about me

Having my bid, putting down a good dummy, making partner's life easy, getting a plus score. Not that concerned about going +170.

None, and especially dislike any that get in the way of being able to penalty double the opponents.

Eric Leong's bidding problem: Q976 QJ86 9 AJ43
I think it depends on the style of the 2D overcall.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: QT43 3 AJT7 8432
Ive changed my answer to pass, but I think its pretty difficult to calculate these sort of BAM decisions. The main issue with doubling is - we are assuming our team mates are getting a negative score. If our team mates are getting a positive score, doubling is only a bad ...
Taking Advantage of UI?
west is being strikingly inconsistent. He is saying that his bid is 2 places to play, but then forcing a heart contract. He obviously has changed his mind and something has compelled him to do the weird bid of 5H. Also why not 5D? - if 4NT was consistent with 2 ...
Restricted choice?
Yea what you're saying definitely has its merits. I'm just not sure if worrying about diamond texture should come into it at that stage, because in several other ways 1NT does a lot of good for your side. Also partner could have a whole range of diamond holdings ...
Restricted choice?
I think this isn't a case of just working out "what is the probability of a (443)2". Because, divide the chance of a 4432 by 6, to get a (443)QJ. However, being fairly sure that east doesn't have 5 diamonds probably makes a big difference, as ...
Upside upside down
I think the 8 is clearly correct but even if it wasn't, it is often too impractical and exhausting to figure out obscure carding exceptions and will probably be at the cost of some tempo which is a big concession. Lately, when the correct card to play (due to ...
Play 1NT
Okay. Its probably far fetched to draw too much out of tempo on such a hand, also because the guys at your table are conscious of tempo and will not give away too much. I guess my point is that if it was in simple tempo, LHO might be more ...
Play 1NT
What was the tempo of the opening lead? Basic plan is to set up 1+ trick in clubs (or possibly diamonds if they play them), and then take an informed view on spades (if necessary, might have 5 tricks outside of spades and not need a 3rd in spades). The ...
Phil Markey's bidding problem: K2 T8752 AKQJ2 7
5 redoubled is 800, 5 undoubled is 400. Both easily possible outcomes. 5 doubled 2 off is 300, 5 undoubled 2 off is 100. I'm not anxious about rolling the dice here, let them have it. Partner is bidding a lot of the time over ...
Xavier Truel's bidding problem: 7643 K5 T762 A97
So is a reasonable guess for partner's hand 2-3 spades, 4ish hearts, unbalanced, longest suit is clubs, probably not 2425 or else maybe would've opened 1NT? Is this a candidate hand? AK QJxx x KQJxxx If so I think I would like to raise in clubs, maybe 2H ...
