about me

Retired from the Miami Herald, currently living in Houston with my husband Eric, whom I met playing bridge on OKB. 

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing with screens see below (my only time for sure) and finding it a piece a cake as I learned to play on OKB and knew how to alert my own bids :-)

Cheating on BBO
I played on OKBridge during that time. Still do. A novice then, I would play with my teacher, go over the hands, and then later I would look at the winner’s hand records so I could learn. One pair’s results were suspicious even to little me, ie passing ...
Roland Wald R.I.P.
Pre-BBO he was already helping novices online in our Fireside group on OKBridge. No pay just willing to fill in as teacher as needed. I will miss his Shabbat Shalom posts every week on Facebook. I’m so saddened. May your memory be a blessing.
Spingold, Vegas on Twitch!
I agree. I also like the played cards to go away. I’m going to try listening on my phone and watching the regular BBO feed on my iPad so I can have the settings I prefer. Wonderful for those of us on mobile devices who can no longer get ...
My Perceptions after 10 days in Atlanta

What are your responses if playing Ogust?
I was taught the mnemonic O SH*T Starting with 3 O is zero - bad suit bad hand S is suit - good suit bad hand H is hand - good hand bad suit T is top - good hand good suit I can remember that!
What to do
Been there. We just wrote Autowood on our cards. :)
Followup to the Well
I saved a hand of yours from Nov 29, 2016 to discuss with my partner. You were in 4th seat The bidding went: 1! - P - 1 - X- 2 - 2NT all pass 1 was precision. I was a little surprised that 2NT was natural there. Would it ...
High Level Reverses
An option is to open 1 with 5-5 in the blacks and a minimal hand. Unless you get preempted by pesky opps it's often easier to bid spades twice. Nothing is perfect obviously - pard may take you for 5-6.
2NT is (almost) never natural?
Thanks Will and Frances, I've added that good option.
BW Bridge Polls Feedback Request
Id like to see my percentage even when I take the check mark off "bid publicly".
