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."

Favorite Bridge Memory
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.

Adam Meyerson's bidding problem: AKQ92 AK854 Q Q4
When opener is 65?? or 74?? or 54?? its somewhat easier. So the annoying cases are when its 64?? & 55??, when opener "dive" at the 4 level the 64?? are normally a little bit safer & a little less frequent than a 55?? so over the annoying 3H responder will make ...
Asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is ‘very rare,’ WHO says
yes :{ thanks for correcting.
Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: QT652 J9 AJ62 T9
Your post is a textbook example of fighting point schmoints with more point schmoints. QTxxx J9 AJxx Tx is almost a GF/2Nt jacoby but xxxxx xx Axxx xx is a preemptive hand ? "AKxxx, ATxx, x, Axx. That's only 15 HCP"
Which carding situation is this?
I think you should focus more on the than the count aspect of this hand. If im west and discourage what do I expect my partner to do ? I think the odds that his switch is is very high compared to him finding a switch especially ...
New Offering from Max Chauvet
I assume Richard line is strip the and play trump to get to dummy and play low to 7 or cover if the Q/T pop up. But for that you need to keep 2 entries on dummy.
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
Its our first bad week now, from 2-3 deaths last weekend to a cumulative of 29 today mostly in seniors home. AFAIK all dead were either 70+ or had a medical predisposition.
Interesting pts/rating system on euchre apps
Obviously Elo is more accurate but its also a way to lose customers. Masterpoint is obviously close to worthless as a skill evaluator but its having the worse effect that some stronger players with few master point and some weaker players with a lot of masterpoint prefer to stay home ...
Alpha Go the movie on youtube
I don't know how to explain it to you but the order of magnitude is not close at all, the play of the card and the simulation of possible holding with 52 cards is trivial (like in minutes not hours) compared to a game like Starcraft 2. What the ...
Alpha Go the movie on youtube
The type of game doesnt matter that much for example you could make a game where a robot need to cross the street without getting hit by cars. You could have some cars no drivers they are just physical objects (think Atari asteroid), cars that are driven totally randomly, Tesla ...
Alpha Go the movie on youtube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkt51PTCQG4&t=2201s game that make no sense even for the strongest GM I was told. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPexHaFL1uo&list=PLtwgYi5EtlSc39zoTVl_oAYCvU0MY5Q_Q&index=3&t=834s Another Star Trek game Same game with better commentary IMO https://www.youtube.com/watch ...
