about me

I live in London, England. I played at a reasonable level in the late eighties and early nineties (I was, to quote the late, great, Martin Hoffman 'one of those players, young and old, toiling away in trials, to whom I know I could give ten yards' start in a hundred), before leaving the game (largely on account of the unpleasant and litigious attitudes which bridge administrators try so hard to promote). I started playing again in 2016 at an above-average club level. I was in the winning EBU Camrose team in 2019 and 2020.

Kokish (Birthright) after 2C, and effect on second negatives when Kokish not used
The ugly duck was 4441, surely?
Trick Two
Moreover you will know who has KH. If declarer's hand is somehow something like Axx J109xxx Kx Qx, partner may have some difficulty in giving an accurate suit preference signal if you play a second club at once, but presumably declarer will have to finesse on the heart switch ...
Thomas Bessis invokes Rabbi's Rule
How about 'brb my cat is disembowelling a mouse on the carpet'?
Can North Pass?
I'm surprised so many are so confident about this. Standard when I learned the game was that this redouble creates a force to 2D only (ie oppo can play 2H undoubled but not 2D). Obviously it's a question of agreement, but I would not have considered myself forced ...
