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.

Forgive and forget?
Eugene, Please let me know if I must edit since I got a warning. Happy to comply.
Forgive and forget?
Boye, This is the only game where the rules allow disruption without penalty. Being slow once or twice a session in pairs is one thing. Last year the pair sending me new opponents was 2minutes to 6 minutes behind all 13 rounds. They were allowed to continue in the event ...
The 5 level belongs to: __________
Jim, Your current partner, Richard Pavlicek, should comment as he had a friendly dispute with the late, great Ed Manfield who wrote the 5 level belongs to the opponents. Richard allowed sometimes bidding at the 5 level is right. ;-)
2C-2D-jump in 2-way new minor forcing (XYZ)
I disagree with the rebid of 2 Clubs. You hold 6 Spades with no loser as partner has at least 2. Feel free to correct me.
Lyon Restaurants
Can you order an emergency meal or two from Chez Panisse? ;-) BTW I was given a tour of the kitchen for 50 years of cooking. When I was 4 I fired up a coal stove and fried an egg sandwich. Home alone but since I did not clean up I ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
I find some definitions of long suits and few high cards outside the suit to be more preemptive than descriptive of a strong hand. There are rebiddable hands to show 5-5 s with strength or long, strong single suited hands. I have seen a lot of 2 Club openers which ...
Who Will Win the Venice Cup?
Hoping a friend will win her first WBF gold medal. Of the great players I have played with in Pro-Ams or by luck online, my friend is the only one not yet to win at the WBF. It is about time she did.

No other comments with 98 votes in? Okay, USA1 is a legendary team for the ages.
Cell Phone Penalty
Donald, Thanks. The NAP coordinator told me I could not call for a committee. The Laws presume we make errors such lead out of turn, insufficient bid. They do not guarantee a fair game and equal time to play. They do not address failure to move promptly or delay of ...
Cell Phone Penalty
Joe, The D7 NAP B had the pair next to me play late ALL 13 rounds and was not disqualified for this extreme disruption. There was a director call by me for 12 consecutive rounds. I would have preferred a cell phone issue. When the penalty causes you to lose ...
