David Birds Inappropriate Comment
Tony, I never listen to the voice commentary, but I own many of David Bird's books and do get a kick out of The Abbott, too. He's said he is sorry; hope we can all let it go now. Perhaps I should start a new thread and all ...
John Adams's bidding problem: AKJ8 K6 Q94 AJ54
If I have shortness and one stopper only AND support for all the other suits, as is the case with this hand, I never overcall 1NT. The odds that they can then run opener's suit when we can make a partscore - or game - in a suit are too high ...
Say No To Cheats
Mr. Pascal, Timo did not in any way say that someone who cheats at bridge is like a pedophile. He was only stating that allowing a cheat back into our game would be like allowing a pedophile to be in an environment, unsupervised, with many children. A world of difference ...
David Birds Inappropriate Comment
David Bird - thank you for your comment above. If people "rejected me" for saying something I said that did not come out as I intended, no one would have anything to do with me. Sometimes I think "sorry" is my middle name!
Crouch and Cope Win Silodor Pairs
Congrats to all 3 pairs! Paul Meerschaert and Robert Schacter are frequent teammies and sometimes partners of mine; THRILLED for their 2nd place!!!
David Birds Inappropriate Comment
What David Bird knows or does not, how good he is, etc. IMHO is pretty much irrelevant. The insinuation from the comment is quite bad. An apology is in order; the sooner the better. When a wrong has been committed, own up to it immediately.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: 4 JT94 QT653 AJ9
Steve - I agree with you about the choices; why it is such a tough problem. I'd add in 3NT, though, too. It surely could work! We are guessing; does partner have an 11-12 count with a stiff club? Or, does he have LOTS more with perhaps a doubleton club ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ76532 KQ4 K4 9
James, pretty much what I thought you intended :)
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ76532 KQ4 K4 9
Yes, only 1 J per deck, eh, Marshall?
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: 4 JT94 QT653 AJ9
I'm bidding 3 because if partner has a big hand, he likely will take another call. If he doesn't, then perhaps simply going plus (or not letting 3X make like some pairs may experience) will be a good result.
