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.

Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: T975432 5 JT42 J
Is your system different against different levels of opponents? For MP, either 3S or pass is acceptable, depending on your style, but I don't understand why "Opponents are high Flight B or maybe low Flight A" is relevant here.
Grade this call II
I agree that it's fine when partner bids 1, 2, or even 3. But I don't think it would be fine if partner bids 4. Both aces are in the suit which has no spots, with very possible two losers even facing partner's ...
Grade this call II
K is not useful only when partner has no A or Q. Ok, how about 3 kings plus A then? Bid 3?
Grade this call II
I can't agree more. Suppose partner holds 4 kings and 4-card and jump to 4, I don't expect it would be close to making 10 tricks. Besides, since the OP says they are the favorite team in the field, I don't see it is necessary ...
Grade this call II
I think it's crazy, but it's not there so I have to vote for insane. If this is acceptable without, then opening 1 with 109862 7 A653 A83 becomes acceptable too? Someone claims he always open 8+ count hands, but at least he alerts his opponents and ...
ATB on missed laydown 7NT
That I don't really know. But I think the obvious way is just invite after transfer to spades. Hands like Kx AQx KQ10x AJ10x will have reasonable chance to make 6, and hands like Kx Axx Axx AKJxx, or the actual South's hand minus a diamond, will be ...
ATB on missed laydown 7NT
Basically, I blame South for missing the grand, but North should share the blame for missing the small slam
ATB on missed laydown 7NT
North can't simply treat his hand as a flat 10 HCPs hand like AQ + J + J +Q. I can come out many 2N hands which yield a good small slam here, as long as South holds K.
ATB on missed laydown 7NT
I would put 90% on South as his hand is way too good for opening 2N, and 10% on North as his hand is also too good not to invite. Slam is cold as long as South has k as well as good 5-card minor suit, e.g. Kx Axx ...
Bid after partner's break in tempo
it's a noticeable BIT, at least several seconds longer than his 3N bid.
