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.

Thank you for your replies. I am writing this in Firefox and the background is blue (which turns grey when I remove the mouse pointer from this box). Issue solved, I think. Only, something happened with either the forum software or the browser.

Liam Milne's bidding problem: KJT J9762 T52 A5
Too good in the blacks to pass. 1NT would not only wrong-side (or no-side) the contract but make the player with 5 diamonds on lead.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: J7 K6 AQJ2 AK975
3. Because I am nonvulnerable, so I have a chance to go unpunished even if I'm overboard.
European Bridge Clubs
At the site of the Hungarian Bridge Federation there is a list of bridge clubs in Budapest and her neighbourhood: I think of those it's enough to consider these ones: Bridzs Barátok klubja (Club of Bridge Friends) 1119 Budapest, Mérnök utca 40. Play ...
European Bridge Clubs
In Budapest I know of only this one where there is regular bridge: Unfortunately the page is only in Hungarian. I looked at the schedule and I have not found a date around Christmas. But the list may be incomplete or I am not smart enough ...
Are you in shape? We weren't
Without agreement I'd assume 2NT to deny 4 hearts.
Precision interference
This double has the same meaning as (1)-2-(2)-DBL. Which is, as I play it: hearts (5 assumed) + club tolerance (2 assumed).
AWB - Assess West's Bidding
What was 3? If TO, West should have bid 4. If PEN, 3 was fine.
