about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened.

Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: xx KJTxx Axx JTx
I bid 3D, which is clearly a game try. I think 3C is an objectively better game try but I don’t want to give partner the chance to do something really silly. Whether this is a game try at all is pretty close too, but vulnerable at IMPs and ...
Develop Tricks
Well, it took me like 10 seconds so hopefully not!

Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: J52 853 T94 AQ98
I might roll the dice with a pass at MPs, but it’s suicide at IMPs.
Second trick decision 3
If somehow the DQ fell out of my hand at trick one and it held... I mean, come on.

Nit alert: end page 4 presumably East plays D8, not North. (Rotated deal?)
