about me

I've enjoyed playing cards since I was a kid and Bridge is the ultimate card game. I played heavily in 2006-2009 while going to college and then disappeared for a while when the limited vacation days made it hard to go to tournaments. I have a bit more free time recently and have been getting back into it again, what a great game!


For day job stuff I build custom native mobile apps for Android and iOS and my main other consistent interest has been hiking. I'd like to get into backpacking although I haven't done it yet. Other interests over the years have been Magic the Gathering, Gardening, Go, Eve Online, and tabletop games like Terra Mystica.

Hi all, I found a partner for both events. Look forward to seeing everyone in Toronto!
The problem is bigger than the Stop Card
Removing comment to ponder how to say this better
Yet another, "What is the best treatment for DBL in this sequence?"
Who said anything about spades being "our suit" ? If I have spades I can bid them. If I want to express doubt about 3, I have a bid for that: X marks the spot.

Peg - it seems like there are issues unrelated to KOs etc with that regional. Last year the D14 regional around this time had 500 tables. Is it even worth running at that point? Should it be moved to a time? Place? Should something be done differently to attract people? 10 ...
Requesting a higher bracket
Would be interesting if they bracketed based on power rating instead of based on total points. While the power rating isn't perfect, its a heck of a lot better than total masterpoints.
Requesting a higher bracket
The Seattle KO sectional does a 4 session "Open" KO alongside a 3 session bracketed KO. Last year the directors tried to drop a low pointed team into the bracketed because they had ~4k points total as a team but the 4k team didn't want to play bracketed so ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: --- J932 Q97632 J65
What sort of hand would X over the 3 bid as opposed to bid or pass?
nevermind, OP updated clarifies my confusion
Do YOU play any of the "Worst Conventions?"
So I theoretically play Gerber with a variety of partners, but haven't actually had Gerber come up since like 2007 (with a break from 2009-20016). Should I be answering Gerber to the poll? or abstaining? And why isn't "none of these" one of the options? :P

Yes, pass is forcing. As far as pass then pull, that's undiscussed but strong would seem intuitive.
