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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Accept the Transfer
Agree with Steve, I would play high-high to show A/K but would do high--low with Q and no club card.
ATB missed !s game
I like to play that 2D followed by 2S show 15-17 could be 6?3? if the are not good enough for a 3S rebid. But I doubt that what opener play.
ATB missed !s game
many open 1Nt with those hand but for me 2D could be 6?3?, but after 4H opener look to have a singleton . With 6133 he would rebid 2 rather than 2 so its almost a sure thing that opener got 10 cards in the pointed suits.
ATB missed !s game
I think south should make a false preference with 2 sure cover but I guess passing 2D isnt a bad mistake, when he doesnt make the false pref hes going to have crappy hand or 5 and not good enough to raise to 3D, so either way north should ...
Thrump double vs, FP in a GF auction
Pass double inversion allow you to have 2 ways to bid 3nt pass= penalty or half a stop or not usual bid. Opener is expected to X unless hes got a hand that would pull a pen double. X= dsip, allow opener to convert, bid 3Nt with a stop or ...
Another Game Won by Alpha
"The computational horizon tends to be much closer with hidden information" Go is extremely complex so the computationnal horizon come very quickly. IMO hidden information is mostly in favor of the computer not the otherway around, for example backgammon is the toughest to compute depth brute force because of dice ...
Another Game Won by Alpha
"This differs from their previous wins at the game Go, as it is a game with lots of hidden information." Its counter intuitive but there is no difference between a game that is far beyond the computationnal horizon and a hidden information game. A clockwork universe where you can get ...
1!D - P - 1!H - 4!S - ?
4- I prefer 5H direct to be slammish and a delayed 5H to be "competitive" mostly because its how we play it when its scrambling. 5- slightly prefer pass but its very close. Agree with the rest.
ATB playing 5m down when 3NT is much better
I dont like east 3H and dont like west 4. Depending on methods its possible than when west doesnt raise at r1 slam is unlikely so maybe east should mostly think best game not slam. If it goes 1D-2D (inv minors where responder deny a 4M) because you ...
1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced
You need to alert because you can open 1D and rebid 1Nt with 4423 or even 4324.
