about me

Having my bid, putting down a good dummy, making partner's life easy, getting a plus score. Not that concerned about going +170.

 

Bridge is a great game for bringing to the surface some of our innumerable faults as thinkers and more generally as humans.

John Newman's bidding problem: A864 9 AK854 943
Interesting point John, say in a cramped auction you have this hand AKQxx x KQJxxx x Keycard in diamonds and partner shows 0 or 3.. hmmm Old fashion 0, 1, 2, 3 keycard might make a return, its not without its merits.
It Happened One Day
I think the definition of cheating basically requires at least a hint of dishonesty. In clear daylight telling your partner how to play the hand as dummy is probably more accurately described as breaking the rules, and probably done by someone suffering from some sort of unhealthy impulsive behaviour, and ...
Why Zimmermann should not have won the Monaco Winter Games
Perhaps. I'm not particularly confident on this point. Its hard to refute without some sort of experimenting, as my personal experience alone could just mean I am in a minority (to the extent that I can accurately recall and examine my own personal experience anyway).
Phil Markey's bidding problem: A9 T8 K62 AK9543
I don't think 4S going off has much to do with your hand, maybe 1 trick from your hand which is probably close to its defensive EV anyway. Therefore I don't agree that X is a descriptive bid of your hand, I think pass is closer to the ...

I voted for passing, but I'm not sure I would vote in your favour for an assign the blame post!
Why Zimmermann should not have won the Monaco Winter Games
Lets say this was NV. I think I would be more comfortable doing a maximum invite than a minimum invite. So, I think I would bid heavy without hesitation (even if its a total maximum invite). I would expect that I would be more likely to consider (and therefore hesitate ...
Why Zimmermann should not have won the Monaco Winter Games
You're probably right. To clarify, according to the post, 2/8 thought it was a pre-balance or whatever. So it was like 4 / 8 thinking the hesitation probably was due to extra strength, 2/8 unsure about any special message, 2/8 thinking its a pre-balance.
Why Zimmermann should not have won the Monaco Winter Games
Joe as far as I understand, this misses the point, or skips the first question. The first question is whether the hesitation provides UI. The second question is which bid you are more likely to chose based on the UI - that is the bid you generally can't take anymore ...
Why Zimmermann should not have won the Monaco Winter Games
I don't think there is any universal to state that slow tempo here shows a stronger hand. Apparently 4 of 8 in the poll thought that it did. Sample some more, it will probably continue to be 50%. In other words, I doubt many people will just pass completely ...
Who to blame on this bad final contract?
I'm probably bidding 4S after 3S, in case partner has say club void, 3 quick tricks in the majors. So I could make 5 diamond tricks in my hand, 4 club ruffs, 3 tricks = 12. Or can just do it the other way around and ruff majors in your ...
