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.
Attitude or Count?
I always play count when we will not win the trick. A Smith echo will follow to convey the attitude before partner will need it.
Which Slam Is Best
The issue is not finding our best fit, the difficulty of the hand is to play in the suit where you have the Ace. Revert A and A and you would prefer playing 6. It is interesting because we usually prefer playing where we MISS trump Ace, so that ...
A defensive problem
Relevant because you see with such problem that you are playing coin flip. How many problems do you accept to go wrong at the table before studying and adapting methods to situations? "Dummy wins trick" is frequent enough to be worth having an agreement. Suit preference signals are good in ...
A defensive problem
When dummy takes first trick I play count in 3rd seat and the Smith echo asap, typically in trump suit. Partner therefore has no K
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
Well, heavy client is obsolete, Flash is obsolete... even web-based is obsolete. Future (present...) is Cloud and Mobile native apps. I struggle with clicks on a Smartphone (GUI to be rethought, possibly like Funbridge) but Tablet is definitely the place to be at the moment. Developers energy should go there ...

Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
Our 15-17 balanced is always 1 and we respond the Major with Texas. This let enough space to distinguish balanced support (15-17) from shapely support (possibly weaker). With 1 partner we play fit also with Texas so 1 1d 2 is shapely fit and 1 ...
XYZ players - what meaning do you give for those sequences
We play XYZ in France for decades, although more widespread only recently. Experts created it this way for a purpose I understand. We might be outdated but I never had issue with that. I also had the 2M without stopper only 2 or 3 times, so dispensable... but it was ...
XYZ players - what meaning do you give for those sequences
How often do your opponents let you play 2M? Bidding space is better used for covering 4th suit stopper. Priority is to find where we belong and best fallback if NT is not possible and no major fit emerges.
XYZ players - what meaning do you give for those sequences
1 1 1 3 is shapely slam try 1 1 1 2 Any 3 is flat slam try 1 1 1 2 2 3 is invite to game 1 1 1 2 ...
