about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
Not being able to select number of beds is really unacceptable. The availability thing is stupid and unacceptable, but how am I supposed to plan my stay with a roommate if they won't guarantee me two beds? Why would I want to book through this system? Seeing as we ...
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
For a TD in a 199er game or something, absolutely, educate educate educate. If someone is at the point that they're playing against Debbie, certainly they should know better, and I don't think the TD should stop the game to give what might be seen as a very ...
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
Player memo is 100% the way to go. In the short run it will probably not amount to much more than a discussion with the player by the recorder -- which is exactly what you want. Unless they are really egregious, individual instances are not subject to disciplinary action. But in ...
"Hottest" Debates Among Bridge Experts Today?
I think "Is this bid forcing?" and "What kind of signal is this?" questions are the most frequent and interesting debates.
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
Education is part of the job of a recorder (I have done this as the local recorder). I think it's also appropriate for a club director. Unless a TD knows the person involved I don't think doing much educating is appropriate. Something like, "The laws require you to ...
Ed Marzo -- DealMaster Pro Developer
He was incredibly helpful any time I had an issue with or question about his software (which I love). He'll be missed.
Many questions
I'm not sure about whether 4 is forcing, but I lean toward yes, since North could have opened 3/4 opposite a passed partner. Either way, I'm not passing. I think 4, COG, is a better bid now than 4, as it suggests better ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
I don't get it, Steve. North described their agreement. South knew he was heavy, with a very offensive hand. And the 3 bid improves it. No UI, unless South thought the agreement was constructive or invitational, which the OP does not suggest. And even then, does the 4 ...
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
Hard to imagine not bidding 4. Even on a simple LOTT basis, the 3 bid makes it almost certain partner has 4 clubs.
