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.

A long time ago the ACBL had a showdown meeting with Al Roth about his methods. As a result we now have convention cards. As time passed we marked in red alertable calls and now transfer calls. From this discussion we still have a long road to go. I alert ...

I understand and I do not like this either. I did a player memo on slow play against a noted Florida player. Seems after I loudly asked for a refund after 3 consecutive slow rounds, he and his partner miraculously played on time the rest of the session. Like flipping ...

So refreshing to see Active Ethics. Thanks all.
Who's the Offender?
The rules do require us to count our cards before looking at them.
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
I recall a few D21 players who shopped, 'er played in many unit qualifiers to figure out which unit final was easiest for them.
The late chorus girl Helen Sobel raised her skirt above her knee when she had a tough guess on which way to finesses for a queen. The guy who looked did not have the queen. So much for superstition when you can remove the guess. ;-)
@ ED The rule was instituted after frequent Roth-Stone shenanigans in failure to sit causing numerous director calls and forming ad hoc committees from players in the session [!!!] to force them to sit. They tried to figure out which opponent was most likely to be upset by changing seats. We like ...
I like sitting West so I can lead to South.
