Hi Guys, I am proud to say I know the famous Grossack brothers!

I know Adam has started various bridge clubs in schools as he was growing up. My question is what do you think ACBL can or should do to promote bridge and bring more young players to our game?

FYI A number of years back Mr. Gates was asked to help fund a bridge at schools program. He refused to contribute a single dollar.

Hi Ronald,

Regres was never the problem. Rodwell had me learn it, we played it once in a home BAM party. We scored 22x out of 24. We were planning to use it until ACBL outlawed forcing pass systems. I agree it is not a destructive system.

The problem was the other clones of it with the fertilizer openings. These were most definitely destructive systems. The Aussies and the Kiwis were playing these systems as far back as 1983 Bermuda Bowl. That led to WBF banning forcing pass systems. Regres was a casualty of these other destructive systems. I had nothing to do with these systems being outlawed, I do think it was correct to ban the destructive systems. I believe any attempt to bring back Regres will fail, regardless of my opinion on the subject.

Best, Meck

I am totally used to my comments displeasing ACBL. Nothing new there!

@ Ignacio,

We value the support of all our fans.

1) What you describe is not what is called Meckwell

2) Of course I remember that hand from Bermuda Bowl final in 1981. My redouble showed doubt. A treatment we immediately deposited in the junkyard. LOL

Hi Jeff,

Best thing is to start by showing both of your suits, strength can get sorted out later. The weak-strong idea is totally bogus IMO.

Hi Ben,

Your assessment of our pre-empting style is accurate. We don't like going for big numbers. Before the Vanderbilt we decided to mix it up a bit and get a bit more active. Seemed to work pretty well. Expect we will continue down this path.

Over the years Dr. Frankenstein has come up with unbelievable,truly amazing, methods. Many of these things almost never came up in practice, eventually they found their way to the scrapyard.

Hi Sriram,

We played a lot of kitchen bridge, very simple bidding. They frequently came to tournaments as caddies. Great $$ for them when dad paying all the expenses! When they decided to give up the job and play, Rich Regan was terrific to my boys, played with them, taught them conventions, converted them from kitchen to tournament players. In Long Beach, this 3some teamed with Jim Hawkes and Andy Hurd and won the 0-1500 Spingold!

Gary,

Nothing like you describe occurred. With 4 boards left I did call the director and requested a recorder form right in front of them.I knew then for 100% certainty they were cheats. Fantoni's body language said it all, he looked like the dog who knew he shouldn't have shat on the carpet!

David,

I think your 1st paragraph validates my earlier statement.

Thanks for the kind words!

I agree about the Imitation Game. Benedict as Sherlock Holmes is AWESOME IMO.
