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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

Assign the blame - 3NT failing while slam makes
Unless you have a special prior agreement, there is absolutely nothing about the 3 bid that would suggest partner bid 3N with Jx. 3 could easily be bid on a small doubleton or xxx.

Liam: Sorry if I came across as overly pedantic. DF is a sore spot with me...
How do the diamonds lie?
Well, yes, if you "bang down" the 10 I agree. But if you merely play it...
How would you bid this hand?
David W: If you want to construct hands, how about Qxxx, xx, Axx, 10xxx?

If partner bids 4, what now? If 4, could you be 1-2-5-5, or would you always double with that shape?
Assign the blame - 3NT failing while slam makes
"Non-forcing" was the mantra I grew up with in Scotland. 1-2, 3? Non-forcing of course.
How do the diamonds lie?
But after QUEEN, 10 return, do you think West would have misdefended? isn't that at least as 'easy' for West than trump shift and later 10?
