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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I am still not sure about the correct procedure here
I know this player for a long time and I simply could not imagine he intended it as natural. I did not know for sure but if I had to bet I would have bet 2NT was for the minors.

I must add this was played with screens.

2!d Opening to Show a Balanced 18-19 HCP?
The bid is not at all low frequency. The 2NT opening is already frequent enough.

Liam Milne's bidding problem: 9 K87642 82 AQ94
As an aside, those who play Bergen raises might shift the meanings of their 3, 3 and 3 responses so that the latter two are spade raises while 3 shows hearts (an idea I found in the Lauria-Versace system card). That way you can have 2 ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 9 K87642 82 AQ94
I find it absurd that without a lot of high cards I don't have a natural heart response to 1. For a heart splinter you may use 3NT, an otherwise pretty useless bid. And yes, I'd bid 4 with your example hand at any vulnerability. If ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 9 K87642 82 AQ94
I don't see the problem. Is pass a logical alternative to bidding game in one of the majors? Definitely not. Between 4 and 4 there is an easy choice. Why not offer an alternative to 4? Will partner really leave it in with shortness and a ...

Partner knows this as well.

I did play that. However, if that hand type can be excluded (e.g. because of strong BAL 2 opening or 1 including strong BAL hands) I'd play it as Goldman suggested in Aces Scientific: a game forcing 3163 hand (so that you don't have to ...
