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

Saul's on Shattuck? I am not good enough to play in those European events. So I suggest a domestic restaurant.
The Worst Convention Ever
I voted with the plurality on Step Responses to 2 Clubs. The bid takes up lots of room and then you waste a round of bidding counting aces and kings. Might be okay for 6NT bids, but I often bid suit slams.
The Worst Convention Ever
I get hugged when I meet Shannon at a tournament. That is a much better reason to play it than those who play MUD, Stolen Bid, etc have.
The Worst Convention Ever
Peg! Al Roth loved the minors and bid 1 club with 4-4 in the minors to prove it. But then when he died I asked a guy with a bridge website if he would ave a Roth poll. "What for? All the correct answers would have to be. 'What's ...

I always enjoyed Frank Vine articles. Cornelius Coldbottom stories really reflect the truth of bridge.

@ Don and Jan The late Kibitz Kat, formerly of Oakland CA, obtained membership by popular subscription. He bid a grand slam which caused the guy whose lap he sat on to win by 1/2 matchpoint that night. His opponents chipped in for his card. Why not? He bid better ...

The thought that the ACBL can bring a nationals not only to your home town, but into your very home is unique. In other fields of competition, we must travel to a specific venue and stay in a hotel. Saves a lot of money for players and the ACBL. Good ...
