about me

I played lots of bridge in my 20's, before real life took over.

\n

My highlight was representing Italy in a few Junior events around 1989, in a team that included some who became the best players of my generation: Sementa, Versace, Nunes among others.

\n

Playing with them made it clear to me that I was not in the same league and should go on to different things. I have reached a couple of finals of the Italian Open Pairs Championships in the following years and won a handful of regional tournaments but bridge has never been more than a hobby since.

\n

And then in 2016 I did win the Italian Open Pairs Championship.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Making a sow's ear out of a silk purse
Not that it matters much score-wise but you would take 12 tricks on a lead.
Poor overcall leads to poor game
No struggle! Spade and a ruff and the appropriate minor back. Down before starting. :)
What do you say if anything?
Are you your partner's teacher or client? Does your partner care about your opinion on his bidding?
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Yes, as I noted in my edit. Still good for overtricks.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
South does not get to play a third round of clubs ever. It looks like multiple overtricks. (Edit: South gets to play a third round of clubs if he gives up two tricks in the suit. Keeps the overtricks to a minimum, I suppose)
critique the bidding
And how does North know partner holds a singleton ?
Here goes....
Alfredo Versace
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
Felix, it does not seem difficult to me: I support spending my tax money to help refugees, at the same time I don't think that I personally should be tasked with bringing one home.
Many choices, many levels
I'd pass the double and lead the K.
What has partner got?
If it's two randoms at the club I vote a forget.
