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, 9,400+ master points.

Toronto BoD Journal is Available
I noticed that the retiring CEO was at the Greenville Regional, collecting over $5K per week in salary, though I confess the inability to see any reason whatever for his attendance there.

According to previous posts on "beating the bots", apparently opening worst minor, then bidding 3NT, will prevent the LHO bot from leading a suit of AKQ10xx . . . so such extremely frequent psychic opening bid sure sound like a violation of the Rules of Bridge. Bidding short suits and then 3NT was ...

Hi KJ - It's actually an "Individual", which went out with the Stone Age. Alternatively, the winner will be "Player-GIB".
Ugly Call
Hi Georgiana - this hand magnifies a glaring weakness in many 1 forcing systems. I play a similar version at the insistence of one client, and we have no way to determine whether he has 11 ratty or 15 prime. It actually may have caused, at one point, an important ...
Stratford Festival Toronto NABC
Karen is spot on; this is world class theater! And, a gorgeous setting.

This is the outrage of all outrages. Knowing the proclivities of the BBO bots is not a skill normally associated with the level of expert bridge typically required to attain an NABC title :(
Gidwani is ACBL's Next CEO
Mr. Gidwani Thanks for taking on this difficult, "people-pleasing" role when most would be contemplating retirement, especially with the substantial credentials you've gained over a long and diverse career! And, for being responsive to our BW site :) You seem to have plenty of bridge exposure, which is relieving and ...
Gidwani is ACBL's Next CEO
Mr. Gidwani - I believe there is now a third thing certain in life to add to "death" and "taxes": [b]BW members will most definitely give input, and plenty of it :)[/b] (Note - admittedly spoken from the proverbial horse's mouth).
