Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do you spend too much time playing bridge?
The answer to this question is like a sine function, at some time period it is a clear yes, at some it is a clear no. Currently I am on the clear no side of things.
Stefan Velja's bidding problem: A8 A9874 AK96 A5
Gut feeling says to pass - although have to put partner on some hand. If he chooses 5D over 3N, he is shapely with 5+D?, say singleton heart. If he actually has that and then queen of diamonds + a black king, 6D makes if everything brakes. Probably best answer is ...
Meaning of 1M (2M) 4m?
By default, if opponents bid a suit, then jump cue in his suit is splinter, other jump bids are natural `support
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Hi Jeff, which pairs are the ones you like to kibbitz the most when you are not playing? Your own teammates do not count, as that would be a bit of cheating... Also, do you have any fun stories from your junior days?
After bidding Stayman, what is 3D?
W.o. any agreements, would assume 5D 4M(Or other major) and GF looking to describe his hand.

Jacoby 2NT Responses
Showing full shape over Jacoby does not seem efficient - if you want to use full shape relays, id rather go with 1N/2C as the starting question, and keep 2N for different purpose, as in just invite/set major and trump and check if we have a slam due to ...
Why play a Big !C or Precision?
From what I have noticed - playing some strong club might be easier for beginner players, but as mentioned above, you can mostly get the advantages of strong club in a natural framework(Light openings, defined ranges and so on), although the partnership needs some disciple. Some examples of this is ...
What is this dbl 1!C-(Pass)-1!D-(1M)-dbl
In this situation and similar I believe opener's double is take out. Most of the time it overlaps with the support double, although partner does not neceserally need to have 3 card support, but he might have say 6 clubs - 4 OM 2 p suit - 1 singleton and extras ...
Can Google's DeepMind beat the BBO Robots in 2017
Agree with the part on motivation. After AlphaGo winning the match, im somewhat convinced that if the Deep Mind team would put in the same resources in bridge, they would achieve sucess, but the question, is why should they? Likely they have nothing to prove - the only ones who would ...
