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.

Source of PBN/Deal Files + matchpoint results?
I'm aware of the what the ACBL is and their url, but I wasn't able to find any archives like what you mentioned. Can you point me at where on the site these archives are? Or are you just assuming that it must exist because the ...
Source of PBN/Deal Files + matchpoint results?
Yeah, this is a great resource and we've used it occasionally as well. Unfortunately, there's only so many of these before we run out :(
Source of PBN/Deal Files + matchpoint results?
Can you point me at these archives? I spent 15 minutes looking/googling and can't find them anywhere on the site.
Source of PBN/Deal Files + matchpoint results?
I own doop, but the hands come as paper slips as I recall. One of the nice things about a dealer file is we can quickly make 30-36 boards using a duplicating machine and play them. When I've played Doop, it takes a while for each person to make ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: Q8 AKT AKT865 Q4
What problems exactly? I didn't see this as a system issue, more of a priority issue in MPs: prioritize the NT/hiding information from defenders vs showing the diamond suit in case partner has a black suit weakness or shortness and diamond support.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: Q8 AKT AKT865 Q4
There are lots of forms of precision. I'm familiar with artificial step structures like what you describe, but this isn't one of them. 2NT is often a 4 card unbalanced raise in many sequences with a raise to 3 typically being a balanced 4 card raise for a ...

I have no clue what you just said :P
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: Q8 AKT AKT865 Q4
2 doesn't deny a 4 card major. Partner could bid 2 over 2 to show 4 hearts, 2 denies 4+ diamonds and is waiting, 2NT shows an unbalanced 4+ raise and 3 would be a balanced 4+ card raise. Over 1NT, front of card ...
Bridge Training Suggestions
Odds of 4-3 break are higher than the finesse working, once the J of spades falls isn't it correct percentage wise to give up on the finesse at imps and play for the 4-3 diamond break? Might be silly though if the opponents falsecarded from Jxx in spades with ...
Effective Training Suggestions?
I had some similar comments from others interested but sad about the lack of a response, so I created a new topic for everyone here:
