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 more recently in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Is this forcing?

Is this forcing?
I believe that what most people are saying with their votes is that when you bid over the invitational bid you are accepting the invite, and thus the bid is forcing. If you didn't accept the invite then you pass two tn trump It is rare to find two ...
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
I think you should merge with the MIT group. It is all the thing in education these days: If you can't get it at your campus, you get it at another school. I believe Wellesley and MIT have this arrangement along with many other schools. Also you could contact ...
Carding with doubleton
I give count. Sometimes partner has five.
The Pandora's Box Coup
Richard Pavlicek actually read and commented on one of my posts. Check another item off the bucket list. Item 37 on the list from some years ago was finishing in the top ten in one of the contests on Richard's web site. Thanks, Richard, for maintaining a wonderful site ...
