about me
While I am quite busy with many pro bono bridge activities, bridgeblogging, several bridge magazine bidding panels, and personal activities regarding trying to deal with the ACBL in trying to suggest to them what their responsibilities should be toward making bridge a better game, along with various relationships between the ACBL (Zone 2) and the WBF along with exchanging ideas with the ITT.

Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
The problems to which you allude, and before videos came onto the scene, or at least, were not thought affordable and that, together with lawyers (both the ACBL and the WBF) were very much against acting affirmatively against accusations of cheating without concrete proof, and even much worse, to non-bridge ...
Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
Lars, Your statement about me not caring about trying to stop rampant bridge cheating nor any form of it, is equivalent to saying that neither Superman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes, Dick Tracy nor Elliott Ness (for real) were depicted as characters who were not interested in eliminating all phases of crime ...
Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
Hi Ian, Thanks for your expressed and well-written plea .. claiming that strong pass advocates have done their review, homework and enough of a positive presentation to deserve better, enough to allow it to "burst" rather than just enter the scene for tacit recognition. In effect, it has (to use a ...
Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
Hi Peter, Thanks for the honest assessment of your views, your overall understanding of world bridge history, and, of course, your opinion of what positives a strong pass system brings to the game. Also your opinion as to possible contingencies of only allowing it to officially being played at the ...
Understanding the Logic and Merit of Strong Pass!
After carefully reading recent major endorsements in favor of allowing Strong Pass and accommodating fertilizer to infiltrate the highest level of world bridge, it is apparent there is an elephant in the room. Thus ..... a historical update appears to be in order so that due diligence can be exercised in ...
How Old Were You?
Hi Joey, Perhaps in 1964 you should have told Murielle you were going to Johns Hopkins Hospital to have your appendix removed instead of a NY Regional. If so, you may have won more Silver points, however if the ACBL would have learned of your unethical falsehood they may have ...
ACBL Chief Executive Tenders Resignation
Until very recently the BOD meetings were over by Thursday night, at least for the ones who had planned to play on Friday. However for the ones who made bridge dates after they arrived at the site, many then tended to ACBL business on the first weekend of the tournament ...
ACBL Chief Executive Tenders Resignation
Playing tournament bridge has often been described as perhaps the only somewhat popular pastime which enables all levels of players to actually compete face-to-face against the so-called best players in the country or even world. Why then, wouldn't it be thought logical that those best players should be at ...
ACBL Chief Executive Tenders Resignation
Hi Ed & Steve, No doubt Ed your story about being asked up to the Presidential Suite and Steve's views of what it takes to be a competent administrator are, at least IMO right on, but those sometimes twists in life are not necessarily an indication of anything special in ...
ACBL Chief Executive Tenders Resignation
Yu, I'll be giving away my advanced age by commenting that back in the day while growing up in San Antonio, TX, not exactly a bridge hotbed, but an enthusiastic group whose leaders (not I) kept the percentage games of all who played in the once a week unit ...
