about me

In addition to playing bridge, I am currently a member of the ACBL seeding committee.  I have also coached 2 junior pairs in the program run by Michael and Debbie Rosenberg.  When not playing bridge, I spend my time trading stock options, chilling with my family, and traveling.

Nick, Just because you were aware that Tony was "Tuna" before you were aware that I was "Tuna" does not make him first no matter how many bags of nonpareils he can eat. He may have been, but first the jury needs stronger evidence.

Rebid 1NT More Often
David, As you know from many of our email correspondence, I don’t have the attention span to plow through your litany of example hands. In fact, I didn’t even read far enough to know which side of this debate you are on so it seemed pointless to read ...
