about me

I was active in the Professional Bridge Tour during its brief but interesting life.  I play once or twice a month in my club and attend regional and national tournaments when able. I've authored several bridge books and articles including the beginner rubber bridge book Simplicity Bridge in 2009. I'm focused on finding ways to promote our game of contract bridge at the high school and college age levels using new tools and marketing methods. Somewhere along the line I managed to make Bronze Life Master, but not liking the echelons above LM concept I just claim LM. I will continue to play at bridge, hoping to someday come close to learning the game.

In the Well: Russ Jones
If offloading is an objective, I must wonder about the recent change from CEO to Exec Dir. It appears that the Board wants to take more control, not slack the reins. Any comment on this would be appreciated, but none would be understood as well.

It would be nice if we could find an update for the yellow card. This may take some doing, but the simpler the better. I'm thinking we need one suited for I/N players and TV coverage, one that is primarily natural and could easily be understood, followed, and ...
Congratulations Harvard Crimson Aces!
I didn't know they were segregated. I'll leave it to the team to figure it out.
Congratulations Harvard Crimson Aces!
Does Harvard have a cheer squad? Get a photo like this with the cheerleaders and the bridge team with a trophy (borrow a nice one from the trophy case and cover the football or whatever). Release that with the press release.
Congratulations Harvard Crimson Aces!
ACBL Press Release would make a lot of sense. DON'T MENTION the aging of our membership. Emphasize "A youthful resurgence of this highly challenging and yet widely popular game."

Anyone here from Ed Fdn? Cough up for both teams?
What has partner got?
We ought to come out with a whist/bridge version so there will be something to do at the bar after the game other than rehash hands.

Congrats to all volunteer coaches/mentors, to Stephanie at ACBL Marketing, and everyone else who contributed to building the swelling number of colleges with participating bridge teams! Thanks to the ACBL Educational Foundation for providing the scholarship money. As the song says: "More, More, More!" (How do I like it ...
What has partner got?
There you go. I didn't read down far enough. Same problem in bridge, lol.
What has partner got?
If opener knew that was his hand, six quick tricks, why did he not open 2C? Something had to be very odd. I kinda like the other idea linked to above, where opener was fooling around with an odd hand. But, as everyone knows, no great bidding plan goes unpunished ...
