about me

Electrical engineer (power system protection)

Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess, testing engines. 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.

Gábor Szőts's bidding problem: 63 QT5 AJ7 JT986
And how right you are! Partner had: xx,xxx,Kx,AKQxxx. Clubs were 1-1 so 4 was going down while 5 (which was what I bid at the table) went down 2 doubled.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: AKQT9 T95 AJ987 ---
I agree, only I'd play double and pass inverted. Anyway, without pass being forcing the double should show a hand which will provide useful values for declaring. In other words, at least invitational values not counting the club suit.
Is this a Lebensohl situation for you?
At least 5-5 in hearts and a minor suit.
Barry Rigal's bidding problem: AQJ4 86 75 AK642
For me 1 would show 3 cards so that is out. 3 seems a slight overbid while 2 a slight underbid. So at MP's maybe 2 is indicated but I bid 3 anyway. Bidding 2 then 2 over 2 is GF ...
Is this a Lebensohl situation for you?
For this pair the double of 2 would have simply shown hearts.
Yuan Shen's lead problem: T8652 974 KT KJ4
This is clearcut. Assume East does not have AQ. West knows his partner has nothing in spades and only the queen of diamonds. East must have at least 9-10 more points and if all of those are in s West must have AQ of clubs and he would never lead ...
Michael Pitonak's bidding problem: 98754 Q AKT974 3
You could have solved the misunderstanding easily by inserting a pass for East before the question mark. You could have edited your post any time from the moment the first idiot came towards you on the highway.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: 2 AJ9 KQ8743 A84
You have to draw the line somewhere. 2 high honours looks fairly robust to me. You could have an even worse suit with which you'd want to bid 4NT.
What should this bid mean?
Maybe it should show the jack. Other trump honours can be shown by the response of an ace asking bid.
Continuations after 1!c (2!d) multi overcall
It has never come up against me but I'd play: - DBL: cards, forcing to 2NT; further doubles penalties - bids: Rubensohl If 2 is passed around to opener he treats it as a natural weak 2. He is not obliged to reopen. If they bid 2M our doubles are ...
