about me

Am 47 years old. Have been playing competitive bridge for about 15 years. Started bridge about 30 years back, but work took priority. Was a software engineer for 17 years. Worked at Motorola, Microsoft and Intuit. Retired from the profession about ten years back, and have spent most of the time trying to discover myself. 


Morten's visit to India in Feb 2017, coupled with the enthusiasm of the children from Raibidpura, the village with the highest density of bridge players in the world, for the game of bridge acted as catalysts for me to start my second innings. And of course,  Amaresh's spirit and Simon Stocken's positivity played a big role too.


My life mission now is education through bridge. I am appalled at the current education system in India, and I think bridge at schools can provide a breather to the children, if taught the right way. 


Can hold my cards in national level tournaments. Visualisation is one of my greatest strengths. And match points my favourite format as I like to take risks. I believe in hard work off the table when playing serious bridge.

After a game force 2, it may be wrong to assume a reverse as partner may have planned a 2 rebid on 1 or 1N

3 showing 4 and 5 intending to play in 4 if partner bids 3nt.

Stolen Cue
If double is penalty in the first case, and you pass when you do not have a stopper or a penalty, what does partner do with Qx Akx Qxx JTxxx on your pass? Is partner's double now penalty?
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: --- AJT93 AKJ72 J32
2N, assuming good-bad is an option. 3 would be a bigger hand
