about me

Love all games, I really mean all of them, go,shogi,poker,french tarot, wargames, computer games etc

"I mean, Gus and I never see eye-to-eye on work stuff.For instance, he doesn't like being used as a human shield when we're being shot at.I happen to think it's a very noble way to meet one's maker, especially for a guy like him.Bottom line is we never let that difference of opinion interfere with anything."

The first time Ive really understood how complex the bidding phase can be, at that point it was clear to me that bridge was going to be a great game.

Ronnie Felton's flip-flop
Agree. Also west 4 tend to show more shape. For me its a very obvious double, it keep 3NT and 3Dx in play and AJ is good enough if advancer jump to 4.
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
Its somewhat symmetrical but i believe that 2 to show 5 is slightly better. When you have 5 you are less likely to have a 4M meaning that you will rebid 2NT more often ex (32)53, 3352 2362. If you bypass 2 when you don't ...
Splitting in 2nd Seat: High or Low?
AFAIK one of the reason of low from 2 and high from three vs the opposite is that it make it easier to read if partner unblock from Hx.
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
Agree, frrom a bidding space principle you want to bid 2 with 50% of the hands. So 2 any hand with 5 or any hand without 5 both work nicely (some exception is obv ok). I also like 2D is any min and rest is some ...
Settle A Bet
My DD sim. 14-15 count 5332/6322/5422 both 3NT/4H make 55/56%, so based on this its close but not quite enough for a limit raise imo. If you switch a low for a low club 3NT is now 57% instead of 55% but 4 stat ...
Settle A Bet
I would make a limit only at imps VUL. We open sound.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: --- AJT73 K652 A742
slam with this hand isnt poor but i think opener could be worse than this and still force to slam.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: --- AJT73 K652 A742
3 keycards suggest that we are too good for 5 but I think that 4 is also risky. There is a fair number of hands where it will hard to stop in 5 and 6 will be poor. AKxxxx K Axxx xx
Another ruling case
I would need to see how north alert on other boards before i would make a ruling.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KT9x Kx JTx Q9xx
So you think south hand is sure to get a plus in 2 ?
