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

Ok. But it doesn't really translate to the OP auction. For example, your 3 bid that shows and stoppers is not needed - responder already showed a stopper.
Do you mean you play this in general, or on the OP auction?
A Bart Bramley Story
Bart: 1) There was one hand I solved really fast - because I'd seen the theme before. Something like KQ87x of trumps facing AJ9x and you lead low from dummy to to the 8 when RHO shows out. Of course, this means that my beating you on time might not ...
Yes - I think it was called "Untangling 3"
Kevin R: Agreed. But then uou need some artificial bids. Just as, over 1-1M, 3 moat would play 3oM as naturalish, but the percentages say to play it as showing values.
Timo: Not unreasonable. These are difficult areas. Partnershps (and non-partnerships) can only hope to survive. I would tend not to have strong criticism about bids made by my partner in this auction.
Absolutely true. The question is whether opener should attempt to 'use' the cuebid to ameliorate the problem. I don't think the answer is clear.
Will these problems with pre empts never end?
Can you name a form of classical Japanese musical drama?
Frances H: Then I guess you don't buy the concept that 3 implies spade worry. How exactly is opener supposed to bid x, Qx, AKxxxxx, AKx? I guess you could say that hand should bid 3 over 1N - but I'd be pretty nervous doing that without ...
Richard R: Maybe so, but it's definitely a problem. Responder can have a 'great' hand facing 5-5 - but only so-so facing 4-card .
