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

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Declare 6NT
At the table I'd try: Take in hand Cash 2 clubs and run the 's, I am assuming they split no worse than 4-2, coming down to: 5 KT - KT opposite KJ A52 - - Now cash the K, throwing ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: T 743 AKQ82 AKT7
I think you need an agreement which bid is "neutral" after FSF. This handpattern is not uncommon, so the agreement should contain which 'lie' you can tell
Good contract?
my own bidding sequence may induce a -lead (solving 1 suit). 1 - 1 2NT - 3 (checkback) 3 - some technical stuff to establish 's) answer - RKC for 's 5 (3) - 5 (Q-ask) 6 (yes + K) - 6. I would probably take ...
Emanuel Evacic's bidding problem: J972 J983 A974 2
5 :-) thought about that before deciding to bid 4.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: KQT 98 AKxx AQJx
Hi Merijn, I play 2NT as minors here and X as 's + minor. I agree with Richard that 2NT as 's + minor is probably better, but we've been playing this for years now and other changes in the system take precedence for the memory-load.
Your thought process?
I 'remember' suit patterns and hand patterns, since they always add up to 13. the one I have a hard time with is voids; for some reason 544 or something like that is what I tend to forget
What do you use 3N and 4m for?
3NT as a (semi-)solid minor WITH a side stop. Made possible because we play a version of transfer-pre-empts
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: Q2 KQ54 KJ42 Q63
would he not have balanced with 2NT then?
How many spades?
how about: 1 - X - 2 - 2 3 - 4 - that should imply 4's, assuming of course (which I do) that 3 would be a one-round-force (otherwise he should have started with 2-overcall and then a later X)
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: 8 AJT97653 K A85
Dorn, just my opinion: the hand your partner expects starts with a double and follows up with 4. The direct 4 is this kind of hand; the one that already needs some help to make it but is not interested in other denominations.
