about me

The good news is that I have won events in Nationals, Regionals, and sectionals. The bad news is that it was 40 years ago, and the player who won those events went away about 20 years ago, and now only comes back for short visits. Sometimes for a hand, sometimes almost for a whole session; but usually he just stands back and grimaces about how I play these days. I used to be the only person in Minnesota who had won events in Bridge and Squash. Now I play in the Friday afternoon duplicate, and play pickle ball in the park with the geriatric set. I was always a better writer than a player. I have had pieces published in the Bridge World and the ACBL bulletin. Favorite convention: mini splinter. Favorite song: Love is a mini splintered thing.  I became a bronze life master in 1975 (it was harder then) and stopped playing in tournaments for over 35 years because of work and family obligations.  Now retired so I started playing locally about six years ago in Grand Junction, Co. and for the past year in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 8 AQT32 KT7 J986
when the opponents have bid two suits, doesn't a bid in one of them show a stopper and suggest partner bid three no trump is he has the other suit stopped? I would bid three hearts to show a stopper and force. Three spades is forcing, but doesn't ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: QJT86 K QJ4 A963
I expect partner to be void, AQxxx, AKxx, for sure. Would he bid six clubs with a suit where we wold have a club loser? Possible, but doubtful. I expect him to be KQxx rather than Kxxx or KJxx so I am bidding seven. To me it is either seven ...
Can he do that?
yes .
there is a typo, it should read "partner is NOW doubling for the second time" instead of NOT doubling.
Email from BBO: ACBL NABC Online Indiv Update - First practice tourney and some event basics
Will the bots tell us what their bids mean in the practice event so we can see how they bid? I would hope the mouse over feature will not be present during the real event
New Monaco Pair
So much for the rumor that LeBron was going to get them to play for Cleveland.
Worst Convention
The same answer as for "How many spools of thread to reach the moon."
How to defend?
did north open one no trump on nine high card points? Do you have the diagram wrong?
It's Bridge Jim, but...
the bidding diagram on page four is incorrect. IT is correct on page one, but got transposed by page 4. This is disconcerting because the wrong diagram is what you see when yuu see all four hands at the end.
Who's crazy ?
the consensus of the comments seems to be that auction one is marginal to poor, and auction two is insane. If that option were there, then I think the result would be different. Describing auction one as fine is rigging the result, since the other answers are not acceptable and ...
