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.

Do Support and Maximal Doubles Mix?
I think using the term DSI is confusing. It's a value showing double, usually with exactly 4 spades. It's not penalty. Not maximal because a major suit fit has not been confirmed.
Is the double a comparable call?
Is a 3c overcall a comparable call, is a better question imo. Mostly yes, but there are a few incongruencies like some 1n openers with no heart stopper.
What Does Partner's Tank Suggest? II
If you play with this partner regularly, you can probably be expected to know what his BIT means better than we on bridgewinners could guess. This is a problem with polls concerning BIT
ATB missed slam
South has a pretty clear Blackwood bid imo over 4h. Bidding 4s will not accomplish nearly as much. South really has a slam force opposite a keycard...
ATB missed slam
South's decision to not bid slam over 5c seems impractical. Partner usually has 4 hearts and isn't expected to show the queen on length with 4. North might have chosen a different bid than 4h, which is why I gave them part of the blame. Still, South has ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ5 AT64 A8 AQ93
It would be strange for partner not to have 10 cards in 2 suits. At the least, it seems to me that passing isn't a good choice.
“Never preempt over a preempt”...what’s the intuition? (If you agree)
I've always just bid 4H in competition on both hand types, but obviously that can make partners life hard in competition.
What Does This Bid Mean?
I think it's not clear yet, but one possibility the way I play would be not hearts, and 3 spades. 3451 obviously possible, as is probably some hand which just wants to cuebid spades (though I might try not to do this to avoid ambiguity). Hands without real hearts ...
How should the director rule
Lee, I disagree with point a) as a clear assumption. Further, if 3H were natural, then 4H would definitely be natural. Others have given 5-7 hands for example, that could logically want to be in 4H. There are some situations in which you can logically deduce that there's been ...
How should the director rule
i agree that such an explanation is never necessary by the rules, but I was just saying that I don't have a problem with saying, "our agreement is majors, but it seems like partner might have forgot". The alternative is saying, "our agreement is majors", and then looking at ...
