about me

51 yrs old. Swedish.

 

I have played bridge for about 30 years, with a pause of several years due to priorities (family and work).

I'm not a great player, but I suppose I am ok. Been in some national finals, happened to win a medal at pairs.

Interested in bidding and clever methods.

 

Currently working as CEO at an engineering consultancy. Sitting on some boards as well.

Country
Sweden

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I had a nosittej squeeze!!!
Nice ending. One wonders if a club lead and diamond switch from E would have changed anything? East cannot get enough times to remove all the ruffs, so the trump lead was maybe not best this time?
Best use/meaning of this bid.
It might depend on 2/1 or not. If 3C is a suggestion then the tempo of other bids than 3D must have been pre-discussed. Otherwise 3D is a really handy general force. Example 1S-2C F1 2H-3C NF 3S ?
Can you find the Kings?
Ultimate: 1C-2C (start, showing 3 controls and 9AKQp) Then shape: 2D-2H (black suit) 2S-3H (5+S and 4+H) 3S-3N (5-4-2-2) Then controls: 4C-4N (A/K in spades, hearts and clubs and possibly denying spade jack depending on agreements) 7N
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
It is simply a method with advantages and disadvantages. Pros: Able to raise the bidding to the 2-level quickly without inspiring partner to compete unto doom. Cons: Losing information when responder has constructive hand. Complaining because opps are making your bidding difficult is ok when disclosure is bad, but otherwise ...
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
This situation, and many similar, is different from those where one of your choices might be some active call A or some active call B etc. Here it might be a choice between active call A or PASS, in which case it is a long-term winner to get in a ...
The 2-to-the-16th Combinations of High Cards
Nice job. Excellent when examining stuff like cue bids in ultimate club type situations. On might answer questions such as: Given that one player has the following high cards in hens posession, is it then possible to exactly identify the other players high cards using method A or B or ...
2nt taking up too much space? Not really, here's a solution.
A possible tweak is to bid 2N-3C-3H with no 4+M (2N-3C-3N would then show 5H). This leaves 3S open for 5cardS for instance. Then the 2N-3S/3N combo can be used for yet another hand (SI with 44ms perhaps?). It also makes it possible for responders 2N-3H to not ...
What does this 4NT bid mean?
IMO 4S just sets the clubs. 4N is the bid with a spade control and asking for aces (just because this will by far be more useful than a natural 4N, IMO). Not perfect, but sometimes there is no other way to set partners suit than to bid opps suit ...
So Cool ... And Kind of Mean
Yes, the actual deal is 1% of the post and the pure bridge joy experienced by the youngsters is 100% (I know, it adds up to more than 100...). Totally agree. Great post Greg!
1!s vs 2!s after Neg X
It depends much on your agreements for other bids. If 1S instead of X shows 5+, then there are unbiddable hands that might need to double because of a bit too much strength. Playing standard 5card major systems opener might have some 18NT that is not easy to bid if ...
