about me

I'm a freelance capitalist, retired software engineer, Lindy Hopper, and sometime professional bridge player. I spend winters on the ski slopes and the rest of the year in NYC or traveling. My other interests include the laws of bridge, economics, global warming (I'm a skeptic), and Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. Edgar Kaplan is my all-time bridge hero.

Country
United States of America

Senior Conditions of Contest Approval VOTE
Per the comments in the seeding discussion, I'd love to see some way of equalizing the seeding potential between those who have been eligible for the event for years and those newly eligible. Otherwise, the latter will tend to be under-seeded, disadvantaging both them and those unlucky enough to ...
The time has come: Senior USBC Seeding
I'd be happy to see your argument, Chris, or Jeff's.
The time has come: Senior USBC Seeding
Two events being equal length does not mean that they run equally true to form. BAM events can distinguish between teams more reliably with fewer boards than IMP events. So extending the RR to three days would not give it as much predictive power as the Reisinger. Granted, the Reisinger ...

Institution of a World e-Bridge Championship delegating to the Management Committee the definition of a project to be submitted to the approval of the Executive Council." The WBF Management Committee members are listed here: http://www.worldbridge.org/governance/management-committee/
Priorities for the WBF - Followup
Here's a report of the decisions taken by the Executive Council in Wuhan: http://www.worldbridge.org/2019/09/20/decisions-taken-by-the-executive-council/ It was posted expeditiously, on September 20, shortly after our meetings concluded. I'm still traveling and will have more to say after I make it home next ...
Remembering My Dad
I played with Johnny for a couple months in the summer of 1978, when I'd been an ACBL member for a year. He was a great guy - Richard Lessler introduced us at the Oakland Bridge Center. Johnny had quit bridge around 1940 and returned to the game when he ...
Evita in Wuhan
Victor Hugo surely won't mind. I only wish my French were good enough to read his work in its original language. Maybe one day…
Wuhan Restaurants
Was not on my radar. I'll go if you recommend it! It's across the river from where we're playing.
Bridge on Twitch
Sounds like something you should consider yourself, Chris!
Evita in Wuhan
The performances will be in English, with subtitles in Chinese.
