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.

Gatlinburg Regional 2018 hits 8109 tables
Thanks, Bob, for reminding me when Gold Rush started, and kudos to the BOD for immediately recognizing the inequitable KO payouts. Regrettably, table count is down almost 25% in the ensuing decade.
Unscientific ACBL Membership Poll
Any poll that uses BW to address global issues like the entire ACBL, is already skewed. The question, which I repeated from another, has rightfully been observed as vague and/or subject to multiple interpretations. Then, the people on BW who choose to participate is a form of self-selection which ...

Yes, Art, a NABC Event should be as pure as humanly possible, whereas a top bracket of a Regional seemingly should be more relaxed and very open to the best possible immediate solution (rather than the best result possible, thanks SJ Simon) :)
