about me

Have played professionally occasionally the last few years, would be happy to do so more frequently. I normally play locally (CT, NJ, NYC), but would certainly consider travelling, especially to a Nationals or Gatlinburg. Send me a Private Message if interested.

When they double 3NT
Believe the agreement I had with my last partner: Redouble by either side says no help at all, run unless you have a stopper. That means nobody runs except from a redouble.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: KQ984 A76 Q8 QT4
Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't even think of an alternative to pass.
Which agreement set is better, imps if it matters
As such, 4m natural and preemptive would [i]never[/i] be my choice.

Beat me to it...
Nel blu dipinto di blu (Volare)
I'm curious, how much matchpoint difference did the redoubles make?
Forcing to what?
Doesn't really matter with the hand shown, bid 2 and find out what partner intended.
What [i]was[/i] 3NT? Too weak to overcall 2NT? A mispull?
Share your favorite bidding system highlights
"To get a sense at a HIGH level which system families are preferred among better players." One approach to that end would be to look at the systems played at the USBF trials, at the European championships, at the world championships and the like.
Does anyone know what time it is?
One of the regionals was Chicago...
Active Ethics?
While it may superficially look like a bidding problem, it isn't one at all.
