about me

Max, these thoughts are guessing; nothing more and nothing less. But my guess is that Amy either believes it is OK to ignore laws that she thinks are poor or do not make sense, or that something seeming "impossible to ignore" can override how some laws work. Many have commented ...
Do You Count Your Cards?
Georgiana, many years ago I was playing in a large barometer in a big regional. Partner and I were doing well, when an opponent made an overcall she should not have done at unfavorable vul. She and her partner tried to escape but there was no escape. As partner and ...
Do You Count Your Cards?

Do You Count Your Cards?

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Wow, Dale. I have screwed up so many times in my life, you could just refer to me as "Apologies Are Us".....
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion

ATB - Wrong contract
But I agree with those who say 4 is a poor bid. (That being said, if partner hadn't bid 2 with an awful suit and almost no HCP, we likely would have not arrived in 4. IMHO, 2 was the start of the disaster.)
ATB - Wrong contract
Andy - either that or Richard changed his mind mid sentence!
ATB - Wrong contract
I think that double is fine. I can envision plenty of hands where I could be playing 1 where game is cold if I only bid 1.
