about me

EBU rank: Premier Life Master.

I play my own "Grumpy Club" system in partnership with my wife.

Short (forcing) 1C (11+hcp, no better bid) with forcing 1D response (neg or natural)

5 card majors, weak NT.

1D in 1st/2nd seat is 9-11 balanced or natural, natural in 3rd/4th.

Multi 2C, 2D and 2NT opening bids, Ekren-style 2H (3-11 hcp), normal weak 2S.

See website for EBU convention card.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Who should have bid more?
Another win for Gerber....I'll get my coat.
How weak can your protective double of 3C be?
I just can't help myself...
How do you get to Slam?
For me a max weak 2 has 8 losers not 7; so I open 1 too.
Parrish Convention or Spaderight after 2!H Bust
Paul Mendleson would disagree.
District 6 Survey about returning to bridge
We use Pianola.
District 6 Survey about returning to bridge
We had a club committee meeting today via Zoom, our current expectation is that the club is unlikely to re-open before February.
To BBO: Please eliminate UI from insta-actions
There's none so blind as those who will not see!
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
Or even just have a precise meaning for what these terms mean.
Who should have bid more?
For me the 3 bid shows a 6 loser hand so I'm definitely interested as East. GERBER gets me to slam knowing partner has 2 black aces and the missing kings.
Play quiz part 1 (trick one play from dummy)
F2f I would have 13 cards to choose from...
