about me

Tried to follow "Mom's First Rule of Bridge" since I started learning this game.  ("No one cares if you are good or bad, don't be slow")

Las Vegas Housing - ACBL Great Value but not Consistently Available For All Rooms
It must be me (again). But spending money on a hotel room in Las Vegas just seems fundamentally wrong :)
Common game deal Wed 16 April
Hmm. Interesting hand for certain. I have often thought being able to divine the layout based on the assessment of the ops is a much better skill than being able to calculate the slight difference between reasonable lines. Lets start with what happened. The top expert bid 3. This ...
Common game deal Wed 16 April
The second part is a very good question. The first part seems like an underbid because if they do lead K from AK systemically, it likely makes a lot of difference. I also know some pairs that lead A from AK but K from AK when planning a singleton switch.
In the Well: Jose Damiani
Bonjour M. Damiani, You might not recall me, but I was the driver for you, Joan and Ernesto down to Philadelphia. Just to give you a heads-up, I am also pretty much the only person on this whole site who believes in the IOC affiliation. However, from the unintended consequences ...
You are missing my vote: don't know how I used to remember the cards, I just did. Nowadays it is a newspaper/book column visualization. Sometimes the print is annoyingly small. . .
