about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

United Kingdom

How should declarer approach 3N? (Part two) SORRY - EDITED
Just to check I am not being insane.... this is now about the overtrick?
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: KQ KQ753 KQ9 AJT
Because 4s might be the right contract. Suppose we have Ajxx Kqxx Xx Axx Opposite Kqxx Xx X Kxxxxx I realise 5c might make and 4s go off but I know where I want to play
For Those Who Play Good/Bad 2NT
