Today's Bridge: Bruce was our fourth, and while he made a few mistakes, most of them weren't disastrous, which is a bad learning aid. I had to play a 2S opener with S Q-J-9-x-x-x H A-J-x D K C x-x-x facing S K-6 H x-x D 10-9-8-x-x-x-x C A-x or so. I ducked the opening club lead and won the heart return, then led the king of diamonds. It held. So I crossed to the ace of clubs, ruffed a diamond, ruffed a club, and ruffed a second diamond when LHO turned up with the last one. That was six tricks in the bank, so I led a spade toward the lone king, drawing the ace. LHO's heart won, and he followed with a club, and I really should have ruffed with the nine and cashed the top two spades to see whether anyone would throw away the king of hearts, even though it was the only suit I hadn't shown out of. Instead, I threw the jack of hearts on the club and claimed the last three on the free finesse. Dan H. (my partner) got stuck in a doomed 2D on a 6-1 spade split and impeccable defense, and he left in a double of a 2S overcall that I'd intended for reopening - fortunately, he was on point with his defense and we set that by one.

It wasn't quite as tough to get to work on time as I thought it would be, although I made lunch the evening before - I didn't have time to do that tonight. My guest made a delicious coating for our salmon as well as asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, and then we needed to do some shopping to get a few things we'd failed to pick up over the weekend. That didn't take up the entire evening as such, but I didn't get around to making a wrap. It shouldn't take too long tomorrow, and I can make it while the griddle heats up.

Signature

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
