about me

Basically a club player who gets to a nationals every other year. Very good slam bidder. Hideous Hog himself sent a postcard to my cat for helping me bid a grand slam which won that night by 1/2 of a match point!  Won 2 world wide bidding contests.  Greatest compliment was opponent Grant Baze tell partner Kyle Larsen, "He's playing the Hell out of this hand!"  I had only played 3 tricks.  This was an unforgettable score of 7 1/2 match points.

Country
United States of America

Zero Tolerance can work!
A long time ago a director told me the game runs best when we play by the rules. This really works. Bad behavior is covered in the proprieties which are part of the Laws. The bad thing in the Laws is there are NO rules to guarantee players a fair ...

Ed, waat will get payers to play on time? No other competitive sport/activity allows such event disruption without penalty. We are competing and allow other players to impair our ability to fairly compete. What is so wrong when the wrongdoers pay the penalty? When they find their score goes ...

Ray, the game would suffer without the bad jokes. Thanks for reading the post
Leave ACBL?
Randy, slow play is a tactic which is easily cured. I demanded of a famed slow pair ahead of me a full refund for not allowing full playing time. Like turning a light switch they played on time the final 10 of 13 rounds. That caused me to do a ...
Leave ACBL?
The ACBL could modernize IT and tournament procedures. Competition means EQUAL playing times for all players, pairs, and teams for all playing rounds. Barcoded membership cards for entries and connected to a seeding program. Entries could be billed and paid online. Issuing entry seating can wait for entries to close ...
