about me

Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Emerald Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Vanderbilt Unpopularity?
There was a time when there were routinely over 100 entries in the Spinderbilt. With the advent of the mini-Spinderbilts and 10K KOs and swisses, the main event has gotten smaller. I don't perceive that to be a problem. Anyone can still enter the main event, but even if ...
Open Email to ACBL CEO
Responding on BW to well presented questions about matters of interest to the general bridge population should not present a problem. When questions are presented and there is no response, that is when there is a problem. The questions here are not "When did you stop beating your wife?" Rather ...
Fourth suit after XYZ
@Gabor: Sorry, what you are discussing is not XYZ as far as I can determine from a number of sources.
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
And it has finally shown up on my personal list of results on ACBL Live. My team did not qualify for the finals. It seems that if one did not make the overall rankings, the results did not appear on the personal list of results until now.
Fourth suit after XYZ
It is an XYZ situation because the auction started 1X-1Y-1Z (in this case, 1-1-1). If you mean how do you play in a final contract of 2? That is not possible in any method that I know. However, in XYZ, you can play a final contract ...
Fourth suit after XYZ
In the XYZ auction, I would bid 3 with the "punt" rather than 2. No need to go out of your way to misdescribe the hand in a game forcing auction.
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
Philly and the surrounding areas are not normally bothered too much by snow. However, if you ever drove the very narrow streets of South Philadelphia you would know how a few inches of snow could paralyze that portion of the city. On a typical South Philadelphia street there is enough ...
What is the meaning of this double?
Once in a district GNT swiss qualifying match my very aggressive opponents bid 2 - 3 by me - 4 and my partner looking at the AKQJ of hearts (I kid you not) and some other cards bid 6 which duly went down 1. When he tabled the ...
Fourth suit after XYZ
Natural. You are in a game forcing auction. I would expect 4315 or 4306 (the latter with poor clubs).
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
It is all a matter of perspective. I am sure that a snowfall that would paralyze Atlanta would only be a minor inconvenience in Philly and to you hearty Minnesotans it would be "Snow? Did it snow?" By the way, the storm on the opening Wednesday of the NABC was ...
