about me

I am a teacher of mentally handicapped children by day. By night, (bridge) blogger, writer, editor, director, occasional teacher and social player. 

\n

I wrote Collateral Damage, the sordid story and cold case of a stolen National title. You can see it and other essays here;

\n

I and a few others fail to grasp why the ACBL cannot hear and appeal that was filed in 1979 at the event in question. By that abdication, they have conspired to deny the title to the rightful winners and thereby endorsed self-confessed and convicted cheaters. 

\n

I reside in suburban Toronto, and am back at work (where I belong) after a year off with a fabulous month volunteering in Rwanda and happy in love, life, career. 

\n

I have a fabulous son with the greatest name in Negro League history. You can figure that out.

\n

Anyone is invited to email me at dancesavecwords@gmail.com.

Best,

Play Poll
Isn't it dangerous (trying to be kind) to lead a singleton 10? It would be of value to know the level of the opps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsfrsLxt0l8 C
Is there something better than BBO?
I find the OP's criticisms over-blown, baseless and windy. Don't like the bots? Don't use them. Or as others pointed out, find other software which will likely cost. Can't find a partner? Get a pal to play before you log in. Make a list of "friends ...
More weirdness from the 1971 Bowl
I've seen most too. One hand does not a cheater make, but a pattern (as provided) surely are more damning than "lucky guesses". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lo-WGy_-sc C
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Let's cull the elite and change the GNT to ANT or Average National Pairs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esxvwdW4sdA C
If you ever taught 5th Graders (or higher level grades) I want to hear your opinion on how to teach Bridge in schools.
Go Slow, I mean really slow. A lot of adults don't know about tricks, trumps playing in order. Also use (pre-dealt) 2/3/4/5 card "endings" to explain some themes. I make them do homework by cutting out a bridge column from a newspaper and asking a question ...
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: T87 AJT AT863 K6
I can only speculate someone bid and somehow bought well. Tough to imagine anything other than pass. Chttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVhNCTH8pDs C
So Cool ... And Kind of Mean
You can buy card holders to make life easier for those little hands. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhjSzibOIH4 C
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Hi Jeff, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-L6rEm0rnY "Barry was a partner killer. At the Hawaii Nationals in the Spring of 1985 Barry played with Mike Passell in the Open Pairs. They had a fabulous last session and won the event easily, the umpteenth time that Barry won that ...
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Hi Jeff, I recall Grant Baze writing about you playing with "Mr. Bridge" and (apparently) you were displeased at his demeanor as a partner. I am sure you recall Beijing (1995) when Canada (if they had chosen "dumping") would not have to meet you in the final. I spoke with ...
