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 :)

NABC 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places.  Winner of 26 Flight A Regional KOs, 85 Regionals overall, 1 Nationwide Charity Game, 9,400+ master points.

ATB missed grand
It is considered good form for the OP to abstain, because the general idea is to learn something (listen and learn, when I post I don't comment for a couple of days to see how the conversation goes), not to press one's own point of view.
Board of Governors Input on Tournament Reorganization
This "profit-sharing" concept is a non-starter. The richest areas have the people most likely to travel extensively. The poorer areas spend extra on fabulous hospitality, sometimes to the extent of barely breaking even or worse. Why should the poorer areas not only give the bulk of master points to out-of-area ...

ATB missed grand
