about me

Ex-soccer player, Leonberger-lover, happily married to a computer geek, living in Palo Alto, CA; unemployed PhD. in Biology, who is probably way too ambitious in her Bridge playing goals.

RIP John Sutherlin
I will miss my buddy John, he always gave me a big smile when we saw each other at nationals, I gave him a big hug. One of the very good guys in the bridge world!
PhD Funding for the Sociology of Bridge
one can always have more than one Ph.D ;-)
Calibration
I am not sure everybody would play 4C as a picture jump here. We play 1M -2m; 2y - 4m as RKC. So do not assume that partner is balanced with no club length unless discussed.
Ankur Rathi's bidding problem: Q96 865 AK75 874
We play 2NT natural invite, my choice on this hand.
Bidding after a preempt
We play it minors or a weaker heart raise when pulling a minor to 5H
Interference after a transfer
If they bid 2♠ (or cue 2♥ and advance 2♠) now responder’s bids: 1. Double = Cards, 2-3 trumps, then follow-ups by resp. are forcing 2. 2N = Weak T/O 3. 3m = Natural, competitive through invitational 4. 3ourM = to play 4. Cuebid = GF unsuitable for double 5. 4m = Natural
Anamnesis
Good job, Michael. I liked it a lot!
The Best Bridge Writer
If there is anyone who has not read it or given it as a present, go out there and get it. It is such a fun read and might get a young person into bridge!
Board 1 from the 02/06/2018 Common Game
Why does South not try to get to a 4-4 fit versus the potential 5-3 fit?
Defining a "Good Suit"
I think that if we did not specifically say, two of the top three, than KJTxx is minimum for a good suit for me
