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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ruling please
I don't know what the laws say. Hopefully, no Director would permit it.
Ruling please

Ruling please
David B: "...this is where the real trouble lies." We agree. The place where my line is drawn, while subjective, is clear. Any sign oif blackout. Whereas your line is drawn where...well I have to say I still don't know where your line is drawn.
Ruling please
David B: Ok, so you allow A10x opposite QJx (if you hadn't, my next question would have been A10x facing QJ9), but not AJ10 facing Qxx. Good to know. Of course, in A10x opposite QJx anyone of the following 'low to the 10 blackouts' might have been about to ...
Ruling please

1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Christopher M: you didn't answer my last question: "And what if you follow the same philosophy with 3-card - only doing it when you're 'stuck'?" In addition, what about 1(2m)-X(P), 2? Do you think that needs to be alerted if it might be ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?

1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
shoulda given KQJ,KQJ,KQJ,xxxx....
Ruling please
The point of the AQ question is that declarer knows that's all there is to the hand, but the defender does not. So the question is purely an effort to save time - to avoid going over everything that happened on the hand to help with the guess. No intent ...
Ruling please
David B: Still hoping to hear your answer on this. If the OP situation had been A10x facing QJx? Or Axx facing QJ10? How would you rule in those cases?
