about me

I have been involved as a member and officer of ACBL's Unit 109 board,  as the unit and club director, and currently involved as an administrator, teacher and TD for the BBO associated Intermediate/Advanced Club.  Through the years, I have developed friendships in the bridge world, and played with or against some of the world's finest players.

Earliest was running an accidental squeeze against Easley Blackwood and receiving a compliment from him. The most memorable was keeping the Boyd/Robinson squad on the ropes in the first round of our DIstrict's GNT final; they needed the full 32 boards to beat us as the bottom seed that year.

1!h-2!s and 1!s-3!h to show 3-card limit raise in opener’s major?
What seems to have been lost in this discussion is the primary question of has "...anyone has ever utilized these bids for such purposes and what, if any, downsides there might be to doing so." So far what I have seen is a general concern that you end up on ...

Joshua Donn's bidding problem: KQx Ax KJx AT742
This reminds me of learning to bid against canape systems. When they open and it goes pass pass to you, it is almost always best to pass it out. They are almost never in their best spot.
ATB
Tuna, I never thought about the term "asymmetric post-mortems" before. I usually assess myself with 100% of the blame for partnership harmony (even when I truly believe otherwise), but now that I have a term for it, I will use it.. The time I can recall assigning the blame elsewhere ...
Congratulations to John Adams
