacea. The principle is to defend 2 undoubled ...
RR9 - Board 8
As Steve B points out, if you want the OP line, it should be A before the third trump, then to 10 (or duck if you feel you have a 'read' on North). Losing only to Jx, as both the OP and Steve B suggest does appear to be ...
RR6 Board 23
That was just a weak pun - sidekick, psychic...

Was Dorothy the sidekick of Hal Sims?

If you mean a non-psychic 4N, if 2 with isn't enough for you on this auction I'm thinking you don't have enough to KC
