about me

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

Mike Bell's bidding problem: Q8765 KQ762 AK6 ---
I'll tell you what IS a rock-solid bet: NONE of the people who voted for 4S were "betting on partner having the heart ace".
Mike Bell's bidding problem: Q8765 KQ762 AK6 ---
(a) I am not a mathematician, but according to my calculations the probability that the trump holding in partner's three-card invitation will contain no face card is less than 18%. Could be my ciphering is agley. (b) I have never suffered from BMS (Bi-polar Michaels Syndrome) so am not ...
ATB - doubled partial score making
I believe the canonical version is: "If I do not make five or six doubled contracts per week against you, you are clearly not doubling me enough."
Mike Bell's bidding problem: Q8765 KQ762 AK6 ---
you could go ahead and do that and you would still have enough to bid game
Mike Bell's bidding problem: Q8765 KQ762 AK6 ---
It is obvious what the challenges might be for declarer. None of that changes either of the two pivotal facts: (a) we have a 4.5 loser hand; (b) we are vul at IMPs. Slam does look rather far-fetched under the circumstances, so it is a question of which game ...
ATB - doubled partial score making
I agree that most would, but I don't see why they should. Opener has to be 55 and may very well have better diamonds than spades. Moreover, if we calmly pass in tempo they will have little reason to think we are in a seven-card fit in 2D for ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T6 K753 AJ9 AT96
(1) Your assessment of RHO's likely strength-range is heavily based on the presupposition that NS are playing lebensohl in this situation, an assumption that is both: (a) gratuitous, since the conditions do not stipulate anything of the sort; and also (b) unreasonable, since the re-opening double was by a ...
ATB - doubled partial score making
The presumed 8-card spade fit may not be a "sure thing" but it is extremely probable -- because if EW have a shred of sense the 2D rebid will show five cards, and W would likely not even return to 2S with doubletons in both suits, let alone holding 2S & 3D.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T6 K753 AJ9 AT96
(1) It will be quite a rare deal on which there is a game for dealer's side after the sequence-stem PASS-(Weak2)-PASS. (2) Meanwhile partner of the opener can have a pretty good hand with little fit for the Weak-2 suit and thus be able to consider a ...
It took 45 years but eventually....
Pretty dreadful auction. Jacob labored for seven years and got Leah instead of Rachel. But back to the grindstone for another 7 and he got Rachel. So maybe another 45 years hence you will get your reward.
