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.

Blue Over Red Boards

Very well written!
Repeat Locations for Nationals
Steve M, I know about Detroit as I was born there. Buddy H, thanks for bringing up the warm south. We can see this is a difficult taks.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
We never had a problem going to Asbury Park NJ in our early years. But we were then not a truly across the nation organization. I would like that 2 of the 3 NABCs be at sites we find are popular with our members. We can also consider changes in ...
The value of videos
I have observed in kibitzing that players often try hard to alert when screens are used. I remember the late Russ Eleblad being very active to his opponent in this respect.

I guess there will be more Appeal Without Merit penalties as well as directors giving Procedural Penalties when the videos are reviewed. It also will teach players to better follow the alert procedure. We players often get very informal in competition when a formal mindset is much better. Very good ...
Comments please, on this 2D opening
Ray, feel free to write a post yourself. Stop this trolling. Ray, your comments are not appropriate. Comment on the bid or not is the question posed. It is posed politely.
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
My small number of BRQs never diminishes even after I play, using the term very loosely, in the BRP. Ed, feel free to play under my player number. ;-)
Bidding this Slam?
Offside 3-0 break or offside stiff king and play for the drop rather than hook the jack come to mind.
