about me

I have won ma pairs competitions, many swiss teams events including the National Swiss teams on two or three occasions, The Spring foursomes and represented Great Britain and Wales.  Many of these were professional engagements. I was secretary of the LCCBA for while when Richard Fleet was chairman and we ran a very successful congress at Country Hall.  I was also a bridge teacher for many years and together with my wife Jane Preddy ran the West of England Bridge club.  For many reasons these days I no longer play for real but have at the moment regular games on BBO. My basic bridge education was courtesy of Joe Amsbury, the Sharples twins and Jack Marx.  Watching John Collins was very educational,  My wife was a long term friend of Terence Reese who was certainly one of the finest players who ever lived regardless of your views about Beunos Aries.

It is not a problem TBH I thought I was maybe doing something dumb, maybe I should have reported it but I did not know how to contact someone who could help. Thanks everyone for their help. `
Todd Holes's bidding problem: AJT AQJ96 K9 AQ5
Now is not the time to commit to any strain--note partner has not shown six diamonds nor ownership of the jack. 3 will likely make partner's problems worse but this fifth suit forcing bid can help because she can bid 4 to show nothing to add and ...

Thanks folks at least I know now--some interesting problems too. I am glad I am not suffering from the Ferme Paradox.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Kx Qxx Txx AKJTx
The idea that 2 in this sequence should show two was certainly around in the 1970's the Dutch pair Kreys and Slavenberg (sorry If I spell the names wrong) did nor use fourth suit forcing and were widely acknowledged as great bidders. Certainly we used it in a ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 864 KJT8 AQT4 AQ
If 3NT is right then 2NT is wrong I like the idea of 2 asking and without that agreement I would pass. 2NT just gives me a very bad feeling.
Florin Constantin's bidding problem: Kx AK9x --- AQxxxxx
We need to know no-trump range. What 3 showed and what 4 was supposed to be. The failure to bid 4 was on the face of it encouraging.
Allen Kahn's bidding problem: AK6 A6 AKJ9762 3
By bidding 2 now you are already ahead of the 2 opening bidders. If it were available an Acol two would be perfect, but 2 followed 3 does not work well at all with this hand type.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Kx Qxx Txx AKJTx
When I was playing with Steve Lodge playing Acol we had an agreement that after a two level response two of partner's major showed two. With three you had to bid three. This took care of this type of problem extremely well and likely has some relevance to SAYC ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: Kx Qxx Txx AKJTx
Partner might not be entirely sympathetic when he has Kx in diamonds or even xx.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732
I have known you long enough to know your choice would be 4 because it is the pressure bid. I got your point that by passing 1 you ruled out having a great deal.
