about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

United States of America

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T7 --- AKQJT86532 9
"those of us infected with the 2/1 virus seem to hate jumping for any reason" You obviously haven't met any sad souls infected with the Fast Arrival virus :P
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: T8732 J9 K7 AKQ3
Surely either-or isn’t a vaible treatment of 4. I think it should be natural because you have way (4) to raise diamonds, but if 4 is a cue then you’re stuck with strong 5-5 hands.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 74 K6 KT873 KT53
Might as well drop the agreement if not employing it here.
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: A984 K52 K AKT83
It did not
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: AQ9 AKJ843 AK6 7
Because...? Partner will respond lighter?
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: AQ9 AKJ843 AK6 7
Undiscussed. Presumably anything partner says other than 3 would force to game. Yes, partner could have nothing
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: A K75432 K7 AKJ2
But is 4 forcing?
Ian Grant's bidding problem: T5 K97 QT82 J952
But I do think you shouldn’t
Ian Grant's bidding problem: T5 K97 QT82 J952
In that case, Pass
What signal do you give?
I disagree pretty strongly with Cornelia, preferring that we signal what we have rather than what we want partner to do. Recently I’ve started seeing that I’m too rogid on this, but that should still be the default IMO
