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

What are your pet peeves?
Well we've ascertained Ed's pet peeve
What are your pet peeves?
Allan I have no sympathy whatsoever for your #2. My pet peeve is people who turn the board before I've finished scoring.
There exist opps of that kind
There is a 3rd reason: we don't know what to do after winning.
Louis Glasthal's bidding problem: xx ATxxx KQJTx x
if partner bids 4, I'll try 4.
Anant Rathi's lead problem: J87x AJT32 T8 7x
With partner's Qx onside, declarer has 9 runners on any lead but a low (or Ace). Dummy's hearts are 9xxx and declarer has singleton Q. I led 10 at the table
William Kochneff's bidding problem: 2 A5 T9643 AK842
Even if we'd agreed 3 is forcing, I'd bid it.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T7 --- AKQJT86532 9
"those of us infected with the 2/1 virus seem to hate jumping for any reason" You obviously haven't met any sad souls infected with the Fast Arrival virus :P
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: T8732 J9 K7 AKQ3
Surely either-or isn’t a vaible treatment of 4. I think it should be natural because you have way (4) to raise diamonds, but if 4 is a cue then you’re stuck with strong 5-5 hands.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 74 K6 KT873 KT53
Might as well drop the agreement if not employing it here.
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: A984 K52 K AKT83
