about me

I live in Sunnyvale California and I'm 22 years old.  I play professional bridge part-time, and just graduated from Berkeley.  I'll be starting a job as a software engineer later in the year.  I've also played a lot of junior bridge representing the USA, and enjoy those tournaments almost as much as anything.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A hand from rubber bridge
this line does fail to RHO's 5251 and 5341. Note the only singleton heart RHO can really have is the queen. if i cash the AH and don't see the queen, I believe I can continue a second heart and pick up 5341 with RHO (ruff diamond return ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AQ7 Q4 AQ985 A96
I tend to believe them in these situations, in that they usually are correctly telling us, you have a slam. would like to have a forcing pass here but I understand not. Doubling is further from hand than 5s imo. They may have overcalled a 4 card suit of course ...
Psyches - and fielding them
ah ok I misunderstood, maybe your 2nd sentence should have clarified it. At any rate, while someone could be lying, I don't think anyone has to be. If the 1H bidder was indeed psyching, this just seems like a classic example of a fielded psych to me.
Psyches - and fielding them
your first sentence is, imo, very strange unless it's meant to be specifically true for some reason on this hand, which I don't exactly see.
Interesting Play Problem from Victor Champion Cup
you are correct this would make the hand if E is 2254. However if they have that shape, my suggested line also makes the hand. I think I referenced this on page 7 when I said "if LHO is 3433 (giving RHO 2254), then you will get to see what ...
Is this agreement announced or alerted or not mentioned
Not sure about the rules but to me this should depend on the tournament setting. In a club game, should just say 11+. Behind screens, I would give the full explanation. In between is a grey area for you to decide.
Who should sleep on the couch?
ah I missed that. Obviously that's not quite how I'd prefer to play.
Who should sleep on the couch?
the double isn't penalty. But I do also think upon reflection that S should have bid 2N once North passed.
Who should sleep on the couch?
I think North should double 2H. Other stuff is less clear but it definitely feels like North undercooked it and that bid would have been an improvement.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T A654 A9543 KJ4
Not that the vul matters at all on this hand, but I just want to add that if the motivation for posting this is not wanting to try to penalize favorable opponents when you might have a red game, I think this is the BEST vul to try to go ...
