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

John A: I think your interpretation is inconsistent with the author's first comment on this thread: "Not talking about a DDS, i meant any potential bridge AI in the future, like the kind NukkAI is trying to develp. Similar to that of chess, poker or go."
Is Multi Effective against World Class Competition?
I've often wondered how many people decided to start playing Multi - just because of that one famous hand...

Instead of a Bridgewinners alert that you have the word "cheat" in your comment, how about an alert for articles saying 'If you posed a problem, did you remember to include the vulnerability?
Not only have you preempted their (perhaps) most likely call, you have also left them in more doubt about overcalling/doubling - since your range is 0-12 instead of 0-5. There are plenty of hands that would balance with an overcall, but not want to enter against two 'live' opponents.

Alan F: I see a flaw in that argument. Is it illegal for partner to pass if 3 gets doubled and they have nothing in spades? Also, I've been thinking for quite a while now that, one day, double will ask for a CLUB lead on these auctions ...
I can't speak with asurance about this particular hand. I can say that, generally, in my experience, bidding has beaten passing by a large amount - for a variety of different reasons.
Dutch Spiral
That is exactly the kind of thing you want to avoid. Why reveal stuff that is only useful for slam when most of the time, partner has a game-only hand? Jan's method - showing 4 and only then showing shortness if responder asks - encompasses the correct philosophy.
"against 1S it can be difficult for them to sort out how many HCP they have,so they can end up playing 3NT with like 22 combined. " Maybe. It can also be that, after a lead to the ace, that they MAKE 3N light in HCP - because they get ...
Dutch Spiral
Not often. The only hand should be 6-3-2-2
Dutch Spiral
Jan: I had suspected all that. I was pointing out that one of your 'principles' - "Opener only bids NT if he is not going to declare 3NT" - while not negated - does sort of get hurt here. If opener has a hand with 3-card support and (say) Kxx your method will ...
