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

How Not To Fill Out a Convention Card Part 1
A very "occasional" partner. My mother doesn't play 25-27. Truth is, like many of these UI and LA scenarios, once the well is contaminated, every drop is poison. There was no way (for you) to win once the die was cast. Pass. Automatic We've all had -990 before ...
2019 Buffett Cup
Would Richie make him 2 to 1 or better? C
Sidney Lazard's Great Coup
Legend status. Right out of Mollo if you didn't know better. Priceless. C
2019 Buffett Cup
Wow! Congrats on your appointment and team. Watch that Oren. Damn good. Like the mix. I hope generous consideration was provided to the NPC for her toils. I have but one piece of advice. Don't even consider benching the Hambone. GL. C
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
If you like sleeping on the couch, carry on. Occasionally, like here non-bridge factors (like spouse, toupé) complicate the decision. Would you open 1NT with a regular partner not your spouse? Your spouse may see this bid not only as a mis-bid but a (typically male) attempt to hog the ...
Playing Double Dummy in the Vanderbilt
Bridge needs more humour. Too often it's drier than the Sahara. Always loved Mollo, Kantar, Falk, Philip and Robert King, Right Through the Pack and of course Cold Bottom courtesy Frank Vine. Great anecdotes Brian. TY for sharing. C
More Memphis Mishappenings
It looks like upon realizing South forgot Kokish, North was pondering (thus the BITs and UI) how he could possibly bid accurately AND arrive at 6D. He had to jump there, probably should not have tried intervening calls but there was NO solution to negate a natural 2 call ...
Double Standards
Leslie is a friend. I feel his pain. Would rather share his joy. (He's the little one....) C
