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.

Reviving the Recorder System
Hi Nick & Dave, For what it is worth, IMO, both of you are right-on. However, since competent and non-biased people need to be involved (the ACBL is sadly lacking, not with competent people able to perform), but with an unpaid staff willing to take the responsibility and do the deed ...
Reviving the Recorder System
Back in the day, starting in Montreal (Spring, 1985) but before the year 2000, many horrible actors (yes, the "C" word) were tried, convicted and processed out of the league soon after the Recorder System was approved. Then in about 1997 the BOD "fired" the best Recorder the ACBL ever ...
Interesting Ruling Situation
No doubt, if the TD, after consultation with the insufficient bidder, came back to the table and just arbitrarily announced that the opening bidder meant to bid 3 spades not 2, then the auction can continue on with no penalty nor further interruption, but when he didn't, I think ...
Interesting Ruling Situation
My opinion was based on what I thought happened after the director was called, that then no one but the opening bidder knew whether he was bidding 2 spades over what he thought was a 1NT response, but if it was then accepted as 3 spades over 2NT (shortness), the ...
Interesting Ruling Situation
Hi Art, While I think the TD, at least tried to give a somewhat logical (and what he may think would be a favoring option to the non-offenders) he, in fact, should just have barred the original responder from the rest of the auction and forced the opening bidder to ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
@John & David (above), Your problem reeks from a famous similar one, when a possible guilty party was asked, "When did you stop beating your wife"? Obviously, if no one paid any taxes, the world in general would likely have never progressed from the stone ages. However, on an individual comparison ...
Breaking ties in KO matches
Good point Peter and if now on the books, my one step at a time would be always to have the playoff to determine ties, and only make an exception if there wasn't time to have one, since and if, the next match in that tournament started right away ...
Breaking ties in KO matches
Hi Jan, While you have done a very good job of presenting a now casual subject, and, no doubt, while thinking about it, somehow at this time and place, everyone commenting will not be very emotional in discussing pros and cons of various what appear to be, reasonable solutions. But ...
Wolfe Signoff versus CheckBack Stayman over 2NT rebid
After 1C or 1D P 1S P 2NT 3C demands 3D and then: 3H suggests a very weak 5-4 or 5-5 and demands a pass or preference. After 1C P 1 of a major P 2NT 3C demands 3D P. then 3NT shows club support and possible slam interest in ...
Forgive and forget?
> > > Hi Steve et al, > > In reply to your query: "Here," said the duck .. in spite of being old and basically deaf. I wish I could attend various, if not all WBF activities, but in reality, all I can do is observe and when necessary, comment, trying to lead or at ...
