about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

United Kingdom

T-Walsh: responding with a weak Flannery hand
Playing all of 1s, 2c and 2d as artificial you have a massive range of sequences available. This is clearly one hand type to put in somewhere but I don’t think it matters much where. In a different partnership 2h is 4-5 majors weak.
T-Walsh: responding with a weak Flannery hand
Via 1. Not sure I can claim which route is better.
I fail to see why ‘weak’ stopped West acting but somehow ‘less than 9’ would not have done

2c-2d-2h 4-5 majors weak
Escaping after partner opens a weak NT
I've played in 1NTxx after a mini 1NT opening a few times. It's usually very close between 6 and 7 tricks. That's against decent oppo.
Online Bridge Ruling: Failure to Alert and Wild Bids
Why? What is 'iffy' or 'questionable' in the legal sense? East can bid exactly as he likes.
