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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thanks, Fred and Sheri and Uday, for everything you have done via BBO. Bridge is better off in so many ways due to BBO. The only negative thing about BBO was that it perhaps took Fred out of the 'player circuit'. I have missed him at tournaments - he was a ...
1 NT passed out
I heard this Al Roth story. 1N on his right - all pass. He made a non-club lead and dummy came down with AJ109x. Roth had Qxx. Declarer won the lead and played a club. Roth played the Q and it went, ace, KING. Without missing a beat, Roth said 'That ...
Defensive Problem
Since I think there are many Easts for whom the 10 would not indicate K, the same goes for many Souths.
Defensive Problem
"The T as SP indicated the K, didn't it?". Not to many Easts (including the actual East), who might just see it as the 'normal' card. It's always easier defending in a problem than it is at the table. The lead was made at least partly out of ...
Defensive Problem
Francis: "you have helpfully pinpointed the location of the heart honours to make the strip squeeze the percentage line (rather than the simplicity of the spade finesse)" Interesting. I'm not getting why it's percentage to play West for the K. As far as I can see, West would ...
Defensive Problem
I'm beginning to think the 'result' of this problem might have been one of the following: 1) West played a 'robotic' in tempo 10 and East played back a 'normal' - never considering the SP (or 'weird') implication 2) West played back a 'robotic' 10, but East read it ...
Defensive Problem
Well, a club is beyond weird. For that, West would need to switch to card from another deck... 'Weird' means weird in context. Partner bid diamonds; and dummy has xxx and QJxx. If my partner switched to a spade when I couldn't signal and a was right, I ...
Defensive Problem
Richard F: "Even assuming that h10 is weird, what would a weird play by East be?" A spade. That's why I said this hand is 'easy' to solve - because SP and 'weird' match. I probably didn't express myself clearly. But let's say the hearts were A72. Would ...
Defensive Problem
My first thought reading the problem was that, once partner followed to the third heart, the 10 was a strange play. It would 'feel; more natural to play low and hope declarer rose Q - just in case hearts can somehow be 'separated'. If instead, partner had started with A72, the ...
Sorry. Another question about a bad claim.
John A: So you don't believe West who precisely described the play and had declarer, in the 6-card ending with 10 facing void, saying "dummy is good"?
