about me

A system geek, even played strong pass (Regres) when it was allowed.

Of course have my own relay-Precision, which is of course the best one in efficiency / memory load ratio Smile

Graduated as a mathematician, work as a software developer.


Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making a small slam in a 5-4 fit after finding QJxx on the wrong side. And some succesful falsecards. I forget them easily, thus I write them on my homepage sometimes.
Bridge Accomplishments
6 national titles in Hungary, some cups from Pula Festival
Favorite Tournaments
Pula Festival (Croatia, each September)
Favorite Conventions
bids showing or asking shortness
BBO Username
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Partnership Defense
♠JT987 ♥AKJ2 ♦J7 ♣A9 in declarer's hand is not consistent with their bidding. If you want to play quickly on trump lead, think it over in the previous trick.
Support double vs. suit raise after 1m-(1!h)-1!s-(2!h)
Eric Rodwell (the inventor) thinks that it is useful to treat 3-cards raise and 4-cards raise differently in this situation, it is a useful info if they compete further. I believe him.
Bidding a perfect fit
I play that opener can bid a relay, and now responder's 3-level bids show the other major, 4-level bids show opener's major.
Bidding a perfect fit
If North decides to stretch heavily with the 6-4, then I have a method: 1N - 2 -- 15-17 // Stayman, has a major 2 - 3 -- 4+ , may have // NAT GF, 5+ , mostly with a shortness 3 - 3N -- 4 // support with good (HHxxx+) ...
Should a 2/1 by advancer be one round forcing?
I think you should include non-fit GF hands in cue, because they are rare, and let 2 new remain as NAT NF, constructive.
North could not do anything reasonable. South's first pass is normal. South might have reopened 3 with 4, but it is far from obvious. One point for precision.
1!h-2!s and 1!s-3!h to show 3-card limit raise in opener’s major?
The problem with these bids, that you end up on level 3 opposite a minimal opener, and sometimes will go down. Therefore I think it is better to include this type of raise in the 2 response, then you can stop in 2M. Many players already do it.
What does this 1NT rebid show?
12-14 with stopper and denies 3-card (although might have it with very NT oriented hand). Of course it is not obligatory if you judge that passing is better.
1NT overcall with a small singleton? Legal or Not in ACBL??
Yeah, reading these ACBL rules on bidding I am happy to play in Europe. My view: play whatever you like as long as you share the knowledge with the opponents.
2/1 vs. Precision
Better to differentiate on opp's vulnerability: precision if THEY are vulnerable (and hopefully shut up when we open 1)
