about me

Living as I do inthe Netherlands, I am a member of the european bridgecommunity.


My modest bridge-abilities are expressed playing in what in America is probably regional competition (hard enough for me)


I was hooked on this game as a student and have been playing ever since (when moving the first research-point is what bridgeclubs are in the area)


I have 4 kids in their twenties who are more and more selfreliant and selfsupporting. I enjoy the process of letting them go their own way but still supporting them very much.


Next to my passion for this game I also enjoy science fiction, crosswords, other puzzles and mindgames and of course supporting my kids in their endeavours

Stephen Tu's bidding problem: --- AJ9xx KJTxxx Ax
I've bid my 6-5. Partner may need to know my -control to place the contract. Note: in my book 2 agrees 's as he did not bid an immediate 2 showing better 's. However: I would have another problem as we open this hand differently ...

Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: A86 JT4 A8 KQ732
What's the upper limit of a 'light' preempt?
David Carlisle's bidding problem: A T65 AKJ3 AQT65
since the opps showed 2 suits: could partner be offering a -stop and not a -stop?
David Parsons's bidding problem: 942 98763 Q KJT9
I'm the doubler, BUT: I have agreements about this kind of sandwich-bids

About selection amongst 10 champion pairs can class be proven?
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: xx QJT9 AJT9xx x
with the agreements given I think X and then 4 over 3 describes this hand as I don't think this is a full GF opposite a 12-14 NT
Which card do you play at trick 1?
I used my own methods before I saw "standard methods": low encouraging :-)
Brigitta Fischer's bidding problem: Kxx KQ Q AKQ9xxx
This type of hand is one of the reasons we distributed different handtypes over our opening-bids and customised the followups. I can tell partner that I have a semiGF onesuiter in clubs. We might get too high in 3NT, but opposite the right ace and the spade queen I have ...
How do you rule?
System forget by East? In NL normal to play (as added in the description) that 3 is a good weak 2 in 's. In that case East has no reason whatsoever to bid NT, which probably lacks a -stop. So my conclusion is that East thought that 3 ...
