about me

 I’ve been a game player and gambler as far back as I can remember including sports betting, blackjack, and backgammon. In recent years, I have put more emphasis on Poker, which along with bridge has always been one of my favorite games. I am a ‘graduate’ of the old Mayfair Club, where we started off as bridge players, moved to backgammon and then to poker. Many top bridge players learned from Al Roth at that club. It was there that Paul Magriel put backgammon on a scientific footing, and for about 10 years almost every top backgammon player learned there. The regulars (including Eric Siedel and Dan Harrington) from the Mayfair poker games have won around 30 WSOP bracelets. Read more by Steve Zolotow

I really wish there were more round robin events or at least early rounds of events. They assure any team which makes the trek will have several days of bridge with or against the best in the world.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 652 AJ3 K KQ7432
If 2S=transfer to C & and 2N means opener doesn't like clubs, then it seems better to play 3D=shortness, and use 2N the transfer to D, bid diamonds if you like them and also use 2N as the weak 5-5, since opener will be declarer in his better ...
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AQJT82 JT85 K AQ
Why did he show shortness instead of diamond length - 1H 2N, 4D?
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AQJT82 JT85 K AQ
If you bid 2N instead of 1S, what is your plan over 4H (weakest hand)? Kxx AKQxx xx xx type minimums are cold for 6, but others may be in trouble at the 5 level, say Kx Qxxxx QJx KJx. Not to mention I'd prefer a club lead toward ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: K8 KJ2 43 AKQT43
Trying to give example of the many hands unsafe at five level, certainly better spade spots don't improve chances at 5 level.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AQJT82 JT85 K AQ
I assume WJS else 2S is fine
Randy Pearson's bidding problem: K9 A963 T743 A95
Automatic pass. Matchpoints=NT, no info to oppon, they may re-open into disaster, even if we have 4-4 Heart fit & make 1 more in H that may be down 1 in 3H when we make 1N or down 1 in 4H when we make 2N.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AQJT82 JT85 K AQ
Why not start 1S. I'd rather show a good 6 card suit, even if it later sounds like I have only 3 hearts on some auctions.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A7 QJ63 KJ743 J4
the other table could easily be in 6S X, so I've already won the board. Not sure why I didn't pass 6S.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: K8 KJ2 43 AKQT43
Why? Pard could have rebid 2S forcing, 3S asks for Q or shown 2nd suit or whatever - 4S sounds like the end QJTxxxx AQ Qxx x or similar will not do well at 5 level
