about me

Player for 40 years. Work and other interests (golf, tennis, poker, and recently pickleball) have curtailed my play, and I wish I had the chance to play more. I do teach 'intermediate' bridge regularly. It might be apt to describe myself as more 'student of the game'. One immutable fact about bridge I have learned - bridge teaches about life.

Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: K52 QT4 J96 QT87
There is nothing to think about. Pass.

"Agricultural" ? :)
David Sackett's bidding problem: K3 K9652 7 AKT72
Sometimes one just has to take the cash. Opposite Q10xx and worse, we may have no play.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 54 AKJ98 A732 Q6
I'm not feeling lucky at present.
Larry Sealy's bidding problem: QT983 83 AJ987 9
2 if playing 'top and bottom' (yes, I prefer this to Michaels). Otherwise 1. Way too much potential opposite a fit to pass up the opportunity.

West's Double of 3? 'Inopportune' at best, 'silly' at worst. West doesn't care which minor East has and should just start bidding them. West's final Pass? Probably based on a lack of understanding of what was going on. East's Double cannot be pure penalty, it ...
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: AKT54 K2 Q942 42
3 seems a reasonable shot.
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
From a competitive point of view I think most would agree, GN. There is the elephant in the room of ACBL's lost revenue from members who quit playing (not to mention lost revenue for club managers). Perhaps not that many would quit and fears of the ACBL are overblown ...
