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.

Should bridge go green?
The study found this was true for expert bridge players but not for expert chess players. While I think bridge and chess require roughly similar amounts of intellectual effort bridge has many more facets. For instance, chess players do not have to deal with hidden information. Bridge players have much ...
Should bridge go green?
An alternative to stifling discussion, Richard, would be to not read the thread. Instead, we could try to find a bridge connection for every post, but that could get ugly too! "You know, there's a reason we have more Fall NABCs in Orlando than in Winnipeg…"
Should bridge go green?
You may well. You didn't cite any evidence, though. Most of the public discussion of the topic has been remarkably evidence-free, or has centered around points that are not only of limited relevance but have been demonstrated to be false, such as the so-called hockey stick or the imaginary ...
Stop the Stop Card
Did just that, to no avail. Perhaps it's a scam site. More likely it's running on auto-pilot because the proprietor thought he could turn a four-hour work week into a zero-hour work week.
Equal Level Conversion
Thanks for posting! I'm always impressed by how many points you can find in a deal that appears straightforward at first. North's 3 at the other table seems dangerous. 2 would be normal and it looks as though it will make here, even on a trump ...
Requesting Comments On Green Aces
How is this a problem, Ray? I ask with one KC and discover that partner has 1 or 4. I sign off in five, hoping that we make it if partner has only one. When he has four he bids on, showing the trump queen and/or a King in ...
The 2017 Laws of Duplicate Bridge are around the corner
The new laws have been approved by the WBF Executive Council and can be found here: http://www.worldbridge.org/the-wbf/by-laws/2017-laws-of-duplicate-bridge/ Thanks to everyone who chimed in! To my mind the lawbook is substantially improved as a result.
Stop the Stop Card
Thanks, Ed! Alas, the rolcogames.com SSH certificate has expired. I ran a Google search and found some 10-second timers on Alibaba, but most vendors have a minimum order size of 500. One had a minimum order of a single unit. I tried to send an inquiry, proposing to purchase ...
Stop the Stop Card
Link for the timers, please! Some opponents will find it obnoxious, but I know from experience that TDs will feel put upon if I call the TD every time LHO fails to wait after my skip.
Stop the Stop Card
I agree with Randy and Nigel. Some years ago I submitted a proposal to put their suggestion back into effect: https://tameware.com/adam/bridge/laws/stop_card.html I don't think TD's have a reasonable chance of enforcing the regulation unless they have an objective means of determining ...
