about me

obsessed with ethics, the today's fashion of unethical play has caused me many times to stop playing

How light are preempts these days? CLUB GAME PABC MATCHPOINT SCORING
Other: I consider myself an unpredictable preempter and I might open this 2 or not. I'd tend to open. The suit is bad but not terrible (give me the 10 and I always open it). The fit is quite good, but the fit is not, so ...
Hugh Hughes's bidding problem: xxxx xxx xxx xxx
I need a sure trick to bid on. While it's very probable that partner is solid outside of trumps and needs 2 trump covers for the grand, 4 small are not good enough, partner may be missing AK of trumps.
Steve Rogers's bidding problem: K974 QJ2 A97 Q64
When I picked my cards, I realized that I want to play NT. They offered to play it for me, and what's more, 1)we have the lead 2)the right hand is on lead 3)I like everything that partner wants to lead. When you are offered a ...
What is Normal?
Always claim. Also, always claim right : there is absolutely no reason while claiming not to point a finger on the right ace, or say "play the trump" or anything equivalent. I am a known claimer for some 35 years and I have NEVER claimed like this, even among friends. To ...
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: QT743 6 KQJ2 Q76
If I bid with this, it is just possible that partner may make the mistake to think that I actually have something.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 732 7 JT62 QJ985
Partner will usually have exactly 5 here (if partner had a 6 card GOOD suit since he's strong he would have bid 4 instead of x but there is a possibility of a not so good 6 card suit) and very probably a minor, unless he's ...
Mark Jones's bidding problem: KQ8765 A9 KQ974 ---
Your problem has a problem.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: K53 QJ543 AK A96
I have good reason to hope we'll make this.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: QT Q85 AK9842 QJ
I'm closer to pass than to 1NT.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: A65 AT3 J7 T8543
This is a very good hand. My reasonable expectation is 11 tricks. However, I am not absolutely sure we do have 11, and 12 is not really very likely*. I think pass is obvious, if for nothing else at least for my worst possible length. *It's possible that ...
