about me

Tried to follow "Mom's First Rule of Bridge" since I started learning this game.  ("No one cares if you are good or bad, don't be slow")

Matchpoints percentage play in 3NT
A good West player is ducking the ace with Axx. So you will manage to lose a trick to Jx onside. Making an already inferior line worse.

Many of the scooter folks are trying out for the circus. So many people aboard plus baggage Traffic in Hong Kong, Tawian & China is crazy. I was a passenger for an insane ride through mountain roads in heavy traffic. Our driver - as most do - just passed trucks around blind turns ...
For Frank Stewart
Some years ago, I was leaving Boston. The garage exit was left on to a one-way street. It was just a little bit in from the corner and if I made a right and crossed over the other street there was the entrance to the Mass Pike, just right there ...
How should Multi be allowed (if at all) under the Open+ chart?
What should TD Rule? Misinformation or Misbid or Extremely Serious Error
Let me count the violations. E/W have MI by definition. The laws instruct that presumption in absence of evidence to the contrary. (This should have always been the case, but the lawmakers had to write this in to counter lack of common sense in some.) Without a CC there ...
