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.

 Currently looking for a serious partner for the 2nd week of Toronto (Tuesday-Sunday). Interested only in National events-- PM me if interested.

United States of America

Frank Lin's bidding problem: KJT4 Q8 KT74 QT6
There might be punishment here for 2, but not enough information available to truly know if it's worth it. One of the benefits of playing 5 card preempts.
Jacoby 2NT?
Natural. Just learn Drury.
Club Ruling
I'm guess 2 was not alerted (with no agreement about bids after an 1NT overcall), and hence 2 wasn't a cuebid. There seems to be a discrepancy on what systems EW play over a 2 overcall. If EW had the agreement that 2 was ...
Revoke followed by incorrect concession/claim--Result?
It's still frankly insane if you are supposed to consider the opponent's potential revokes when making a claim. Forget what is the "fair" result without a revoke-- on the lay of the cards without the claim declarer has a very reasonable line to 13 tricks with the penalty ...
Revoke followed by incorrect concession/claim--Result?
Okay this has made me curious so I got out the Law-- I think law 69B is probably the one that applies, based on the fact that the claim is made before the revoke discovered. Declarer has essentially claimed the lost of a trick that is not possible (having all ...
Revoke followed by incorrect concession/claim--Result?
Without the revoke, it seemed you would have taken 12 tricks (conceding a high trump). You get one back for the revoke-- I am not informed on the exact law numbers that apply, I'm sure someone here knows. It's interesting that a claim was involved-- I think when ...
what is the difference between XX and 2NT here
I'm thinking 2NT is a balanced invite (maybe with a diamond feature decent enough to have not enough interest defending at this vulnerability, and stoppers in the majors), XX should be value showing, partner can now double for penalty in wherever they scramble to, rebids should just be ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AKJT8xxx Q Axx x
I wasn't actually polling about preempting this hand, but opening 2. Maybe I'm just playing too many strong club systems right now, but with 4 losers I think it's a pretty accurate description. I opened the hand this way with one of my collegiate teammates we ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- Q84 KJ9732 AT85
Yep-- posted this from my phone with bad wifi-- it's fixed now.
When can 1m-1M-2M be based on 3 card support?
How about... by agreement? When I play 3-card raises in standard, I personally prefer to have the agreement to play spiral raises, where a 2NT by responder asks partner if they raised their suit on 3 or 4 card support. Without agreement, doing it with two honors is probably fine ...
