about me

Started playing bridge towards the end of 2014. Love it. Trying to get good at it - if anyone is good at bridge - or at least a little less bad at it.

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making a slam on an endplay against top opponents for a highly improbable +17 imps

BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
I don't think it is as clearly the second choice as say a "martini" is made with gin unless otherwise specified (even if there is such a thing as a "vodka martini") and a "burger" is beef unless described as a "turkey burger" or "veggie burger". More like a ...
BW 2/1: After 1!d-2!c
I play it GF; with no 4 card major to bid and a void, I must have 7 clubs and I have 3C weak and 2C GF which is imperfect but rare enough that I can live with it.
Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
Unfortunately I have met some similar people so I can't be sure it isn't a deliberate attempt to mislead. But here I think confusion is most likely, or at least possible.
Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
Sorry good point Steve. I still don't assume there was intent to deceive if it was a weak player but agree entirely that it was inappropriate.
Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
Depending on the level of the player involved, there may have been no intent to deceive. Plenty of players see QJ tight and AK on the board and think "they are dropping".
Board 26 from the 02/09/2018 Common Game
1. Doh! Thanks completely makes sense. 2. Sonds like we should play spades when partner doesn't have support and usually NT when partner has spade support? That actually sounds reasonable to me because I think I will likely be able to run my spades in a 53 fit playing ...
Q and A about Orlando World Bridge Series CoC
But presumably those events would conflict with the pairs and you would be left for some time with nothing to play? Pairs alone: 350 per player for 7 days of guaranteed play ($50 per player per day). Team of 4 who will remain as a team in the Swiss: 400 ...
Q and A about Orlando World Bridge Series CoC
So most teams will pay $1600 (400 PP) to play for 2 days??? This seems much more expensive per player per day than the pairs, assuming that most/all get to play through at least the semi (B). Is it possible that the price was designed to include the pairs ...
Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
I think it is reasonable to take an equal or slightly worse line to try to gain information from opponents tempo; how much worse on straight percentages depends on your opponents. No ethical issue at all. For example say you have KJ9x in dummy opposite AT8xx. With no information you ...
Board 26 from the 02/09/2018 Common Game
Thanks. The thought of bidding 4S over 3N did briefly cross my mind but it seemed too crazy. Thinking about it more seriously, if I am going to do that I think I should decide in advance to do so and Texas over 3D. Not only does that right side ...
