about me

I'm a former professor of computer science; now I work at Twitch trying to pretend video games are a job.   Or something like that.

Sometimes I build websites. I built the one you're looking at now.  If you find any bugs, I'm pretty sure they're Steve's fault.

Country
United States of America

Cologne court judges the prosecution of Wladow-Elinescu vs. Deutscher Bridge Verband.
Comment hidden because the community feels that suggesting murder is not appropriate, and I tend to agree.
Delayed Alert
That's fine, but when it [b]means[/b] is at odds with what it [b]says[/b], that's when you know it's time to revise.
Delayed Alert
and yet, we have: "Keycard- or Ace-asking calls and responses above the level of 3NT: Delayed Alert" Obviously the procedures have annoying corner cases, but these documents are in pretty desperate need of a rewrite, if not the actual rules behind them.
Delayed Alert
yes.
Ridiculous results, doubled or redoubled
Went -5200 in 6cXX against Max Hardy in a BAM at the Anaheim NABC in 2000. We did not win the board.
When else can 1m-1M-2M be based on 3 card support?
Funny, I think the raise to 2 is pretty automatic (unless playing precision), and much more likely to lead to a good contract than rebidding 1NT. To each his own, I guess. http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/1m-1m-now-what/
Dear GIB can we please take this bid off the card???
3 invitational with clubs is a pretty good treatment, as is 3 invitational with diamonds. Those hands are very, very difficult to deal with after forcing notrumps. Also passed hands cannot make forcing bids, so 1NT is not forcing by a passed hand.

It's a bug. We're bad at software :(

I'm impressed that you managed to break the auction display system.
