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.

A "TYP" Bid
For me, always make lowest cue-bid first, so a rebid of the splinter suit shows first round. I play lowest 1st or 2nd round control, so Partner's bypassing of the suit means that I need to provide a control there. Should Partner sign off, and I have what ...
6!C defensive problem
Agree on need to know methods, of course. However, the OP suggested that even the Opponents might be a bit sloppy and/or play by a bit of seat of pants. Naturally, I'd like to know if South absolutely denied 4-card 's, but that information wasn't presented ...
Committee to Restructure the BoD - Dead??
Steve, how about 25 DD's, but only 8 plus the President attend a given Board Meeting. Out of the other 24, each would attend one BoD Meeting a year. A perfect size of 9 at each meeting, and a savings of several $100's of thousands.
6!C defensive problem
Dunno the range of the 2NT rebid, but it's difficult to construct a hand with the Ace where the contract fails. Ergo, lead a lest they be discarded on Declarer's possible original QJxx holding.
Gatlinburg Regional 2017
Hi Ed - have you recently contracted diarrhea of the keyboard? :) (Or perhaps your keyboard is programmed to say the same 7-word phrase of "Online bridge is the one and only" over and over for eternity?)
Is there something better than BBO?
But if the trump Qxx is behind the trump AK . . .
Committee to Restructure the BoD - Dead??
There has never been, and will never be, a District Director that will vote for a reduction in the number of Districts and/or District Directors. In that vein, any such consideration might best have been deemed DOA (Dead on Arrival) . . . Why vote against the gravy train that you're ...
"Jeopardy" calendar
Well Ben, I know you're a bit younger than most bridge players and somewhat newer to the game . . . so, could I explain it to you this way . . . . J/K :)
Alertable or not
Andy, it's alertable as Chris Miller says. Like Chris, I didn't agree with the reason for voting "alertable" but voted anyhow. This again reminds us all, when creating a poll, to avoid adding detailed, personal reasons for the given choice . . .
Is there something better than BBO?
So far we've had suggestions that GIB is male, might be lazy, and has dominant traits rather than submissive. It would appear that GIB is actually a little person running around and monitoring many auctions, sort of like a Chess Grandmaster who will play 50 or even 100 games ...
