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.

What does 4NT mean here?
No, we used Bergen raises.
What does 4NT mean here?
Well, in fact the only agreement was that rebid of the M does not show 6. Whether e.g. the 2NT rebid showed extras was not discussed. This was not a regular partnership and they did not have time to go into details. I would say both partners expected 2NT ...
News from the Hungarian bridge lovers

However, the software is excellent, it provides everything you (or at least me) could imagine. The staff does ...
