about me

Electrical engineer (power system protection)

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.

An awkward 2NT opener auction
It is recommendable to use opener's 3NT rebid to show both majors. In that context, all of opener's bids over 4 can show how much he likes his hand in view of his partner's bidding. If 3 does not deny spades you are in a ...

Bad Judgment or Bad Luck?
All they did was reasonable.
1NT, MPs, first step
Playing the king is not at all necessary even if East has Qxx or Jxx in hearts and finds the spade shift. Why can't he have 5 spades, when we can duck twice? Note that West led from a 4-card heart suit and if spades are 4-4 then he ...
Kickback Konfusion
Let me put my opinion in another way: if I have support for my partner's suit I'd never bid 3 times without supporting him and offer to play his suit with my 4th (!) call (5th this time but 1 does not count). That ought to be obvious ...
Kickback Konfusion
Well, 1NT certainly did not deny spades. 2 may not have denied spades. But an undefined 3 surely did deny spades.
Kickback Konfusion
Opener did not raise 1. Nor did he bid 2 over 2. Nor did he bid 3 over 3. And 4 is natural? Give me a break.
