about me

Often delusional about how good I am at this game, but I make enough wild errors to puncture my inflated ego on a regular basis.

Making 6HX-6 for -1400 at a Year End Congress. My partner was declaring, but it was very much me who got us there.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Yet another "Is pass forcing"?
It's bbo speedball - pass is always forcing.
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Hum, you're certainly right in principle - the EBU's alerting regulations considers takeout there the default meaning. Apologies for the sass! Nonetheless, it's obviously the defence E is playing. W can at least be hoped to be playing the same defence, and the benefit of the doubt is ...
Assign the passing blames
It'd be deeply unlucky to face a jump to 2NT on the auction so far.
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Double of an artificial bid showing the suit? Doesn't seem controversial to me Michael.
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Allegedly the hand is this one: http://db.worldbridge.org/repository/tourn/suzhou.18/microsite/Asp/BoardAcross.asp?qboard=004.16..1533 In which case W's 5-card support also comes with a singleton in S's second suit. 3 seems like the least he could do. I'd ...
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Strong club, multi 2 overcall, 2 pass or correct, double showing a spade suit, 3 showing hearts and clubs, 3... eh, could be anything tbh, 3 natural. Ignore the cards, the shapes are accurate.
Stuff about appeals that some people may find boring
Could be a clearer article, Michael. But it looks like your partner made a bid which you knew was artificial, and where you were fairly confident of the meaning, and you failed to alert. Your screenmate believed your description of the bid as one that's unambiguously agreed as natural ...
Any Way To Tell?
Oh I suppose it also matters how much p likes to support on three cards. If he's someone who would definitely support first time around with this sort of hand, I'm obviously less likely to go for it.
Any Way To Tell?
I'm going to go with... maybe? It looks like in this partnership there's a wide range of holdings available for 3 - whether I want to be in 5 opposite the weakest of them depends on how weak they're going to be. Is 3 going ...
Any Way To Tell?
I'm not a habitual supporter on 3 cards without shortage, but there's no doubt it's an option. 4 rather than 3 seems like a vaguely normal bid. But over 3, what do people think of 5? Good idea? Not? I think it's ...
