about me

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


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.


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.


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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is the difference?
Frances seems to be eloquently trying to explain to you that what you see as a simple case of equivalent situations perhaps isn't, and we do not know enough to be able to say.
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: Q4 642 K9632 AK2
As a passed hand that's a 2 bid.
quantitative 4.5NT
As South I'd bid 2 over 1 and 2NT over 2. As North I'd bid my 3-card suit over 2NT and take it from there.
Plea to BBO software developers
Everybody is overstating the results that can be achieved by using RFID cards (or, worse, video recognition of same). Just look at TV poker: they use RFID cards and the action is very slow. Still, unless each player religiously swipes his cards on the RFID readers they sometimes get lost ...
Too clever for me
At favourable I don't see a real issue.
Jay Barronen's bidding problem: xx xx AKJxxx AJx
Oe even 2NT as pick-a-minor, based on the implicit fit.
So West should trust N/S to tell him what his partner's hand is, rather than believing East. Meanwhile, North does not trust South to bid his hand. Meanwhile, East creates a forcing sequence before giving up. What kind of analysis do you expect people to make?
As per a comment by the OP it should be a raise to 4 to make.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQ6 6 KQ64 KJ75
Funny you should ask
