about me

I've enjoyed playing cards since I was a kid and Bridge is the ultimate card game. I played heavily in 2006-2009 while going to college and then disappeared for a while when the limited vacation days made it hard to go to tournaments. I have a bit more free time recently and have been getting back into it again, what a great game!

 

For day job stuff I build custom native mobile apps for Android and iOS and my main other consistent interest has been hiking. I'd like to get into backpacking although I haven't done it yet. Other interests over the years have been Magic the Gathering, Gardening, Go, Eve Online, and tabletop games like Terra Mystica.

Country
United States of America

Defending on the Couch - Part Two
I think the main thing is you and Annie need to talk about your carding and consider playing more SP. On both of these hands and another one you posted recently, having good SP agreements helps a lot in the defense. On board 1, she should play 6 and then ...
Alerting on line and ethics.
It's not the slightest bit unethical. This isn't even close to the tiniest bit unethical. Now if you had a history of doing this and partner bid 4 even with 3 card heart support, then we'd be in a totally different realm.
Delayed Vugraph from Reynolds Matches this Weekend
Corrected in the other thread, and Jan is aware of correct times, but start times for Sieg vs Fox are listed EDT when those times are PDT. So to clarify: Saturday: 5PM PDT 8PM EDT Sunday: 4:30 PM PDT 7:30 PM EDT Sunday #2: 7PM PDT 10PM EDT ...
Wild Card Results and Semi-Final Knockout Matches - Reynolds Soloway-Style Knockout #2
To clarify times, the 5PM Saturday and 4:30/7 PM Sunday times are PDT. So eastern, that's 8PM and 7:30/10
Reynolds June KO - Predict the winners!
Messed up in what way? Tom isn't involved in this fantasy bracket idea, just me.
Rusinow conundrum
C3. If it was wrong, then blame the useless count card when SP is far more useful here. Also, if declarer really is 2524 or similar, then partner probably should have bid their 7 card suit white at some point.
District 7 Columbia/Atlanta Regionals are A GO!
Cue lots of people having strong opinions, confident that they are right and anyone who disagrees is insane/irresponsible (one side) or over controlling/not letting people make their own decisions (other side) Also probably some references to lawsuits, even though they are incredibly unlikely to succeed and the tournament ...
Question for the forum re sectionals during the pandemic
Hi Chris, Agree with your suggestion that online intro lessons are a great idea for clubs and other organizations (including potentially units) to explore. However, you have seemed very bitter in past posts about the 11% of membership fees that units receive. Just wanted to point out that Seattle is ...
Delayed Viewing Possibility
I don't think it's an "objection", I just think of it as highlighting factors that a lot of others seem to be glossing over. As someone who plays 95% and occasionally kibitzes, I would be a lot less likely to ever kibitz or watch bridge hands if this ...
Delayed Viewing Possibility
Youtube > twitch, not just for account purposes for commenting but also because its easier for a larger segment of the population to easily put it up on a TV.
