Today's Bridge: I was really disappointed that Brent passed my 2NT jump with more than enough power to go for game, but we were wide open in hearts and the diamond finesse that was my only hope for a ninth trick was off, so I had to cash my eight and call it done. The opponents made 2C with an overtrick and no play for game, and then I declared 4H. Raymond tried to ruff a club with a spade, then ruffed my spade lead and led a spade back. At one point, I tried to sluff a diamond from dummy on a club lead, but the opponents caught that, naturally. The final hand was S 4-2 H x-x D Q-x-x C A-K-Q-9-x-x facing S J-10-9-8-6 H J-x-x-x D A C J-x-x. I played in 3C over a 2D interference bid. The ace won the opening diamond lead, so I started with the jack of spades, hoping to set them up eventually. Ryan went right up with the ace and cashed the king before switching to a low diamond. The queen held, so I tossed a heart from dummy and led my last diamond to Raymond's king and a low ruff. I ruffed another spade with the ace, but they split 3-3, so I led the king of clubs and another to the jack. When that suit also split, I was able to throw my hearts on the spades for two overtricks.

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!")
