about me

More interested in bidding than in playing, but that's probably because declaring is the worst part of my game Embarassed.

Looks like a 3-crd to me :)
What do you play 1!h-2!s as showing (playing 2/1)?
Mini-splinter , i.e. 4+ support and short , either invitational or slam-interested. 1-3 is the limited splinter.
Apparently it's OK to psych 2c at online regionals

Could an inference be that they knew opponents well enough to guess their chances of success were most likely maximised by giving them a free ride :) ?
Poll: Did you find this site’s April Fool’s joke funny?
I didn't read that particular post (and am not going to), so this is just a general comment. I've always read and it always made sense to me, that humor (humour) can be a way for people to cope with some of the biggest crises in their lives ...
