about me

24 year old who has played bridge for a larger proportion of their life than the chance of him taking a successful finesse. Unfortunately, the wrong number is growing in this regard. Apparently "studied" engineering in London.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is the difference?
So firstly let me just check that my basics are correct: Without screens: You inform the opps as to a misexplanation at the end of the auction if you are the declaring side, and at the end of play if defending to prevent UI. With screens: You are not entitled ...
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
Enough has been said about who should have said what etc. I personally prefer to focus on the bridge. With that in mind: 1. West might have put back the Q instead of the K to try and obscure East's HCP. Similarly East maybe should encourage ...
Mike Gill's bidding problem: xx AKQxxxxx x xx
Disclaimer 1: This may be just my experience of these spots. Disclaimer 2: I hate the fact I am backing pass Whenever partner has the hand where the "sac" works perfectly they raise me to 6. This combined with the pass over 3 doesn't fill me with hope.
@Mike S: 1NT+3 looks cold to me (yet to see a killing defence) so i don’t think it matters what South does at this (or any) point.
Play 6NT
@Richard. Say West switches to a Spade. We can now set up this ending: Q x - W <> - Kx x - This is a really good position to be in. Definitely far better than most other options. Hence a is clearly a more dangerous return from LHO
Play 6NT
@Richard imo, the T is better then a heart and a diamond to the T as it gives LHO the opportunity not to return another heart (not good for us). Assuming we do play the T and they do return a heart (and hearts are 5=2 as ...
Play 6NT
If break what we do at T2 is "mostly" irrelevant. If we cash and have one club loser then we go for this position: AQx - - - <> x x x - For this to work RHO cannot have: a) K b) 4+ and 4+ If we lead a ...
Going Down Swinging
There was a national pairs session several years ago where my partner and I averaged 29% for the first 12 boards and 77% for the second 12.
Puppet/Muppet Stayman Question
Whilst I like 3=3 (see below) this argument feels redundant to me. If I have 5-4 then we have a definite major fit after partner bids 3. Why not just bid 4m.
