about me

Started playing duplicate in 1976 but on a once a week basis since there were other activities that I was also interested in. Retired from work in July 2018 which left much more time for playing bridge.

Steve Myerson's bidding problem: K32 --- QT965 AJ874
[b]At the table[/b] This bidding problem was given to me by a friend. I did not play it. West held Q8, AT743, AK87, Q9. I said that I would open the east hand. A majority of the BW voters disagree with that evaluation. Opening ...
What do you call an 8 card suit?
We don't play namyats. In fact, I don't play it with any partners. It wasn't a novice game, just an open club game.

Do EW play puppet or Smolen? What did their CC have marked?
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: KJ763 AJ873 9 75
Playing split range Michaels, this hand qualifies as a weak vulnerable Michaels bid.
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: KT643 A32 KT6 98
If your agreement is that a natural suit bid guarantees 2 of the top 3 honors in a 5+ suit (the way I play), then 2 waiting is forced. If you don't have that agreement, then 2 showing a decent 5 card suit is ok. My vote ...
Trevor Morris's bidding problem: x KTxxx Jxx Axxx
I'm not a fan of bringing back +170 for the comparison.
Was this the correct ruling?
To address Ed's comment, no I did not call the director. I told NS that there was a failure to alert and if they felt damaged, to call the director. North did call the director, who made the ruling that there was no damage. In my experience, whenever I ...
Should a 2/1 by advancer be one round forcing?
Usually I play whatever partner is comfortable with. There are a few exceptions and this is one of them. New suit by an unpassed hand is forcing.
