Today's Bridge: Ken and I took on Jerry and Dan H., and while they got the first shot with a 2NT, made exactly, but the rest of the day was ours. Ken found a 4S, and then I probably underbid a hand - I had 12 points and 5-4-4-0 distribution, and the opponents were bidding clubs. I simply raised Ken's diamonds instead of cue-bidding the clubs, so we stopped in 3D and made 5. I finished the rubber with a goulash - I had H 3-2 D A-Q-10-7-6-5-4-2 C A-10-x, so I opened 3D and played it. Jerry led the king of hearts into Ken's S A-Q-J-x-x-x H A-x-x-x-x C Q-x. I let it ride, and he switched to a low spade. The queen won, and I threw a low club. I probably should have ruffed a spade and led a low heart toward the ace, but I decided to lead the ace, and Jerry ruffed low to return another spade. I put in the jack, and Dan ruffed with the king, so I overruffed. With two diamonds gone, I figured it was safe enough to lead a low diamond. Jerry won with the eight while Dan threw a heart. A third spade came back to the ace, and I threw my other losing club, then crossed to the ace and conceded the jack of trump to make the contract. Finally, Jerry opened 1C-1D-1NT, and Ken poked his hand in with 2S, which was the final contract. I had a little bit of support, and certainly not enough to suggest another suit, so we made it exactly.

Today's Work: Things were a lot more complicated than I expected, but I got somewhere in the end. I'll poke at it more tomorrow to find out whether it's where I need to be.

I set my alarm later this morning than it was previously, and got to work right about on time. The extra sleep might be helping me.

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!")
