It has to do with that the top players in chess spend many hours each day memorizing opening theory and it is pure memorization so it is not very fun. But they do it because they want to win money in chess.
Then when they reach 50 years most top chessplayers they decide they have enough money and they will just play causally and not spend the hours studying theory that is required to maintain their level and then they will quickly stop being a top player.

Sad he wrote great articles in the swedish bridge magazine called step by step for intermediate players. He has published them on his homepage. They are in swedish but because how good google translate is you can just copy them into google translate and read them.

Here are them swedish
http://www.scaniabridge.com/sve/sfs.html

And to read them translated to english just click this link. And you see the last number 118. You can just change that number to whatever article you want to read. like if you want to read article 60 just change the number 118 to 60.

Dont start calling the td for this.
There are people that call the td every time the queen is offside claiming the opponents hesitated.
If you start to do that people will start to think that you are a douchebag.

I think Bridgewinners should contact Deepmind and ask if they want to work on bridge next. That would give bridge nice publicity.
Maybe some of the better players here could play against Derpmind then.

Thanks Roland I have been enjoying your commentary and many others on BBO.

For the biggest tournaments Traian Chira have live video streaming on his youtube channel.
And you can have BBO on one half of the screen and the videon on the other.

Now the BBO commentators are focusing on the cards inside the BBO client but there is a more interresting story if the commentators would look at the video and comment on the video too.

The best is to change from 15-17 nt to 14-16. Then you can keep all the advantages of 2/1 and nonforcing 1nt. You will no longer have the annoying problem of having to rebid a 3 card minor when you play with semiforcing 1nt with a balanced 14 point hand. Which will often put you in a worse contract than playing 1nt.

The by far biggest problem with bridge is that the players are community on BBO are very rude to new players. I think alot of young players try bridge but give up after a few times when they get called idiots every other hand when they make a misstake. Im a gamer and have tried probably 100 different computer games online and BBO has the by far most rude community.

A start for BBO would be to disable all chat for new users at a table with a setting to allow chat if you want to.

How many points do you need to bid 2 at once when you play it as invitational?

Read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takeout_double
It says you need at least 9 points to make a jumpbid in response to a takeout double. So you don't have enough points to bid 3 . Both 2 and pass are better bids than 3 . According to wikipedia.

This should be a penalty double protecting the partscore with a balanced 10-11 count and maybe 3 spades. If he was weak and had shape he would have bid 2 diamonds or 2 hearts.

It was a big misstake to not open 4 spades, or 4 diamonds if you were playing Namyats. That might have bought the contract.

I know it is not the question, but I would pass instead of XX.
The reason is that I think XX should show at least 13 points, so there is a big risk that partner will play you for a stronger hand than you have now.
