about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)




But, you don't have to use my simple but effective techniques.  I'll play what you play as well!




NABC 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places.  Winner of 26 Flight A Regional KOs, 85 Regionals overall, 1 Nationwide Charity Game, 9,500+ master points.

The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
The MP enigma had, from breaking it down into smaller pieces, approximately 1/32,000 chance of being truthful:
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
The Flat Earth Society movement continues :) Not to mention, the world was created 6,000 years ago . . . Should we not set forth and fully enforce the proper elements of proof for cheating at bridge, we will regrettably die faster than a stuck whale. One obvious consideration: Does the individual do ...
[b]#SAYNOTOCHEATS[/B] Always, in all ways! If we keep doing what we've always done, we will get what we've always gotten . . . Convicted collusive cheaters disgust me personally, and could be the ruination of the game we all love (oops, convicted cheaters don't love the game, they ...
Produce the Deuce
I've played Intermediate Jump Overcalls, Ben, forever. They show nice pluses, and I've never felt that the lack of PJO's (for which I make a simple overcall) has ever been a negative to my scores.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
The obvious solution to collusive cheating: "Would you be so kind as not to cheat against my team" :) OMG, Judy, why didn't the best minds think of that! The obvious anomaly: When the purported cheat says "I agree not to cheat", is that answer truthful or is it yet ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
So you're suggesting, Nigel, that on the 3rd, or even 4th, round of bidding, where one side has never entered the auction, that an alert to that side would cause some terrible disadvantage? As a corollary, are you also suggesting that such a pair or team would read every ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
It's actually much better, and criminal attorneys could tell me the approximate time that legal jurisprudence changed: For a very long time, it was legally impossible to prove a homicide without producing the corpse. Several decades ago, after a myriad of "obvious" first degree murderers had gone scot free ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Much of Meckwell is devoted to non-competitive bidding. They are a model of being scrupulous to alert any conventional calls, their CC is always completely filled out, and available well before any match and then with two copies on the table at all times.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
@David Carlisle: "The method of any illicit communication needs to be established before any guilt can be assigned . . . " I could not disagree more with this statement. This would lead us back to the dark ages of bridge, with a plethora of titles "won", an aftermath of hushed whispers, perhaps some ...
Master Points for Foreign Players
Who assigns "Eligibility Points" to long time, extremely experienced rubber bridge players, some of whom enter and remain at the lowest ACBL levels, and routinely massacre the field?
