about me

I am a civil engineer by profession, living in Breda (NL). Started playing bridge relatively late, about the age of 26. Been member of the same club in Delft since 26 years.

Middle level club player (Hoofdklasse, for you Dutchies).

Peter Jan Plooy's bidding problem: AJ643 AQ732 --- J42
That was my line of thinking too. And so I passed. Turns out, he was asking for aces, and slam happened to be making on a favourable layout of the spades. It is a relatively new partnership, and we have now made new agreements, to be able to bid 5 ...
Elinescu and Wladow win their case against the WBF
"the DBF has done more than was humanly possible" The result of the implied divine intervention is, unfortunately, less then impressive.
Suit Combination
What else? There are no more entries to dummy...
Claim Ruling
Ken, playing it out would have cost less than a minute. But I suppose it was a good lesson in the workings of a squeeze, which he probably would not have noticed otherwise.

Claim Ruling
I am actually concerned about N's false testimony regarding the cards that declarer showed when claiming. If N indeed only showed the hearts to the director, and not the spades. Is that worth a PP?
Negotiated Settlement
Well, for one thing: "it doesn't matter" is not an instruction for dummy, "play anything" is (although not an actual designation of a card). "It doesn't matter" could be a mumbling to oneself while considering what card to choose.
When you're ready to make the opening lead
I thought the face-down opening lead is also meant to avoid LOOT problems. After it is pointed out that the other defender is on lead, the face-down can be retracted and play can continue without any problems. Do we really have to call the director in such a case? Do ...
