about me

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

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

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. 

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. 

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

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

Best,

North Americans Win Cavendish Teams
A little humour for our American friends. Our elite bridge players often go south, now if you want to come north..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxgpMLSK_I8 C
Meckstroth Elected to Hall of Fame
Well deserved indeed. Let's hope Eric follows immediately upon eligibility. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXW-sL5gzHQ C
North Americans Win Cavendish Teams
Congrats Vince and team. And Nigel, we are not Americans, nor Brits nor French. We have our own flag, currency, borders and government. We have some damn good bridge players too, many of which have migrated to our southern neighbour. Oh, we spell like that too. We even write songs ...
FS sentencing from IBF
Let's not forget. F/S had planned and executed a secret code violating bridge's highest law, unlawful communication... Deterrence is moot. When one cheats or lies, often they imagine they will never be caught and/or the penalty will be small. (as it was earlier for both F ...
Why do these guys cheat?
All of the above. Another question might be, why would team mates of cheaters retain those ill-gotten gains? Boye set the bar high when he renounced his titles won with F/S. I am waiting with bated breath for others to follow suit. Surely a tainted title cannot resonate with ...
Double Jeopardy
Joey, I phrased it poorly. A better case might be a recent on (see W5) where a couple of dead beats were recruited by the RCMP (as terrorists), and convicted by a jury. On appeal the judge was scathing of the police and called it blatant entrapment. The crown is ...
Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
Just curious, is there any hearing pending from the ACBL and/or other sanctioning bodies? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFBHNV935Zw C
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)
Great to hear how wonderful a person he was. Too often expertise begets ego, not in this case. Condolences to his family and friends. The bridge world grieves with you. C
Improvement in bridge- a funny story

What's the best result you've lost IMPs on (or worst you've gained on)?
I was in 4♠XX making 6. Team mates pushed opps to 6, doubled and couldn't beat it. Lost a few imps. C
