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.

Are these weak 2-bids?
Hi Craig - On the first hand, just how do I "pick up" that void? :) In my partnerships, we open all weak 2's, defined as "bad hands", and the first qualifies, with the potential added protection of being 6-5. On the second, I could care less whether LHO is ...
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Rena - The professional community, as you're probably aware, would rise in concerted and vigorous opposition to a reduction in paydays. This raises the question as to who, exactly, is the clientele we're promoting and assisting? Just asking, as I certainly don't have the definitive answer . . .
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Mary Jane Farrell? :) (Couldn't help it J/K)
A Recommendation for USA Bridge
Perhaps it became to expensive and time consuming to update the revolving door of responsible person's names? (J/K)
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Many topics rolled into one Post, Rena! One thought - starting all major team games on Day 1 will likely reduce entries, perhaps considerably. Although professional teams now win all these events, other teams form during the tournament. Also, entries are typically due the night before . . . My strong opposition to drop-ins ...
YES ACBL, EBL, WBF. Corrective action is possible.
I disagree completely Lior, while respecting your opinion and view. It is my very strong belief that, if it's possible to conduct an entire NABC in the ACBL, and ultimately end with no titled champions, then something is rotten in Denmark. What is the point of holding major events ...
A Recommendation for USA Bridge
Hi Rick - Thanks for chiming in on yet another unmitigated disaster. My position on this, and other abject ACBL failures, is well known and widely disseminated. The fact that nobody in Management seems to care is particularly troubling . . .
ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
Unless, Mike, the lead a (which was stated, I believe), and the Jx is in RHO. If Declarer doesn't rise with an honor (rising is probably right), then the 9 sets up for a trick.
ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
The train went off the rails almost immediately, when the 2 bid started the admitted comical sequence. 3NT/1X = 15-17 HCP, balanced. It's the perfect bid here.
