about me

I started bridge in 2017, and I'm still playing exclusively at my local club in Sweden.

Outside of bridge, I'm a graduate student doing machine learning research.

Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: A2 AKQJ8652 A8 Q
Logical indeed. Next step (and the final one, I think):
Preben Schmidt's bidding problem: T98 JT976543 --- 84
Two losers too many. Too few high cards for 2. Reversed vuls, 3 is straightforward.
Bypassing 1!D and bidding 1NT with a balanced hand without a major
Absolutely. We actually changed systems since I made this post; we now play Swedish Club, where 1 is 10-12 balanced or any strong hand, and 1NT is 13-15 balanced. We're planning on starting to swap them based on vulnerability sooner or later.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: 54 A2 KQT73 KT92
Yes, pass is clearly forcing here. My double assumes a pass-double inversion (so it is a moderate suggestion to penalize); if not, I'll pass like Richard.

Transfers after 2-level overcall with major-suit raises
We play 2NT as an invitational+ 4 card raise in competition. But it seems that this style might be slightly better in allowing minor signoffs.
Ovunc Yilmaz's bidding problem: xxx Ax KQx AKxxx
On the positive side, I have good controls. On the negative side, I am balanced. 3 seems right. I'm sure we will be better placed after this auction, in particular since (looking into the future) partner clearly has spade shortage.
Steve Fama's bidding problem: QJ87 JT632 --- AJ96
Overcall, because i would like to have full high card strength when doubling at this position. Otherwise the double is just too wide ranging,and partner might overvalue our defense.
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: AJ94 3 AKT KQ754
In 2/1, SAYC, or any 5 card major system: open the longer minor.
Ian Wilson's bidding problem: A5 QJT AQ6 KQ653
3NT over a non-lebensohl response.
