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."

Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: A AKJ73 A86 JT63
Agree once we learn that opener got K he wont be 4135 anymore.
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring

Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Qxxxx A9xxx ATx ---

Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Qxxxx A9xxx ATx ---
responder bid 4 and opener had A KQxxx J9xx KQx and bid only 4. I have no idea if they play 4 as a last train. Ive polled mostly because I wasnt sure if responder hand is good enough for 5 splinter. IMO its hard enough ...
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: 8x Axx J9x QTxxx
With 4H and 4m opener will pick 2Nt not 3. Ending in 3H is less likely than you think.

Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: QT652 J9 AJ62 T9
3 is 8-11 so its wide-raging (lim+construct) I guess 3 would ask to specify the range
How frequent/useful is 1M--3m (nat inv) ? Im looking for hands where responder got INV and a long minor.
thanks !
