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.

Save Bundy's Sanity
There are any number of situations in duplicate bridge that range from frustrating to maddening, and folks need to find their own way. I think it is true that bridge exposes areas where each of us need personal growth. There's no shame in that. For those who can afford ...
A Modest Proposal for ACBL Masterpoints©
Says who, Ray? (Sorry, can't resist).

HaHa, David. That's too funny!
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Millions of dollars worth of masterpoints could be two millions worth or it could be 999 millions worth or even more, and that amount of dollar value could quite easily represent billions of masterpoints. Or else, it could be, maybe, three. We just don't know. (David, any reflection on ...

Good Attorney? What an oxymoron!
What It Was Like Negotiating Hotel Rooms On Behalf Of The ACBL
Ira, the constant complaints expressed via Bridge Winners (Bridge Whiners?) don't bother me any more than they do you. However, I see them as symptomatic. Those complaints do seem to represent a real problem; it's that no matter what gets proposed on here, many folks will immediately step ...
