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."

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first time Ive really understood how complex the bidding phase can be, at that point it was clear to me that bridge was going to be a great game.

How would you rule?
"The difference is an action that is right 80+% of the time will always be taken by good players and so there may not be any logical alternatives as per the laws. That does not mean you have not benefited from the UI." Its not a precise way to see ...
How would you rule?
doesnt matter, if west can bid 4 isntead of doubling he could find pass instead of doubling.
ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
West has 6ctrl. Its ok to play 1m-3Nt as as strong NT but the hand should have a fair amount of soft values not prime values. Jumping to 3NT with Axx in a side suit facing a opening that is not precise is IMO always wrong. If opener got the ...

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Thanks, did he say this because he was annoyed at the long hesitation or just angry at himself ? What did the committed ruled about the comment is it AI or is the UI the more more important factor since it was before the comment ? Its hard to make a sensible ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Here are the mistakes I see in this board 1- playing flannery (I couldnt resist) 2- bidding 7NT 3- hesitating after 7NT 4- Not doubling 7Nt especially after a long hesitation 5- commenting before the lead (Im not sure what was said exactly) 6- not calling the director before leading ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Im not totally convinced by the arguments that 4 followed by 4Nt instead of 4Nt directly or 4-4Nt but by not bidding a later 5Nt automatically implies a void. cuebidding 4 with a singleton A is also normal and when north X for the lead your hand ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I want to add that as opening leader I would always call the director before dummy come down if my LHO make a comment like this. North know that his lead could be seen as using UI, so if he think east comment allow him to clear the UI because ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
"your LHO tells you he might have had a serious accident and his partner might not have the diamond ace which he (LHO) most certainly does not." The comment part is not clear to me. Nobody confirmed exactly what was said and when it was said. If my LHO make ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
"The auction to 7S is an extremely powerful statement that we have 13 tricks." Disagree. Ive seen players purposely lying about the trump queen a couple of times in the last years and it worked more often than not. If east got AJTxxx of trumps and extra values its not ...
