about me

Started out in the NYC area, moved to DC burbs in 1990.  Enjoy the challenge of playing different systems with different partners though getting old and forgetting sucks!  I am a bidding problem junkie (MSC, It's Your Call, etc.) though I sometimes realize my action at the table and the action I choose for the contest aren't necessarily the same!

I enjoy tournaments and play in them more than in club games.  Go to occasional nationals and hope to do more of those in the future.

Country
United States of America

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
beating Carolyn Lynch's high-powered squad (Balicki/Zmudzinski, Passell/Wold) in a regional KO final - down 15 at halftime and 41 after the first 6 boards of the 2nd half, we won the last 6 boards 43-0!
Bridge Accomplishments
Too many regional wins to count, nearly winning Flight A GNT in 2012

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Stan Schenker's bidding problem: AJT4 AK AKQ642 J
I'd like to know if I'm playing 2-2-3 showing 4 spades and longer diamonds (so that 2-2-3 denies a 4 card major thus responder's 3M bid shows 5+ cards). If not, 2-2-3 can force responder to guess... he ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: KJ953 AK32 6 863
when you have 4 spades and 5 hearts, you play ELC (see Kit Woolsey's latest article for example...)
Jacoby Swiss First Final: BYRNES Still Leads
Some confusion may be because there are two teams with captain "Becker" (Michael and Drew)...
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
Congrats Mark and Richard - as Sylvia says, D6 Rocks! I admire Mark, he is a very patient and dedicated teacher of many students of this great game.
Interesting Discard Situation
No, you still take 4 spades and a (presumed) diamond trick (if declarer has AK he's got enough tricks plus he bid 3 nonforcing diamonds on 13 HCP. Partner signalled with a high club on the 1st trick.
Light hearted
Thought we are required to have a singleton honor (A, K or Q) to open 1NT now?
Liu - Zhao Win IMP Pairs
Barry Bragin (2nd) and Jeff Hand (3rd) also went to UMD...
Liu - Zhao Win IMP Pairs
Excellent job by D6'er Fred King and ex-D6'er Barry Bragin, congratulations guys!
Morse and Sutherlin Lead IMP Pairs
I agree, Jan. They even seem to be updating the major swiss events (such as the 0-10K Swiss currently being played) after each round, which has not been the case in the past as far as I know. It appears they even have matchups and home-table assignments for each team ...
Boyd - Robinson Repeat in NAP
Nice showing for my home district 6, with Noble Shore/Mike Gill 2nd and Sylvia Shi/Daniel Korbel 6th, way to go everyone! Guess Stevie and Peter are already preparing for an attempted 3-peat in 2018!
