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.

Fourth best from shorter suit?
If East pitches a , No one would play the last club. South should play Q instead. Anyway, it won't hurt to play two club tricks first. In fact, to play a at trick 2 is pre-mature. It's a lot better to play a low club toward ...
Fourth best from shorter suit?
I can make two more by playing last club. But I don’t have a chance if west pitches a spade on second club.
Fourth best from shorter suit?
Well, there is no guarantee that K will drop on A. West could have 4351, and if that's the case, you will lose 2, K, and 2. To figure out whether or not to play A, south needs to cash K and A first. If West follows ...
Fourth best from shorter suit?
I'll play K then A
ACBL Spring NABC is Canceled
Ellis, no need to be so sad. At least your partner is always available to play NAP with you, mine may not
What is acceptable risk?
I take the bet
How would you rate South's double?
The actual hand actually shows the danger of getting in with South's hand. I would say it's extremely unlikely for most people with North's hand to bid 3, assuming the bidding goes 1-X-1-2, 2-p-p. Even for some people, myself included, who tend ...
How would you rate South's double?
It's a MP decision. You can't be 100% sure it's the opponents' deal. You may easily make 110 on offense vs. 100 on defense.
How would you rate South's double?
I may or may not double, depending on the state of game and who my partner is. But double now is less risky than taking action later.
Which card do you play at trick 4?
I feel a little better to see so many people here voted for a diamond shift. That probably explains why my partner, East, was so upset after I simply played the last . I think this sets up two tricks in , or 1 plus my 10, while playing ...
