about me

I am an academic living in Ankara, Turkey. I started duplicate bridge around 1984 when I was a graduate student at ISU in Ames, Iowa.  (Thanks to the departed Harvey Burkholder, the director of Ames Bridge Club during those years.)


Nowadays, I can only make time for playing in one or two major national team tournaments in my country each year. I also help administrate the web page of my bridge club: (sorry, it is only in Turkish).

do not stumble over mountains...
Surely so. Yet, I don't know the bidding and who the bidders are. It was a 48-team event. One of my teammates conveyed the hand to me. Anyway I don't think it would be a likeable one.
do not stumble over mountains...
I don't know. I didn't wonder about the bidding.

If one has 3-4-3-3, A will not drop in three rounds.
Play as though double-dummy
No doubt it would have worked on me, since I was the one who went down on the first trick. However, I am not sure how effective it would have been on the declarer above...
Are you for an unusual defensive play?
In that case, he gets away with down one only...
Are you for an unusual defensive play?
Richard Fleet: The problem was originally intended to emphasize a fun part of the game. Incidentally, would you be sorry if you played a small and declarer won with 6?
