about me

I live in the mountains of western North Carolina (US) and work as a freelance editor of nonfiction. The latter was preceded by two lengthy stints as a systems engineer in the telecom industry. I have written and self-published several books and ebooks (one on bridge, the remainder on chess) and have recorded several digital audio tracks. I last played bridge in 2007.

Effective October 29, 2016, I will try to consistently use the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hen," which means "he or she" or "him or her," and the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hens," which means "his or her" or "his or hers."

Cater for as much as you can
I'm convinced. I was fixated on the defenders' having been dealt five spades, leading me to overlook that starting with the A ultimately eliminates a guess in trumps.
Cater for as much as you can
I agree that the K will likely be ducked if East holds the ace, being that West's signal could be factored in (although at least the "get information" part of my intent would be met). But if West held say, Axxx (in addition to the K and J suggested ...
Cater for as much as you can
I'm leading the K at Trick 2, to build an entry and get information. A defender takes the ace (likely West from the failure to lead a heart, but it probably doesn't matter) and continues clubs. I win in Dummy and run three diamonds (assuming 3-2, which seems ...
