about me

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
the wait is over
North would probably bid 5NT over 5H, convert South's 6C to 6D, probably converted to 6S by South because 5NT suggested two suits, and North might raise to 7S due to the info (revealed by 5H) that East seemed to lack any defence.
the wait is over
At the other table Mike Cornell overcalled 4H. 6S was the final contract. North Liam Milne might have raised to 7S but was probably concerned about a 4-1 spade break after the overcall.
Is this AI or UI?
Ray - Laurie's ruling in our quarter final was made on 18 January, but sometimes 18 January in Canberra in Australia is 17 January in many other parts of the world.
Is this AI or UI?
I hope I am not misrepresenting Laurie Kelso's opinion..... An almost identical situation occurred in our quarter final of the Australian Nationals on BBO yesterday. The Director Laurie Kelso, who is on the WBF Laws Committee and is mentioned in the introduction of the 2017 Laws of Duplicate Bridge ...
A new low for the robots
If a robot was declarer, it did very well to retain that useful DJ on the first two rounds of diamonds.

Havana
Perhaps the promising start to bridge in Cuba by Frankie a decade ago has not continued ref pages 5 and 6 of http://www.bridgewebs.com/cacbf/P%2030%20CACBF%20-%20MoM%202007.pdf. Frankie's website might be worth a look. The address of a place which might have ...
Havana
I played in the Central American Championships when Frankie Frontaura ran it in Havana in 2011. The results of the Pairs are at http://www.bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwom/rank.cgi?pid=display_rank&msec=1&sessid=449384691378019&event=20110522_1&wd=1&club=cacbf. Fidel and Raul's sister Emma played ...
A hand of yore
Clubs break 1-1.
Nick Hughes's bidding problem: 6 T65 AKJ754 KT4
The vulnerability is all-important to me. At any other vul, I would pass. I was South at the other table. The full hand is at http://www.nswba.com.au/tourn/res.asp?yr=2018&dir=state\stf&E=1&R=4&B=22&T=O. The vote for 5D ...
