about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...

 

I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

My understanding is that the scorpion dish is strictly for the tourists.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
That's literally what she said.
ATB: Did anyone actually do anything wrong?
I know someone who did something wrong on this hand - but it wasn't at your table :)
ATB - Goulash hand went wrong
Where is "The bidding looks horrible, both players are to blame"
Extras or Not?
Any bid over 2H would show extras
Robots did me dirty
You can click next to find out. JS got covered. Michael won and crossed to the AH to take the finesse again Losing both a diamond and a trump was suboptimal in 6S
Poll on 4-way transfers
As others have said, using 2S as size ask or clubs and 2N as diamonds or weak mm is relatively common here
How do I leave a thread?
I find the daily summary works great for me.
Spingold Chances SF- part 4
First, great series - I’m enjoying these. As to question 3, the 6D call has already won the board. If doubled, they’ll run to 6H, presumably down one less But better still is to do it faking a void - talking the opps out of a cold 6S
It Hesitated. Should I Shoot Myself?
Personally I'm in shock by the 1N bid. My opp bid 1N with your hand the first time and then 3 over 3!
