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.

BW Site Improvements

Grand National Teams, Round of 16
Unfortunately, ACBL Live verges on dead in that it doesn't allow mouse-over the team name to see the entire team roster :(
Grand National Slams, II
It saves beaucoup emotional trauma, after ruffing the opening lead based on a Lightner double, simply to cash an outside Ace :) Ron Smith has the experience to save the mental energy for more important situations . . .
B-Z Case Updates
So, Linda, B-Z were found clearly guilty of "illegal transmission of information", called "cheating" hereabouts, but no penalty! Reminds me of a certain Nevada parolee this morning, who professed to being "non-violent" during his entire lifetime :)

BW Site Improvements
Fantastic job, exceptionally well done, to all who work to make this impressive site even better! :)
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Could this possibly be organized bridge's first "au naturel" championship :)
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Hi David - you have just exposed the hidden elephant in the room :) It is human nature to seek the most, for the least cost. An "efficient market" controls this to an extent, leaving limited opportunities for massive bargains. However, the ACBL is a monopoly, and as you note, has cheapened ...
