about me

I am the chief editor of Bridge Winners, and take the lead in moderating the forums. Before my kids, I had more time to play bridge (winning two Collegiate Championships) and write articles. Some of my articles include: System WinWedding PickupSecond Hand Kill, and Searching for Bobby Hamman.

What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
I agree slow play is a bane but some time for thought is also part of the game. Many hands can be handled with normal time controls but some positions are really complex and deserve some thought, especially if you might have to factor in what the other table(s ...
Finn Kolesnik's lead problem: AK9xx xxxx Axx x
I don't know what the power lead is in Junior Standard, but I'd lead the top spade that isn't the power lead. Seeing the dummy is so important against notrump.
Morgan Johnstone's bidding problem: K865 5 A2 KQJ853
While I agree that [i]our[/i] auction does not in itself create a force, one could argue that the opponents' does. East is a passed hand, and West has made a (presumably) weak jump overcall, and they have bid to the 5-level at equal vulnerability. I feel it's ...
Michael Zheng's bidding problem: KQ8543 Q QT4 AT7
Yes. Even though 3 might sound non-forcing (as a rebid of 2 would be in standard bidding), it is impractical to cater to stopping on a dime in the undesirable contract of 3 after partner shows near-game values and six good hearts. Most responding hands have enough ...
Sarah Youngquist's bidding problem: A5 AJT 9643 T986
I don't know what bid is definitely right, but 5 is wrong. How much better could our hand be given that we've limited it to a non-mixed raise in competition? There is no way you can consistently reach the right spot if you bid the same way ...

Bridge and the Environment
Comments removed for being political without any connection to bridge, and likely to spark even more posts in that vein.
Bridge and the Environment
Just so that it's clear. Political discussions that are unrelated to bridge are not welcome here and will be removed when a flag alerts us. However, this is a discussion that is directly related to bridge, so it's allowed. Similarly, mentioning any current politician by name is in ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AT4 KT QT982 JT7
It's not standard, because it exploits stronger players, but in a good event I like a jump to 3NT over any intervention of a strong notrump as "to play" without promising anything specific in their suit(s). I call it "macho 3NT" ("stoppers? we don't need no stinking ...
Postmortem Analysis of March 2020 Bridge World MSC Contest Results
Today, I received a request from Mr. Donnelly, the author of this post, to take this post down along with a companion post containing the April 2020 problems, after a comment in that thread by Frank Stewart urged him to consider respecting the intellectual property of Jeff Rubens, the author ...
