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!

Hugh Ross 1937-2017
Hi Lynn - the Ring Cycle is an ordeal for some; it is about 17 hours stem to stern and is rarely performed in its entirety.
Hugh Ross 1937-2017
I believe that Pender passed away around 1991, Ken, but could be mistaken as I'm only digging into the sometimes faulty memory banks. He did win a ton with Pender, including some Majors.
Critique This Auction with Satan
Sorry Bill, no, when young I played in Ann Arbor, and occasionally at the "Metro Club" (we won their months long KO event), but only heard of Van Brooks and maybe saw him at a Sectional once or twice . . .
Critique This Auction with Satan
I lived most of my life near Hell, MI, Bill :) Its tiny post office was very popular for outgoing mail, with the Hell postmark! Inquiring minds might surmise that much of that mail was divorce papers, legal/foreclosure notices, etc . . . BTW, are you sure you didn't drop that $15 ...

A Committee to Make Recommendations Regarding an "Expert Guild"
Thanks, Jeff! Indeed, the Honors Club is way overstuffed with pros. In one way, that's good, because they cannot escape the microscope for long. I'm sure players are encouraged to report any misconduct by anyone, especially the pros, and everyone there knows who they are. On a National ...
Should I have been harsher?
What Paul said, a no-brainer analysis :)
