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.

Team mates wanted: Bristol (England) Sunday 21st May
This interferes with anniversary schedule. I suggest asking if Liam and Jasmine might play with you.
TV series "Fargo"
Peg, thanks for having a sense of humor about this. Stealing tricks from opponents is not a felony.
Would you have opened and if so, what now?
Making 2M should be good enough. This is why I bid in the first place. If pard has a club stack and we get them 300 also works well. I recently held 1=1=5=6 and opened a diamond. LHO overcalled 2 Clubs. Left in the negative double holding ...
Ridiculous results, doubled or redoubled
Cat on my lap had me bid 7 Clubs which was a top when the field played 6 Spades. Hideous Hog sent the cat a post card. Last year I did make 6 Spades doubled for 1660 after opening 1 Club with S QJTXX H 9 D --- C KQ987XX. The ...
TV series "Fargo"
Bridge players are often playing in the evening. Use your DVR and record the show. This has been a public service announcement.
TV series "Fargo"
The woman wanna be pro player with black hair. I have asked MN Grandmaster Peg Kaplan if she was the basis for the character. Good start seeing duplicate boards and a regional in progress.
Club Ruling
First sentence says 2D, intended as Michaels, is Undiscussed. This is a major error as we are not permitted to make conventional calls when we have no agreement this is a conventional call. Very bad if partner fields this bid. NS got what they deserved.
ATB - grand slam fiasco from the 1971 Bermuda Bowl
There is hope for me yet! The only like issue I have had in slam bidding when partner had bid out of turn with a 15-17 NT. I was barred from know the bid had been made. We played RKC and when she answered 5C - 0/3, I passed. She ...
Cheating at Scrabble
Not to be rude, but I have never seen Scrabble played at a bridge tournament. We certainly have enough comments on bridge issues. Life is not fair. Alas.
Gee, in a long ago Spingold match one world champion Twice passed the Queen Ask in 1430 RKC. They still recovered and won the event. I was called a jinx the next day. But the player I kibitzed did not pass the Queen ask was my reply. I did ask ...
