about me

American expat in Switzerland. Some top-10 finishes in NABC events. Now playing in the top division of both Swiss and German leagues. Developed some unusual treatments and systems (Meyerson, Zirconia, IMPrecision). Might be a better bridge player if I didn't work full time as a software engineer.

“No True Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
Some of these things are different between countries too. In the US we were among the few expert pairs playing non-GF 2/1 bids, but in Switzerland (and France for that matter) it's quite common. Similarly in the US there are virtually no expert pairs playing four-card majors in ...
How do you play this bidding sequence.
Natural game force for me. Could be slam interest or just looking for the best game with only four spades.
Structure and organisation of clubs
It looks like there are around 53 clubs: https://fsbridge.ch/clubs.php They vary widely in membership (from 4 to 243). I'm not aware of any unaffiliated clubs but it's not clear how I'd find out about such a thing. Certainly it's not illegal to ...
Structure and organisation of clubs
One of the big differences between bridge clubs in Switzerland and the US is that clubs in Switzerland have a much more official club membership, for which you have to pay a quite significant yearly fee (on the order of $300). Most clubs allow non-members to play, although the per-session ...
What is your opinion about skipping 1!D after partner opened 1!C?
Wow a post from another Zürich resident! To a great degree this is a matter of partnership agreement. My style doesn't really fit any of the above though. We will always bid diamonds first when they are longer (so 5+ before a four-card major) but with 4/4 ...
Rebid 1NT More Often
I've had a few observations on the play of 5-2 major fits versus 1NT: 1. It's often very important to decide whether to draw trump or not in a 5-2 fit. Most often it is right to draw trump when they divide 3-3 and wrong when they do ...
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19
My employer has shut down all international business travel, asked anyone who has been to a highly impacted country to self-quarantine for 14 days, and asked everyone whose role permits to work from home. Switzerland has banned all gatherings of 1000+ people, including shutting down sporting events and expos. And ...
"Hottest" Debates Among Bridge Experts Today?
Here are a few related ones: 1. When should opener raise a major-suit response with only three cards (1-1-2?)? 2. What should opener rebid with a pattern like 1453 after 1-1?
Follow up to XYZ invite sequence
There are a couple styles around the 1nt bid: 1. Opener always has 2-3 and would never raise spades on three with a balanced hand. 2. Opener has 1-3 (including 1435/1345 for example) but would often raise spades on three with a suit-oriented balanced hand. In style ...
Double on bergen/mixed raise
I prefer takeout of the mixed raise, but lead directional against the invitational raise.
