about me

Systems builder having some opportunities to benchmark them in France, would they be highly unusual or little gadgets around standard. Convinced that Fantunes opened the path to a new way of bidding (but I am too addicted to good ethics to win).

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ruling and Appeal (alert failure)
Fully in line with David comment. 3H facing 5m4M is nonsense. East deserves a visit to local ethics committee

It never ends trying to load problem. Possibly due to my location...
Combining preemptive, mixed, invitational and GF minor-suit raises with showing balanced hands.
After 1m 2m and 1m 2NT GF, I think opener has to describe the same features. This means you should study merging and lowest bid is best candidate.
Transfers after 1m-1M-2m?
Stopping low with invites is nice, but clarifying the type of invite is much more valuable. Because game bonus is way better than bidding too high (3 will often make with invite values). Additionnaly, playing in the weak hand suit and at 2 level is better than in the one-suiter ...

PATTERNS IV - PERCENTAGE PLAY
Problem of page 2: We know spades are 2-2. Percentage of diamonds being 2-2? The correct answer is 41,4%. This is a little bit more than probability of a single suit to be 2-2 (e.g. spades). Yes, there is a little correlation. But WAY less than you say ...
PATTERNS IV - PERCENTAGE PLAY
I like your posts: it is always great fun figuring out the flows in your reasoning. Wrong reasoning is no excuse for banning publications, I guess you went too far in other matters. However someone has to take care of finger-pointing errors, otherwise less regarding readers may believe the guru ...
Transfers after 1m-1M-2m?
I have built the following structure, I will explain with 1 1 2: 2 transfer to 2 weak OR any limit 2 GF with 5 2NT transfer to 3 3 invite as usual There is only 2 transfers, each one having a ...
