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.

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda
North hand is clearly too good for 5, so 5 if you dont play FP look obvious. What is less clear is what south should do over 5H. Part of my brain says partner make a slam invite and I have first round control in all suit so ...
Attitude or count (or suitpreference)?
I could lead a high spades to show ace and a low to show the A/K. So for me the question is between showing the Q or a trump promo. Partner K look like hes asking for the Q rather than count in this spot (how are ...
ATB
If west had the 9 2 is a very interesting contract to play/defend.
ATB
South should pass, north X and I convert with south hand and lead trumps. Possible that west raise to 3...
courtesy slam move, leaking the less damaging information
Showing your long suit is very useful for the defence, twice today I lead doubleton only to hit opener AKJxx, AQTxx. It didnt matter since they made 5 instead of 4 but it cost 2 tricks 1NT-2H-2S-3NT-4S 1NT-2D-2H-3NT-4H If opener show their 5 card suit and we still lead its ...
courtesy slam move, leaking the less damaging information
Your missing the point, if you simply bid 4 you might miss a good slam when responder was maximum but not quite good enough for a quant, if you cuebid you leak information on hands where responder is far from slam. So 4 is a no cost way ...
courtesy slam move, leaking the less damaging information
I agree that 4m/4 shouldnt be a cue, but bidding 4C to show a good 4 raise (say nothing about ) can lead to good slam, responder can easily have 15pts bal 5332 not good enough for a quant 4Nt. Even a hand like 98xxx AT KQJ ...
How many spades?
Is it a preference or its just because a poor man freebid is still a freebid ? Side question do you think OP auction is significantly different than (1H)--X---(P)---1S (3C)--3
courtesy slam move, leaking the less damaging information
For a 1Nt opening It look clear to me that the odds that a descriptive 4m help the defense put you down is higher than the odds that a descriptive 4m (natural good suit) pay off dividend by reaching a plus score (make 6 or avoiding a bad 6) that ...
ATB - duplication
If 4 is a cuebid and doesnt promise extras than it should ask for a control. It also mean that 4S should deny a control and force south to keep bidding with the control (today is your lucky day and we can assume you cannot have ...
