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.

Online Bridge Ruling, Psychic or Fail to Alert
Did north even have XX available? Without knowing that, other people redoubling in a poll seems fairly irrelevant.
What’s the Point of Keep Bridge Alive?
I love playing bridge, but its definitely not good for #3 and #4. The cookie counter is always there and its a sedentary activity, even sitting EW.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: 2 JT942 AT3 QJ54
Bah, just noticed I marked this as a KO. It should say matchpoints.
ATB missed slam
Which is why east should probably be the one keycarding, as in my auction. I hate keycarding as the hand with all keycards and no filler - hard to know what to do.
ATB missed slam
I picked West 100% because the bids were pretty terrible. But if it were an option I'd pick system 50%, West 100%, East 33%. Jumping to 3 here is awful. Any system that suggests that is the right bid should be doubted. A more normal sane auction might ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AQ7 AKQ6 A8 T982
Yeah, obviously the entire hand is about the club suit. At the table I took the low road, but wasn't sure how clear it was. I was also curious if anyone would bid 6NT. If partner has 2 clubs without the K, it seemed a lot less likely that ...
Forcing or nonforcing 4!D?
If the auction had gone 3 X 3 P P then you might have had a point Chris since 3 should be (I believe?) alertable if it isn't forcing. If it is forcing, S would undoubtedly raise on their xxx of hearts and a side singleton ...
Forcing or nonforcing 4!D?
Actually, just looked and the 3 bidder had AKT9. Given partner's holding of QJ8xx of hearts and a few more scattered points, I think X is pretty reasonable :)
