Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Milan 1996, when I squeezed Garozzo for an overtrick in 6NT. After trick 9 he looked at me, I nodded and he put his cards back in the board.
Bridge Accomplishments
Winner of numerous tournaments. Played in Dutch top-division both teams and pairs.
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's this double (#206)
Penalty! Exeption if no room for game invitation, in this example a double of 3. All options "game try with …" look like 'stolen bid'.
Unique or at least very special
No, completely different. My partner's hands were respectively 19: 6 5 9 6 2 K Q 9 4 3 2 A K 23: 9 6 10 9 6 4 A K Q J 7 3 2
Unique or at least very special
The essence of the post were the hands, not the results. I'm absolutely sure this has nothing to do with a bug in the hand generator. It was just a coincidence, once in a lifetime.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
@Kerry - if you refer to my post: third hand play is not splitting as Monty already pointed out above. My post was concerning third hand play: it is standard to play the lowest of touching honors, my example was an exception.
Leading your fit in a competive auction
9, highest from (four) small when the highest two are adjacent (touching); particularly from 98(-) where the 9 shows 0 or 2 higher.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
It is playing the jack from Q-J-10 (against notrump, when partner leads low, 4th/5th not relevant, and dummy has 2 or 3 small).
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
"(...) and bottom of a sequence if playing third hand high." With one classic exception.
RKC Queen-Ask => 5NT ?
I'll convince partner to play Kickback.
What means that Double?
@Mike - no idea at the moment I bid 1NT, after that anything could happen. But after Pass-Pass probably 7. Partner has J10x x xxxx QJ10xx. And RHO Qxx AK10xxx xx AK.
RKC Queen-Ask => 5NT ?
1) Q, K, no K 2) Q, K
