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

Queen of Trumps ask when playing RKCB 1430
Sorry I am old fashioned and play 3014. I was shocked to see a multiple world champion TWICE pass the 1430 queen ask in the Spingold. My partner had been physically ill in the Fast Pairs so I had seen enough bad bridge for the day, At the first break ...
The Club's Coffee-Housing
Ed, surely there must be a rule requiring when to think or not think. Maybe I am thinking of politics.
The Club's Coffee-Housing
I always try to think ahead when I see the dummy. Whether or not I have the queen, I am fully prepared to follow suit by playing either my lowest or my middle card. When declarer gets it right, that is rub of the green.
A Double Standard?
David and Richard, Thank you. I am pleased I got it right on a bridge isse. This time:-)
A Double Standard?
Club rulings are not always right under the Laws. But clubs, not tournaments, are where we get new members. Teaching bridge does not have an ethics/behavior element. There is a long history in learning player events of teaching rather than penalizing under the Laws. Players are taught not to ...
Competition and . . . Rules
Directors at sectionals and regionals in D21 always had a very lenient view in newer player events. They felt these were also events to learn and not to use the rules to gain, but to restore equity. We learned from this. As players progressed the rules became more correctly enforced ...
The 3 word challenge
Best with friends
Why isn't Marty Bergen in the HOF?
Perhaps like Mike Lawrence, Marty does not wish to be in the HOF. The ACBL might nominate him for his generation plus writing his column in the Bulletin plus his playing record.
Competition and . . . Rules
Infractions in clubs are one thing; infractions like this in Regionals/NABCs are not the same. Having a convention card is basic to the game. One is okay in a club, but not so in tournaments.
Bridge Discipline and the IOC
Thanks for the comments and corrections.
