about me

Born in the Netherlands, worked as an expert in sleeping disorders till my wife, Jeanne van den Meiracker, best director in the world, decided it was time to move to the USA. Addicted to bridge since I was a kid. i can play bridge all day long but love to play in a reasonable fast tempo. At this moment still faster then ZACH GROSSACK......My strength is that I can focus very well and still am very relaxed at the table. love playing with my 2 favorite clients Joan Cremin and Naren Gupta 

bad thing, I am a life long diabetic and that sometimes can make me grumpy at the table. my biggest ambition is to play a BERMUDA BOWL for team USA. Played many for the Netherlands.

simple old fashioned rule: A NEW SUIT AT THE 3=LEVEL IS GF
Congratulations Team Gupta
We do play odd/even first discard. I did make a mistake and should have played the 7 of as my first discard. I would discard a second and not confuse the matter if I had the AK of . The 2 of was encouraging. Low = enc ...
ALT 5: My adventures on BBO part 5
Hi Patrick. Sounds a little weird to break the transfer if you have no fit. With Curtis I play that accepting the transfer denies a fit. After 3D-3sp=4crd fit, and 3Nt exactly 3 card fit. At least without a fit you can stop in 3 M.
ALT 5: My adventures on BBO part 5
You are completely right, didn’t even think about it. Playing with a client, although a very good one, does some weird things with your mind I suppose.
ALT 5: My adventures on BBO part 5
I think so yes, he could be 3244 or 3235. Would have to play even better........
ALT 5: My adventures on BBO part 5
That’s the thing, opener had only 2. At least it looked like 3, he had AQ
Interesting hand from BBO
You would have made a lot more tricks against me, I would very likely play the 9 of at trick one.
Need your advice/opinion on the following hand
I prefer "my" style. With up to 10 and only a 4 card suit I will take my chance and not jump. A jump to 2M typically shows 6/9 and a 5 card suit. Our agreement is that a raise by doubler shows a fit, not a great hand ...
