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.

ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Unfortunately, there is no evidence that too many people are calculating their entertainment expense on an hourly basis, then making their decisions based on math calculations. I can see how people might instead look at the fact of being charged several dollars more than the next guy and conclude that ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Not only exorbitant, but an unfriendly smack upside the head to a potential ACBL member.
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
One Forrest Gump, who reportedly held ACBL membership as well as dual Canadian/American citizenship, reportedly once said, when discussing non-member surcharges, that "stupid is as stupid does"
Spingold Chances SF- Part 6
I don't see anything at all to indicate North holding AK of hearts. Without those specific cards in North, there's no way slam is even close to 50% on. So, South simply can't bid it, and North simply can't bid South's hesitation. Besides, how many ...
Spingold Chances SF- part 3
Phil, I have nothing to gain here, so I hope you'll take the last word. Like you, I am not sure how I'd react if I played the Spingold semi-finals. I do know I'd be beyond tired, and that this fact would be irrelevant to other contestants ...
Spingold Chances SF- part 3
Thank you, Phil, for sharing these hands. You did say to feel free to comment, and mine is that you've summed up the situation nicely, thusly: " seems that on hands like this UI is conveyed and that we have lost control of this part of the game by ...
looking for used Dealer4 machine
I can supply you any number of former partners who'll say they know how to Deal and who claim to have been used or even ab-used plenty by me in the post-mortem, and I'll trade you any one or even two of these used dealers for a machine ...
Director Behavior for I/N Events at Nationals
A partial solution is to solve the issue of too many regional tournaments. Reduce that number, and suddenly there is a greater abundance of experienced Directors for the remaining tournaments.
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
It sounds like you didn't enjoy playing. That makes me glad I didn't go.
