about me

Hello!  I live in the UK, and work for EY.  Bridge has always been just a hobby for me, albeit a pretty all-consuming one.  I have played for England in the Ladies game.  My husband Richard Winter also plays, and has played for England in the open game.  Recently my son Danny (AKA The Hobbit) has also played in the junior team.  Our daughter Sophie has so far proved to be immune to the bridge-bug.  

Country
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Art Korth's bidding problem: --- KQ763 97 AT8652
Sorry Ben, I wasn't being rude (have been away). Archaically enough pass and double is a hand that would have doubled a strong NT for penalties. The problem is that pass and then double for take out means you don't get to show your hand when they have ...
We don't know why more young people aren't playing bridge
I'd really be interested in widening access to bridge for young players (as I guess the OP is) and if you had some funds, how would you deploy them? I mean, would you try to organise a couple of friendly bridge teachers to go into a couple of friendly ...
We don't know why more young people aren't playing bridge
The Hobbit (my son aged 16) plays bridge. But here in the UK this is not a popular thing for kids to do. My daughter does not and she is just as mathematical as the Hobbit. It's not just that the game is perceived as one for old people ...
Why did you stop playing bridge in clubs, if you did?
You remind me of a story about Roman Smolski. Roman is a bona fide bridge genius, and in fact this story is entirely apocryphal (I checked with Roman himself) but it's so lovely that it ought to have happened even if it didn't. Roman was in charge of ...
Why did you stop playing bridge in clubs, if you did?
People are infinitely ruder online and that's not enjoyable. I have two IDs on BBO, my regular ID I use most of the time, but because BBO awarded me a star I get asked for lots of teams matches or friends catch me and want to gossip. Before I ...
Passed hand 1N overcall
In all my partnerships this is both minors. There is real logic in it with the Grumpy Old Man because our 2M openers are weak and two suited so therefore we will already have bid on those hands that others are trying to incorporate. It's not so clear with ...
Art Korth's bidding problem: --- KQ763 97 AT8652
For me a 2 bid is for take out and doesn't indicate this sort of hand, which is a mainstream treatment. I think the stakes are too high for me do anything more - I don't even know if 4 is making. Sure I can create hands ...
Sarah Teshome's bidding problem: AKQ6432 QTx --- 943
With this hand I underbid by raising to 2 (I polled it because I thought it was an underbid and it was). But I got lucky because I got a favourable lead and trumps were 5-0 so I just squeaked home where the 4 bidders go for bundle ...

In theory it all works, it's just in practice the 3N rebid never happens
Sarah Teshome's bidding problem: AKQ6432 QTx --- 943
i'd be interested if any of the 4 bidders would still bid 4 over a 2 response. In the match my partner elected to respond 2 whilst the opposition responded 2.
