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

Natural??
"Any two suits is pretty useless if opener bids 3S " I disagree. It means you can push them to 3 with any of the three possibilities. If your primary goal over 2 is constructive than 'any 2 is not the optimal agreement ( but not hopeless - you are ok ...
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
I think the idea that the hands here are not random is somewhere between crazy and paranoid. I also think that, if one has that thought, it's not a great idea to express that thought in a public forum with no real evidence. Every so often, I play a ...

I also think in Fahrenheit - the only time I think Centigrade is when it's -40.
Superb Sportsmanship
I think there might be a 'very unusual' exception to the non-alert rule. Of course, that is subjective. However, if there is no exception (or even if there is) the current law virtually compels one to ask about every single double (couldn't resist). Even if you don't care ...
Alastair Gidman's bidding problem: A AKx AKT9xxx 98
Because you have no sensible bid with balanced 18-19, a doubleton in partner's M and no stopper (or a stopper that prefers partner declarer). To cuebid on such a hand is to take a trip to the unknown. You also have no good bid with GF 5-5 in minors ...
Mixed BAM precision auction - What is the worst bid?
COG cues is a really tricky subject. Probably best not to play them without solid agreements.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Dominic C: "I have no idea as to the motivation of Mr Clark, maybe it is 15 minutes of fame, and why he feels it appropriate to take the burden of this matter upon himself (and a great deal of time has been spent on it), but often this kind ...
Original or Current Count?
One reason for 'standard' present count is you may need to unblock with a doubleton remaining.
2!C 4+4+MM 8-12 defense
I think Michael B's structure above is probably an imporovement over mine - basically giving up the natural 2 overcall in order to specify the minor in the strong 1-suited minor case. The problem is that most play 2red opening to show the majors - not 2. So I ...
Jim Munday's bidding problem: xxx x Jxxx AKQxx
It seems to me that partner should have been aware that spades might not be the optimal strain. If giving up on grand could bid 5N pick directly over 4. Then convert 6 to 6. Instead, could first try for grand and then follow the same procedure ...
