about me

Frequent Australian Open Bridge team representative. I also enjoy writing and teaching aspects of bridge.

I am curious about why, in bridge, many talk the talk but very few walk the walk. 

I am working through a book on the 2014 Reisinger to be published by BridgeWinners.

We expect it to be out very soon.

Kit, We can call it good technique but my view is that most defenders are more worried about misleading partner than tricking declarer. Yes, Brink's early craftiness did come to hurt him, as I would be unlikely to read too much into an early play of the 2.

Yup. Shameless plug: More thoughts on the choice of lead and thoughts about Bird-Anthias findings in the book.

Hi David, That is an interesting point. If we can guess whether West's choice, given various hands, is for an active lead or a safe lead, the negative inferences become quite powerful.

Hi Patrick, On this hand, they were leading 3rd/5th irrespective of honor holdings. I do touch the subject of 3rd/5th versus 4th best/MUD in the book.
