about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)




But, you don't have to use my simple but effective techniques.  I'll play what you play as well!

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
This hand certainly demonstrates the power of the Majors and the great weakness of 's in competitive auctions. In this case it was a perfect storm that prevented N-S's ability to compete with any level of safety.
Partnership Defense

ATB: Missed Slam (corrected)
4NT is all of the above, AND YET, it worked!! :) (I can't count the number of times that opponents did what I later considered crazy, but luckily for them it made our auction difficult to impossible to reach our par).

What does this 1NT rebid show?
K.I.S.S. "I'm delighted to play 1NT".
Kyle, can you help me and others understand why this hand is posted as I currently see it. All I can honestly see is that playing 3NT down at IMPS while a grand slam is there is both foolish and a "teammate killer" (they will never agree to play again ...
Spam or Abuse of BW membership or Legit?
A few seconds into this "secret, profitable project" made it abundantly clear that it was yet another scam, unworthy of further attention, and the BW policy of noting "unverified users" provided more than sufficient warning.
