Lots of people learning lots of things

Today's Bridge: We started with a grossly underbid 2NT, but I didn't want to jump to game and risk missing something. I finished with a hard-fought 1NT (with A-K-x-x of spades facing J-9-x-x, the queen fell, so I didn't need to fight for a trick in Anna's diamond suit), then put Brent in 3NT with eight tricks on top and the eventual heart for the ninth. In the final hand, Anna opened 1NT, and with S J-x H A-K-Q-J D A-K-9-x-x-x C x opposite a passed hand, I opted to overcall 2D instead of doubling. (The chances of finding a good heart fit are remote.) Anna persisted with 2NT, and while I figured 3D was a likely make, I just doubled. Sadly, I didn't dare lead a low diamond to Brent's Q-x-x, which would have been worth off five, but after I cashed my tricks, he still got the queen, and Anna had to lead up to his king of spades because there were no entries to dummy at all. Since we could only make 4D, I think 300 was a great score for the hand.

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!")
