Bridge Player
about me

Avid bridge player, though with kids/work, am generally limited to a a long weekend at each of Spring/Summer NABC.

Learned to play in graduate school ~2005, and have fallen in love with the game more every passing year.

Math geek, finance/engineering nerd.

Favorite part of playing the game is meeting new people every year (and making lasting connections).

Just got certified as a bridge teacher so that next year I can volunteer at my son's middle school and teach after school once a week.  Need to get kids involved in the game.

Country
United States of America

Where is Everyone?
Brian...your generosity during these times is laudable (but not surprising for those that know you). Follow-up thought...any chance a group of professional/top-tier players would be willing to do a Pro-Am online? Get a 10+ table game, with a 16 or 24 board session on BBO where all ...
Jorge Barrera Wins Spring NABC Robot Individual
Yes. Congratulations to Jorge, very well done. As an aside, while you may not think much of robots bridge, looking at the people like Phil, Alex Perlin, Leo Lasota and others, there is clearly a strong overlap in skills required to be successful both at the table and with bots ...
2020 Spring Online KO (was BBO Vanderbilt): They're off!
Tom...thanks so much for organizing this. Please put me down for a team.
Online Bridge Teacher For Kids Needed
sign my kids up as well - 12 and 9.
ACBL: CAN IT BE SAVED?
In addition to marketing, anybody have any thoughts about running an on-line class for people that are "trapped" in their homes the next few weeks. Especially given Geoff's comments about kids/Xbox - this could be a really interesting time to have a 1 hour/day class for next few ...
Hesitation Problem
One thing that isn't clear to me here...if without a BIT, E would have bid 5C (at least some E players would), and gone down, but because of the BIT chose to Pass, and went plus...didn't E use the UA, where a logical alternative was available ...
Director Behavior for I/N Events at Nationals
I think it's a shame that any Director (especially in an I/N event) not be courteous and professional. I/N players are critical to the game we love. That said, I will say that I was fortunate to have only positive experiences with Directors this NABC. In the ...
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
Jim - while I would normally agree with you (as I am a hard core Diet Coke-aholic), this was clearly a "Pepsi" NABC (as he won the Spingold and the Fishbein Trophy).
GNT Format: Going Forward
Hi David...I like the way D6 ran it this year. Final day came down to 3 teams (after a one-day Swiss that Saturday). Played a 3-way for one session, with team in last place getting eliminated if down in both matches and had lowest net IMPS. The final two ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Peg...from the old CoC: The District 22 GNT Finals are knockout team events scored by IMPs (and converted to VP’s when a team plays in a round robin) The URL is: http://acbldistrict22.com/D22/DIR/GNT/2018/D22_GNT_2016-2018_COC.pdf It's not dyslexia...the issue is that ...
