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.

The Kibs Are Not Alright
The idea that "The Kibs Are Not Alright" is vicious and malicious, but it is misplaced, and the anger displayed by this false notion may also be real, but it is misplaced as well. I'm not sure who first projected the idea that bridge belongs to the professionals or ...

(Richard, restricting BBO users to a single user name and properly vetting users to connect their ISP address to an ACBL number (or similar) seems like an appropriate and direct approach for BBO's alleged self-kibitzing problem.
The World's most complete bridge player.
For me, it is factual that kibitzing live bridge has been a legitimate part of our game since day 1, and it is factual that kibitzing online play is now under serious assault under guise of fighting "cheating;" the false notion being that one of either cheating or kibitzing has ...
The World's most complete bridge player.
Kibitzing is still one of the best, if not the very best, way to learn our game. Any efforts to restrict kibitzing restrict learning too, and as a consequence further reduces the circle of people who will be watching and learning. Further, fewer people will have interest in kibitzing if ...

So Ray, by your logic, if you revoke on a bridge hand when you didn't really mean to, and nobody catches you, then you're still a cheat?

Yu think? Those minds managed to draw Yu in, no question.
Delayed Viewing Possibility
I have no doubt that kibitzing has always been and still is, one of the most important means by which players learn and improve. It easily might be the #1 all time way. Take that away and fewer people will avail themselves of learning or improving. It's that simple ...
