What's a sensible defence against short-diamond Mini-Roman?
My preference would be something like: X = weak notrump or a very strong hand 2M = Natural, 3C advance is a cuebid 2N = 16-18 3C = 5/5 or more majors 3D = Natural 3M = 5/5 or more bid suit and diamonds 3N = to play, probably running diamonds The reasoning is that ...
Your Ideal Opening Structure
I'm very happy with the opening structure Sam and I actually use, which is: 1 = 16+ artificial (stronger if balanced) 1 = 11-13 balanced (no 5M), or 10-15 any 4441/5431/5440 without a 5M, or 5+/5+ minors 1M = natural 5+ suit, 9-15ish (rule of 18) 1NT ...
Dutch doubleton or transfer responses?
If opener has a weak notrump, the main difference is on weak responder hands with no major, where Dutch Doubleton gets you a bit more space for scrambling and lets opponents help you off the hook by responding 1 instead of 1. If opener has the big notrump ...
Greater Boston Industrial League
I'm sure I can get a team together, although the composition will probably depend on the time of the match (time zones are tricky). Let me know when you'd like to give it a shot.
Greater Boston Industrial League
Google has been running an internal league (employees only) which is currently on its third “season” with 8-10 teams each time. So obviously we can field a team; in fact our best team is likely to be quite strong! Of course restricting to the Boston office I’m not sure ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
Trying to compare master points between eras is ridiculous -- it's like arguing which is the greater invention, the iPhone or the cotton gin... and then bemoaning the fact that inflation prevents us from just counting up the dollars each inventor made. Over the years the rules of bridge have ...
Masterpoints(tm) in the ACBL; I am sure other jurisdictions have more or less equivalents
The purpose of master points is to give people a feeling of accomplishment when they play bridge. This keeps people coming back for more. Non-bridge players generally don't know/care much about master points. However, they do appreciate titles (life master, grand life master, world champion, etc) and sometimes ...
A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
Another thing that's slightly odd about this, is that you have two opponents rather than just one. This is particularly important at MP scoring where it matters what the other tables do. For example, suppose we bid stayman and partner shows a four-card major. Should we invite? Suppose: 1 ...
A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
Taking a quick glance through the example hands, I see a LOT that I would have upgraded out of the 1NT opening (control-rich or spot-rich 17 including a five-card suit). Opposite a 1NT opening that includes these super-sound hands it seems like inviting on an 8-count tends to be odds-on.
Identifying Bridge Proteges
A lot of the “bridge genes” advantages come down to good coaching and help finding partners and teammates, which is obviously huge but also is the sort of thing coaching programs can provide easily. I don’t think it’s really “genetic” to any great degree. I had all the ...
