about me

24 year old who has played bridge for a larger proportion of their life than the chance of him taking a successful finesse. Unfortunately, the wrong number is growing in this regard. Apparently "studied" engineering in London.

 

Love bridge, not much else to it 

 

Favourite convention: Dopi Ropey

Going Down Swinging
There was a national pairs session several years ago where my partner and I averaged 29% for the first 12 boards and 77% for the second 12.

Transfers when partner overcalls and they raise
My partner and I play a lot of transfers in these spots but simplify them down. This is slightly less optimal for various reasons (mainly when raising partner) but we get far more usage out of it and have 1 symmetrical system for lots of spots. Atm we play transfers ...
