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."


Bridge Information

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.
Favorite Conventions
transfers all the way baby
BBO Username
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Rosenkranz type redouble
2S and clubs or 2S and extra values. Yuor inviting partner to bid 2S with 6 or to X opponent 2red with clubs.
Last train simplified
Take for example the splinter auction like 1S--4C 4D--?? if you play pure last train 4H is showing extras may or may not have a control and 4S is showing a minimum may or may not have a control. All that you know is that with a lot ...
Last train simplified
I know, but its confusing to see it that way and lead to a lot of may or may not play bridge situations. If you don't play 3Nt serious or non serious or if you cant untagle the cuebid situation because of competitive bidding or if you have cuebids ...
Last train simplified
last diagram should be a 2/1 not a Drury, ive done some others edit too.
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: KQ9xx xx Axx Axx
Good example to show why ambiguous last train is lame. Our hand tell us that its near impossible responder doesnt have a control and our hand is gold, yet most players (83% as a write this) pass thinking either a control is lacking or that 3keyc+Q isnt ...
3NT is clearcut, lets just say that instead of 3Nt I bid 4S than its a terrible blunder, but instead making a serious cue its only a rose colored glasses overbid, so that give the hand around 7-8. You need to add a full Q to be in serious slam ...
John Adams's bidding problem: AKJ8 K6 Q94 AJ54
So even if this hand is 3 WTP for you, the discussion is far from being a WTP discussion.
John Adams's bidding problem: AKJ8 K6 Q94 AJ54
Its not only that particular hand (where maybe underbidding with 3C is not too costly), you need methods that apply in other similar situation. (1H)--X--(P)--1S (2D)--? sometimes your going to bid 2S competitive with not a lot of extras but no desire for game and sometimes you ...
Philly Slam Poll 3 of 3: Responses to Queen Ask
Couple of related things. I prefer that the 5H is no Q & 5S is Q and no kings/no extras. Sometimes you have an extra trump and you would like to show the Q since your side got 9 or 10 trumps however you dont want partner to bid 7 ...
Philly Slam Poll 1 of 3: ATB missed 6!S
Agree 100% North hand is just much stronger than many 22 bal. Sometimes its better to open 1H with a hand good enouhg for 2 if you think the auction will go smooth if responder doesnt pass but here its not the case. Even if it goes 1H-1NT-2S you ...
