about me

I'm a student at Northwestern University, local to the Chicago area, and run all things bridge on campus! Majoring in Math and Psychology, with a side focus in Game Theory/Economics.

Love everything about bridge-- particularly system discussions and examining various bidding treatments.

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J9852 T2 AK52 K5
Um... no.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J5 Q75 764 Q8752
Well I was trying to create a hand to generate a discussion on the differences between 2, 2NT, and X by the passed hand, and what inferences they show to opener regarding spade support and the minor suits-- but that effort apparently failed twice so I give up (and ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J5 Q75 764 Q8752
Pass is a bid :-)
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J5 K75 764 Q8752
Whoops actually, I did frame this problem wrong-- the intent is to really find out what hand that would typically pass 1M do with this shape. I'm reposting the problem with Qxx of hearts instead of Kxx (thanks for the catch for all who commented-- accidentally copied the hand ...

Who is wrong?
Raising partner with your doubleton is almost certainly wrong. Especially when you hold 2 other 5 card suits. X to show those suits-- it's not really an overbid because you have tolerance for partner's suit and shortness in their suit, kind of like a responsive double.
Looking for Precision Simplified
This is very random, but do you know why this exists on a Northwestern Math Department page? I'm trying to figure out where the heck this came from!! (I'm a current Northwestern student in charge of our bridge club and and very confused when this was written and ...
TD case- Am I wrong?
South's justification for how his double should be interpreted is clearly admitting to giving, and pursuing the sending of UI. You can't have a pseudo-agreement that "if I don't ask about a artificial bid, my takeout is treating the artificial bid as natural, and if I do ...
