about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

United Kingdom

Martin Vodička's bidding problem: AJ963 T K43 AJ87
Both are demonstrably suggested over pass
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: --- Q97643 653 AQT2
This is true, but partner will also think he is opposite a singleton spade and a slam try and get too high with axx ax kqjxx Kxx (I would keycard opposite a splinter with that)
Precision interference
Take-out of spades. Nothing wrong with 2443 as the shape. None of your answers seem to cover this. I'd want to double on xx Kxxx Qxxx xxx and x Kxxxx Jxxxx xx I can't imagine being 6/6 and doubling, I would bid.
AWB - Assess West's Bidding
Do the 'South's in the poll mean 'West'? I've voted on that basis.
Are you in shape? We weren't
What is wrong with 3NT as the final contract?
Trick 1 signal
While a club switch is needed double dummy, is it obvious to declarer who to play for the king?
Tom Allan's bidding problem: QJ854 Q752 5 742
I don’t understand the votes for 3h. This is down the middle for a mixed raise. I thought the question was whether to bid 4h or randomise with 1nt
Steve Moese's bidding problem: KQT5 AK KJ83 T98
Only at love all, match points
Steve Moese's bidding problem: Q973 5 AJ543 Q98
Why didn’t I bid 3D last round?
