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. 

 

Now we don't play much.

The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Against opponents who are begging to be exploited, it would be a criminal offense to not exploit them.
Weak raise of Doubled Major Alertable?
A lot of people seem to be answering a different question (namely: should this raise be alertable) than the actual question posed (namely: is it?).

"I enjoyed looking at the score after every board on the first round and saying "that's ok, it's 50/50" Guilty.
Weak raise of Doubled Major Alertable?
IMO (and this is without consulting the charts or books, so this opinion is probably worthless) it depends how weak. If the lower end is "someone not playing these methods might plausibly raise to 2H with this hand with its usual meaning" then no; if it's "I've seen ...
Scrambling after a Redouble.
Same way.

Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: T87543 AKQx Qx x
I'm pretty happy with a splinter. A partner with aces will be able to keycard for hearts; a partner without aces will have some stuff wasted in clubs and won't be interested.
