about me

Trying to do what's best for the game, often by clearing up misconceptions and misinformation.  All opinions are my own and reflect no bridge organization or group.

Past: Served for 9 years on ACBL BoD, 4 years as BoG chairman, lifetime member of BoG, 9 years on D19 board, almost every unit job from grunt labor to unit president.  Proudest bridge admin experience was being "first spouse" to a great BoG chairman.

Current: Retired, but sharing my experience and knowledge.

Country
United States of America

An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Depends who the opp is. Gotta bait those traps.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Absolutely correct, Nick. And sadly so.
The most popular card game in Italy
This reminds me of years ago, when bidding boxes had the following cards: There was a red card with a large "D" for double. There was a blue card with a large "RD" for redouble. Finally, there was a brown card with a large "TD" for when a tournament director ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
From my time on the BoD, I heard "can I be personally liable?" said way too many times by board members. The former legal counsel often said that his primary role was to prevent the ACBL from being sued. And that litigation-adverse mindset overwhelmed the desire to do the right ...
