about me

I am an academic living in Ankara, Turkey. I started duplicate bridge around 1984 when I was a graduate student at ISU in Ames, Iowa.  (Thanks to the departed Harvey Burkholder, the director of Ames Bridge Club during those years.)

Nowadays, I can only make time for playing in one or two major national team tournaments in my country each year. I also help administrate the web page of my bridge club: http://www.jeofizikbric.com/web/index.php (sorry, it is only in Turkish).

How would you interpret this bid?
You mean 6. Yess :)
How would you interpret this bid?
I really did not know how 6 would be interpreted. And still I am not sure... (EDIT) NOTE: According to the system it shows an odd number of KCs (not 0 or 2), but that doesn't clarify how it would be understood.
How would you interpret this bid?
This was my original hand: xx 98xxx - AKJxxx Right or wrong, I decided to start with 4. Then, when my pard bid 4NT, I thought bidding 6 would be too lazy, because if we had all the KCs, pard would not have any bidding space, while 7 ...
How would you interpret this bid?
Of course not only that, you've already covered the rest in your first comment.
How would you interpret this bid?
Sorry if you get annoyed, but 6 shows an odd number of KCs, as noted in the OP.
How would you interpret this bid?
:) There is one missing KC. Why is it so hard to give it to pard?
How would you interpret this bid?
None Steve. Probably you're transferring me to another pair!
