about me

Can you identify my Avatar?  I'm the best bridge player in Chicago for about three hands a month.  The rest of the time, I just swim along with the other fish.

Robert Lass's bidding problem: JT876 Q Q843 AJ2
This is the companion hand to yesterdays problem.
Robert Lass's bidding problem: AK8 A9865 2 KQ93

Howard Engle's bidding problem: --- KQT4 AKJ876 QJ6
Can partner have 4 spades?
Where is the Nickell team in USBF playoffs?
Get to? Anytime she wants. Have to? Never in this life or the next.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 963 K8762 Q7 J53
Double or 4 spades. What else is there. Over a double, N will likely pull to 4 spades which we will let them play. They'll take the same 12 tricks as they would have in NT. Over 4 spades, let them find spades! I'm hoping the end up ...
