about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Mean .vs. Geomean
it is true that taking a geometric mean when one of the data points is 0 is comparatively simple. Unfortunately, it is also comparatively useless.
What does S show?
Shows a hand that would have doubled a 3 overcall.
ATB - non-making game instead of diamond slam
Might do that with the majors the other way round. But here, even if they woodenly lead partner's suit... well, someone might make nine tricks in notrump but it might not be me.

You'd be a bit nervous about the whole business. After all, xxx Kxxx x AKJxx is a 2 bid and you would not want to play in other than 3NT.
ATB - non-making game instead of diamond slam
Why "must slam be in the picture"? What is partner supposed to do with xxx KJxxx x AQxx over double?
ATB - non-making game instead of diamond slam
Well, a 2 overcall will get you to 2. True, you will make it, but...
Ninad More's bidding problem: AQT932 AK4 K743 ---
True - Gazzilli works terribly on this kind of hand, which is better than it works on other kinds.
ATB - non-making game instead of diamond slam
So do I, but I do not know how the auction should proceed to 6. Maybe South is allowed to bid 4, then 4-6 is possible, but this has the hallmarks of wisdom after the event.
Strike Gold
I'd rather not. I get on fine with the chap, and besides, he's bigger than I am.
Opener's rebid of 3NT in Precision
Used to play 1M-2m-3NT as 5-4-2-2 with four in partner's minor and stoppers in the doubletons. Seemed best use for otherwise idle bid, and actually helped quite a lot if partner wanted to try for slam.
