about me

I began playing bridge in the Los Angeles area in 1995. I attended my first regional and joined the ACBL in the spring of 1996. I played a lot on OKbridge. I met my late husband, Charley James, in 1998 at the Reno Regional and we began playing together a few weeks later. We played throughout 1999 and won about 300 points together that year. 

We built a nice system and played it for over 18 years. 12-14NT, 2/1, lots of fun gadgets. Some that probably no one else plays or would want to play, but they fit in well with the whole package. I'm starting to write it up as we never kept much in the way of notes. 

In the last few months I have played with about 24 new partners. It's very strange after playing with one partner and one system for so long.

Hi! I’m interested in playing. I only have 3300 so I understand if you want to find someone more experienced. I have 31 blue ribbon Qs.
Partner wanted for Events in SF Nationals
I am looking for a partner for December 4th, 5th, and 6th. Unfortunately only Regional events are available. I’m a Gold Life Master. I played with my Diamond Life Master husband for many years but he passed away two years ago. I had to relearn how to play with ...
Partner for today
Thank you for asking! I have a partner. However, she wasn’t feeling well this morning and if she isn’t well Sunday morning she will take the day off. So if that happens, I will check back with you in case you are still looking.
Teammates for Roth needed
Enjoyed meeting you the other day. Good luck in the Roth!
Wagar or regional event partner
I need games all the rest of the week. I’m on a 5-man team in tomorrow’s daylight Swiss so potentially open for something else.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AQ75 Q96 KJ4 765
I guess If I were playing with Charley I would bid 5S. He would be looking for first or second round control of hearts, which we don’t have.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AQ75 Q96 KJ4 765
I don’t know enough about playing a limited opener system. Does 5D suggest partner is shapely with a maximum? Or looking to sacrifice? Would it have been bid without the interference? Was forcing pass on? Etc. I’ll be interested to see what other people say.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: 9875 AJ84 A842 8
My partner didn’t double so it passed out at 5C. I wanted to but South could have all the rest of the points.

And it works as an advance cuebid for diamonds.
