about me

Can you identify my Avatar?  I'm the best bridge player in Chicago for about three hands a month.  The rest of the time, I just swim along with the other fish.

Michael Shuster's bidding problem: AQJ7 QJ3 2 KQT72
"My feeling was that if we corrected 4♠ to 5♣ it would be a forward going move with a spade fit." Couldn't agree more, so I signed off in 5 because I don't like my red suits at all. So you have some company, anyway.
Lost in Translation?
Norman, please give your wife a Sharpie with a wide tip. She can easily excise the offending passage and enjoy her gift.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Q3 T984 KQT2 AQ2
This, since if you had a spade stopper, you would bid 3NT yourself. Partner will not know that his Jxx of spades is enough.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KJT873 J AJ9532 ---
I would rather overcall 1 on this hand. This is the problem with Michaels when you have lots of distribution but not much high card strength. The second bid can be quite troublesome. If I had to bid, I would bid 3 and hope that partner can take ...
Ok. A stupid question on a Wednesday evening.
I hope that wasn't me!
The New Tricks Tournament Series
I asked Miss Sorting to go to the prom but, alas, she demurred./s
Ron Smith's bidding problem: AT5 AKQT7 KQT5 A
You apparently haven't played with my partner!
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
Which party school? I'm ready!
And the 1!C - 2!D Jump Shift
Gives you more room to investigate. We bid inverted raises with 4 card majors, so the new minor is checkback.
And the 1!C - 2!D Jump Shift
Limit raise in clubs. I play inverted raises are game forcing.
