about me

Enjoy playing bridge and watching most other sports.

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

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
See comment from the TD just a little bit up in this thread: "[i]Just for factual purposes, the other table played 7S-1, so the number of undertricks was relevant to the result (although we didn't know that when we made the ruling).[/i]"
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
"[i]I opened 2♣ twice at the club today. Both times, my LHO overcalled 2♠[/i]" Was that before or after they looked at their hand :) ?
"I accept"
What you are allowed to do is if you think (from mannerisms you recognize or similar) to remind partner which hand is supposed to play. Once partner indicates / asks for / plays a card, then only the opponents can act on that if it is from the wrong hand.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: QJT6 AKQJT J A62
2 showing + 's :) Wouldn't ever envisage being this strong for that, but still like to get in now rather than wait. If partner has (big) fit, we can probably make a fairly high contract and might get doubled too :).
bidding question
I would expect a very strong hand; trap Pass over 1, Take-out of . So actually both Penalty and take-out :)
Louis Dekker's bidding problem: A6 A9754 AQT5 75
Interesting, but i don't think my teammate would go quite so far as to claim the Pass was forcing. If he had not been short in , i think he would have passed. If Pass (over 2) were forcing, aren't you setting yourself up for "heavy" 2 ...
Why use Neuberg?
"[i]Max does a good job.[/i]" did a good job, since he passed away recently (and had retired earlier)
Louis Dekker's bidding problem: A6 A9754 AQT5 75
There was a BIT after 2. The TD polled several players who passed with the hand i gave you, but he failed to tell them they were playing TO doubles, which obviously made the poll fairly useless. With the right information Pass is still a LA; well actually it ...
David Stevenson's bidding problem: A2 J7 AKT5 KQ764
Dbl. Over 3 i'll bid 4 implying i have as well. Over 4 i'll Pass (and hope).
ATB, or is bridge just too tough?
Yes, i think W has done really well and has 'earned' NS erring. I would have assigned most of the blame to West if that had been an option.
