I am a college drop-out (I think you know why) who has been
a fan of this game for 51 of my 68 years. I first heard/saw of you in ‘75(I believe) in Syracuse-at a District GNT play-off.
I had nothing to do that weekend, so went up w/ my friend to support him in his quest in a District Final.
His opponents were not fond of kibitzers, and he suggested I watch a ’interesting pair' from Columbus, OH, an elderly gentleman and a VERY young kid. Of course that was you. I believe it was 2 days.
In those days, I played rarely and knew enough to watch Barry Crane at Nationals. Your manner was outstanding, as always it has been. My “friend” was Don Probst. Years later, when he would ask you a bidding question, you would answer it w/ “Ya gotta follow the bouncing ball, Don” Always remembered that, Jeff.
Thanx for you and Eric's ethics and world greatness.

blessings, Bill Smith

Mark, if you remember 45 years ago club games, I made a pretty-complete study of the Binghamton club games. I concluded NO player, or pair were actively trying to ‘cheat’, or even “consciously” guilty of Edgar's ‘Old Black Magic’. Oh yeah, a few pair of LOLs were consistently, blatently doing it, but nobody cared,-their era had no problem with it, and they didn't even realized when they were doing it. The case w/ this hand is pretty mild, as “going against the field” is a common enough matchpoint tactic IMO. I agree with the commenters who concluded to ‘forget it’.

I traveled to the ‘89 Chicago Summer Nationals, about 5 days before my partner(and boss), so I decided to kibbitz some, and caddy some. Jackie ran the “Caddyshack”……. I had a great time caddying(at age 40)and Jackie WAS like a Mom.
I came-in the first day my partner arrived, and told her we were leading the LM Pairs. She was shocked I had been her caddy the past 3 days. She wanted to give me some ’extra' money, but I refused.
A fine a lady as the ACBL has ever had. Good-bye, Jackie–we love(d) you!

I am so happy for Glenn and his team, he deserves this win
as much as anyone I can think of in ACBL-land.

As of this weekend, Roland discovered his problem–His microphone ‘aerial’ I believe, needed to be adjusted, and it was, with the help of someone who had the technical knowledge. I listened to him Saturday, and he came across loud and clear! Oh glory be……… Only problem is David Bird won't be able to tease him any more!
