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.

Methods over Lead Directing X
We play that pass shows a stopper after which XX asks again. Without a stopper we transfer to the intended response, that is XX shows diamonds, 3 hearts and 3 spades.
Is there something better than BBO?
I totally agree with you on pickup team games, hosts booting players at their own will, and the rudeness. BBO has promised to address these problems but apparently without much success. I find the reputation point idea splendid.
Gábor Szőts's bidding problem: Q84 Q764 65 K952
I could not do it in tempo but my bid was 3. The opps competed to 3 and partner raised to 4. This was mercifully not doubled. The hand: http://bridzs.hu/result/1696/683/17imp1a06-4.htm
Is that alertable?
Thanks all for your replies. I would not have thought this would induce so many of them.

You must play extremely heavy openers.
Is that alertable?
Yes, I meant the possibility of 4 spades.
Combining preemptive, mixed, invitational and GF minor-suit raises with showing balanced hands.
With one partner I do play 2NT as invitational but our 2m is GF. We pretend that unbalanced invitational hands with support but without major do not exist.
Combining preemptive, mixed, invitational and GF minor-suit raises with showing balanced hands.
Barry, your system of 2m and 2NT both FG seems inherently conflicting to me. However, that is what Lauria-Versace play. Their solution for the 1 opening is as follows: 2: GF raise 3: invitational raise 3: PRE As their 2 response to 1 is ...
Combining preemptive, mixed, invitational and GF minor-suit raises with showing balanced hands.
To force in diamonds after 1-1-1NT we use 2 game forcing relay. I'm still waiting for the hand with which I would like to play 2 and the opponents would like it as well.
4H-(P)-5H?
This brings up funny memories. Once I opened 1 on AKxxx,x,AKxx,AKx. Partner responded 4. I bid 5 looking for a one-loser suit. Partner, with KQJ10xxx, passed. His LHO had A98xx.
