about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

United States of America

Scare Him
"Ducking could be bad if declarer has the stiff queen of clubs...On this hand East was wrong to rise ace of clubs, but it was a very reasonable defense." I hesitate to disagree with an analyst like Kit, but in this instance... Every lie of the club suit is ...
Opener's Rebid After a Negative Double
The "cheapest lie" commenters have hinted at bidding 2 in preference to 2 regardless of which it is you opened. That's what I would do. When 2 is available: - If I had opened 1, tend to choose 2 over 2 - If I had ...
Weishu Wu's bidding problem: AKQ 765 JT63 JT9
I wiuld also lead a spade, the Queen if playing that King is for unblock
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: x Kxx JTxxx AKQx
3 should, I think, be natural showing this pattern (or 0364). Partner can assume that either: a) We are interested in 3N but worried about hearts (x Kxx AKJxx Jxxx perhaps) b) We are interested in clubs but worried about strength. In this case it's (b), but partner ...
Ron Smith's bidding problem: Q9xxxx Jxx xxx T
As logical as it is to bid 3 with this hand type, the fact remains that if partner has a minimum 3145 or 4234, 3 is going down. I think that's significantly more likely than missing game after 2
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: T4 AQJ QJ5 AK853
Phil what in the world do you mean by "cagier" ??
A hand that plays TWO tricks better from one side
Very cool! West leads a diamond, then at Trick 2 or 3 shifts to a spade. In due course, the North hand is tapped out and East will eventually score a low trump, so that the defense gets 1+2+2+1; 7 tricks to declarer ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: 43 982 KQ85 AK32
No reverse flannery
ATB: misdefense of 5!S
I agree with this. Although East can (should) work it out, West should be throwing his remaining 2 hearts up-the-line
Just When I Thought I Was Out, They Pull Me Back In - Part III
Well if they're *always* falsecarding, that's just as good no? :D
