about me

I'm a freelance capitalist, semi-retired software engineer, and sometime professional bridge player. I spend summers in Florida and winters on the Colorado ski slopes. My other interests include the laws of bridge, economics, swing dancing, 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

Lyon Restaurants
Le Sud was good.
Open Lyon Discussion Thread
I started a separate thread for Lyon Restaurants: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/lyon-restaurants/
Open Lyon Discussion Thread
I don't understand your question, Gene. Anyone can post about this to BW at any time. As for the WBF, I'd suggest figuring out which committee is in charge of the area with which you are concerned and contacting them directly. You might want to broach the matter ...
Flying to Lyon? Be prepared. Flying out? Leave many hours or you may miss your flight
Thanks for the heads up! I made it through immigration and customs quickly when I arrived on Monday evening. I'll leave extra time for my departure, though.
Bermuda Bowl RR12: USA2 vs EGYPT
Thanks for the informative report, Eugene!
RR4 Board 30
I would cash the H AK. If all follow, a club to hand and the HQ. If all follow I'll cash the clubs and have several chances. If hearts prove 4-2 then give up a heart. If East has the long heart we'll be able to postpone the ...
Uber at Pearson Airport - Pro tip for the Summer NABC
Don't know. I'm staying in a condo for my first few days here, so I didn't check for a hotel shuttle.
USBF seeding. Total PP's vs. Deep Bye PP's
Yes, I'm bothered by that too, but I wasn't asked to vote on it! In fact, if I recall our discussion from years ago, I opposed awarding any PPs to teams who earned them with ineligible players.
USBF seeding. Total PP's vs. Deep Bye PP's
Jan, I understand that it won't pose a problem since we seed only within bye level, but the apparent incongruity is why I voted the way I did. I think Peter said something similar, but probably more clearly.
USBF seeding. Total PP's vs. Deep Bye PP's
Got it, Sam. I understand your point now. I still prefer to seed by deep bye points, though. It seems incongruous that a team with a bye to the QF could have a higher seed than a team with a bye to the SF.
