about me
I live in the jungles of upstate New York (between Syracuse and Utica). Not retired yet so I don't play as much as I would like and it is a long drive to almost any of the local games.

Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 6 T82 AQT9 96532
As I said, I am confused. Sorry, the bidding diagrams always confuse me.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 6 T82 AQT9 96532
I am confused here (as usual). How can double get a good lead when I seem to be the one who is on lead?
Declining the revoke penalty
I know there are some who think we need to follow all such rules strictly but I think you did exactly the right thing here. Even calling the director and asking that the penalty be waived might have been stressful to your opponents. It is the kind of thing that ...
The disappearing evening club game
I agree with Tom completely. All night and weekend games have disappeared from my area. I still work although my schedule is flexible enough that I can still usually arrange to play once a month or so. However, people who work conventional hours have no opportunities left to play. It ...
Looking to play "The Little Major" system by Terence Reese

dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
Hey Josh, how about your offer to that lady who ran out of "pass" cards to give her all of yours because "I never use them!" I have told that story about you at least 100 times. Dad
If you ever taught 5th Graders (or higher level grades) I want to hear your opinion on how to teach Bridge in schools.
I think this is a worthwhile idea although I am somewhat skeptical that most schools would accept this into the curriculum as opposed to an extracurricular activity during lunch or after school So many kids these days are in various after school programs because both parents work that I wonder ...
Vanderbilt Seeding Disaster
Josh Donn's father here! Just sitting at home in three feet of snow minding my own business and trying to figure out what my baby boy is up to and I find myself subject to all kinds of accusations. I deny all charges. I didn't kill JFK (I ...
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: AK87xxx Q --- KQ98x
I certainly have better evidence than most of you do about whether Josh is nuts (perhaps better phrasing would be "how nuts Josh is"). In fact, to a large extent, I am the source. For what it is worth as a non-expert who plays a much simpler style of Precision ...
