about me

I nearly flunked out of college playing so much, won a few things, left my job to play professionally, and haven't looked back. Even my family has mostly come on board. I also do some work for BBO.

I like kibitzing and talking about hands with great players. When I do l, I always try to learn something.

Auction Whacking
I once bid 1NT 6 P P 6NT X 7 X P P P My guess would be the auction in the article has happened more than once before.
Please settle a bet!
Once neither vul my partner overcalled 1 on essentially AKxxx and out. I raised with 8xx of spades and some cards that turned out to be worth no tricks. Opener passed, with a spade void and some 10 or 11 count. My RHO doubled for penalty, with a 16 ...
Petter Bengtsson's bidding problem: AQ4 --- AK985 A9432
2 and 2N are both natural so you are pretty much compelled to double again. I think it’s better to start with 2N with this shape when you are strong enough to act again.
Suggested methods after “problem” reverse of 1H-1N(f)-2S?
Opener doesn't simply accept with a game forcing hand, he bids anything else 2NT clubs (could be signoff, or you can bid diamonds, or hearts or spades to suggest a 7 card fit, or notrump as a slam try) 3C diamonds (likewise) 3D hearts (could be signoff, or doubleton ...

Play transfers here. It is not difficult to see that works much better than either Leb or natural.
Just a couple of pushes
West did not think it was natural. He/she simply assumed the bid was 4 without really looking, then was shocked after all passed to see it was really 4.

Compare that line to winning the K, and leading the J intending to run it. If it loses and a diamond comes back, win in hand and play the ace of hearts. If the other honor doesn’t fall, go for the clubs. This makes when East has ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: AJ Q942 T3 T7643
It may not be odds on, but don’t forget partner may have to double with solid diamonds and not a ton else as the only way to get a 3NT bid out of you. Like x xxx AKQxxxx Ax. On hands like that, defending 3X is a disaster ...
Nutrition/fitness levels of top bridge pros
Feel free to pre-pay. Between April 2016 and March 2017 I ate well and worked out regularly and lost 40+ pounds. Sure I felt better overall, but I detected absolutely no difference in how I focused or played, nor my results. I have always felt playing poker well takes a ...
