Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Winning european Juniors pairs championship (long, long time ago!)
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Up the Ante
Page 2: even if he doesn't have club support, since a follow-up 2♥ call would not show extra strength. I suppose "diamond support" is meant. Very interesting analysis, thanks!

CHO Strikes Again
Center Hand Opponent (nice description for many partners)
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: 986 KT42 A432 86
I see it positive - partner has pushed them to the 5-level with his unexpected bid. If they go down, then they go down more often than 4H - if they win, I get an average. Doubling risks 50% to gain 10% (90 instead of 80) - bad odds. If partners bids AGAIN ...
What's Your Line
Q, three rounds of hopefully, if they split 4-2, J. If covered, trying to run spades, finally clubs and deciding about diamonds depending on who has the long majors (could be a double squeeze if East holds hearts and West spades)
Can you avoid -200?
I think they got enough information from the bidding :-)
Weirdest Bid
Just had a similar experience two days ago: 1 by partner, x to my right, xx by me; 1 left, x by partner, 2(!) to my right. Pass, Pass, x again - now 3(!!) to my right. This finally went for +300 with no game for us ...
Bridge in fiction
In "The light fantastic" by Terry Pratchett DEATH himself learns to play bridge - with the Apocalyptic Riders as his companions. Highly enjoyable - as all of Sir Terry's fiction, may he rest in peace!
How do you play this 6!S contract?
Bidding and lead makes me feel like this: winning spade in hand, heart finesse, heart ruff, spade to dummy (supposing 3-1), heart ruff (hoping for 4-2 hearts), hearts and spades, diamond finesse. This way, even an overtrick is possible if east is 1255 with both diamond king and ace of ...
2/1 vs. Precision
I think the strength of the 1C-opening (saving space) and the limited opening bids outweigh the disadvantages of the Precision 2C opening bid, where we have to do some guesswork (because of limited space)...
