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.

This isn't "Just bridge"? USBC Appeal #2
"undiscussed" was probably just a bit lazy or narrow explanation or their partnership agreement. Me and many partner probaly didnt discuss this particular auction but we probably did discuss 1- cuebid delayed or not is stayman (in all case or with some exceptions) 2- using 2nt as a way to ...
Crunch Time
Like in many poker tournaments its quite likely that there is going to be side games that are tougher and more interesting than the main events.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Googling ignoramus + ignorami led me to "Take a Wok on the Wild Side" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=979g01GPmOw (I assure you no need to listen)
What does this bid mean?
I think hands 2&3 are the ones where the 3 bid may bring you significant imps in the long run. With hand 1 and 4 my partnership bid 2NT wich we play as scrambling by a hand that have showned weakness.
Raising 1m after a double - what is most common?
If we are purely preemptive (0-5 hcp) its often quite easy and safe for advancer to X 3 anyway. Not only the 5-8 hcp is more frequent but its often enough values that its getting dangerous for advancer to act over 3 compared to X 3 as ...
Raising 1m after a double - what is most common?
I believe that raising to 3m should be a mixed raise and 3m-1 or 2Nt the premptive. Even if they are more likely to desire to compete when we are weak than mix I find that bidding 3m direct frequently cannot be wrong.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: x AQT AJx 8xxxxx
at these color and VS decent opps 3S doesnt go -2 too often.
Common Leb mishap
If east is able to avoid stayman with 1444 than passing 3 is probably LA. I personnaly think 3C is best played as forward going since I think reaching the best game give more imps benefits than improving a partscore. I would need to see east hand but its ...
ATB +200
I think asking why its important that north show his 2 suiters first (instead of showing strenght) is a more important question than asking who should bid 4. Here north is willing to get to 4S everytime he know that south got 3 card support, michaels is perfect for ...

or at least X 3 to show that hes got
