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

Max Schireson's bidding problem: AK JT632 KQ852 8
That is a good answer.
Max Schireson's bidding problem: AK JT632 KQ852 8
If one was afraid of 3 being passed out on this sequence, why bid 2? Why not bid 5 immediately?
Patterns V - The 4th suit
Napoleon: I think I see where you are getting you “75%” from. I think your mistake is that you are including 3-3-3-4 (4-card clubs) as a possibility. On the bidding, it’s not really possible. There are three possibilities – 4-3-3-3, 3-4-3-3 and 4-4-3-2. In two out of three, it is ...
Patterns V - The 4th suit
4-3-3-3 PLUS 3-4-3-3 is going to tend to be greater than specifically 4-4-3-2 - unless enough of the 3-card hands will pass.
UI in club games?
"I think LHO's ten seconds should start when you actually place your bid on the table." Of course. It would be ridiculous to think it should start before the bid is known. "but the regulation clearly says the ten seconds begins when the stop card is put away." It ...
UI in club games?

UI in club games?
Most of the time, you will be right. But: The pause over 2N is not useless. It allows responder more of a chance to make an in-tempo bid. The pause over 4N is not useless. It gives opener a chance to consider with a medium hand - or a hand that ...
UI in club games?
Unless the law specifically says, 'The 10 second period does not begin until the Stop Card is removed', I think the 10 seconds begins at once. When the Stop Card is removed should not be relevant.
UI in club games?
The warning occurs when the skip bid card is introduced. I think the 10 seconds begins then. To say that the 10 seconds does not start till after the warning is complete, and that it is not complete until the card is removed is, for me, the argument of a ...
