about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

World Championship update
Bear in mind also that England have one undisputed record in these championships: the squad with the most members with the same first name. David Jones (npc of the Seniors), David Kendrick and David Muller (players in the Seniors), David Gold and David Burn (captain and coach of the Women ...
A diffferent kind of play problem
Possibly. But the chance that declarer would score a ridiculous diamond trick might outweigh that consideration, especially if (for example) West's lead of a low diamond were attitude rather than count and the diamond was very low. And I have no real idea what you mean by "a blueprint ...
Bermuda bowl 1/4 finals
Madala was unable to play for Italy in the first few days of the tournament because he was very unwell. With all due respect to the rest of the Italian team, this meant they were a weaker force than expected during that phase.
A diffferent kind of play problem

A diffferent kind of play problem
They will duck it only half of the time at most.
May the force be with you
Partner jumped to 3NT over 2, vulnerable against not. There's messing around and there's hara kiri.
May the force be with you
0) Would have overcalled 3 1) If we have bid at least as constructively as they have, and have bid 3NT to play, pass is forcing and invites 4NT. 2) Double. North doesn't have enough to invite 4NT. 3) Pass if North doubled. Double if North misguidedly passed.
Tanking to get a read
Why indeed? After all, I cannot vouch for the truth of my anecdote.
Tanking to get a read
Sure, if p is false then “p implies q” is true whether q is true or false. But from that it does not follow that q is true.
