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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is double
Penalty. Other hand types can be dealt with easily by other means.
1NT - should it be 100% forcing in response to 1H or 1S
In my view it's better to play forcing NT if no Gazzilli in use, otherwise a nonforcing one.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: KQ943 AJ72 K9 T6
Same category.
Thank you Richard Pavlicek!
Why do you think it was diamonds partner was asking for?
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: AT862 AJ7 A AKJ6
I like the structure. I think it is close between 4 and 4 (I chose the latter). If only I could ask for 10 as well...
Why don't DBL?
The real question is why he did not bid 3NT.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 4 AQ7 AJ87632 AQ
3 seems obvious not because I don't feel it's a bit overweight but because I don't want to spend the remainder of the bidding with discouraging partner from clubs (after I have bid 3). I hope he's not going to hesitate before bidding 3NT ...
I would not include 5-6 in 2. You may need the 4th round 3 bid for something else, e.g. a control bid for hearts. Bid an immediate 3 over 2om with 5-6.
Well, Peg, in that case you might like this one too: Over 1m-1-1-2om (GF) we play: - 2: 3 hearts, balanced - 2: 2 hearts, balanced, no stopper - 2NT: 2 hearts, balanced with stopper - 3om: natural, 4 cards (3-suiter) - 3: 3 hearts, short om (5431 or 6430)
We have a clear rule in this situation: - 2 shows a balanced hand with 2 diamonds and denies a stopper - 2NT is balanced with stopper, 2 diamonds - 3 shows 3 diamonds without shortness - 3 is a splinter with 3 diamonds So we have an obligatory 2 ...
