about me

I live in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.

Have played Duplicate Bridge since 1973.

Favourite bidding method is a Small Club System that reveals distribution early in the auction in a natural way. 1C has the dual personality of either a C suit unbalanced with 10+ hcp OR strong balanced 17+ hcp. Opening 1D, 1H, 1S all show unbalanced hands with 10+ hcp. Closest method you can get to 5-card minors plus 5-card majors. The system notes are free upon email request.

Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
DL, First, I 100% agree with your assessment. Some ask questions, which is good. They try to understand something new. Many just stay quiet but seem to be unhappy about something that is different. Sadly those people are just hurting themselves by not seeking information they might need and (are ...
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
From RW: "It my experience, the average club player / ACBL member hates most anything other than what ideosyncratic mess they believe is "standard". Their weirdness is complete normal. Whatever the opponents are playing is a tool of the devil." I have experienced the exact same attitude at local club with ...

Opening Bids Disallowed Open 9 / Open+ 11 both read: "*** An Artificial Three-Suited opening bid (with or without known shortness) that does not show at least Average Strength." There is a concern with Open/Open+ Example 8 which reads: "[Open 9/Open+ 11] Mini-Roman type openings must show at least 10 ...
Range for Responder’s Splinter
I am considering using Multi Range Splinters as follows: 1M, double jump shift = 12-13 HCP 1M, single jump shift = 8-11 or 14+ HCP Of course those HCP ranges are not an absolute criteria but they typically increase responder's dummy points by 3 or 4 greater than their HCP. Picked ...
Your Ideal Opening Structure
DCS is a natural oriented style bidding system but gadgets enhance its basic capabilities. Have never yet needed to use 4th suit forcing to navigate my way to best contract. Very happy with the system. It has been continuously improved from 4 years of DCS bridge table experience. Happy to ...
Defense after opponents open weak NT followed by Stayman
Agree it is possible but how can you tell they are bust verses fairly good values?
Defense after opponents open weak NT followed by Stayman
A very nebulous situation for which side has the better hcp strength. To me risk is not worth guessing who it is.
Defense after opponents open weak NT followed by Stayman
Cards over transfer seems right. Cards over an unlimited 2;. usually you are out gunned. Why tell our opponents which opponent has the values? May help our opponents tailor their declarer strategy to achieve success.
Defense after opponents open weak NT followed by Stayman
Don't see why double is cards. Opponents are in an unlimited auction with 2. lead direction seems to be the only thing that is productive for defensive purposes. I'm assuming opponents not playing 2-way Stayman.
