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

Bob Heller: ACBL Distict 7 March-April News
I once told late ACBL President Jim Kirkham that no matter what is changed there is always someone to complain with a letter to the Bulletin. I mentioned bidding boxes and someone complained about crippled hands. I have never known a director to ever require a player's medical condition ...
Shi and Granovetter Win Women's Pairs
Great win for both excellent players. Nice to have met both of them.
Consequences of Forgetting an Agreement
I'd say so. We are expected to know our methods as we did agree to play them.
Why would anyone want to do this?
When it works partner is forgiving. Deliberately bidding wrongly as to your agreement means your partner will soon be your ex-partner. I recently played with someone who agreed to something and never bid the agreement. Ex: RHO 1H, me 2H Michaels, LHO Pass, partner 3 Diamonds holding Kxx in spades ...
Future Claims Procedures - if proposed 2017 laws are accepted.
Will this end my opponents saying they still don't understand when I move small cards from dummy and lead up to the high honors which are good? ;-)
A tale of woe
I was kidding, guys. But I kept a great poker face. ;-)
I'm Still Alive
Larry, I hope Maria was not confused.
A tale of woe
It is always better to lead the ace from your AQ combination.
