about me

Former electrical engineer (power system protection). Now resigned from work.

Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of music, reading, various sports, games of logic.

Started to play bridge in 1974. Won my first major tournament in 1980.

More interested in bidding than in card play.

I used to be a regular commentator at BBO.

Do you play your 2!D opening as a weak 2?
"Alternatively play 2♦ as 18-19 NT and put the weak 2♦ into the 2♣ opening" Yes, that is something I am considering too.
