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.

How do you get to Slam?
What I tried for a while and I really like it, is to change responses after a weak 2 bid. You don’t need a million bids to reach game, you do need them for slam purposes. So I suggest. 2M-2nt-3 is the best hand ever. After this start ...
What is your choice?
Club. Partner would have led a spade most likely from H 4th. I think declarer guessed wrong at trick 1. He put up the 10 as he has to if North’s lead was from AJxx
How to play spades for 3 tricks
IF you start with the Queen and it holds, it's percentage to continue with small to the 9. There are more KJ 4th combinations than there are Jx combinations. IF you start with the QUEEN.....

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 ...
