about me

I love our game. I'm more interested in improving than in playing, so I study daily. I became a life master back when that was a high achievement (before strats, before MP inflation). I much prefer playing "up" to "playing down," which to me is a totally different game and not much fun. I'd sure like to find an equal and somewhat steady partner here in south Texas, but prospects aren't that favorable. That causes me pain and sends me to the robots for practice. I most enjoy the more difficult and more subtle parts of our game.

An unusual alert situation
At first I was thinking this kind of failure to remember isn't really that unusual, but after that I couldn't seem to recall what originally caused me think about it like that.
What's the ethical thing to do when partner misreviews auction?
I might agree if you'd preface it with "For me," because ethics isn't about doing what somebody else says is right, and part of bridge is having the judgment to know when it's correct to deviate from normal behavior. There's also the zero tolerance thing, which ...
What's the ethical thing to do when partner misreviews auction?
This seems to have nothing at all to do with ethics. It's about the regs/laws/rules instead.
"Social media"
D.C., if you cannot take a light-hearted message from me, then the same idea from a different messenger might appeal without so deeply offending your sensibilities: "....reflects a more modern and simple approach to reaching todays students who bring a lot less to the table, in terms of practical ...
"Social media"
If that's all you read, Dominic, a couple of pictures might really help you more. It's a joker, joke, can't you take one? If you make it to retirement, maybe you'll laugh then, too.
"Social media"
For communicating with the under-35 crowd, I'd suggest to perhaps stick with a picture, maybe something like various parts of a deck of cards that the younger user could sort of scroll through mindlessly using their thumb and smart phone (and leave out parts of the deck like the ...
10 to 19 No Trump
I think in general it's the understanding between partners that can truly and correctly be categorized as illegal, and that's true despite the careless remarks made here. As my mentor used to say, you pays your money and you takes your chances. I'm confident several here will ...
2 ACBLs?
You're a smart guy, Ed. I'll bet you can guess. Hint: pros can often earn thousands of ACBL masterpoints by the hundreds while pairing together to feed on rank amateurs found among their tournaments in what they consider their "sport."
2 ACBLs?
First off, there aren't two organizations. There's only one, and it clearly panders to pros. Secondly, the two groups of players you named are in very real competition; not a matter of how they "view one another." What "club player" needs encouragement to show up at tournaments to ...
ACBL Losing Millions
How about you volunteer to play just one club game with me in order to help club bridge thrive in our area? I'll even play your card.
