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.

Thanks to Mats and to the messenger, Peder.
Jump support after reverse
As I currently play it, the cheaper reverse does not promise one single card in the suit, can be e.g. 3307 (even when not strong enough to force to game).
After a 2!C-2!D Marionette Break in XYZ
I don't think opener needs 16 to bid 2. In fact I think a good 14 is more than enough. Why, is it a catastrophe if partner wanted to sign off in diamonds and now has to bid 3? He knew I might have a balanced hand ...
After a 2!C-2!D Marionette Break in XYZ
Bill and Marty, responder has a 4 bid available for that miracle hand.
Delayed Double Ambiguity
X shows a penalty pass over 1.
After a 2!C-2!D Marionette Break in XYZ
As 2 was not forcing, slam is out of the question. Therefore, forcing heart bids are not needed. Responder, with 5 hearts, either passes, bids 3 as an invitation or bids game. With 4 hearts he signs off in 3 or makes some natural invitational bid.
Does 2!d response to 1M ideally promise 5 !ds?
I will have less than 5 diamonds only when I'm going to raise M and want to show where my strength lies.
Forcing or not? Best practices in high level decisions
4 just showed a strain in which there might be a profitable save against 4. 5 showed there might. IMO, if anyone is in a forcing situation here it is the + side but teven that is debatable.
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
South. All bids by North were perfect.
I am still not sure about the correct procedure here
Michael: I could not refer to any partnership experience because that was a first time partnership, we hadn't discussed much and the situation was quite complex (I don't remember exact details but it was about a redouble made in the second round of bidding).
