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.

3NT is undiscussed so I would expect to play with heart stoppers.
Technique or psychology?
What about 10973 or 10743 would west lead the 3 or something else? 2/4 can be played different ways. When it is almost sure west has Q I might be tempted to try another line where they have no chance for a club switch.

No unfortunately not.
Cologne court judges the prosecution of Wladow-Elinescu vs. Deutscher Bridge Verband.
" Nothing keeps them from coughing away with their skat buddies." I wonder why you think this would be allowed when playing Skat. It certainly is not. "Deuten" (=kind of signalling) is allowed in a card game named Watten which is ...
