about me

If at times my comments seem annoying or offensive, at least consider the possibility that I am really just being playful.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AT7643 A74 AT6 A
I did not say "only two ways to guarantee doing that". Obviously with certain hands/shapes, partner might do something else even with five hearts. That doesn't change the fact that the best way to hear about hearts across the way is to bid 2D.
Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Ax Txx AKxxxx xx
Or else 3N would mean: I trust your bidding, partner. What hand do you think he has where he would not bid 3C/3D/3H/other over 2N?
Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Ax Txx AKxxxx xx
"Most" is apparently a dialectal variant of "everyone with a pulse".
Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Ax Txx AKxxxx xx
I also am leery of bidding 4C, but certainly not for any reason related to discouragement -- my hand is just fine and I see no grounds for poormouthing to partner. The real problem is that if my small doubleton were good enough support for partner's suit then surely he ...
Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Ax Txx AKxxxx xx
We apparently do not have any agreement about 3S, and in that context here is what I believe partner should expect me to think: Since we are told 2S established an unequivocal GF, partner's 3S -- rather than 3C/3D/3H/other -- suggests that he has something on the order ...
Vedran Zoric's bidding problem: 98xx Axx AQx AKx
A thesaurus is a great book of words, but collecting them does not by itself comprise an argument. It might also advance the discourse, at least a little bit, if the relevance of the pretty adjectives were transparent.
Johan Karlsson's lead problem: xxxxxxxxxxxxx --- --- ---
Reminds us nostalgically of the old scoring table. 1300 is alive and well and living in Stockholm.
Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Ax Txx AKxxxx xx
Does "general force" mean "absolute GF" ?
Vedran Zoric's bidding problem: 98xx Axx AQx AKx
Pass and 3N do not exhaust the options available to S. 3N is a big parlay. A simulation might tell us if partner is really more likely to hold the likes of: JT xxxx KJxxx Qx than something like: x xx KJxxx QJxxx x xxxxxx Kxx Qxx Q KTxxx Kxx ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AQ7 Q4 AQ985 A96
Someone who bids 5H in this sequence is virtually ALWAYS going to be in the HCP range of a passed hand, regardless of whether he has in fact had a chance to do so yet. So that player's proven passed hand status in this auction seems to me to ...
