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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Roland Wald R.I.P.
I'm shocked. I knew him as our vugraph coordinator, a most nice fellow who loved our game and loved us too. I'll miss him so much.
Known Combination
Fine analysis. BTW, I have always wondered why 1-1-1NT shows a narrow 18-19 range for you (and other pairs as well). Intuitively it seems more logical to play it for e.g. 17-19 because the level is low, and jump to 2NT (or open 2NT) with the narrow ...
What is 2NT?
I don't think that to find our fit in the other major is less important after a 2 overcall.
What is 2NT?
Extras but not forcing. With a poor hand I bid 2M. Partner should provide 2 hearts or have another call. I don't reserve a rebid for poor hearts.
Defending against a weak notrump
What we play: 1. We are not in a force. 2. X is TO if they bid naturally. It is cards if they bid artificially. Next X is penalty. 3. Suit bids are natural. Better to make opener the opening leader.
Zero Tolerance question
RHO should be hanged by his balls. No further disciplinary action is necessary.
Csaba Czimer's bidding problem: QT AQJ965 9 6432
In 4 I may take 5 heart tricks and partner needs to contribute only another 5.
WHO and CDC revised guidelines for masks
I wonder how you operate the tap. Do you open it with virus on your hands and close it with clean hands but virus on the tap?

Thanks to Mats and to the messenger, Peder.
Jump support after reverse
As I currently play it, the cheaper reverse does not promise one single card in the suit, can be e.g. 3307 (even when not strong enough to force to game).
