about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

YBTJ: Wrong slam
I can't imagine opening anything but 2C (or a strong 1 club) with the north hand. I don't mind 3N. It eats up very little bidding room and shows a spade stopper. I wouldn't have hated pass. I don't think we should double with the ace ...
Can you defeat this game?
Do we play any Smith?
Conclusive Call
Hmmm You don’t play 1M 2C as GF clubs or balanced and 1M 2C 2D as diamonds or balanced? Saves a lot of auction space Not sure why east would need to split on the first small spade off of dummy Wouldn’t waiting until splitting on the second ...

Would a 20-30 minute spectator delay impact BBO events in any meaningful way?
At this point in time, I would kill for the sports that I follow to restart and be able to watch them in any fashion. I typically record day games that happen when I work and maintain "radio silence" aka avoid the internet to not find out the resul. Live ...
Would you open this hand?
Note- I was just bidding my hand. In most games, I'd be asking RHO if they wanted an undo. This is a clear misclick situation.
The beauty of a 3-3 fit
I love playing 3-3 fits in 2M (usually spades) My favorite is when I get heart ruffs in both hands.
Would you open this hand?
In fourth chair, the pass is already on the table. In any other seat I'm opening 1D or 3D
What is the best line in this 6!C contract
You're right - I forgot to specify MPs and whether to consider the possible overtrick. (I know I didn't find the winning play at the table :)
