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

Montecatini restaurant recommendations?
Bill, you don't need to be good, just to shown up and pay the entry fee! And I will try to make it to Saul's the next time I'm in the Bay Area...
Montecatini restaurant recommendations?
Pellegrini's was excellent and they were able to seat a large party at short notice.
Montecatini restaurant recommendations?
Thanks for the suggestions. I wish I had time to try them all!
FLEISHER is USA2
I agree with Georgiana, allowing multiple teams per country would improve the European (closed) Championships. Just as the US is perhaps underrepresented in world championship play, strong bridge-playing European countries are under-represented in the European Championships. Since I no longer live in Europe I must leave this decision to the ...
FLEISHER is USA2
I'd like to see the Bermuda Bowl and Olympiad be as strong as possible and I'd welcome changes that would lead towards that end. One possibility for the latter would be to allow multiple entrants per country.
FLEISHER is USA2
One reason Europe has done well is that it is allowed to enter more teams. In the Bermuda Bowl, Europe has six or seven teams to the USA's two. In the Olympiad, Europe is allocated 40 or so teams to the USA's one. Given these odds, it's ...
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.
