about me

I live in the mountains of western North Carolina (US) and work as a freelance editor of nonfiction. The latter was preceded by two lengthy stints as a systems engineer in the telecom industry. I have written and self-published several books and ebooks (one on bridge, the remainder on chess) and have recorded several digital audio tracks. I last played bridge in 2007.

Effective October 29, 2016, I will try to consistently use the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hen," which means "he or she" or "him or her," and the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hens," which means "his or her" or "his or hers."

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come
I was half expecting the comma in the title to be followed by "watching all the milk go by."
Baba Yaga and the Gingerbread Boy
I found interesting that the best defense against either contract involves playing one of the defender's top three trumps at the first opportunity.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I seem to recall that [u]Better Bidding with Bergen[/u] says to open 2 (strong) if at least one of the following is met: * Your hand is no more than one winner short of game * Your hand has more quick tricks than losers * You'd be sick to ...
Baba Yaga and the Gingerbread Boy
6 appears to fail if East plays the 7 at Trick 2.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
My concern was that you had 14 cards.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Reversing with shape 7-5-2-0 (any permutation) is out of the question.
Dodge a Bullet
I see that it's been fixed.
