about me

During daytime I am a theoretical mathematician, working at the University of Amsterdam. I live in Amsterdam with Meike Wortel and our 1-year old son Lars. 

I learned to play bridge in the United States; first in Michigan, and later on BBO. I've been back in the Netherlands since 2009, apart from some time spent in Oslo. 

I currently play in the Dutch league for Witte Huis 3, in the second division (which is called first division).

When NOT to explore a 4-4 fit?
The fact that I also wrote that 5332 opposite 4333 with a 54 fit favors 3NT could have made it less surprising for you Michael. As for 4333 opposite 5332, I did use more restrictions on my simulations, tying to take into account that second hand passed, etc. This could ...
A Slim Chance
I didn't call it extra values. I called it a maximum, and I call myself Han.
A Slim Chance
I am not sure I am convinced by your arguments Steve. It is not said exactly how strong 2H was. If the agreement is 6-10, the west hand is absolutely maximal. On the auction partner could have been considerably stronger. Switch both red jacks with the corresponding kings, giving all ...
When NOT to explore a 4-4 fit?
I spent some time investigating whether 3NT or 4M is better in these situation, and if I recall correctly found that 3NT is better at both pairs and imps. In fact, with 5332 opposite 4333 it is also better to play 3NT, even when you have a 5-4 fit. The ...
Calling all Mathematicians: Specious Reasoning in Probability?
Thanks for the confirmation Stuart.
Calling all Mathematicians: Specious Reasoning in Probability?
David, allow me to think out loud here, even though that usually ends up with me looking very stupid. Suppose as you say that east drops a random card on the floor, and it happens to be a non-diamond. If east had 3 diamonds the chance of it being a ...
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: T2 T92 KJ62 KQJ2
Certainly the given hand seems to suit your methods very well. I would be happy to bid 2S showing constructive values with both minors. It will not only work well when partner has a balanced hand with 4-5 diamonds, but will be especially effective when partner is unbalanced. In general ...
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: T2 T92 KJ62 KQJ2
Although your picture keeps smiling, your tone seems a little agitated. Maybe I argue a little too fanatically, but that is not because I think that your suggested treatment is poor, not at all. I merely thought that you stated your case too strongly. I didn't compute the odds ...
When NOT to explore a 4-4 fit?
Why do you say that 4333 opposite 4432 should often play in the 4-4 fit?

Mathematicians would put declarer in the south seat.
