about me

Electrical engineer (power system protection)

Used to play chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of classical music, pop music agreeing with my age, detective stories, thrillers, various sports, games of logic.

Started to play bridge in 1974. Won my first major tournament in 1980.

More interested in bidding than in card play.

I used to be a regular commentator at BBO. Now and then still do it.

A few 2/1=FG style questions
Q1: Cue for spades. Q2: 3. I can't show 6 spades directly and even if I could, via 2 something, what would I bid over 3, 4 might be interpreted as a cue for s. Q3: 4. It shows a strong 6-4.
Everyday situation
This has turned out more interesting than I had thought. Thanks all.

What do you expect doubler to have in trumps?
Caught in a Backwash
In the backwash squeeze the opponent is squeezed in 3 suits, one of them a trump.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
If partner is weak with the blacks, which many here suggested, why did he not bid 2 over 1? At least he won't have us guessing. Trust your partner: he has a big hand. 1 was probably lunatic but he's got away with it. Do ...
Responses after a Forcing NT is overcalled
It's much better to play the double for hands you are likely to hold, not for ones you are unlikely to hold. And those hands are the T/O double shapes.
