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.

Check out the book at the link below! More to come.

Maybe 2NT should roughly show that? I’m not sure, but just speculating. Even if it does show that type of hand there is the questionable spade stopper, but I think I would rather not help the opponents too much.
Actually, I just realized you blamed me whichever seat I was in. Probably true in general.
Please elaborate? I am not posting this to blame or embarrass anyone. I simply want to gather opinions and see if my perception was off. I was sitting... in one of the seats (although I realized not long ago I was subconciously always putting myself south when I posted these ...
What does this sequence mean for you?
Hearts and a minor.
Partnership uses 3014 RKC, 4NT only. 2 understood as max with a club fit and heart values (1 2 old-fashioned, not inverted) and 3 understood as a splinter. I can’t think of any other useful information. More: 1 2 game forcing, 1 ...
ATB: -500 instead of +1010
Maybe this didn’t contribute to the poor result, but I don’t think south raising to 3 rather than 4 is really “bridge” either.
