about me
Programmer and Game Designer (Quest for Glory, Castle of Dr. Brain, Shannara). Still an "up and coming young player" now that I qualify for Senior events (everyone else at my club is older). I occasionally blog at my web site (see below). I'm working on putting a new game project together.

Why Abstain?
I checked (1) and Other. My Other is generally that I don't have a good opinion on how to bid the hand. I don't want to pick something random that might influence the poll results. By abstaining, I get to see the answers other players chose without tainting ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AK6 A63 AQ97532 ---
If I jump to 2, I just know that partner with 5 hearts and 4 spades, or even 4-4, is going to keep correcting everything back to spades. I'd like to bid 4 as a splinter, but even without the "no gadgets" stipulation, we'll never be ...
Outraged by the USBF
Peg - My focus and concentration were poor when I was 20. They weren't much better than I was 30. They're still bad now that I'm 60+. :-) But I think I'm a better player now than when I was 30. Cutoff for Senior events? Eh, doesn't ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
The result is at first odd, and there was some confusion, but I don't see wrongdoing here, just an unfortunate "rub of the green": 1. On Win-Loss, clearly Schafer would have won. 2. But it's common to take margin into account. 3. On an IMP comparison basis, Gupta ...
Outraged by the USBF
I just searched for that thread, and the only ones I could find are locked and available only to committee members. I would hardly call that an "open" discussion thread.
Outraged by the USBF
There is a possible solution to this that I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned - Allow teams to register 8 or more players, with up to six of them designated as the primary team, and the others as alternates. In the event the team wins a qualifying event, the players ...
USBC Final Results For Open and Women
Disa held on to win in the end. Bjerkan played a great final 2 sets to make it close.
Does Anybody Know why the Official Result has not been Posted in the Donn-Fleisher Match?
Thanks for clarifying that. It had me scratching my head last night. I did note the identical scores in the 7th and 8th segments as slightly suspicious, but of course that could have happened.
Crunch Time
I would play against them normally... then file a Recorder form after every session. Surely they will show some mannerism that I can report as inappropriate, so let's report every twitch, card placement, and pencil position. Eventually the NBO's will get so overwhelmed by the pile of reports ...
What other sport or mind game competition allows bad players to become champions by hiring good players ?
Mark, that's an easy one, given that most bridge players are not Spring chickens. Maintaining focus and concentration for hours at a time, taking a 2-hour break, and going right back into the fray is hard. Playing on a 5 or 6 man team and taking some time off ...
