Bridge Information

Favorite Conventions
Fan of general agreements that might not be perfect everywhere, but can be understood in a variety of contexts.
BBO Username
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Measuring Deductive Reasoning
This is very close to my research area (tertiary mathematics education). I highly recommend you check out the following book: Inglis, M., & Attridge, N. (2017). Does Mathematical Study Develop Logical Thinking?: Testing the Theory of Formal Discipline. World Scientific. In its appendices is a variety of logical / deductive reasoning tasks ...
Nabil Edgtton's bidding problem: x KTx KTxxx JTxx
Opponent's system is a standard-ish base?
When two cue bids are available
There is no general rule for all sequences. On (1x)-p-(1y)- sequences such as the one you gave, it is very common to play both 2x and 2y as natural. When you are "deeper" in the auction, it is - I believe - most common for cuebids in opponents' suits to ...
ACBL Wide Junior Fund Game
Would Law 6D2 apply here? "Unless the purpose of the tournament is the replay of past deals no result may stand if the cards are dealt without shuffle from a sorted deck or if the deal has been imported from a different session. (These provisions shall not prevent arrangements, where ...

In Australia we seem to have a lot of written bidding due to the same logic as this. Not the only reason, but it is mentioned when anyone brings the whole "rest of the world doesn't" into view.
GAWRYS Wins Spingold
And a shout out to team Helle who were leading Gawrys at the halfway stage in the RO64 (a feat only managed by Diamond in the whole event)
Seeking PhD Candidate for 3 year Bridge Project
It is common for an academic grant application to include funding for one or more PhD projects closely aligned with the purposes of the grant. In some fields, e.g. Astrophysics, this is the main way that PhD studentships are funded.
BW 2/1: Jumps to 3NT
I love the article by Fred Gitelman on dealing with standard issues in 2/1. There is a whole section called "The (misguided) principle of fast arrival". What we learnt in Bridge 102 is not necessary applicable for life.
Memorizing techniques
These 5 tips are very sensible, and have the overall aim (although it's not stated as such) of moving from "system 1" to "system 2" thinking in the Kahneman sense (see,_Fast_and_Slow).
