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.

Anonymous appeal opinion
Except for you, Ed. You don't get an opinion since you're 100% a rules guy, with never any room for opinion (Yes, Ed, I am being a little bit facetious, even though in your case there is obviously zero tolerance of that, with the possible exception of your ...
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
This could be a whole another thread. You've got 15 seconds to get it started.
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
I like playing robot games. GIB doesn't care how long you take to bid. GIB just encourages overbids, then punishes you with perfect defense so you always come up a trick short. What fun! At least I get to take the time required to bid -- or even more -- without ...
Mystery of Barry Crane
Because you don't still think it is silly. It is silly.

Ray, since you're into comment accuracy, the Associated Press which I referenced in a comment above (with a cited statement from the LAPD, too) and that drew a remark from you, well that AP isn't correctly a newspaper. But you go Ray, that was some good lawyerly snark!

Citing the Associated Press: https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20190509/news/305099845/ "During the interview, Hiatt admitted to killing Barry Crane," an LAPD statement said."
Mystery of Barry Crane
Maybe it's the confession that ties him to it.
The Ink and the Squid
Agree it is interesting. As to East's possible motivation for the club nine false card, what might it be other than to represent a singleton club and thereby beg you to take the finesse in hearts (thinking that you cannot be hurt)? Thus, I decline and spurn the finesse ...
The Ink and the Squid
OK, I'll try this. I'm not certain what UDCA has to do with the lead as much as it might with East's first play, so here;'s my thought. I only need to pick up hearts with one loser and no club ruff. So, if East plays ...

Mr. Buffett, is that you disguised behind D16? Any chance we can get a game in? I'm in your database already, and I can pay my own entry!
