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

Down Under Coup
Fair comment about the "dentist-like" part. But you ARE still cashing a winner before exiting to prevent their winning defense via the suit where you cashed the winner. So I felt there was SOME similarity. Mostly, I just thought it was a really pretty position - and wanted to use the ...
Down Under Coup
"S played ♦8 covered by W's ten, N must duck!!!" That seems like nonsense. If you duck 10 declarer has 2 spades, 4 hearts, 2 diamonds and a club.
The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
How does your Suction method work? What do you do with roundeds or pointeds?
Down Under Coup
Maybe I'll do those - just for drill.
Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
Sorry, I took so long to get around to giving any insight on this. The reason is probably that I don't want to add much more to what has already been said. Almost all the points were pretty well covered. I think having a strong opinion on this problem ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
"I think there are too many acceptable reasons for withdrawal to enumerate them." Agreed. There are also too many unacceptable reasons. That's why the subjective decision of the Credentials Committee offers the best chance of continually avoiding something 'unfair' - in either direction.
The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
Jim P: I think if you did a more complete analysis, you'd fine that was clearly true if NV, but far less clear if Vul.
The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
Paul F: " I never liked the rule change that allowed the regulation of nautural calls." Me neither. I sea we think alike.
common game deal best line for 6NT
Craig Z: "The East hand type Michael suggests (4-1-Hxxxx-QJT) in no way account for these increases. That particular East hand will occur on only about one deal in 10,000 (actually, one in 9,268). So that would only increase the percentages by perhaps 0.01%." I was going to ...
common game deal best line for 6NT
"They show that the improved ♣ spot cards have a significant effect on the probability that 12 tricks are makeable--goes from 43.19% to 51.51%." That is hardly a revelation. Without the spots, only 3-3 works. With the spots, you can also make the extra trick with stiff 10, J ...
