about me

I'm a fourth year mathematics major at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.  I spend far too much time on BBO.  If I didn't play bridge I'd probably be much better at math :)

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is this the correct ruling?
I believe you're asking whether you should get another automatic free trick for the second revoke, in addition to the first. Law 64B "There is no automatic trick adjustment following an established revoke (but see Law 64C) if: (2) it is a subsequent revoke in the same suit by ...
Chris Miller's bidding problem: AK86 AK97 KQJ2 6
The ruling is correct but I see the confusion due to the poor wording of the law. Law 24B. If it is a single card of honor rank or is any card prematurely led, offender’s partner must pass when next it is his turn to call. The phrase "prematurely ...
Chris Miller's bidding problem: AK86 AK97 KQJ2 6
Is the knowledge that I know my partner is forced to pass at their first opportunity UI or AI to them?
Sean McNally's lead problem: 8632 J52 AK8 754
To my knowledge, "expert standard" (which I admit can be a condescending phrase) is to play Rusinow from 4 or more against NT (minus some exceptions), thus leaving the King for the unambiguous power lead, asking for unblock or count. However, since my partner and I are playing standard honor ...

Peg, thanks for always being so supportive and sweet :)
Deceiving question by declarer
At the last NABC I had two hands in the same session where I wanted to clarify whether they lead A from AK or K from AK. One I didn't have the other honor and one I did. (Yes, I asked the general "leads and carding, please" but they ...
Good luck to the 44 college pairs playing this weekend!
I strongly disagree. (1) Isn't this analogous to saying that those who had a poor first session and can't win, should not play in the second session of the same event since they "have no stake?" (2) I feel that to say such competitors "have no stake" is ...
Terrible Tempo
Peg, firstly I do wait ten seconds in that auction (oftentimes get some strange looks). Throughout the auction I maintain tempo by tapping my foot. I also wait ten seconds after the opps have a keycard auction and someone makes a skip bid to slam. I actually had an opponent ...
Terrible Tempo
I think there's another reason to always wait the full 10 seconds in the auction 1NT-3NT. You are protecting partner who may have a difficult lead decision, giving them some much needed time.
Eric Hendrickson's lead problem: 5 J6 KQJ9843 J97
The choice is clearly between a club or a heart. If partner is doubling with an Ace in each suit it doesn't matter so ignore that case. So only focus on when we have an AK or AK cashing. If partner is short in AK suit, I ...
