about me

I live in Lumberton TX, originally from Plymouth MA. I direct at the Beaumont Bridge Studio (a Common Game club) and the Orange Community Bridge League (not a Common Game Club).

When not playing or directing bridge, I work part-time at Walmart in Lumberton and play clarinet and bassoon with the Community Band of Southeast Texas.

Board 15 from the 01/11/2020 Common Game
The North hand holds 16 HCP, which is outside my Flannery range. As I do not fudge with this convention, I am sticking with what I said in my original post.
Double Dummy Deal Where the Side That Can Make Slam Doesn't Bid at All
Yes. If E opens 2, and you end up in some number of . When E shows up with the K, it's unlikely that he holds the Q as well. On the other hand, if East opens a thin 1, it's anyone's guess as to ...
Board 15 from the 01/11/2020 Common Game
It's very difficult for NS to get to 6. If S opens 1 (or 1 short) in first seat, NS is booked to arrive at a 4 contract. On the other hand, if S passes (my choice), N will open 1. If Reverse Drury ...
Board 1 from the 12/30/2019 Common Game
I was South. The auction was 2-2-4-P; P-5-P-P; 5-X-P-P; P. Down 2; -300, below average for NS. Pard noted after I tabled the dummy that I should have passed over 2. Who knows what West would have done over that. My rule of thumb ...
Board 27 from the 12/21/2019 Common Game
1NT. With a balanced 16 HCP this bid describes this hand. The rest of the auction: 2 (Dbl by N?); 2-3; 4-P. East should have no trouble winning 10 tricks.
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
My club uses electronic scoring. I put the travelers in just as a reference for the players to determine their Instant MPs. The players at my club are, for the most part, quick. Any discussion of the deals during the session is short.
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
I know of two LMs in Unit 201 (Sabine Neches) who are resuming the chase for Gold points. I may resume that chase as well if I were to play in a Regional or NABC.
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
There is one thing that was not mentioned in the booklet or by anyone on this subject. Where did these deals come from? Except for the IMG held this past July, where the deals were played in various ACBL tournaments 20 years ago, the deals in all the earlier IMGs ...
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
Since ACBL stipulates in the COC that the game can be split once 14 tables have been reached, with 13 tables only one section can be run. Same with 13.5 tables, as that is NOT 14 tables. With the small number of tables, as long as there is no ...
That Moment When you realise the ACBL has no idea
"Gold is meaningless for LM's. . ." That's not true any more! When ACBL introduced Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald LM ranks a couple of years ago, another wrinkle was added. All LM's who hold more than 2500 MP must have 10% Gold/Platinum points in order to advance beyond ...
