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.

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!

Bermuda Bowl RR9: USA1 vs USA2
Eugene - correction: in previous round (8), it was USA1 that whitewashed Germany and USA2 beat Netherlands.
LO Wins Roth Swiss
great win for District 6 and the Washington Bridge League!! You should all be proud of this win vs. the very best competition! Keep it up!
You Be The Judge - hand from Wernher Pairs
thank you all for your votes/comments, this did prove to be a varied, interesting and enlightening discussion. I held the South hand and my thoughts pretty much echoed what was said here, that N can open 1 or bid 4 over 4, and that S can ...
Grand National Teams, Round of 16
Team rosters now available from the brackets pages for all flights - mousing over a team name gives you a prompt to click on it and when you do the team roster does appear... so - progress! Not quite as good as having the rosters pop up directly in response to mouse-over ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 9742 AKQT AKQT5 ---
some play that 3, while normally a mini-splinter as you describe it, can be a void splinter as well. Agree that unless you can differentiate between a singleton splinter and a void splinter, partner doesn't know (a) if his A is "working", or (b) if we have a ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 9742 AKQT AKQT5 ---
(1) I'd have to be sure 5 isn't some freak minor two suiter (2) even with a firm agreement that 5 is exclusion, that does risk the 5 level - partner won't be happy about playing in 5 with xxxx/xxx/xx/KQJx - even adding ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 9742 AKQT AKQT5 ---
I assume standard splinter structure (some have methods to show void splinters separately). Problem with reversing then supporting spades is convincing partner you have 4 card support, at least the splinter tells partner immediately that you have 4 spades and club shortness, he can evaluate his black suit holdings (the ...
How should this hand be bid/ATB
I played this hand last night also; I had "taught" 1-1NT-3 3-way bid to partner (Steve R.), so this hand came up and I had the big hand. partner elected to bid 3 directly over 3, but that caused me to think he had a 3 ...
Play Problem
on a somewhat off-topic issue, it depends on ones preemptive style but I would consider the South hand "too good" for a 3 preempt with 2nd round controls in all 3 side suits... if the majors were switched so that I no longer had the "boss suit", I would ...
Play Problem
question... is LHO leading Q because it is a singleton, or because he has both minor suit aces and chose not to lead (or underlead?) either of them? If he had the A he *might* have chosen that lead to either stop ruffs or "get a look at dummy", though ...
