about me

USBF Junior mentor (having a great time with a half-dozen [now 8] very eager youngsters from 12-16).  Nearly made the top 500 in 2017, planning a stronger effort in 2019.

Occasionally play on BBO against Cayne and his pros, or Richard Pavlicek and partner.  I enjoy the opportunity to play against that caliber of players.  Win occasionally, too.

1NT or 1C
Yes, definitely a triumph for T-Walsh.
What does a hesitation suggest here?
Yes
Plan your play.
I suppose it depends on the speed of the lead. I am not sure that W rates to be anywhere near that strong to overcall a strong 1 opening. Since ducking in both hands is death when W was dealt Kx xx KJ10 KJxxxx, I don't think there ...
What does a hesitation suggest here?
I suspect that partner is stronger than an absolute signoff but not strong enough to force to game. He may also have an aberrant pattern. Were I the director, I would forbid S from biding any game.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Jx xx Jxx AKT9xx
Yes, I would have bid 3NT directly, but it seems that I have hit the jackpot with 3. Double clearly shows maximal defense, what could I have but this?
Cute Card Combination
How can you endplay West on the 2nd hand when he still has a spade?
Plan your play.
Is this MP or IMPs? If W has stiff J, you are losing 2 tricks whatever you do; ruffs are irrelevant. If W has J8 or J10 doubleton, you are losing one trick whatever you do, and there are no ruffs out. If W has J108, ducking in dummy ...
