about me

American expat in Switzerland. Some top-10 finishes in NABC events. Now playing in the top division of both Swiss and German leagues. Developed some unusual treatments and systems (Meyerson, Zirconia, IMPrecision). Might be a better bridge player if I didn't work full time as a software engineer.

Should bridge authorities be able to tell us what we can bid?
To make this a bit more general, suppose the local regulatory organization has decided that a certain agreement is not permitted. We may quibble over whether such decision is good or bad, but it seems clear from the laws that regulatory organizations do have the power to make such decisions ...
Should bridge authorities be able to tell us what we can bid?
I think this is the only practical solution to an otherwise unsolvable problem. When people make "psychic" openings with strong hands, it's usually an indication that they have an undisclosed agreement. But it's hard to prove this without thorough record-keeping of all hands. So we basically have to ...
New Suit After Transfer Over 2NT Rebid
Clubs is a suit. Diamonds would be a slam try in hearts though. Some sequences here: 1-1-2NT ...3-3-3NT: 5-332 choice of games (cancels the diamonds meaning) ...3-3-3: 5+/5+ diamonds and hearts (and GF) ...3-3-3/4: cue for ...
Which is More Common
Basically, a 5+/4+ two suiter with two specific suits (but where either could be longer) is about 1.5x as frequent as a 6+ one suiter with one specific suit. (dburn got the same, but with greater precision) If you allow either of two 6+ one suiters, the one ...
Lead Problem. Are Simulations Believable?
Of course this doesn't prove anything -- it will all depend on the actual numbers. The idea is just that: 1. The defense "gets complicated" more often after a passive lead than an active one. 2. Double dummy assumes you do the right thing every time the defense is "complicated ...
Lead Problem. Are Simulations Believable?
It seems like Rainer has answered his own question. The active lead frequently either sets the contract or allows it to make, whereas the passive lead often creates decisions later on the defense. To give completely contrived numbers: Say the active lead sets the contract 50% of the time and ...
Lead Problem. Are Simulations Believable?
This came up for me in a US nationals (Blue Ribbon Pairs, I think), when my partner declared 6. After a great deal of thought, opponent lead a diamond that was clearly either singleton or doubleton. His partner won the ace and switched to another suit, correctly playing the ...
System Design Question - Mixing Response Ranges - Strong Pass/!C methods
I've played a system for a while where 1-1 is either 0-4 (any) or GF (usually balanced). This seems to work quite well; if 4th hand intervenes the balanced responder can always come back in (usually with a double). Your method seems somewhat worse if 4th hand ...
“No True Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
Some of these things are different between countries too. In the US we were among the few expert pairs playing non-GF 2/1 bids, but in Switzerland (and France for that matter) it's quite common. Similarly in the US there are virtually no expert pairs playing four-card majors in ...
How do you play this bidding sequence.
Natural game force for me. Could be slam interest or just looking for the best game with only four spades.
