about me

Outside bridge I'm a graduate student working on "big data" and psychology. I'm interested in what data can tell us about bridge. www.robertthorstad.com

Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: T 3 A9842 AKJ964
Follow-up: if you open 1C (or 1D), LHO overcalls 1H, partner passes, and RHO raises to 4H. Are you done?
In the dark. (ACBL)
If it's anything less than an NABC I think this is normal, they're probably just not great players. Would just ask what the double is and get on with it.
Forming new school bridge clubs in D4
Giorgio, considering also reposting on the school bridge club facebook page? Hope you get takers
The disappearing evening club game
Awesome and totally agree. Chess clubs usually allow you to drop in and just play, don't have to play a tournament game. No bar there, but it couldn't hurt :). Having a fun evening atmosphere would be great.
The disappearing evening club game
This is one of my personal soapboxes, hope you can keep the night games at least as a public good type thing. Juniors + working folks often can't play any other time.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: xx KQT9xx x ATxx
Follow-up: what is your plan if the opponents compete to 4? Does this affect your bid now?
Redoubling Isn't Rude
Come to think of it you would have been more than a little sad if the guy bids 5 over XX, no? :P
Redoubling Isn't Rude
Agree I think the comment about XX was clearly off base but these kinds of misconceptions are normal at the club. For me this is in the category of move on and laugh about it at the bar after the game.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: T865 AQT83 AJ7 3
Good question, no. I'll update the description.
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: K KQ872 QT98 AQ4
PMing you who partner is. That sounds like a reasonable minimum to me.
