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.

World Bridge Day
John, you may not have been aware when you wrote this, that September 8th is World Physical Therapy Day. Just think about what this means. You would not need to have a special day to evangelize bridge players. You could practice Tai Chi with some friends on a nearby bridge ...
How do you play this suit
Also, vacuums suck, and 24-point bridge hands mostly don't (even when the HCP are "random").
Age - JUST a Number!
"Alert, Forcing Pass"
You too can score 90%!
Jay, you think a team of four putzes who met five minutes before game time playing a six-man team of seasoned professionals only partnering one another 52 weeks a year is bridge?
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
It is very encouraging to see the beginnings of a developing consensus.
Age - JUST a Number!
What about ninety two?

Please, One More Time for this Theme
Maybe I'll get jumped by the thousand or so bridge lawyers contributing to this thread, but I have to risk it, Ha!! There is a common sense bridge sort of reasoning to be applied here that has not one thing to do with ethics, and I think it deserves ...
