about me

Former electrical engineer (power system protection). Now resigned from work.

Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of music, reading, 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.

ATB - Just another missed slam
I might have bid 5 as North at my 1st turn but I would have certainly not passed 5 with the exceptional South hand. After all, North thought he'd make 5 facing wasted heart values.
T-Walsh: 1!C-1!S-2!D uncontested
We play 1 to show 4+ diamonds, and a raise to 2 is a normal raise, maybe on 3 cards. Our 1NT rebid may be slightly unbalanced with 5 clubs and our 2 rebid shows only 5. With stronger hands we either reverse in a major or ...
ATB - missed MP game
I don't see 1 as an error over a reopening double. Back to 100%.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: A AK7 AT93 T7432
Partner also heard 3. He won't bid them with less than 5. And we have lots of points so why should we be afraid playing a 8-card heart fit? If the opp doubles (holding 5), I'd redouble.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: A AK7 AT93 T7432
He will get his wish, only on defence.
You play Gazzilli but not Flannery
Hi Ian, Thanks for the details. I don't say I agree with rebidding 2 on 3 but if you are fine with that so am I.
You play Gazzilli but not Flannery
I don't know what you mean by how forcing. If pass is an option then 1NT is non-forcing. Obviously, playing 2/1 puts its upper boundary at 11 HCP's.
You play Gazzilli but not Flannery
There is so much variety in the texture of such a hand that I could not provide examples. I'd be grateful if you could specify the conditions upon which you would base your choice, although I feel you would consider 1NT with the appropriate doubletons.
Geir Helgemo and the ACBL
I hope this opens the eyes of all relevant bodies.
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
I'm relieved. I never consume alcohol in the playing area or the toilet. There is a nice pub just across the street where we play our bridge...
