about me

A rare species of young person obsessed with all things bridge Smile.

I started a quarantine bridge Youtube channel, AceintheDesert, as well as a Twitch and Discord which you can find below (given I don't annoy you enough on bridgewinners).

Tricky Bridge: Playtest it now!
This is absolutely fantastic so far for the 30 mins of I have played this! I'm loving the storyline in the teaching mode :). Looking forward to submitting some feedback soon.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Axx Tx KQJxx ATx
Move the small over to a 3rd small and now you’re down at probably at least 2 in 4s on a lead. Maybe too many of my regular partners are overbidders :-).
David Caprera's bidding problem: Axx Tx KQJxx ATx
2N/3 feels like too much speculation too me. We made a red 2-level overcall, partner can act if X or bidding game is right.
Web Page for Online College Bridge Championship
The competition was put together as a replacement event for the yearly ACBL College Championship, which after three qualifying tournaments was supposed to be held in Montreal but got cancelled with everything else. Who knows what will happen next year? The event was organized from a set of those that ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 9 K74 AKJ9642 K7
Don, I don’t know about the “right answer”, but partner held QTx of s, Kxx of s and the J. Opponents can make 5, you can only make 3s. This hand doubled and partner pulled to 4 rather than risk 3N. We were debating if a ...
Defending Against the Precision 2!c Opening
Pretty normal stuff (double t/o, Lebensohl, etc). Depending on your agreements, a 3 should probably be michaels instead of stopper asking.
An Odd Duck
FYI as of a few months ago, Bridge Master is now free to everybody (and before that it was free for registered USBF JRs anyway).
System Notes and Online Play
I think it would be much better for aids like system notes to be banned, but for all intents and purposes, it's impossible to enforce. You can already view your convention card mid-auction without penalty, so unless BBO wants to make system changes it seems pointless to me to ...
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
Ditto to what David said. That's also been my experience.
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
Debbie, this was the online regional. There is a glitch for 2 session events that isn’t fixed yet where convention cards don’t post at all the second session and need to be manually posted by each partnership.
