about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

The Worst Convention Ever
Ed: "When the opening lead is face down would be a good time for declarer to ask whatever questions he likes." Yes, for the general question 'Leads and Carding?" But, for 'particular' questions, there may be 10 questions to which you want to know the answer with the lead face ...
Protection ?
Really, it's exposed anyway. South has to keep K, so in the 2-card ending, to get it wrong, you would have to play for South to pass 10xx, xx, AKx, KJ10xx AND North not to give SP for a club at trick 2, with a void there. Only a ...
Protection ?
Tom: Your argument why South should switch to a club at trick 3 is totally logical. But, after, North's blatant use of UI, South loses the right to make this defense. It's certainly reasonable that South would fail to defend perfectly. I'm aware that you said this ...
The age of paranoia
1) I see nothing definitely suspicious about the 4 bid - other than South thinking he is Sidney Lazard. In addition to the analysis done elsethread, one can deduce, or at least infer, that partner is void in clubs. With 4-1-4-4, most East's would open 1. Therefore East ...
Play Problem
Amusing how Kit and I approach the attitude switch from totally different angles. "If West had the ace of diamonds and a singleton heart, he would have cashed the ace of diamonds before leading the club..." That is not unflawed. Declarer could have a void. Also, West may have ...
Play Problem
I was wondering about this hand. Is the defense actually “virtually impossible”? Let’s say West’s shift is defined as attitude (as I think it should be). So, if West had a ruff coming, he would shift to a high club. When West instead shifts to a ...
Protection ?
Tom: "It would be so much better if you said something like "that may be the legal ruling, but ..." I will try to do so in future. I apologize for all past confusion in this area. Btw, maybe it should be "a" legal ruling rather than "the".?
Protection ?
Tom: Ok. We've reached the point where all we can do is agree to disagree.
Protection ?
Not sure what you mean. But if you're saying that you would always fail in 5, and I might make it, then I'll stipulate.
Protection ?
Roland: "Don't tell me about having my head in the sand when it is apparent that you want North penalized no matter what the law says." Unless I specifically say so, my comments are NEVER about what the Law is. It's not an area I feel I have ...
