about me

Love all games, I really mean all of them, go,shogi,poker,french tarot, wargames, computer games etc

"I mean, Gus and I never see eye-to-eye on work stuff.For instance, he doesn't like being used as a human shield when we're being shot at.I happen to think it's a very noble way to meet one's maker, especially for a guy like him.Bottom line is we never let that difference of opinion interfere with anything."

Garbage Stayman or Invitational
INV is imo best (with or without 4S, french style) Crawling stayman where I expected opener to correct to 2S unless he is 23?? or 3352. is 2nd best ** To play is imo poor. ** This make opener being declarer more often. Also when he correct to 2S hes showing at ...
Negotiated Settlement
"A card is played from dummy when declarer names the card." Any director will tell you that the most common scenario is that you arrive at the table and the players don't agree about what is being said or what has been done. (perhaps) makes a gesture South was ...
Adam Meyerson's bidding problem: K4 Q6 AKJ7 J7652
Very tough, 6 might be there but its going to be a guess more than anything, even if im favorite to make 5m I think that getting a mix of +300+500 & +800 (-800 is more likely than -300 IMO) will compensate for the mix of +600-100.
Is playing the same boards in a pairs event important?
The strait number of MP is a pretty good indicator of fairness (fairness defined as = higher odd that the results match the skills of the players) so often just playing 27 boards create more fairness than 24 boards movements, even if not everyone play the same boards. 30 boards = 3boards ...
Negotiated Settlement
"it doenst matter" on a bridge table is often used as a way to mean that even if it work you have a terrible score anyway like 2S+4 instead of 2S+3 or that its not enough to change the outcome of the KO. But for me this miss ...
Negotiated Settlement
Agree 100%, for me "it doenst matter" doesnt equal "play anything" especially with AQ on dummy. However its a fishing expedition and it deserve to get punished.
Negotiated Settlement
NS+EW scores on this board must add up to be below 100% otherwise its a kindergarden ruling.
Negotiated Settlement
"East thought South was playing the queen" Lol You need to warn declarer not to make any comments or moves hoping to get a tell from the opponents, even in poker there is many "angle shooting" moves that are binding you to an action. If the players don't know ...
Upside down signal from H(H)T9
Even without discussion the T is an honnor so basic honnor rules apply. There is no cases where discarding an honnor show a weaker holding than discarding the card under. In UDCA the 9 is the most discouraging spot the T show a sequence denying the J.
Upside down signal from H(H)T9
With T98x(x), HT98 HT9 its normal to play the T, with T98 if you think the suit got no future just play the 9.
