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

What is this double?
Jay B: " if I bid 2 with 4 I’ll always find the 4-4." Evin if that were true (and it's not - see below), what you WON'T do is clue partner in to the double fit (unless you have some special bid to show that after ...
What is this double?
Kieran: "Note that a double of 2C "for the lead" could work very poorly if they really have clubs and an inclination to play it redoubled." Note that, if you double for the lead, one of them might THINk the other has the inclination to play 2 redoubled - and ...
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Andy B: That's news to me. I thought once you turned your card over, that trick was 'gone'. That seems a bit off, btw, unless it's your turn to play. You give partner a ruff and he's thinking, and you look at your card...
What is this double?
On the assumption that 3+ is not alertable and 2+ is alertable. If asking (with no alert) then doubling carries a different meaning than not asking then doubling, then there is a problem. One should either always ask or never ask - regardless of which hand-type one wants to bid with.
What is this double?
John A: " If double of xx of clubs lead directing is so supperior, why not double of xxx of clubs be lead directing? " One must concede that 2+ covers a LOT more hands than 3+. "3+" (in standard) can only be fewer than 4 when precisely 3-4-3-3. "2+" (meaning 2red ...
What is this double?
Dave B: True. It doesn't alter my opinion that your 'analogy' to nebulous 1m opening is unreasonable.
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Jyri: That's because if people discuss the beautiful aspects of the game (especially card play) they risk looking stupid...
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Rainer: "Let me ask you: What do you do if an opponent asked what the contract is. Would you tell him?" Of course. "Would that be an issue for you?" Of course not "Would you explain what the rules are in this case?" No. "Would you call the director?" Of ...
What is this double?
Dave B: "Do you play double of nebulous opening bids of 1 or Precision 1 as lead-directing?" I don't think that analogy is reasonable. Over a nebulous 1m, your main goal is still a contract for your side. Lead Directing would not be reasonable, Over a GF ...
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Rainer: "I do not think being polite needs to be codified in the "Laws". If an opponent asks what the contract is as a matter of courtesy I will tell him rather than call the director for the "correct" ruling." Do you also "as a matter of politeness", do the ...
