about me

Serious bridge player. Used to play only a couple of NABCs and local regionals each year but now playing more local sectionals and club games. Having about 2500 master points about a quarter of which are platinum points. 

\n

The most enjoyable tournament so far is the World Championship Series held in Sanya, China in 2014. The favorite bridge memory is 1998 Fall NABC Reisinger BAM. Playing with Peter Sun, Qinqin Wang, and Jiang Chen as our first try of the event, we ended up with 11th in the semi-final, less than 0.5 from making to the cut of the final 10. Still, this was my first time to play behind screens and against many world class players.

The craziest tournament I played so far was the Irvine Regional 2014. While still working on all weekdays, I managed to play all 7 days, with 7 different partners.

Bid after partner's break in tempo
it's a noticeable BIT, at least several seconds longer than his 3N bid.
What's This Double?
In MP games, "Other" could also include "Greedy"?
Bid after partner's break in tempo
@Aaron, Yes it's against your team. Do you remember opener's hand? You bid 4N directly but I passed since I didn't know I should bid 4N or 5D. If partner had a doubleton H or C, 5D is better than 4N, otherwise we may have 10 trick ...
Bid after partner's break in tempo
@Michael: I didn't bid 5 but I was the responder. I passed 4 because I wasn't sure I should bid 4N or 5. Since I have 6 diamonds, it's quite unlikely to get the extra trick by ruffing spades. If opener has a balanced ...
Bid after partner's break in tempo
@Tom, It's based on the fact they bid 3N red vs. white
Bid after partner's break in tempo
@Tom, I didn't say bid on to sacrifice given opener's 3N bid which should show something like balanced 18-19 or similar hands. If 3N were indeed a funny bid which tried to talk opponents away from bidding 4, then he would not double here
Bid after partner's break in tempo
@Kit, it's a first time partnership so no further agreement exists. Responder's argument is he passed as he doesn't know he should bid 4N or 5, and opponents' argument is pass is a logical alternative so responder is barred from bidding on after opener's hesitation ...
Partner needed for the platinum pair at KC
Got a partner. Thanks to all who contacted me!
Which bids do you NOT agree?
I'm not sure if EW were on the same page for the meaning of 4N, which was not my choice (I would just make a negative double). But bidding 5 over doubled 5 may fare worse only when opener's hand was 3217 or with longer ...
Which bids do you NOT agree?
added 5. I omitted it because I really don't know what their agreement on 4N. Thought it's 2 places to play (obviously it's not minors).
