about me

Ex-junior (how long can I call myself that..?) I now play mostly in and around Oxford, occasionally national events. I've got a little boy so took a break but am starting to play more again.

I'm a software engineer, recently moved out of finance to focus on search/ai/machine learning.

Country
United Kingdom

Emily Middleton's bidding problem: AKT643 A9 --- QJ963
Steve, partner has only promised enough for 3 but they are essentially unlimited - they're going to get another go. Their hand was almost identical to Eric's suggestion, with Jxxx of spades. (At the table I had additionally ui as partner bid *stop* 2n, so probably has a gf ...

You would expect partner to go on with clubs but nothing in hearts?
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: AKT643 A9 --- QJ963
4 bidders - what are doing when partner bids 4?
Who Will Win the English Open Trials?
Very close between the top 3 going into the last session! . Michael Byrne and Kieran Dyke 87.75 Jeffrey Allerton and Chris Jagger 84.00 David Bakhshi and Artur Malinowski 77.87
Who Will Win the English Open Trials?
Interesting to see the discussion on pairs vs. teams trials. The trials for the ladies team, unlike the open, will be teams. I wouldn't expect thee pool there to be any wider?
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: 93 64 Q6 AKJ9862
Thanks Richard. So the majority disagree with my initial choice of opening but having done so almost everyone passes, as I did. Perhaps I should poll partner's final pass too (though I did fix her somewhat with my slow pass) - holding Kxxxxx x Ax Qxxx.
Emily Middleton's bidding problem: 93 64 Q6 AKJ9862
I passed, though not in tempo, and partner wanted to come in but felt she couldn't. It was the vulnerability that put me off bidding.

Yes, it was a hand from last night's sims, but vulnerability was definitely EW. They did say that boards 20 and 21 were to be removed as there had been a dealing problem, so I guess that was it (good thing this board didn't count for us really!).
Bridge Players on TV Game Shows
Eggheads was good fun, though I didn't contribute much to our success! Nick has been on just about every British quiz show going, most recently countdown. Though not pointless (we applied but have sadly heard nothing)
Bridge goals and resolutions for 2018
I'm entering the ladies trials at the end of the month so that's the first goal. A resolution is to play less weekend bridge so I'm not away from my son. I feel these two are somewhat at odds.
