about me

I always loved card games and started with Bridge 2008. Not sure what I like more playing or learning, both is fascinating.

After some years I am now a good club player, directing tourneys in our small club and at BBO.

My thinking is slow, my understanding limited and my partnership qualities below average.

Waltraud Gruening's bidding problem: 97 AK9 AKJT942 J
3NT is undiscussed so I would expect to play with heart stoppers.
Technique or psychology?

To Show or Not To Show?
Not prefilling the field for the board number in the bridgemate helps to avoid this problem.

P(f)älzisch iss die Schprooch, wu in der Palz geschwetzt watt. Österreicher und Nordfriesen sind halt weit weg davon ;)
Why are men more successful at bridge than women?
"If a couple learn in their 50s after the kids have left home, the husband will usually turn out to be the better player even if the wife has more spare time and plays more." In one of my courses there came a couple. She had really talent for Bridge ...
Waltraud Gruening's bidding problem: 842 AKQ74 AKJ2 9
With 5/5 in and you can bid 3 gf instead of 2 f1. After 2 from opener 3 will be a new force but still not showing clubs. But that might be really dangerous with an unknown partner. I did not find any ...
