about me

I often work in cellular sales/customer service I love bridge and crosswords (french, nyt and cryptics) . I'm a bidding systems expert/geek I've been a pro player and director on/off for many years, but I now mostly play for enjoyment of this very frustrating passion. I'm a recovering alcoholic for 10+ years and will help anyone I can in that department

The dreaded 5-Level (again)
Two five level raises cost me a regional win today. Enough said.
May you bid after partner's hesitation
The answer to the original question is yes... Wheter this hand qualifies is different. I d bid 3 ( I d have bid 2 last time and Xed now with a real pard)
May you bid after partner's hesitation
I disagree Frances. Money makes a difference. If doing something different may cost you the client, then it is a loss of income. Obviously the less you need the income, the more independant you can be. I would not be unethical per se, but I would always make the 'client ...
I also bid 3 on xxx but that s not a very frequent agreement
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: KT8 9653 A43 AQ4
This is an honesty question. As a problem I pass, irl I double or at least I would love my partner to double (don't hold your breath)
