about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Donald M: "Always willing to be corrected." You're wrong about that!
Unauthorized Information - when do you need to pass and when can you bid?
Andy B: That's all very nice and logical. But isn't it possible that some lesser player, who might not have thought of redouble without the slow pass odf 2, now redoubles? Basically saying 'Hey! You thought of bidding over 2! Well, I have a maximum for ...
1!S (4!H) 4NT
Paul: 4N then 5 is a Grand Slam Try in the minor partner bid
An Absurd ACBL Procedure
Mike B: This is not about cheating. It's about avoiding UI. I have long thought that this procedure (going over to the table where your teammates are playing boards you are just about to play) is insane (not to mention weird). We go to all sorts of trouble in ...
BW 2/1: Splinters
Unless getting into further artificiality, I suggest this: Splinters can be a minimum. However, if minimum, they must be slam suitable.
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I have no idea what legal effect it would have (or even should have), but maybe being armed with an affidavit signed by hundreds of World and National Champions saying something such as 'I have seen multiple (enough?) hands to be connvinced that this pair could not have achieved the ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2NT Rebid
The advantage of "best of evils" is obvious - especially in an unfamiliar partnership, But the disadvantage - especially in a partnership - is equally obvious; partner never really KNOWS anything. Doesn't know 6-card for 2M; doesn't know stoppers for 2N; doesn't know 4-card support for 3m. It's nice ...
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: --- KQ32 K96 KJ8753
What if partner DID NOT take 5-10 seconds - but doubled in 0-1 second because he knows that's where he wants to play? And what if you then pass?
BW 2/1: Opener's 2NT Rebid
Frances: The other option is to play you can raise with any 3-card holding (assuming you treat side xxx as a stopper) John: It's a funny thing about xxx. Facing Qxx it's sort of more difficult for them to cash the first 5 tricks when the xxx declares ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2NT Rebid
Let's say we consider that anything more than Jx is a stopper (so Qx and xxx qualify as a stopper). Assuming we are not going to get into artificiality or 3-card suits (and, even then, you have other issues), the question that really ought to be asked is this ...
