about me

I am a retired teacher.  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

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,

Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: J7xxx Qx AJ8xxx ---
I hope partner doesn't go toll-free after my Michael's encouragement. Now I'm feeling remorseful, and like Danny K, prefer numbers to Xs. C
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Hey - my team of Larry, Curly, Moe and Shemp made it to the round of 82 w/o sponsor at the Morehead a few years back.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkU-NHgYcwU C
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Cokin not a repeat offender. And, he was coerced by "Stevie Wonder" and was allegedly, the only one in support of jettisoning their cheating loot. The ACBL considered him redeemed, although for some of us, that was difficult to understand, let alone accept.
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
I stand corrected, thx. C
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
With apologies to 10 CC- How Long has This Been Goin' On? The sad, pathetic truth is the ACBL and most other agencies are toothless, indifferent to cheaters, terrified of litigation, and if that weren't enough, can't follow their own (albeit belatedly created and never enforced laws) about ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Dodging the paying of taxes is hardly unique, certainly not to Norway, remember Leona Helmsley, Pete Rose, Leslie Snipes, Ty Warner, Willie Nelson to name a few.....reminds me of... Sunny Afternoon (Kinks). Sad to see. Hopefully out soon. C
Who's the Joker?
Who is the joker? My money is on partner, the vulnerability and opp's bidding betray as much. (and pulling to 2S shows weakness), though not necessarily a psyche. I did not notice if someone mentioned (this) partner's tendencies. Would this be their first ever or possibly one of ...
Bye Bye Baze
I have fond memories about playing against Grant on-line. We once did 24 boards in less than an hour. Very gracious, funny, warm. The ultimate pro. C

OMG! $70 **PER TABLE** Luxury Tax
