about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

Zhaofeng Wang's bidding problem: 4 A63 QJ4 KJ6542
Zhaofeng: These small adjustments and the questions arising therefrom make me think of what I just heard Steve Weinstein say on "The Setting Trick" - "one hand becomes ten hands". Great comment Here are my answers: "If you bid 3C and North raised to 3D, all pass to you, what would ...
Continuations after (3X)-3N-(P)-?
"Think 5-5" means that after 3N-4,4-4 that overcaller should bid 4 with 3-2 in the majors. Without this agreement, overcaller would be guessing. And the corollary is that advancer will normally just transfer with 4-6 (6-4 can bid Stayman). I recommend something 'simple' for this ...
Kayden Ge's bidding problem: T2 A AKJ9832 K86
I start with double. I don't worry about partner passing at imps - my hand could be (say) xx, xx, AKQJ10xx, xx. What else can I do except double? I double, because if partner chooses 4 I'm pretty confident clubs will be right (and I can STILL offer ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AJ863 A43 76 QJ6
It's 'normal' for South to rebid 2 with 5-card spades. This says nothing about strength of hand for now, but is F1 - REVERSE PROMISES ANOTHER BID IF PARTNER BIDS BELOW GAME. After 2 - which MAY be weak, opener's 2N or 3 would be NF - and ...
Brandon Ge's bidding problem: AQJT732 T AK9 97
Samuel: Please give partner's hand where 5 on a 5-3 fit is a better contract than 4.
Brandon Ge's bidding problem: AQJT732 T AK9 97
Yes, you might have 4 or 5 losers, and yes it's matchpoints. But if you bid 2 you allow LHO to bid freely at an 'easy' level. Instead, make him guess over 4. If you're doubled down 2, still ok if they have 3N or 4 ...
Amber Lin's bidding problem: x xx AKQJT98x xx
The choice is 4 or 5. 4 has the disadvantage of allowing one opponent to bid 4M then the other can KC. 4 has the advantage that the 4M bid might seem like a satisfactory stopping place for them - and they might miss slam, whereas if ...
Kayden Ge's bidding problem: A7 AQT42 83 QT64
This hand is worth one cooperative noise. Control bid 3, then leave the captaincy up to partner..
Stella Wan's bidding problem: 93 --- AQ8764 KQT63
Btw, at this vul there is a case on this hand for pass, planning 5 over double. Direct 5 might get you too high - and if partner can't act over 4 that could be ok.
Stella Wan's bidding problem: 93 --- AQ8764 KQT63
I vote for 5. This shows 5-card and 5 or 6- card . 4N should be a length differential of at least 2 - 6-4, 7-5 or (with good clubs and not great diamoonds) 7-4. My rule for 4N being TO is that it's always on over their ...
