about me

USBF Junior mentor (having a great time with a half-dozen [now 8] very eager youngsters from 12-16).  Nearly made the top 500 in 2017, planning a stronger effort in 2019.

Occasionally play on BBO against Cayne and his pros, or Richard Pavlicek and partner.  I enjoy the opportunity to play against that caliber of players.  Win occasionally, too.

Country
United States of America

World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
So USA1 and USA2 have finished 1st and 3rd in the RR - USA1 will play Singapore (who beat them) and USA2 Poland (who they beat). The girls are also in the KO's, having finished 7th. Tough finish for the Youth team, finishing 9th.
Brilliant bid by Polish youngster
I think he has something like Axx xx KQJx Kxxx. But I thought that a PC pair would open that 1. So I think he has Axx QJx Kx KJxxx and cue bid before because he had no losers opposite the A. And he's bidding 5 ...
An interesting hand from a recent sectional
If declarer has the KJ I call the director.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 7 AJ82 J J976532
This is the companion hand to my recent problem Jxxx Qx AK10xx Ax. Partner drove to game with this hand (he actually bid 3 immediately), which was aggressive, and turned out to be fatal when clubs were 4-0 and we got doubled. If I had overcalled 2, they ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: --- AK AQJ96 AJT543
If partner has 3 spade losers, we will have no side suit losers. If partner has 4 spade losers, ugh.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AK4 A4 KQ76 J765
NT better from partner's side.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J832 Q5 AKT42 A6
I thought this deal was a lot more complicated than the votes here indicate. And I am absolutely stunned to see 9 votes for pass. How can you not bid SOMETHING with 3 quick tricks and a 5-card suit to the AK10? I was torn between 1NT and 2 ...
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T7 QJT86432 9 J7
I passed here. This led to a hilarious result. Partner collected 4 tricks on this deal, for -400. But that was one more than we were entitled to against 3NT. So we scored 67% on the board, since the opponents had 26 HCP between them.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AQT5 AK2 K4 K764
I just bid 4NT here, partner reasonably passed since he had 9xx Q9xx AJ AQxx and was not in love with either of his red quacks. But everything worked except the K; hearts were 3-3, clubs 3-2, and the opening leader was not in love with the idea lof leading ...
Michael Kamil's bidding problem: K KJT85 AK AJT63
I thought they were supposed to bid something with a stiff heart here. I passed because I was sure partner was short in hearts. I guess there's an exception when you have a minor suit doubleton. Still, it has to be percentage for RHO to have more hearts than ...
