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."

Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Jxxx Axx T9 KQ9x
"I don't think slam is that great opposite that hand." if D are not 5-1 , you make it trump 32, when you pick up a singleton Q or T. I also think opener hand can be bit better.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Jxxx Axx T9 KQ9x
It was just bidding practice but partner hand was AK9x xx AKxxx Ax wich isnt that strong but is super rich in control wich in my mind is the key. I passed but Q was singleton and were 3-3 so we would have made 7. Droping the Q from ...
Competitive situation?
In the weaker section X as penalties got merit (but they often play 2Y as forcing). Vs stronger players X as responsive is better, you often have 4/4 or 4/5 in the unbid suit here.
Eric Dong's bidding problem: QT97542 AK76 --- J6
If you make a michael with 55?? with a wide range when you bid later you tend to show 64. Even if you have 7 you need to be worried abotu partner having Qxxxx and singleton . Where you could make 2 more trick in than in ...
Agreement over (1!S) - 2!H - (2!S) - ?
If you play scrambling leb you can play 3H is inv and 2NT--followed by 3H is comp. However opps may raise before you show your fit but if your jsut competitive it doesnt matter that much. If you play xfer leb 3D is good raise and 3H is weaker ...
A difficult ruling?
Maybe doubling 5 is a mistake maybe passing 5x is a mistake but they are not extremely serious error.
Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: 653 QJ92 AKQ KQ2
Why mastermind once when you can mastermind twice instead ? I like 3Nt but I guess 2D hoping to get a lead or that 3Nt is better than 4 is dubious but not crazy.
Johnson Zhu's bidding problem: Kx JTxxxx xxx xx
In Jyri hand the auction start with 2.

"2♣ 2♠ pas PASS"
Johnson Zhu's bidding problem: Kx JTxxxx xxx xx
No i mean i would pass 2S. If you want to sac because you feel the sac is going to be really cheap its better if they reach their optimum contract and than you sac. Bidding 4S only make their bidding more difficult so more unreliable. If you pass 2S ...
