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).

Country
United States of America

+1 Westy's! I haven't been there, but my brother went at the last NABC and highly recommends it as a post-midnights spot :)
Liam Milne's bidding problem: K A974 JT8653 A9
I’m assuming double is negative!
Anant Rathi's lead problem: 8xx Txxx AJx QJx
This poll was a sanity check. I led Q. Dummy was AQ AKQxxx Kx xxx Partner had KJ-5th or -6th (can't remember) and K10x. Declarer had J and Q. So a spade was the only lead to beat it.
Nicholas France's bidding problem: 9 T62 AQ85 AKQ84
Pass, and if it goes (1)-P-(1N) or (1)-P-(2), I will double
Mikael Rimstedt's lead problem: Q73 K82 65 KQ864
I don’t think the singleton is relevant.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: QT87 5 J AKJ9872
I don’t see why you hate that, nor did I think your joke was derogatory. It was just funny. I laughed out loud
ATB +200
I definitely think North should start with 2 Michaels, planning to cuebid (again) next to show a strong hand with minimal shape (in context). If it goes e.g. (1) 2 - 2 - 3 - 3 - ? I'd guess to still bid game, but it's ...
Anant Rathi's lead problem: 8xx Txxx AJx QJx
No, sorry maybe I should have been clearer. "Rusinow from length" = "Rusinow from a 4-card or longer suit"
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 53 A63 98742 T83
I do not agree with partner's double. Partner should reason that, if Responder has a classic hand for the bid (5+), East has failed to take a call over 1 with spade shortness, which means the hand probably does not belong to our side.

What would you do at IMPs Michael? :P
