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.

Master as a racist term
Richard, I am a Bachelor of Arts yet the Derby library has me married on April 24, 1681. I, fortunately only remember a mother in law for 12 years.
Master as a racist term
While we change some bridge terms, can we also change some bridge rank titles to reflect true bridge advancement. Sectional Master should go to someone who has won an Open Sectional event; it may also include the players on the Sectional Master of the Year List. Regional Master is the ...
BBO Censorship?
I found $15 in Hell, Michigan.
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
In F2F ACBL events I would like a Law which says an alert is illegal if not on both ccs and the offenders are ruled to have bid in an unethical manner. This includes an end of session trip before a C&E committee along with a disqualification. This is ...
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
Several years ago I played in Larry King's Money tour in the stratified section. Or $20 entry while the Open entry was $100. These were individual events. We ALL played the SAYC Yellow Card. So while I may not look at my cc, I can look at the opponents ...
D22FORUM w/John Swanson Final Solvers Panel
Ken, Thanks for publishing me in the 1980s. I even made the front page a couple of times. My Kibitz Kat name tag has a fan who insists I wear it! Come out some day to Hilton Head and we can play.
Gerber: Is it Even Worth It?
Ed, at our age we won't last 25 years. ;-) Maybe that is best!
Gerber: Is it Even Worth It?
@ Ian, Many of us think scoring a slam is good at matchpoints, IMPs, and Board-A-Match even if we can claim easily. I am very proud of my +1660 to -170 comparison in the NA Swiss Teams to this day. A strong jump shift still allows for playing at the game ...
Gerber: Is it Even Worth It?
Thanks Danny and Andy. I ask and I have NEVER gotten an answer even with a director call.
Gerber: Is it Even Worth It?
@ Danny, So what are the different hands which you use for Gerber vs answering the Quantitative 4NT? Is shortness involved? You are a very good player and should have different hand patterns for the different bids. I feel I am entitled to know this at the table when I ask ...
