about me

During daytime I am a theoretical mathematician, working at the University of Amsterdam. I live in Amsterdam with Meike Wortel and our 1-year old son Lars. 

I learned to play bridge in the United States; first in Michigan, and later on BBO. I've been back in the Netherlands since 2009, apart from some time spent in Oslo. 

I currently play in the Dutch league for Witte Huis 3, and we just promoted to the highest division. From what I hear 't Ontstein is quite scared already.

A suicidal transfer break
And east might have transferred at the 4-level (if sane).
Difficult to Duck
Eric, the argument that other auctions also wrong-side notrump is not a good reason to wrong-side notrump here as well. Of course, two things need to happen for 2NT to wrong-side notrump. First you should actually end up in notrump, which is certainly not a given after this start of ...
Difficult to Duck
I was referring to the proposal of Lessard, which I understood as 2S promising a minimum. I don't think that he proposes to keep the meaning of all other bids natural.
Difficult to Duck
Kit, if 2S promises a minimum then that is not meaningless.
Prefer non-forcing. Forcing hands have alternatives.
When NOT to explore a 4-4 fit?
The fact that I also wrote that 5332 opposite 4333 with a 54 fit favors 3NT could have made it less surprising for you Michael. As for 4333 opposite 5332, I did use more restrictions on my simulations, tying to take into account that second hand passed, etc. This could ...
