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.

Anticipate the Split
Page nine, third line from the bottom has a typo I believe. Shouldn't it be king instead of jack?
HELP please
I have windows 10 and firefox. I have no problem logging in, but often have the site freeze up and the explanation is that flash has crashed. In the weekly free duplicate tournament, I have started in firefox, had it freeze up or crash in the middle of a hand ...
Jeff Lehman's bidding problem: 7 AJT876 Q97642 ---
Fit jumps when you fit with the opponents?
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: AK974 JT8 T654 9
Isn"t a rebid in no trump supposed to show a balanced hand? Two no trump imvites among other bids, three no trump. This hand could lose the first five tricks in clubs. While one hand doesn't mean much, the GIB analysis of the hand in question showed it ...
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: AK974 JT8 T654 9
There are three flawed bids here. Pass tends to be an underbid with a strong five card suit and eight points. If you decide the hand is worth an invite, the The hand is not balanced and has two suits pretty wide open with a fragment in the third suit ...
An Offense After a Standard Flannery Defense
I have a copy of Flannery's book. It does not contain a section about how to proceed after direct interference after a two diamond opener except as it relates to his artificial three diamond response. It does have a system for dealing with interference after a two no trump ...
Masterpoints per minute and per dollar
I am assuming our player also plays in regionals, sectionals, and nearby nnationals. In looking at the statistics at the club where I play I find over a one year period the best players average two points a session, I average one and half points as do some others, and ...
Masterpoints per minute and per dollar
Instead of masterpoints per minute, I think you should look at minutes per masterpoint. A new player is probably doing pretty good to average one masterpoint per session at a club. If a session takes four hours, that is .25 masterpoints per hour. So one hundred masterpoints would take four ...
Who did what to whom?
I am sorry if I gave that impression. East West were very pleasant throughout.
Who did what to whom?
It wasn't then, but we are trying it now.
