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.

I don‘t understand Drury
I play something similar with many partners that 2 is a limit+ raise of opener's 1st/2nd seat major opener. All the clubs here allow it (heck, most allow multi), and sectionals allow it, but D20 regionals didn't allow it in their stratified pairs.
Vanderbilt Unpopularity?
That was also a hypothesis I had, but it didn't appear to be valid. The mini spingolds have been going on for a while and the 10K KO is a very recent addition and hasn't ever been popular. For example, in 2001 the Spingold had 133 teams in ...
Open Email to ACBL CEO
@Jeff My recent(!) experience has been that all parties mentioned here have been happy to answer questions that are framed in a way as to get answers. Questions about this subject and others that I have sent to ACBL Management, some BOD members, and Jay have all been answered promptly ...
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
Seattle. Spring/Summer/Fall are amazing, summers are the best I've ever seen, but the cloudy/damp winters can be pretty draining.
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
@Peg where does "very cloudy winters with intermittent light rain" fall on that list of weather occurrences? :)
I don‘t understand Drury
I witnessed a worse sequence once: P P 1 (1) 3NT
ACBL Inaction Regarding Attracting Younger Members
Hi Kevin, For marketing directly, my general inclination would have been going to the areas where competitive nerds already go: board and card game tournaments and conventions. Things like Pax, Gen Con, BGG Con seem like a great place to set up a learn bridge in a day or similar ...
ACBL Inaction Regarding Attracting Younger Members
I'm not sure I agree with the sentiment that the ACBL isn't trying. The college stipend thing seems interesting. The area I always felt was ignored was the 30 to 50 crowd. People in their teens and early 20s are going to have a lot going on after ...
Mixed USBC
Hi Jan, FYI it looks like you meant this for a closed forum but posted it publicly to everyone. FWIW, my two cents are that having it back to back with the NABC was really nice and makes it more appealing. I generally skip USBC events but if I could ...
Vanderbilt Round of 32 Vugraph matches
Always a fan of seeing the highest original seed get shown, at least for the first quarter
